Straightening crooked teeth used to mean a mouthful of unsightly metal brackets and wires. Today, there is a much easier, more discreet way to achieve a symmetrical smile⏤with Invisalign® clear aligners. Dr. Joseph D. Murray and Dr. William Alexander in Atlanta, GA, provide advanced orthodontic options, helping adults and teens realize the dream of a beautiful smile.
Invisalign can often correct cosmetic dental imperfections in a year or less. By wearing these clear aligners, you can achieve your desired results with an inconspicuous treatment process that is more comfortable and hygienic than traditional braces.
Invisalign treatment is accomplished with a series of clear plastic aligners, which are custom designed to fit snugly over your top and bottom teeth. You wear each aligner for a few weeks, then dispose of it and move on to the next. Each works consecutively according to plan, providing targeted, gentle force to bring your teeth into proper alignment.
Most patients with dental malocclusions are good candidates for Invisalign. Improvements in the process have resulted in excellent outcomes for even complex cases. Invisalign can correct most types of flaws and functional bite issues, including overcrowding, gaps, overbite or underbite, and rotated or angled teeth. Average treatment time with Invisalign is a year, and you may begin to notice improvements as early as the first month.
Most people will not notice your aligners, and if desired, you can remove them for a special occasion.
In rare cases, traditional braces can be a better choice, and Dr. Murray or Dr. Alexander will provide you with an honest assessment during a consultation in our office. Conversely, patients with minor cosmetic flaws may qualify for accelerated orthodontics using Invisalign Express. In this case, your treatment can be complete in as little as two to six months.
Benefits of Invisalign
Many adults and teens worry about their appearance with braces, but Invisalign eliminates this concern. Most people will not notice your aligners, and if desired, you can remove them for a special occasion. Other benefits of these clear braces include:
- Dietary Options: There is no need to restrict your diet to avoid damage or worry about food becoming lodged in your braces. With Invisalign, you remove your aligners when you eat or drink hot liquids.
- Hygiene: You can keep up your regular brushing and flossing routine and receive normal professional cleanings. Also, when misaligned teeth are straight, you will find it easier to maintain excellent hygiene and avoid decay.
- Comfort: Because there is no metal or wire present to irritate delicate tissue, Invisalign aligners are more comfortable to wear than braces.
