Straightening crooked or misaligned teeth not only improves the appearance of your smile. 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 to straighten your smile without braces. Our team at Pure Smiles Dentistry is happy to offer Invisalign for 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.
We can carefully monitor progress to ensure that you get the most from your Invisalign aligners. Patients will need to attend at least two appointments at our Marietta office. If you have any questions about the process after your initial consultation, the team at Pure Smiles Dentistry is always available to provide advice and guidance.
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 patients to eat whatever foods they prefer. Invisalign should be worn at least twenty-two hours a day to be effective, but it can be taken out for eating and to perform your daily oral care.
We understand the challenges that teens face at school and in social situations. Invisalign Teen can provide a more comfortable teeth straightening experience, without the usual connotations associated with metal braces. In fact, many teens find that they are proud to show off their Invisalign aligners to friends and peers. As a treatment option, Invisalign can help your teen get through the teeth straightening process with confidence.
Smile Consultation in Marietta
If you are interested in Invisalign aligners for yourself or a teen, you likely have a lot of questions about suitability and the process. Pure Smiles Dentistry can provide a full smile consultation to determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign at our Marietta office. There are several potential factors that may impact patient suitability. Our professional dental team will carry out a comprehensive exam and discuss if Invisalign is right for you.
Dental bridges and other restorations may create resistance that prevents teeth from straightening. However, there is no one-size-fits-all answer as to whether or not these factors will rule out Invisalign aligners as a treatment option.
