Some of our patients never wore traditional braces as a child, however, today they seek to have teeth that are in better alignment. Another group of patients may in fact have worn braces in earlier years but still hope for straighter teeth. Through advanced dental technology at DentalWorks - Fort Mill at Tega Cay, SC, custom straightening trays, such as Invisalign, can correct the teeth. Invisalign straightening trays uses a series of custom-made aligner trays to gradually move the teeth straight. These almost invisible fit tightly on the teeth and are kept on for at least 22 hours a day. The aligners are typically only removed for teeth brushing, eating, and drinking certain liquids. Clear tooth aligners, such as Invisalign from our dentists at DentalWorks - Fort Mill can effectively enhance the teeth and create a dazzling smile.

Our dentists and the staff at DentalWorks - Fort Mill give each patient the knowledge so you know how to take care of and wear their trays, and explain to the patient about how important it is to keep in the aligners in for the majority of the day. Straightening aligners are usually worn for approximately 10-14 days before the next set of aligners are then given. This is determined based on the progression of the teeth movement. At each check-up at DentalWorks - Fort Mill, our dentists will give the patient an accurate measure of how many more weeks they will be required to wear Invisalign.
