Many teenagers and adults who need orthodontic treatment to fix common bite and alignment issues are often reluctant to get braces for a number of reasons, from social and professional concerns, to practical issues like dietary restrictions and adjustments. Invisalign clear aligner trays offer a discreet and effective alternative to braces. The dentists at 1st Choice Dental offer a range of general and cosmetic dentistry services in Woodstock and Kennesaw, GA.
Invisalign in Woodstock and Kennesaw, GA
In addition to the fact that they are inconspicuous and virtually undetectable when you smile, Invisalign offers a number of additional benefits for your oral health and quality of life.
How Invisalign Works
The Invisalign system consists of a series of custom designed, disposable aligner trays that gradually shift your teeth into alignment. The trays are worn for approximately two weeks, and can be removed for up to two hours every day which allows you to maintain a normal oral hygiene routine and eat without restrictions. In some cases, the duration of the treatment period may be shorter with Invisalign than with braces, depending on your specific alignment needs.
What Dental Issues Can Invisalign Correct?
Some of the bite and alignment issues that can be corrected with Invisalign include:
- Open bite
- Gaps and spacing
In addition to the cosmetic problems caused by common bite problems, they can also put you at greater risk for oral health problems like tooth decay and gum disease. Crowded or overlapping teeth can make it difficult to brush properly and lead to plaque and tartar buildup. Invisalign offers the best of both worlds by addressing your orthodontic needs without sacrificing your smile in the process with metallic braces.
