Invisalign in Alpharetta GA
If you’ve been bothered by crooked teeth and gaps in your smile but dread the thought of wearing traditional braces, you'll be happy to know that Alpharetta Creek Restorative Dentistry now offers a more attractive alternative to traditional wire and bracket braces. These treatment options are the key to a healthy smile.
Comfortable Invisalign clear aligners can help create a stunning smile, and most people around you won’t ever know you’re being treated. Who wouldn’t want to have their teeth straightened without the whole world knowing?
How Invisalign Works
Dr. Kai Liang creates your customized Invisalign aligners using state-of-the-art 3-D computer imaging. This allows us to identify the misalignment and develop a plan that predicts the way your teeth will move during treatment.
This information will be used to create your customized Invisalign aligners. The clear aligners are transparent plastic trays that fit comfortably over your teeth. You’ll change the aligners every two weeks so your teeth can be moved bit by bit based on our comprehensive treatment plan.
Though they cover your teeth completely, Invisalign clear aligners are barely noticeable. Another benefit to wearing Invisalign clear braces is that they’re completely removable. You don’t have to worry about food getting caught in wires and brackets – just remove the aligners before you eat! Since you can remove them, effective oral hygiene is also much easier than with traditional braces.
Dr. Kai will tell you everything you need to know about Invisalign treatment and make appointments to see you once every six weeks to check on your progress. Most Invisalign treatment takes approximately a year for adults, with treatment time for older teens being about the same as with traditional braces.
Straight Teeth for a Healthier Smile
Today we place a lot of emphasis on physical appearance. But the benefits of having a straight, healthy smile are not just aesthetic.
When teeth are not aligned properly, extra pressure is placed on the rest of the teeth. This can lead to other oral health problems like dental erosion, teeth grinding, and the potential for developing TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder). Crowded teeth also make it difficult to clean thoroughly around all surfaces, which can lead to decay and gum disease.
