Many patients did not wear traditional braces when they were young, however, today they wish to have straighter teeth. Another pool of individuals may actually previously wore braces at one time but still want straighter teeth. Because of advanced technology at DentalWorks - Wilmington at Wilmington, NC, invisible aligners, such as Invisalign, can align the teeth. Invisalign uses various sets of plastic aligner straightening trays to gently and slowly reposition the teeth into a straighter position. These see-through trays fit snugly on top of the teeth and are worn for the majority of the day. They are generally only taken off for drinking coffee or wine, eating, and teeth brushing. Invisalign from our dentists at DentalWorks - Wilmington can successfully straighten the teeth for a more attractive smile.

What to Expect
If the decision is made that Invisalign is the most effective solution for teeth straightening needs, treatment begins with digital imaging of the mouth so that the trays can be produced. Our dentists and the staff at DentalWorks - Wilmington show each patient how to wear and care for their aligners, and talk to the patient about the importance of making sure leave the aligners in for 20-22 hours a day. Aligning trays are to be worn for 2-3 weeks before the next round of aligners are then provided. This is based on the how fast the teeth move. When the patient comes in for their appointments at DentalWorks - Wilmington, our dentists will provide the patient a better estimate of the length of time they will need to wear Invisalign.
Once the patient's teeth are in proper alignment, it is crucial that the patient wear an Invisalign Vivera setting retainer to maximize the results.

For overall great dental health, patients should continue to visit our dentists at DentalWorks - Wilmington twice a year and continue a diligent home oral plan.
