Over the last few years, Invisalign has become one of the most effective and popular orthodontic treatments in North Carolina. If you're looking for a comfortable, convenient, and discreet way to realign your teeth, Invisalign should be at the top of your list.
Invisalign is a treatment used by the best orthodontists in Matthews. It straightens patients' teeth without the metal components of traditional braces. Invisalign works by using a variety of custom trays that cover your teeth. These trays gently pull your teeth into proper alignment over time. Each custom tray brings your teeth closer to their final position, resulting in a beautiful smile. Unlike braces, treatment times typically don't exceed two years. Once treatment is complete, you may need a retainer to maintain your new, healthy teeth alignment.
Since they are clear, most patients find Invisalign less noticeable than traditional braces. Unlike metal braces, you can remove Invisalign trays while eating. That way, you don't have to worry about damaging your investment with certain foods like chewing gum. And unlike metal braces, Invisalign options are popular with people of all ages, from teens to adults.
Invisalign works well for patients who have:
For most patients, Invisalign involves a streamlined, three-step process:
With so many innovating teeth straightening options in North Carolina, it can be hard to settle on the best treatment choice for your needs. At Chad Johnson Orthodontics, one of our most asked questions usually involves which treatment is better: traditional braces or Invisalign? Since every patient has different goals and needs, that question isn't always easy to answer.
A younger patient with slightly crooked teeth might benefit from the discreet features of Invisalign. Conversely, an older patient with a severe underbite might benefit more from the reliability of traditional braces.
Keep in mind the following points, which will give you a great knowledge base for orthodontic consultation:
Treatment Length: Invisalign treatment can last from six months to two years. Treatment times for traditional braces usually last from one to three years. Each time frame can vary depending on the severity of the patient's teeth problems.
Orthodontic Visits: With Invisalign, patients visit their Invisalign dentist in Matthews, NC, every three months. Patients can expect to visit every month or every other month when choosing metal braces.
Cleaning: Regular brushing and flossing is recommended for Invisalign patients. A specialized floss threading tool and regular brushing and flossing are recommended for patients with traditional braces.
Benefits: Invisalign is comfortable and discreet. Because trays are removable, there are no food restrictions involved. Traditional braces offer consistent progress, are effective for severe cases, have great reliability, and can be the best choice for patients who are sticking to a strict budget. Ready to learn more about Invisalign from Chad Johnson Orthodontics? Our knowledgeable customer service team is ready and waiting to answer your questions. When you're ready to move forward, we'll get you scheduled for your first consultation. Before you know it, you'll be fitted for Invisalign and on your way to earning a gorgeous smile.
Are you craving a beautiful smile but feel like the time has passed for metal braces? You wouldn't be the first adult to ask that question, and you won't be the last. However, the truth is that roughly 25% of our orthodontic patients are adults, not children. At Chad Johnson Orthodontics, you're never too old for braces!
We want you to know that a stunning, healthy smile is attainable no matter how many birthdays you've had. Our orthodontist in Matthews, NC, offers braces that are perfect for busy working adults. If you decide that adult braces are the way to go, you have plenty of options to consider.
From traditional metal braces that offer reliable results to more popular Invisalign treatments, a new smile is more attainable than you might imagine. During your initial visit at Chad Johnson Orthodontics, your doctor will review all of your treatment options and help you choose a plan best suited to your needs.
Just about everybody understands that a straighter smile is more appealing aesthetically than having unhealthy teeth. However, not everyone knows that properly aligned teeth actually improve your overall oral health. Here are just a few reasons why so many adults in Matthews are changing the way they think about using adult braces:
Better Oral Health: When you have bad oral hygiene, there are a number of concerning health risks to consider. Misaligned teeth can cause bacteria to build up. Over time, harmful bacteria wreak havoc on your teeth, creating problems like tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease. Thankfully, orthodontic treatments are available that can help avoid severe tooth decay, gum recession, and bone loss. You can even reduce and prevent irregular tooth enamel loss stemming from TMD and TMJ.
More Confidence: If you're feeling self-conscious about how your teeth look, you're the only one. Millions of Americans aren't happy with their oral aesthetics. Luckily, adult braces help restore confidence and can give you a smile you're proud to show off. Studies show that when you like the way your teeth look, you'll be more likely to smile. This simple act reduces stress, makes you feel happier, and can even improve your mental health. Plus, it makes people around you feel great too!
Enjoy More Foods: If you have never had serious oral issues, you might not know that eating can be painful with misaligned teeth. Adult braces can straighten your teeth and correct under and overbites for patients with severely crooked or crowded teeth. When you don't have to worry about painful chewing or biting, life is better, and you can enjoy the experience of eating any delicious meal you'd like.
Less Bad Breath: Few things are nastier than someone talking to you with bad breath. We've all been there, but it is never any less embarrassing when someone tries to subtlety offer you a mint. What most folks don't know is that misaligned teeth and bad breath go hand-in-hand. When your teeth are overcrowded or crooked, bacteria find their way between your teeth where toothbrushes can't reach. Over time, that bacteria builds up, and your breath begins to smell. When left unchecked, these bacteria can cause serious oral health problems.
