Patients enjoy having options. When it comes to brightening the smile, they can choose from teeth whitening or porcelain veneers. Tooth loss treatments range from dental bridges to dental implants. When it comes to having their teeth straightened, they have more options than just traditional metal braces. Thanks to advances in orthodontics, patients may find their ideal alternative to traditional orthodontics is Invisalign. This system involves a series of clear aligners that are worn in numbered order. Patients change the trays every two weeks as their teeth gently move into proper position. Treatment includes visits to the dentist about every six weeks to check progress. At 32 Dental in the Marietta, GA area, we provide Invisalign to teenagers and adults. We are happy to explain why patients prefer Invisalign to traditional metal braces.
Metal braces and brackets can irritate the cheeks and gums. Invisalign aligners are made of a smooth plastic material. This typically makes the treatment more comfortable than traditional metal braces.
Invisalign provides the freedom to remove the trays when patients want as long as they are worn at least 20-22 hours per day. They can remove the trays to eat the foods they love, and brush and floss as they normally would. Patients enjoy the convenience that Invisalign can provide.
Patients can enjoy metal-free smiles. When they wear the aligners, it is unlikely anyone will notice them. They can remove the aligners for special events such as weddings or reunions so nobody knows they sought orthodontic treatment. While traditional metal braces and clear aligners can deliver beautiful smiles, patients can look forward to smiling confidently throughout Invisalign treatment.
With so many benefits of Invisalign treatment, many patients have a desire to explore this innovative orthodontic solution. During a consultation, the dentist can examine the health of the mouth, teeth, and gums. Impressions of the mouth are made to ensure precisely fitting aligner trays and x-rays of the soft tissues and jawbone are taken. Technicians at an Invisalign laboratory will customize the trays to meet your needs. To schedule a consultation appointment, call 770-423-1132 today.
