It’s never too late to have the smile of your dreams! Modern Family Dental Care offers Invisalign braces in Charlotte and Concord, NC. As an Invisalign® Preferred Provider, our dental practice locations offer Invisalign® clear aligner therapy to give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign® is an alternative to traditional metal braces. Invisalign is made from a transparent thermoplastic material, so they’re hardly noticeable. Invisalign uses a series of custom-made aligners that are changed approximately every two weeks to gently and gradually reposition teeth.
Why Should I Get Invisalign?
Invisalign offers a level of comfort and convenience you can’t get with traditional braces. While there are definitely other orthodontic options on the market, if our Charlotte or Concord dentist determines you are a good candidate for Invisalign®, you can feel confident you’ve made a great choice for your smile. The trays are comfortable for the sensitive tissues of your gums and cheeks, and they can even be removed so you can eat your favorite foods and brush your teeth as you normally would. There are quite a few advantages that Invisalign offers over tradition braces:
- Aligners are invisible, smooth, and comfortable. Traditional braces are made from wires connected to metal brackets glued to your teeth. These wires often poke and irritate your gums and cheeks. Invisalign is made from a smooth plastic that will not hurt your mouth.
- Invisalign is removable and easy to maintain. Traditional braces make it difficult to brush and floss your teeth, where as Invisalign is removable, allowing you to brush and floss your teeth hassle free. Since traditional braces are glued to your teeth, you will have to eliminate some foods from your diet that would get stuck in your braces such as caramel, popcorn, and gum. With Invialign, you can eat whatever foods you want, worry free.
- Straightening your teeth is good for your health, not just your smile. When your teeth are widely spaced, or over crowded, they can cause pain to your gums, and can even lead to serious health issues. Straightening your teeth makes it easier to clean your teeth can alleviate any discomfort.

1) How do I care for my Invisalign?
Be sure to rinse off your Invisalign to get rid of any plaque and saliva. It’s also important to soak your aligners in a solution such as Retainer Brite or the official Invisalign cleaning crystals. Prior to inserting your Invisalign ensure you are brushing and flossing your teeth.
2) How long does treatment take?
Treatment typically lasts anywhere from 9 to 18 months. However, the duration depends on several factors your dentist will discuss with you.
3) Is Invisalign painful?
You may experience discomfort several days after you begin using Invisalign. Typically, people describe the feeling as pressure, which results from the aligner shifting your teeth toward its new position. Any discomfort should subside in several days.
