Hi-Tech: Invisalign

 

Atlanta Invisalign

Many patients would like to find a solution to crooked, uneven teeth. Cosmetic dentistry now offers innovative, discreet treatment options for those with uneven, poorly spaced, overlapping and crooked teeth. One popular solution is Invisalign, a clear alternative to braces that many patients have used to improve their smile.

The Invisalign System
Invisalign is an alternative to metal braces that uses clear, comfortable aligners to gradually move your teeth into position. The aligners are custom molded to fit the teeth and are replaced throughout treatment to accommodate your ever changing positioning needs.

Invisalign has become hugely popular because it is discreet and also easy to use. The aligners are clear and fit the teeth snugly. They can be taken out during eating, brushing and sports. The clear aligners also eliminate the need for metal braces, with wires and bands that often irritate the tounge, gums, and cheeks.

Invisalign treatment success rests on the patient. The classic metal braces are always doing their job; they are constantly pulling the teeth into their new position. Since Invisalign is removable, patients must learn to take it out only when necessary and remember to put it back in as soon as possible to allow it to go back to work. Those who forget or leave the aligners out for long periods will be disappointed with the results.

Invisalign Treatment Time
Your Invisalign treatment time can be as short as 6 months and usually reaches completion in under 12 months. This treatment time is influenced by the degree of straightening required and the amount of time each day that the patient wears the aligner. Treatment time will increase if the aligner is not worn as required.

We will help you understand how to properly use your aligners. It is important that you floss and brush your teeth for at least two minutes, three times a day throughout your treatment. We are here to help you keep your teeth healthy and strong so your smile looks its best once the treatment is finished.

For Best Results
Take great care of your teeth! Look at teeth whitening and dental contouring as the final steps in your complete smile makeover. Wear your retainer every night to keep your teeth properly aligned in the correct position. Then floss, brush and visit your dentist regularly to preserve your new and improved smile for years to come!
