They are uncomfortable, they require a lot of office visits, food gets stuck in them. Those are just a few of the issues. For those people though, there is another option out there in North Carolina.
Invisalign will straighten your teeth through the use of clear aligners instead of braces. These aligners are removable and virtually invisible, which means you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing, and you can still eat and drink what you want. You can also brush and floss normally to maintain healthy gums and teeth since there are no wires, metal or brackets.

Each time you replace your aligner, your teeth will shift.

Short-term treatment available for minor cases that can be solved in as little as 3 to 4 months.
