At Aesthetic & Implant Dentistry of Atlanta, we have the technology to straighten your teeth without metal braces. Invisalign® is the cosmetic alternative to metal brackets and colored bands. Invisalign® is a series of clear removable retainers that gradually reposition your teeth to a more ideal position. Your aligners will be so subtle that they’re almost invisible. In fact, many of our patients actually have to pop out their aligners to show friends how they’ve improved their smiles. Because it’s removable, Invisalign® doesn’t get in the way during sports, social events or enjoying the foods you love. Each aligner gently moves your crooked teeth into position over a series of 5-15 months
Advantages of the Invisalign® System
Traditional metal braces were used to correct all types of misalignments. Unfortunately, while straightening teeth, they also caused problems. The metal brackets and wires could be irritating to the cheeks and tongue. Tightening the wires was often painful, and ligatures or rubber bands used would often break and need replacing. Dietary changes were also necessary. Hard foods, sticky foods or anything that would interfere with the metal braces had to be eliminated until the braces were removed.
Invisalign® braces do not have these issues. In fact, there are many advantages to Invisalign® braces:
- Shorter length of treatment
- Fewer in-office appointments
- Clear, almost invisible retainers
- No harsh and abrasive brackets
- No dietary restrictions
- No change in your oral hygiene routine.
This method of straightening misaligned teeth is easy, low maintenance and discreet. Many older adults are choosing to straighten their teeth now that this nearly invisible method is available to them.
