If you need to straighten your teeth but don’t like the idea of wearing metal braces, Invisalign® is a valuable alternative option. Instead of using cumbersome brackets and wires to re-align your bite, Invisalign® uses clear plastic teeth aligners that are custom-designed to guide your teeth back into position.

Invisalign® is capable of treating a wide range of teeth alignment cases, but it is not a universal solution for everyone. Invisalign® generally works best when it is used to treat minor cases of:

  • Gapped teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowding

Many severe cases of misalignment can be corrected with Invisalign® as well, but your candidacy will vary on a case-by-case basis. For example, if you have missing or unerupted teeth, it may be necessary to perform other treatment steps apart from (or in addition to) Invisalign®. During a consultation with Dr. Boles, your teeth and bite will be examined to determine what Invisalign® can accomplish for you.

If you live in the Wilson, Greenville, Goldsboro, or Rocky Mount areas of North Carolina and would like more information about Invisalign®, please contact us today to schedule a consultation with the Wilson Invisalign® dentists at Boles, Ham, Dixon & Boles.
