Properly aligned teeth create a confident, gorgeous smile and tend to be in better health and easier to keep clean. Orthodontic problems (such as overcrowding of the teeth or a misaligned bite) could also create further dental health issues that may possibly have consequences for your eating and speaking abilities, which can be more expensive to treat. In an effort to help individuals reap the benefits of a healthy, beautiful grin, our office proudly offers Invisalign orthodontics to teenagers and adults in Raleigh, NC. The Invisalign system steadily maneuvers teeth through a series of removable, nearly invisible teeth aligners, allowing for a less noticeable appearance and a simple option over metal braces. Find out if Invisalign clear aligners are right for your treatment goals by setting up a consultation with Dr. Vivian Throop at City of Oaks Dental.

What Are The Benefits Of Invisalign Treatment?

Invisalign treatment at City of Oaks Dental offers many benefits as an option for Raleigh, NC patients wanting to improve their smiles. Some of the most valuable benefits include:

  • Customized clear aligners
  • Nearly unnoticeable, providing a low-profile treatment
  • Can be removed, which allows for easier chewing and hygiene
  • Generally leads to less discomfort in comparison with metal braces
  • May help with a variety of oral problems, including gaps, a bad bite, and overcrowding issues
  • Lessens discomfort that accompanies metal braces, like mouth sores
  • Leads to straighter teeth, leading to better dental health and function
  • Can help achieve increased self-confidence in your smile and overall look

Am I A Candidate for Invisalign Treatment?

Patients who prefer a discreet alternative to traditional orthodontics may be prime candidates for Invisalign clear aligners. This solution can address misaligned teeth (an open bite, crossbite, underbite, or overbite), narrow arches, crooked or overcrowded teeth, or uneven spacing between teeth. Treating such concerns could improve jaw function, comfort, and speaking and eating abilities. Clear aligners are also easier to remove from the mouth, permitting Raleigh, NC teenagers and adults to eat their favorite meals without limitations and care for their teeth without wires and brackets getting in the way. During your visit at City of Oaks Dental, our staff will take radiographs and provide an assessment to help decide if Invisalign clear aligners are suitable for your goals.

Invisalign aligners work through a custom set of discreet removable aligners that steadily guide your teeth into their proper location. To initiate your orthodontic care, a member of our Raleigh, NC team will take a digital impression of your upper and lower arches using the iTero Element™ 5D intraoral scanner to create your unique clear aligner trays. When the aligners are sent to our office, we will have you come in to try your beginning set and discuss instructions for use. The aligner trays must be worn over your teeth for no less than 20 – 22 hours each day and only taken out prior to brushing your teeth, flossing, eating foods, or drinking beverages. Every 1 – 2 weeks, you will swap out your current pair of Invisalign trays for the next in the series. We will help you book regular orthodontic checkups at City of Oaks Dental so our Invisalign team can review your orthodontic results.

Invisalign treatment will shape overcrowded teeth and improve a poor bite. These clear removable aligners from City of Oaks Dental gradually straighten teeth to enhance a patient's oral function while producing a confident, brilliant grin. Set up your visit at our Raleigh, NC dental center to find out more about the advantages of Invisalign treatment or to get started with your orthodontic care.

About Us
How should I make sure my Invisalign aligners are clean?

To achieve the best outcomes, it is essential to clean the aligner trays regularly. The recommended method for cleaning the aligners is to use lukewarm water with Invisalign Cleaning Crystals. Alternatively, there are other cleaning tablets or formulas specifically designed for cleaning aligner trays that you may find suitable.

How much does Invisalign cost?

The total cost of Invisalign treatment can differ from one patient to another due to a variety of factors. Our experienced staff will listen to your goals and concerns during your initial consultation to personalize a treatment plan that is catered to your unique needs. At that point, we can provide a more accurate estimate of the total price.

Is Invisalign treatment painful?

Not at all. Our combination of state-of-the-art equipment and an incredibly experienced team means our patients need not worry about any pain or discomfort during the procedure. However, there may be some mild discomfort in the first week or two after receiving your Invisalign. This will soon subside, however, as your teeth become accustomed to the realignment.

Can I get my teeth whitened while using Invisalign aligners?

It is generally recommended to wait until after you complete your Invisalign treatment to whiten your teeth, as the aligners may interfere with the whitening process.

Can I drink hot beverages like coffee or tea with Invisalign aligners in?

Dr. Throop advises that you should remove your Invisalign aligners before consuming hot beverages, as they can warp or distort the aligners. It's best to drink cool or lukewarm beverages with the aligners in.

Recently started Invisalign with Dr.Throop. She was insanely patient with me while getting everything started and her and the staff have made me feel beyond comfortable and like I can reach out to them for anything or any question! Absolutely amazing experience!

I have been going to City of Oaks Dental for a handful of years and they’ve always provided excellent care and service! The team is great. I leave each visit more confident with my smile following the dental work (Invisalign, etc.) and their helping to keep my oral hygiene in check! They also have a beautiful new office. 😁
