What's your best orthodontic choice? It may be Invisalign clear aligners. Helping older teens and adults achieve healthy straight smiles for more than 20 years, these clear, thin, discreet appliances fit snugly over the top and bottom teeth. They treat a wide variety of orthodontic issues. Could Invisalign from 1st Choice Dental Care in Kennesaw & Woodstock, GA work for you?
Smooth and invisible
Unlike metal or ceramic braces, Invisalign clear aligners are customized from biocompatible acrylic. They don't abrade oral tissues, impose complex oral hygiene routines or limit what you can eat. Fully removable for meals, brushing, and flossing and special occasions, Invisalign invisible braces move teeth into attractive and healthy positions in an average of one year. That's half the time conventional braces take.
What Invisalign helps
The list is long. While conventional orthodontics must address very complex problems, Invisalign straightens many mild to moderate problems. Appropriate for older teens and adults, the aligners come in pairs--18 to 30 in all. The patient changes them every 2 weeks or so according to the individualized treatment plan devised by your dentist at 1st Choice Dental Care.
Specifically, Invisalign aligners treat:
- Open bite
- Tooth rotation
- Tooth tipping
Your consultation and treatment in Kennesaw, Woodstock, and Marietta
Your dentist performs a complete oral exam, digital X-rays, and a special three-dimensional scan. Then, the dentist sends instructions to the Invisalign lab where a highly trained technician carefully crafts the aligner pairs. As you proceed through your plan, you'll visit 1st Choice Dental Care every four to six weeks for a progress check, and you'll receive your next pairs of aligners.
As you live with your Invisalign appliances, you'll see your teeth move into proper position. You'll find the aligners easy to maintain. Just wear them 20 to 22 hours daily as instructed and rinse with warm water to clean. If you're a teen, your aligners may have compliance indicators to keep treatment on track and space maintainers in case you're still waiting for molars or other teeth to erupt.
