Invisible braces offer the same advantages as traditional ones but without their typical drawbacks. One of the most significant drawbacks of traditional braces was their tendency to stand out whenever you spoke, smiled, or ate your food. Having to endure a mouth full of metal brackets was hardly an appealing choice.
The good news is, Smiles 2 You Dental Center offers Invisalign® invisible braces for our adolescent, teenage, and adult patients. Consult our certified dentist near you for guidance and evaluation.
Firstly, invisible braces are not as clearly noticeable as metal ones. They work on correcting your teeth in a discreet but effective manner. Also, you can easily remove them during meals, or during sport (to make way for mouthguards) and re-insert them afterward. There are no metal brackets or wires that could irritate your gums or teeth, and therefore, you don’t have to fear emergency visits for broken wires.
Contact our trusted dentist in Tucker, GA for invisible braces near you.
Once our dentist takes 3D impressions of your teeth, we will create a customized plan of treatment. All the teeth are not straightened out at once. The invisible aligners work on a couple of teeth at a time.
The dentist will use the 3D images to map out different stages of tooth positioning. Invisalign® treatments generally take between 8 to 12 months or more depending on the teeth alignment. We also offer invisible braces for adults – teeth alignment for adults normally takes more time compared to children.
Our dentist strongly recommends keeping your aligners on for at least 22 hours out of 24 for the best results.
Patients will get a new set of aligners every two weeks. This way, they will be able to see their smile becoming more beautiful and teeth becoming more evenly positioned in the arch. Invisible braces allow the orthodontist to control the force on each tooth, and they gradually adjust a few teeth at a time.