Improved Speech: Having crooked teeth can make you feel self-conscious about your appearance. Unfortunately, they can also affect your day-to-day speech. If you're having problems pronouncing words because your teeth are severely misaligned, adult braces can legitimately change your life. This fact is especially true for working professionals who take part in Zoom calls, speak publicly, or work over the phone. If this sounds like you, speak to our trusted Invisalign orthodontist in Matthews, NC, about discreet ways to improve your speech and oral health at the same time.
Your child's early and teen years are a great time to consider braces. According to The American Association of Orthodontists, the best time for a child to have their first orthodontic treatment is by seven. With early orthodontic treatment, you have the chance to find and correct oral issues before they become more serious. Doing so gives your child a leg-up on other kids their age while saving you time and money in the long run.
The primary goal of early orthodontic treatments is to:
Depending on how your child's teeth develop, they may need additional orthodontic care after their permanent teeth have formed.
A few common orthodontic problems that may require treatment for children include:
The best way to learn whether your child will need early treatment is to consult with your orthodontist in Matthews, NC. Dr. Johnson, Dr. Martin C. Avey, Dr. Alexandra D. Best, and Dr. Neal Patel are all highly trained to spot subtle problems, even in children under ten. During your child's initial consultation, you can expect one of three outcomes:
If early orthodontic treatment is needed, we will create a personalized treatment plan for your child so you know exactly what lies ahead.
Our orthodontic practice in Matthews does things a little differently than others. Our doctors want to get to know you, your family, and your oral health goals. With more than 30 years of combined experience, we know that each smile our doctors help create is as unique as the person it belongs to.
That's why our practice offers several orthodontic solutions customized to your individual orthodontic needs. If you're a new patient, we know you probably have important questions that need answers. That's why new patients always receive a complimentary orthodontic consultation, so you can learn about the best treatment options for your budget and lifestyle.
At the end of the day, our goal is to make access to orthodontic treatment as available, effective, and easy as possible. Come experience why so many children, teens, and adults trust Chad Johnson Orthodontics with their oral health needs. We'd love to get to know you and your smile better today!704-454-5500

Scott Stone, a former member of the N.C. House of Representatives, gave these remarks during the public comment of the Feb. 20 Union County Board of Commissioners meeting.
I am just an engineer but I'm here representing a large number of Union County stakeholders. These stakeholders represent hundreds of millions of dollars worth of investment in Union County.
We are here tonight to offer three solutions to help address the sewer capacity crisis. I provided the clerk with a signed petition and supporting data which highlight these solutions and I've sent them to you as well in email.
So three solutions:
No. 1: You have an existing contract with the City of Charlotte for sewer. Use it. Open the flow. Open the valve.
You can send sewer flow to Charlotte's McAlpine Creek Plant today – up to 2 million gallons a day. If you agree to use that contract, if you're actually willing to send the flow to Charlotte through existing pipes, existing pumps, you add 2 million gallons a day to your current available capacity in the 12 Mile Creek basin. You go from 7.5 million gallons a day to 9.5 million gallons a day and you do that immediately.
Well, wait a minute now. Is that an expensive option because that's what some people have said and what the rumors are. Well, here's the actual numbers.
Charlotte charges you $2.46 to treat your sewer. You charge your ratepayers $8.55. You've still got a huge margin in there for profit and it actually might be cheaper to send it there because you don't have the capital costs and the debt service that would go with getting an extra 1.5 to 2 million gallons of capacity.
No. 2: Expand the 12 Mile Creek Plant and expand it with some urgency.
You've already planned ahead. The plant was planned and built for expansion. The more you expand that plant, the more cost-effective it becomes. The layout provides for expansion room, which is less for construction costs. So expanding the plant up to 9 million gallons a day as soon as possible could actually save money for your existing ratepayers now.
You might say that, “Well, that's already underway. We're already in the design. We're already expanding that.”
Well just this week or last week, I've heard that what was supposed to go out for bid this month is actually being delayed and now it won't go out for bid for construction until June. So we've already lost four months in the process of something that's desperately needed.
No. 3: Continue to use the system development fees to protect the existing ratepayers.
We are not here today to ask that you reduce fees. These fees, which used to be called capacity fees, are incredibly valuable tools to ensure that utilities have the money needed to make the investments in pipes, in treatment and in other infrastructure.
We're recommending that you continue to set these rates at a level that protects your existing taxpayers. Let me say that again – protects your existing taxpayers with using those fees.
The cost of expansion should be done by the ones who are doing the expanding and you get $7,400 per house in terms of capacity fees, which is huge revenue.
These are only three options that we're recommending for immediate action. You've got other challenges to face but they minimize risk, they provide value to your existing taxpayers and they provide you a little bit of a runway so that you can evaluate your other needs and get momentum flowing again in Union County.
