Invisalign is an innovative teeth straightening system that provides cosmetic and functional benefits without unnecessary distractions. They consist of virtually invisible aligners that are customized to fit your natural teeth. Dr. Travis Paige of Buckhead Family Dentistry provides the benefits of Invisalign from his Atlanta office.
The popularity of Invisalign is attributed to their comfortable and transparent features, rendering them unnoticeable to others who see your smile. There are no metal bands or wires that irritate your teeth and gums. They eventually straighten your teeth over a series of months during the treatment.
An impression will be created from your teeth, which is evaluated by the computer system to create durable and accurate aligners. The aligners are replaced every two weeks, each successive one will exert gentle pressure on your teeth to move them to their correct positions.
The amount of aligners provided depends on your specific needs and condition. Generally, most patients receive 18-30 aligners before their teeth are completely re-aligned. Each new aligner is worn 24 hours a day and can be removed for teeth brushing and meals.
Invisalign provides visible results in a smaller amount of time than orthodontics because they are supported by advanced and precise tools. If you are looking to realign your smile, please call our office to schedule your appointment.
