If you have a desire for straighter teeth, but aren’t interested in wearing traditional braces, discreet solutions like Invisalign are perfect for you. Many patients in the Dallas, GA area have heard about Invisalign, but aren’t sure if it’s an option for them. Patients are delighted to find out they can have the smile of their dreams without metal brackets and wires. Invisalign is a nearly invisible way to straighten teeth.

The Invisalign solution differs from traditional braces in several ways.

  1. The hardware – Instead of brackets, Invisalign uses a system of BPA-free plastic aligner trays. The trays are worn for about 22-23 hours each day and swapped out every two weeks.

  2. The cost – For some, the cost of Invisalign is roughly the same as traditional braces, however some patients find it less expensive because their treatment can be finished sooner.

  3. The time – Invisalign treatment can often be completed in about 18 months, whereas some traditional orthodontic treatment can take two to three years.

  4. The convenience – Traditional braces often come with a list of “off-limits” foods. Since the aligners are removable, patients are free to enjoy their favorite foods during treatment. Just be sure to thoroughly clean the teeth and the aligner trays before putting them back on.

  5. The comfort – The tightening of metal wires can be uncomfortable and the brackets can cause sores inside the mouth. The Invisalign trays are comfortable to wear and do not cause irritation inside the mouth.

While the convenience of removable trays is undeniable, we encourage patients to wear the trays as instructed to achieve optimal results.

When patients choose Invisalign, they are opting for a solution that is unmatched in ease and comfort. If you are in the Dallas, GA area, call Thirty Two Dental today to learn more.
