Invisalign in Apex, NC
Living with teeth that overlap or are crooked can cause you to be embarrassed about your smile. You may feel self-conscious about smiling or talking to others, and this can impact your personal and professional relationships.
If you have considered the possibility of straightening your teeth but you don’t like the idea of wearing metal braces, Invisalign may be an ideal solution for you.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to straighten your teeth instead of braces. These are created using 3-D technology that allows Dr. Cordes to customize your Invisalign treatment plan.
The trays are designed to fit comfortably so they don’t interfere with your daily activities, and because they are clear, they aren’t noticeable. They are also easy to remove for meals, brushing, and flossing. Patients enjoy the fact that Invisalign doesn’t require any changes to their diets or home care routines.
You will wear each set of trays for two weeks, leaving them in at least 22 hours per day. Because you are able to change your trays at home, your treatment requires fewer visits with Dr. Cordes than traditional orthodontics would. Invisalign works efficiently and discreetly to align your teeth and improve your smile.
The Benefits of a Beautiful Smile
You will certainly feel the effects right away when you are confident about your smile and excited about sharing it with the world. Did you know that aligning your teeth also benefits your oral health?
Teeth that overlap are more difficult to brush and floss, making them harder to keep clean. This can result in issues such as tooth decay or gum disease developing more easily and being harder to treat.
A bite that is misaligned also contributes to issues with your jaw joint such as TMJ, or temporomandibular joint disorder, which can cause headaches, jaw issues, and facial pain.
A straighter smile is not only more appealing to your appearance; it is also an asset to your oral health.
Is Invisalign Right for Me?
Invisalign works well for many patients; however, it cannot correct complex bite issues. Dr. Cordes is a certified Invisalign provider, and he can determine if this treatment is right for your needs with a thorough examination, photos, and x-rays of your teeth.
If you move forward with Invisalign, Dr. Cordes can even show you what your aligned smile will look like when it’s completed using 3-D technology!
