Patients in Marietta, GA ask, "Do we need to see orthodontists for Invisalign treatment?"

Traditional metal braces are no longer the only option for straightening teeth or improving the bite function. Invisalign is a series of clear aligners that gently move the teeth into proper position. At 32 Dental, we provide Invisalign and many other treatments to restore health, function, and beauty to smiles. Many patients in Marietta, GA, will ask, “Do we need to see orthodontists for Invisalign treatment?” We are proud to tell them that our dentists, Drs. Lan Vo and Sean Breckley, can provide this innovative treatment.

Comparing Invisalign to traditional metal braces

Invisalign can deliver comparable results to traditional orthodontics. However, there are several differences between the treatments. With Invisalign, there are no diet restrictions. Patients do not have to worry about food becoming trapped between the teeth and the wires. Invisalign can be a more comfortable treatment because it involves wearing smooth, professional grade plastic aligners. There are no wires or brackets that can cause gum and cheek irritation.

Restoring the smile with an innovative treatment

Invisalign can be used to treat mild to moderate tooth misalignment and malocclusion. In comparison to a treatment length of two to three years for traditional orthodontics, Invisalign treatment can last 12 to 18 months. Patients can remove the trays for brushing their teeth and flossing as well as special occasions such as weddings, work events, and reunions. However, it is important to wear the aligners 20-22 hours per day.

Exploring your candidacy for Invisalign

Do you want to know if Invisalign is right for you? If you do, we recommend scheduling a consultation with Dr. Vo or Breckley. The dentist will examine the health of your mouth, teeth, and gums. There may be impressions of your mouth made and x-rays taken. If you are a candidate for Invisalign, the dentist will tailor a treatment plan to meet your needs. The molds will be sent to a laboratory where your customized trays will be created. After treatment, you can embrace the smile you have always wanted.
