Skilled & Time-Tested Invisalign® Treatment

At Mt. Pleasant Dental Care, we are pleased to offer Invisalign treatment to adults and responsible teens as part of our orthodontic offerings. This is an excellent option for patients looking for an alternative to traditional braces. Invisalign treatment consists of clear dental trays made of durable plastic. The trays are customized to fit the contours of your mouth and teeth, applying gentle pressure to push them into their desired positions.

Some of the bite problems that are commonly corrected with Invisalign orthodontic treatment include mild to moderate cases of:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Unwanted gaps between teeth

Dr. Croy will assess your teeth and determine if you are an ideal candidate for treatment. Our team will use our iTero™ scanner to take accurate digital impressions of your teeth. Using the 3D images, we can begin planning your treatment digitally. This allows us to control every variable involved to ensure that treatment is predictable and efficient. You'll also be able to see how your smile will look when treatment is complete. From there, we'll send off your digital scan and impression to a trusted local lab to craft a series of trays for your smile. Generally, each tray should be replaced every two weeks as your teeth become straighter.

4 Benefits of Invisalign Treatment

There are several advantages to Invisalign for you to enjoy. Also, you'll have fewer dental appointments since we map out your treatment from the start, and you'll get to switch to the next set of aligners in the comfort of your home.

Here are a few of the qualities that make Invisalign clear braces such a popular treatment choice:

  1. Comfortable: Metal braces can be uncomfortable at first installation and when the archwire is tightened. While there can be some soreness in the first day or two after receiving a new aligner, this is typically mild and goes away quickly. The aligner trays are smooth, comfortable, and fit well.
  2. Removable: Clear braces can be removed from the mouth to make brushing, flossing, eating, and playing sports more convenient.
  3. Discreet: Clear aligners are inconspicuous, and most people won't even notice you're wearing them. Thus, you can correct your smile discreetly.
  4. Faster Treatment: The average Invisalign treatment typically takes 12-18 months from start to finish.

FASTBRACES® for Straighter Teeth

We understand that some patients wish their teeth were straighter but are apprehensive about undergoing traditional orthodontic treatment because of the long treatment time. In spite of the great results that traditional braces produce, the thought of having them for a year or two may be a deterrent. Mt. Pleasant Dental Care is excited to offer FASTBRACES to help bridge the gap between traditional braces and nothing at all. Its innovative bracket system shortens treatment time while still being able to treat a wide range of malocclusions. The triangular brackets and square-like nickel-titanium wire reach down to the root of your teeth for comprehensive orthodontic treatment.

Teeth alignment and straightening with conventional braces is typically done in two steps. The crown is directed into proper alignment, and then the tooth's root is moved. Each stage may take a whole year, which is why treatment with conventional braces often lasts two years. With FASTBRACES, the two-step process is combined into a single process. The braces move both the crown and the root simultaneously, speeding up treatment time. In fact, you can achieve quality results in as little as 100 days.

In addition to the significant reduction in the length of treatment, several other benefits make FASTBRACES a great orthodontic option for many patients. Some of these benefits include:

  • Dramatic reduction in pain and discomfort
  • Does not require extraction
  • Easier to clean around the brackets
  • Safe and effective
  • Dramatic results in half the time of traditional braces
