Invisalign Clear Braces

Yes! Our Apex dental office has clear braces that can align your smile in comfort and style. 

At Olive Chapel Family Dentistry, we love helping our patients design the smile of their dreams. 

Often, this includes straightening crooked, protruding, or overcrowded teeth. Many adult patients forego necessary orthodontic treatment due to concerns of noticeable, traditional metal braces. We can appreciate that some professions or social settings aren't conducive towards brackets and wires, which is why we're proud to offer Invisalign clear braces at our dentist office in Apex.

Many patients love different aspects of invisible braces—starting with their removable aspect. Traditional metal braces can make teeth cleaning difficult, but clear braces are removable and allow for the wearer to eat and drink what they want, and clean their teeth immediately after meals.

Metal braces can hurt and feel uncomfortable, but Invisalign clear aligners are made from smooth and comfortable plastic.

Apex dentist, Dr. Dustin Prusik, DDS, provides high-quality and gentle dentistry to every patient. Patient education is extremely important at our dental office, and we are more than happy to take as much time as necessary to explain how Invisalign works, and if it is a good dental procedure for patients.

Invisalign is a well-known and reputable brand that has revolutionized the road to beautiful, straight teeth. If you are interested in redesigning your smile and bringing your best aspects out, schedule a consultation for Invisalign at Olive Chapel Family Dentistry. 

When we think of Invisalign in Apex, NC, we consider all the advantages, including a straight smile, teeth that are easier to care for, and improved oral health. However, there are disadvantages to everything when you think about it.

Let’s explore a few disadvantages of Invisalign clear aligners.

#1 You Have to Wear Your Aligners for at Least 22 Hours Per Day

You might think of this as a disadvantage, even though you must wear traditional braces constantly. Still, for anyone who does not want to wear a discreet aligner most of the time, it is crucial to wear your Invisalign!

#2 You Can Misplace Your Aligner

Because Invisalign is removable, you can misplace your aligner easily. We recommend always keeping it in its case when eating and cleaning your teeth. If you place it on a plate, you risk accidentally tossing it in the trash.

#3 Your Treatment Timeline

With any orthodontic system, your treatment is not finished just because it’s time to stop wearing your aligners. After treatment, your dentist fits you with a clear retainer to maintain your teeth in their new positions.

Straight teeth contribute to improved self-esteem and better oral health. With straight teeth, you can smile with confidence and brush and floss more effectively.

Invisalign in Apex, NC and traditional braces are efficient ways to accomplish an aligned smile. These time-tested orthodontic treatments can correct the following:

  • Crooked, twisted, overlapping, and misaligned teeth
  • Unusual spacing or unsightly gaps between teeth
  • Bite alignment problems, including overbite

Traditional braces and Invisalign have similar treatment timeframes, but in some cases, Invisalign may be the faster option.

A 2019 study found that clear aligners shortened the treatment timeframe—compared with traditional braces—in the segmented moving of teeth into their desired positions. Additionally, Invisalign is customized continuously during treatment as you move through your aligner series, which may also contribute to a faster treatment timeframe.

During your initial orthodontic consultation, your dentist will let you know if Invisalign is the faster option for you and how long you’ll be in treatment.
