Charlotte, NC -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/23/2010 -- Cedar Walk Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, has seen a steady increase in the number of patients seeking Invisalign Teeth Straightening Therapy. The South Charlotte practice, located in the new Cedar Walk development off Highway 521, offers traditional and cosmetic dental services - including teeth whitening, veneers and the patented Invisalign treatment. Preferred by many for their cosmetic appeal over traditional braces, Invisalign’s clear design is particularly appealing to those who want a teeth-straightening option without the use of metal braces, wires or brackets.
Invisalign treatment consists of a series of aligners that are switched out twice a month on average. The aligners are custom-made from precise digital impressions, and therapy plans differ from patient to patient, depending on individual needs. Clear aligners have many advantages over traditional metal braces. They are nearly invisible and can be removed during treatment, allowing patients to eat, drink, brush and floss normally during treatment. They are less abrasive than metal braces, due to their smooth thermoplastic construction, so teeth and gum irritation is minimal. Invisalign is effective for treating a variety of orthodontic issues, including: crowding, spacing, over bite, under bite, deep bite and open bite. Designed by leading orthodontists, the FDA approved aligners are being used by over 1,000,000 patients worldwide, with a 96% satisfaction rate.*
Cedar Walk Family and Cosmetic Dentistry provides a comprehensive screening for patients who are considering Invisalign therapy. Dr.’s Proshant Rao and Yelena Brikina and their staff of professionals map out treatment plans and take impressions and pictures of patients’ teeth for digitation purposes. Once digitized, they work with a computerized 3-D image of the teeth and plan tooth movements throughout the entire treatment timeline. Patients are shown a virtual representation of before, during and after corrections so they can see how the process will work and what their smile should look like once therapy is completed.
