Invisalign® is growing in popularity with our Rocky Mount-area patients, and it’s easy to see why. Invisalign® offers an opportunity to re-align your bite in a comfortable, inconspicuous fashion that’s perfect for professionals who can’t afford to be seen with traditional metal braces.

If you’ve heard of Invisalign®, then you might well be wondering if you’re a good candidate for the procedure. The good news is that most people who are candidates for traditional metal braces are also sound candidates for Invisalign®.

But Invisalign® is not right for everyone. The ideal candidate for Invisalign®:

  • Is over the age of 14
  • Has relatively mild orthodontic issues – Invisalign® is not ideal for patients with severe alignment problems
  • Suffers from an overbite, underbite, crossbite or irregularly spaced teeth
  • Is willing to commit to a timeline of approximately one to two years for treatment

Of course, the only way to know for sure if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign® is to arrange a consultation and examination at our office. Our dentists will thoroughly examine your teeth and jaw to determine if Invisalign® is the right choice for you.

If it is, we’re sure you’ll be thrilled with the results achieved by this effective alternative to traditional braces.
