Achieving your best smile may be easier and more comfortable than you think. With Invisalign clear aligners, you can correct many common alignment issues to have a beautiful, straight smile without the need for metal braces. If you have been wanting to fix gaps or crooked teeth that are detracting from the appearance of your smile, our experienced team at Pure Dental Health has many solutions, including the popular Invisalign aligners. We are conveniently located in Buckhead and serve Roswell and many of the surrounding communities.
How does Invisalign differ from braces?
Invisalign has changed the path to a straight smile. In the past, metal brackets, wires and bands were the only option to fix common alignment issues. However, Invisalign makes the process simple and easy, without the hassle of braces. No constant adjustments or restrictions on the foods you can eat. No ugly metal flashing every time you talk or smile. Just clear, BPA-free plastic aligners discretely shifting your teeth into place in as little as one year.
How does the Invisalign system work?
The clear aligners that are used in the Invisalign system are specifically created to transform each individual’s smile. They fit comfortably over your teeth and apply a gentle force that begins shifting your teeth into the correct position. Every two weeks you receive a new set of aligners that bring you one step closer to your perfect smile. There are no painful wires or tightening appointments. You will quickly adjust to wearing your aligners and most people will never even notice that you have them on. The aligners are removable, so you can still eat crunchy fruits and vegetables, sticky foods and other items restricted when you wear braces. Just pop out your aligners before you eat, brush your teeth and then put them back in again.
Will Invisalign work for you?
Although Invisalign does correct cosmetic issues with teeth, this treatment can be used for more serious malocclusions as well. Most dental issues that would be treated with metal braces can also be treated with Invisalign. Protruding teeth, gaps and overlapped, crowded teeth are common problems that people want fixed to improve the look of their smile. But bite alignment is also an issue that Invisalign can correct, including overbite, underbite, crossbite and open bite.
Are there health concerns with crooked teeth?
Crooked teeth and poor bite alignment are more than cosmetic issues. They can affect your oral and overall health. Teeth that are out of alignment can be difficult to keep clean, with areas that are hard to brush or floss. Plaque and tartar buildup can lead to decay and gum disease, with serious and expensive consequences. Invisalign can help correct these issues, protecting your health while giving you a smile that you will love.
Are you a good candidate for Invisalign?
Most adults with alignment issues in their teeth or bite are good candidates for Invisalign. At Pure Dental Health, Dr. Scott can examine your teeth and make recommendations to improve the look and health of your smile. If Invisalign is the right option for you, our team will begin getting the impressions and x-rays needed to create your aligners and treatment plan. You will learn how to care for your aligners and what to expect during the treatment process. Expect to wear your aligners 20-22 hours a day for close to a year for most adults.
