In the past, orthodontic care was not as effective or common as it is today. However, you may still second guess braces due to the obvious nature of their design. Having metal brackets and wires permanently attached to your teeth during treatment is a big commitment! Luckily, you can now straighten your smile discreetly with Invisalign. We offer Invisalign at our Kennesaw and Woodstock locations, so you'll be straightening without anyone noticing!
How does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment which uses aligner trays rather than metal wires and brackets. The trays, which the patient wears one after another until the end of their treatment series, are made of clear plastic, making them super-discreet and virtually invisible to others. The trays are all slightly different, placing pressure on the teeth at certain points and moving them slowly but steadily from their original positions to their new, straightened resting places. The trays may need some help pinpointing the areas on which the pressure is placed. In this case, tooth-colored bumps called attachments placed onto the teeth can help distribute the pressure placed on the teeth by the trays.
What does Invisalign treat?
Invisalign treats the standard orthodontic concerns, including:
- misaligned teeth
- uneven teeth
- overcrowded teeth
- under crowded teeth
- open bite
Invisalign Treatments at our Kennesaw & Woodstock Locations
Invisalign can help in many different situations and at various severities of orthodontic problems. However, dentists usually only recommend Invisalign for patients ages 12 and up as younger patients may have still-growing jaws which could compromise treatment. In some cases, a dentist may suggest orthodontic treatment for younger patients to guide their growing teeth and jaws, but this is not always the case.
