Charleston Invisalign Preferred Provider

Invisalign is a revolutionary approach to orthodontics that eliminates the problems with traditional braces while providing patients with a comfortable, discreet option for straightening teeth.

InvisalignUneven Bite

An uneven bite can interfere with speaking and chewing, and can cause uneven and abnormal wear on the enamel. Worn enamel leaves teeth vulnerable to decay, and may require expensive veneers or crowns to correct. In severe cases, an uneven bite can lead to jaw problems. Braces, like the Invisalign system, help adjust teeth into the correct positions to create a healthy bite and straighter teeth, resulting in an attractive smile as well as greater comfort when chewing and speaking.

Invisalign Preferred Provider Program

An orthodontist who has been trained in using Invisalign and has significant experience using the system can achieve the status of “preferred provider.” Crescent Moon Orthodontics is proud to be an Invisalign Preferred Provider. When you come into our office, you’ll be seen by staff who have had years of experience applying Invisalign systems to improve the health of our patient’s teeth.

How the Treatment Works

Your orthodontist will map out a course of treatment. He will take impressions of your teeth, and your clear aligners are customized to fit your teeth. Over time, the aligners shift your teeth into the correct position. Typically, a new aligner is applied each week until the correction is complete. Since the aligners are custom designed to fit your specific treatment plan, precise adjustments are possible, providing the best possible results.
