Dental Practice Updates


At ManiDental Family Practice, we have been working hard to improve our dental office. You will likely notice some changes the next time you visit. We are proud to show off some of the updates and renovations we have made to the waiting room, parking lot, and exterior areas of the practice.

Waiting Room

We renovated the waiting room in our dental office. When you enter the front entrance, you will immediately notice an open, welcoming area refreshed with updated paint. We’ve also hung up new paintings, installed a TV, and added more chairs so you can feel at home while you wait for your dental appointment.

Parking Lot and Exterior

We updated the parking area around our Elkin dental office by cleaning it up, planting new trees, and paving it for easier parking. We would like to give a shout out and huge “thank you” to Todd for helping us fulfill our vision with the trees.

Our parking lot also now has marked handicap spaces to ensure everyone has easy access to the entrance. There is plenty of space for both our dental staff and our patients to park.

Invisalign: An Alternative To Braces

Invisalign serves as an optimal alternative to braces for patients who need to close small gaps or straighten crooked teeth to renew the appearance of their smile. Invisalign is a teeth-straightening treatment that applies a custom-made, clear plastic aligner in place of traditional metal braces.

At ManiDental, we use Invisalign for mild spacing issues, and it serves as an excellent treatment option for minor tooth movement. We offer Invisalign in Elkin, NC, as a treatment option for patients who have severe crowding or spacing issues or want to make significant changes to their bite. A dentist or orthodontist best administers these treatments. 

If you’re considering Invisalign, schedule an appointment or contact us at ManiDental Family Practice!

Invisalign FAQs:

What is the treatment process?

Invisalign isn’t for everyone, so your dentist will first take a look at your teeth and bite to decide if you’re fit for it. If you are, an image of your teeth will be sent off to make a suitable custom aligner. You’ll be required to change to the next aligner every two weeks and come in for a checkup every six weeks to ensure that all is going accordingly.

What is the average treatment time for Invisalign?

The treatment duration varies with different cases. An average of 6 months to 1 year is required for minor cases. However, this is dependent on how much your teeth need to be moved and how well you adhere to the stipulated number of times you ought to wear the aligners each day.

How much does Invisalign cost?

The cost of Invisalign is the same as that of traditional braces. Also, the severity of your case determines the cost.