County Manager Brian Matthews responded to Scott Stone’s remarks during the manager’s reports at the end of the meeting.
Currently we actually have a contract with Charlotte where we could send up to 3 million gallons worth of flow per day to Charlotte for them to treat.
I want to make sure that the board actually understands that there are other costs that we pay them that are not necessarily shown in that treatment cost. We pay a capital cost and that usually runs between $300,000 and $400 000 annually. We also pay for surcharges.
Charlotte treats us as an industrial user. They can do that. That's their system. They charge us an additional amount of surcharge for every gallon of flow that we send and we budget about $750,000 for that annually. The more flow we send, the more that surcharge will be.
I'm not saying those aren't options but obviously there are other costs that we have to deal with.
The other thing that I want to clarify is while we have a diversion line that we can send flow from our 12 Mile Creek Plant, we can't guarantee at this point in time that we could send the full 3 million gallons to Charlotte in their system.
We have done some evaluations and worked with the City of Charlotte on that matter.
They've been very clear that they don't have the ability to increase our capacity, so they don't see the ability to if we wanted to go from three to four or five, they don't have that ability.
They say they can serve us from a treatment perspective but what there may be a problem is the actual line sizes to get three million gallons all the way to their treatment plant. We don't know the answer to that, so there could be some capital costs if we said we want to send all 3 million gallons to your plant. We might have to see that there are some additional capital costs. We don't know the answer to that.
We can obviously send flow and have been sending flow in our diversion line and that is an option but I also want the public and the board to understand that when you divert flow, you're not increasing capacity. We wouldn't go from 7.5 to 9 million. That's not how that works.
We're actually reducing the amount of flow in 12 Mile, so what that does is our actual flows would go down and then that would certainly gain some potential capacity in that plant because your actual flows are going down. But you don't realize those actual flows right away because we do a 12-month rolling average. So it takes months before you realize any potential capacity savings from that.
So while it is an option and there are things we can do with it, we treat that more as an emergency valve. We use that for peak flows and wet weather flows. We don't use it as a capacity flow.
Now if the board said, “We want you to do that for a temporary period while maybe going through the expansion process for 12 Mile Creek” because that is a two to three-year construction time frame. If we got to a point where our treatment plant was so close and we couldn't really permit anything, we could look at tweaking out some additional capacity by lowering those flows but again you don't realize them right away. It's over the 12-month period. We would always recommend we use it as a temporary solution, not as a permanent capacity solution.

A bill that would reduce the number of bids required for the state to contract house repairs after a disaster passed a N.C. House Committee on Wednesday. House Speaker Pro Tempore Sarah Stevens, R-Surry, and House Majority Leader John Bell, R-Wayne, were co-sponsors of HB119, Increase Informal Bid Threshold which would give the Office of Resiliency and Recovery an exemption to the state requirement for competitive bids. In the case of disaster repairs, the office would only have to get competitive bids for work over $250,000, which are mostly homes that have to be completely replaced.
“We just want to see it stop being spent on hotel rooms,” said Stevens. “We’ve spent $15 million in hotel rooms rather than getting these people back in their homes. We want to see the productive use of this money to build a home that people can actually get back into.”
The bill comes after multiple committee hearings uncovered extensive delays by the Cooper administration in recovery for victims of Hurricane Matthew six years ago and Hurricane Florence four years ago. The Office of Resiliency and Recovery (NCORR), set up by Cooper in 2016, is responsible for helping victims get back into homes, either repaired or replaced, but according to witnesses who spoke to the committee of lawmakers, bureaucratic management delays made the process far from efficient.
In legislative hearings in September and December of 2022, lawmakers criticized NCORR because it received $778 million in federal dollars to help people hurt by Hurricanes Matthew and Florence, yet some remain homeless years later. Victims, builders, and managers from South Carolina, where recovery was much more efficient, testified that the NCORR policies, project management, and case manager turnover created the delays.
As of December 2022, 115 families were still without homes from the 2016 and 2018 storms. Sen. Brent Jackson, R-Sampson, said at the December hearing that commission staff visited 60 homesites this fall and found contractors working at just one of them. Stevens said at the meeting that the repair process should prioritize elderly and disabled victims, which it currently does not.
There is a deadline for getting these projects completed. The federal government requires the state to spend the $778 million by 2025 for Matthew and 2026 for Florence.
“Any thoughts about guardrails around this project, about misuse of these funds, or your thoughts about building some systems into this that might stop that from happening?” Rep. Rudow, D-Buncombe, asked on Wednesday.
In addition to oversight from the N.C. General Assembly, the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development audits the program.
“There’s a lot of accountability built into this, and the oversight committee is asking the same questions,” said Bell. “I would say, at this point, I don’t think there could be a bigger microscope on this project than there is right now.”
NCORR is scheduled to give another update to lawmakers on March 15.
