The Invisalign Process  Charlotte, NC

The Invisalign® Process Explained at Scott A. Young DDS

Scott A. Young DDS in Charlotte, NC, offers a clear path to a straighter smile with Invisalign®. This advanced orthodontic treatment uses a series of custom-made, virtually invisible aligners to gradually shift your teeth into their proper position. Here’s what you can expect from the Invisalign® process at our clinic.

Step-by-Step Invisalign® Treatment:

  • Consultation: Your journey begins with a consultation where Dr. Young assesses your dental needs and determines if Invisalign® is the right option for you.
  • Customization: Using 3D computer imaging technology, we take precise impressions of your teeth to customize your aligners.
  • Treatment Begins: Once your aligners arrive, you’ll start wearing them for 20 to 22 hours a day, changing to a new set every 1-2 weeks as directed.
  • Regular Check-ups: You’ll have periodic check-ups to monitor your progress and ensure your treatment is on track.

Benefits of Choosing Invisalign®:

  • Discreet: Aligners are virtually invisible, offering a less noticeable alternative to traditional braces.
  • Comfort: Custom fit to your teeth, Invisalign® aligners are smooth and comfortable to wear.
  • Convenience: Aligners are removable for easy cleaning and when eating or drinking.
  • Effective: Suitable for a wide range of alignment issues, from simple to complex cases.
