Invisalign An Overview
Dr. Durning Moore is a Charlotte, NC Invisalign® provider. He offers the convenience of orthodontic treatment using clear aligners that are comfortable, discreet and effective for mild to moderate concerns. Invisalign is a leading brand of invisible braces for teens and adults who can benefit from orthodontic treatment but do not want the embarrassment of wearing traditional metal braces.
Dr. Moore has advanced training in the diagnosis and treatment of bite problems. He often recommends Invisalign to reposition teeth and improve bite function. We can also provide alternative crooked teeth treatments for mild issues using cosmetic dentistry services.
What are the benefits associated with Invisalign?
Invisalign can offer you a range of lifestyle and treatment benefits to take into consideration:
- Aligners are made of a unique hard-soft material that is comfortable and does not irritate the gums.
- Removable aligners allow you to continue enjoying your normal diet and favorite foods.
- Aligners can be removed for daily oral hygiene and routine dental care for maximum removal of bacteria and plaque that can lead to decay or tooth stains.
- Most patients will complete treatment in 12-15 months.
Am I a candidate for Invisalign?
Dr. Moore will meet with you and evaluate all aspects of your bite and dental health. Invisalign is best for patients with mild to moderate orthodontic concerns or malocclusion, including adult patients experiencing relapse after previously wearing braces.
Invisalign may be recommended to treat:
- Over bite
- Under bite
- Cross bite
- Crooked teeth
If you have a more complex bite problem, we may refer you to a local orthodontist for appropriate treatment.
