Straighten Adult Teeth with Invisible Braces in Greensboro

Most adults cringe at the thought of having metal braces over the age of 18. As we age, the lower teeth naturally shift and spaces tighten, often causing once perfect teeth to crowd and mis-align. It is very common today for adults in their 30s – 60s to desire to straighten their teeth again with second generation invisible braces or clear teeth aligners. Thanks to the advancements in dental technology, invisible braces and clear teeth aligners offer an alternative to old school metal train track braces.

What are Invisible Braces or Aligners?

Clear teeth aligners are a progressive series of removable, nearly invisible, plastic shell trays that snap over your teeth. The number of aligners and treatment times needed to correct misaligned teeth varies based on the individual’s orthodontic issues and the movements needed to correct them.

How Does It Work?

Mango Dental will take a 3D oral scan of your mouth at our office, and then the aligners are computer generated to gently and progressively alter the position of your teeth until they are correctly aligned. As you wear them, they apply gentle pressure on your teeth to gradually reposition them. If you have mild to moderate orthodontic problems, aligner treatments may be the orthodontic solution you’ve been looking for. Invisible braces are smooth, comfortable, and nearly indistinguishable.

Invisible braces are a slower, but extremely efficient process. Computers will calculate exactly how your teeth will shift. Typically, each aligner is worn for 1 week at a time, at least 22 hours a day, and moves teeth a fraction of a millimeter at a time. You will receive a new set of aligners every two weeks. Aligners must be removed when you eat or drink and when brushing and flossing. Friends and family will never know about this journey that your teeth are taking. Before you know it, your teeth will be perfectly aligned. Say hello to that beautiful, confident smile!
