Treatment You’ll Smile About
With Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen, you can get a beautiful, healthy smile with minimal interference in your day-to-day life. The treatment involves a series of custom, clear, BPA-free plastic aligners that are not only removable, but also virtually invisible! To find out if you or your child could benefit from our Raleigh, Durham or Cary Invisalign or Invialign Teen treatment, schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Clay VanderWall today.
Dr. VanderWall plans out your treatment on a computerized, 3D model of your mouth. He then sends his specifications to the Invisalign lab, so the aligners can be printed according to his prescription. The clear aligners are precisely calibrated and crafted to achieve certain tooth movements at each stage of your treatment plan. When worn, the aligners exert continuous, gentle pressure to shift the teeth into place. As you make your way through the series of Invisalign aligners, your smile gradually takes shape week by week until the final prescribed alignment is achieved.
Invisalign Teen works using the same principles as Invisalign for adults. However, Invisalign Teen aligners are designed especially for teenagers and have features such as eruption tabs to accommodate erupting teeth. There are also a few free replacement aligners included in the system to give parents peace of mind.
Invisalign or Invisalign Teen?
Invisalign aligners are made from clear, smooth plastic and they slip over your teeth. Most people won’t notice you’re wearing them.
The aligners are custom designed for the perfect fit. Plus, they don’t have brackets and wires, so they won’t cause irritation or injuries.
Eat and Do What You Love
The clear aligners are removable. That means there are no food restrictions, oral hygiene is a breeze, and you can take them out to play an instrument or wear a mouthguard for sports.
Your aligners are designed upfront based on Dr. VanderWall’s prescription. They don’t require adjustments or tightening, so visits are shorter. Since nothing can break on them, you’ll never have to worry about repair appointments.
