Everything our Marietta neighbors need to know about Invisalign vs. braces

Your smile is your greatest asset and is the first thing people notice when they see you. Is yours as straight as it could be? Maybe your bite is a little bit off, maybe the gap that you used to find endearing now makes you self-conscious, maybe you tried traditional braces but your teeth shifted after they were removed.

Whatever the reason for wanting to straighten your teeth, Dr. Lan Vo and Dr. Sean Breckley of 32 Dental Practice want you to know that the benefits of straighter teeth aren’t simply cosmetic. Straighter teeth also mean a healthier mouth, easier cleaning, and better overall health. The even better news is that now you don’t have to endure metal brackets, sharp wires, and rubber bands to get the smile you’ve always wanted.

The 32 Dental Practice now offers Invisalign, which is barely noticed by others. While the most obvious benefit of Invisalign braces is they are practically invisible, there are a number of other advantages. Metal braces can be rough and sharp against the inside of a patient’s mouth, but Invisalign aligners are smooth with no sharp edges that can scratch or cut.

Invisalign uses comfortable plastic trays that shift the patients’ teeth in small increments. Patients should wear the aligners approximately 22 hours a day; however, the trays can be removed, making brushing and flossing the teeth and cleaning the aligners quick and easy. Patients can also eat what they want instead of having to avoid certain foods that can’t be eaten while wearing traditional orthodontics.

The convenience of Invisalign is also a great benefit. Instead of visiting the dentist or orthodontist every four to six weeks to have braces checked and tightened, patients simply change their trays every two weeks. These changes follow a treatment plan that is customized specifically for you by Drs. Lo and Breckley, giving you the best smile a patient could want.
