Straighten Your Teeth With Invisalign

Why Choose Invisalign?

Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, comfortable to wear, and customized to fit snugly over your teeth. Unlike traditional braces, there are no brackets or wires to worry about. Here are just a few reasons why our patients love Invisalign:

  • Discretion: Clear aligners ensure your dental treatment doesn't call attention to itself.
  • Comfort: Each aligner is custom made using state-of-the-art technology, designed to move your teeth gently and efficiently.
  • Convenience: Aligners are removable for easy cleaning and eating. Enjoy your favorite foods without restrictions.

Tailored Treatment Plans for Your Unique Smile

Your journey to a perfect smile begins with a personalized consultation with Dr. Dhulab.

Whether you're in Indian Trail or neighboring communities like Marshville, Matthews, Mineral Springs, Monroe, Waxhaw, or Wingate, our team is here to guide you every step of the way.

Is Invisalign Right for You?

Invisalign can correct a wide range of dental issues, including crowding, gaps, and bite irregularities. Ideal candidates are typically teens and adults looking for a less noticeable, flexible option for orthodontic treatment. Dr. Dhulab will assess your dental health and discuss your goals to determine if Invisalign is the right choice for you.

Understanding the Invisalign Treatment Journey

From your initial consultation to the moment you reveal your new smile, we're with you at every step. After creating your custom aligners, you'll wear each set for about two weeks before moving on to the next in the series. With regular check-ins, we'll monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments. The duration of your treatment will depend on your individual case, but many patients complete their Invisalign journey in 12 to 18 months.

Embracing Life with Invisalign

Living with Invisalign aligners is easy. You can remove them to eat, drink, brush, and floss, ensuring better oral health compared to traditional braces. Plus, without dietary restrictions, you can continue enjoying the foods you love. We'll provide all the tips and advice you need to care for your aligners and maintain your daily routine.

Invisalign FAQs

  • How often do I need to wear my aligners?
    • For best results, wear your Invisalign aligners 20 to 22 hours a day.
  • Will wearing aligners affect my speech?
    • Some people may notice a slight change initially, but this typically disappears as you become accustomed to wearing the aligners.
  • How do I clean my aligners?
    • Simply brush them gently with toothpaste and rinse in lukewarm water.
  • How much does Invisalign cost?
    • The cost of Invisalign treatment varies depending on the complexity of your case and the length of treatment. During your consultation, we will provide you with a detailed treatment plan and cost estimate. Idlewild Family Dentistry offers various financing options to make your smile transformation affordable.
  • Is Invisalign treatment painful?
    • Most patients experience minimal discomfort during the initial days of wearing a new set of aligners. This sensation is typically described as pressure and is a sign that the aligners are working to shift your teeth into their correct positions. Any discomfort usually subsides after a few days.
  • Can I remove my aligners for special occasions?
    • Yes, one of the great benefits of Invisalign is that the aligners are completely removable. You can take them out for special occasions, important meetings, or sports. Just remember to wear them 20 to 22 hours a day for the best results.
  • How do I maintain my results after Invisalign treatment?
    • To maintain your new smile, it's important to wear a retainer as directed by Dr. Dhulab. Initially, you may need to wear your retainer full time, but this will decrease to only at night over time. This will ensure that your teeth do not shift back to their original positions.
  • How long will my Invisalign treatment take?
    • The duration of your Invisalign treatment depends on the complexity of your case. On average, treatment lasts between 12 to 18 months, but you may start to see results in just a few months. Dr. Dhulab will provide you with an estimated timeline during your consultation.
  • Can I eat and drink with my aligners in?
    • It is recommended to remove your aligners when eating and drinking anything other than water. This prevents staining of the aligners and ensures that you can maintain good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing after meals.
  • How often will I need to visit the dentist during treatment?
    • You will have regular check-ups with Dr. Dhulab approximately every 4 to 6 weeks. These appointments allow us to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.
