Blue Ridge Orthodontics is proud to be among the top 1% of Invisalign® providers in North America for the second consecutive year. This is the highest distinction that can be reached as an Invisalign provider. We are the first office in Western North Carolina to earn this honor and are a VIP partner with Invisalign.
Our extensive experience and knowledge about Invisalign mean you can trust us to advise you about whether Invisalign is right for you or your child. It also means that we have access to the most elite group of technicians and customer service representatives at Invisalign.
What’s so special about Invisalign?
Invisalign uses virtually invisible aligners or trays to gradually move your teeth into place for a beautiful smile. A series of clear trays are made that are unique to you, replacing traditional metal braces. Our doctors will tell you how long to wear each tray — usually one or two weeks — and when to switch to the next one.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
If Invisalign is right for you, there are lots of advantages over metal braces.
Discreet: Nearly invisible, no one will notice that you’re wearing Invisalign.
Removable: Take out your aligners to eat, drink, brush and floss. No wire or brackets means unrestricted eating, nowhere for food to get caught and nothing to break.
Comfortable: The smooth, closely fitted trays don’t irritate like wires or brackets can.
Convenient: Play a sport or instrument? Keep up with your activities without worries or changes in routine.
Easy: Fewer appointments are needed, since you just switch to the next tray instead of having an in-office braces adjustment. And the appointments you do have take less time.
Fun: We’ll show you how your teeth will look at the end of treatment right when you begin! Instead of imagining how much better your smile can be, you’ll be able to see it for yourself.
How do I get started with Invisalign?
Come in for a free new patient exam! Because of our extensive Invisalign knowledge, you’ll likely be a candidate for Invisalign. Our doctors will complete your exam and go over your treatment options.
Starting treatment is easy. Blue Ridge Orthodontics uses 3D computer imaging with an iTero scanner, so no messy bite impressions are needed. The 3D scans are so precise, you can even see your stages of treatment right at the start.
How long will Invisalign treatment take?
Each patient is different, but most treatment takes 12 to 18 months. After your scan, you’ll receive a set of trays and instructions for wearing them. You’ll wear each tray for 20 to 22 hours a day for one to two weeks, then switch to the next.
The doctors and orthodontic assistants at Blue Ridge Orthodontics will check your progress and answer any questions as you go. And in some cases, there are ways to speed up treatment by up to 50% with Propel Orthodontics or AcceleDent Aura.
