Many patients did not need traditional braces when they were young, however, today they wish to have straighter teeth. Another pool of individuals may actually previously wore braces at one time but still want straighter teeth. Because of advanced technology at DentalWorks - Carmel Village at Charlotte, NC, invisible aligners, such as Invisalign, can align the teeth. Invisalign uses various sets of plastic aligner straightening trays to gently and slowly reposition the teeth into a straighter position. These see-through trays fit snugly on top of the teeth and are worn for the majority of the day. They are generally only taken off for drinking coffee or wine, eating, and teeth brushing. Invisalign from our dentists at DentalWorks - Carmel Village can discreetly straighten the teeth for a more attractive smile.

"I am someone who cringes at the thought of the dentist. I have always dreaded appointments and embarrassingly, will try to avoid it at all costs. I just had my new patient appointment at DentalWorks and left feeling so relieved! Their staff was the friendliest, personable, competent, comforting staff I have ever experienced in the medical field. They made sure I was comfortable with every detail including running my insurance for every single procedure to tell me what my exact out of pocket expense would be for each charge before I decided if I wanted it done or not. I truly felt like I was the only patient in the office even though I know that was not the case. I was absolutely floored with how well I was treated and how pleasant of an experience it was. I HIGHLY RECCOMEND THEM!"- H.P. / Google / Aug 21, 2017

What to Expect
If the decision is made that Invisalign is the most effective solution for teeth straightening needs, treatment begins with digital imaging of the mouth so that the trays can be developed. Our dentists and the staff at DentalWorks - Carmel Village help each patient to understand how to wear and care for their aligners, and talk to the patient about the importance of making sure leave the aligners in for 20-22 hours a day. Aligning trays are to be worn for 2-3 weeks before the next round of aligners are then provided. This is based on the progress of how rapidly the teeth move. When the patient comes in for their appointments at DentalWorks - Carmel Village, our dentists will provide the patient a better estimate of the length of time they will need to wear Invisalign.
Once the patient's teeth are in proper alignment, it is crucial that the patient wear an Invisalign Vivera setting retainer to sustain the results. Most patients need to wear their retainer in place when they sleep at night. For overall great dental health, patients should continue to visit our dentists at DentalWorks - Carmel Village twice a year and continue a diligent home oral plan.
The price for Invisalign will fluctuate based on the complexity pertaining to the individual's needs, and how many aligner sets that will be needed. Orthodontic insurance may cover a certain amount of the expense. This varies depending on the patient's coverage. The staff at DentalWorks - Carmel Village will determine what the patient's benefits are so that an accurate fee can be given by our dentists during the patient's initial visit.
