Invisalign An Overview
Invisible braces are an excellent treatment option for patients who need mild to moderate orthodontic treatment. Dr. Cappy Sinclair is a Virginia Beach Invisalign dentist, helping patients gently reposition their teeth and straighten their smiles. Invisalign is used to treat a variety of orthodontic concerns including overbite, underbite, cross-bite, and crooked teeth.
Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, thanks to a special, ultra thin plastic material. Invisalign aligners are also highly flexible, making them more comfortable than other systems and the fact that they are removable is a significant benefit for most patients considering treatment. Invisalign gently repositions the teeth without causing damage to tooth enamel, gum tissue or TMJ.
"Coastal stands head and shoulders above the rest in an area possessed of offices with a dearth of progressive approaches. They have a modern environment and friendly welcoming team. It is one of the very few offices in Hampton Roads I recommend as a dentist myself."Raymond E.

Invisalign What to Expect
According to research, clear braces may be better for your dental hygiene during treatment compared to traditional metal braces. Since Invisalign aligners are removable, you can brush and floss teeth normally. By contrast, traditional metal braces can be difficult to care for and often trap food particles between the braces and teeth. Removable aligners make it possible for you to enjoy the food and drink you like without special restriction.
Invisalign is virtually invisible, almost no-one will be able to tell you are wearing clear braces. Depending on your goals, you will wear a series of aligners for approximately 2 weeks each. Most patients complete treatment in 6 – 12 months.
In addition to the esthetic and comfort advantages, Invisalign offers a number of significant clinical benefits including:
- Improved gum and tooth health during treatment because of better oral hygiene
- No metal allergies due to brackets and wires
- More predictable treatment planning with Invisalign® software
- Custom aligners tailored to fit your teeth precisely, for reduced irritation and fewer scratches
