Straightening crooked or misaligned teeth not only improves the appearance of your smile, it can help make it easier to keep healthy. Orthodontics are used to straighten and align teeth, but metal braces can be uncomfortable, inconvenient and very noticeable. Invisalign clear aligners are an alternative to metal braces, helping straighten your smile without braces. Our team at Pure Smiles Dentistry is happy to offer Invisalign for our patients at our office in Marietta.
Invisalign has changed the way adults and teens can straighten their smiles. The clear BPA-free plastic aligners are customized to fit over your teeth and are barely visible. This gives you a discreet option compared to metal braces. Plus, the aligners are more comfortable than wearing brackets and wires. The aligners apply pressure to the teeth to shift them toward their preferred position. Every few weeks our dentist will prescribe the next set of aligners that will bring you closer to your final smile.
Teens can also enjoy the advantages of Invisalign for straightening their smile. Teenagers prefer a discreet option to get their teeth aligned. One of the many drawbacks of metal braces is that certain foods can damage the hardware. With Invisalign Teen and the adult version, the aligners can be removed for meals, allowing our patients to eat whatever foods they prefer. Invisalign should be worn at least twenty-two hours a day to be effective, but they can be taken out for eating and to perform your daily oral care.
At Pure Smiles Dentistry, we offer the latest technology to help improve the health of our patients’ smiles, including imaging that helps us utilize Invisalign aligners for our patients. If you or your teenager needs orthodontic treatment and you would prefer a discreet, comfortable alternative to metal braces, contact Pure Smiles Dentistry today and come talk to us about Invisalign.
