Everyone wants a beautiful smile they’re proud to share in personal and professional situations, and alignment is one of the many things that impacts the appearance of your smile. Unfortunately, getting a properly aligned smile used to mean spending months or even years with a mouth full of metal, which does not improve confidence for patients when sharing their smiles. At Seek & Smile, we have a better option – Invisalign clear braces. Our Conyers cosmetic dentist and dental team use this clear alignment tray orthodontic system to correct the position and spacing of your smile, and all you’ll ever see throughout treatment is a beautiful smile. If you’re ready to learn more, call to schedule an Invisalign consultation with our team. We’ll evaluate your smile and help you find the best treatment option to give you a smile you’re proud to share.
Traditional braces use wires to place pressure on brackets affixed to the fronts of teeth, shifting them into alignment over the course of several months. Invisalign achieves the same results using a series of clear aligners. Each set of alignment trays represents the smile one step closer to the desired end result. You’ll wear the aligners for about two weeks. Then, exchange them for the next set in the series. You need to visit our office every six to eight weeks for dental exams to ensure your smile is shifting according to plan. In most cases, your treatment is complete in twelve months.
Any patient who wants to straighten their teeth without the hassles of traditional bracket and wire braces may want to consider Invisalign, but some of the best candidates for this treatment include:
No matter what type of orthodontic treatment you receive, you’ll still need to wear a retainer. These oral appliances hold the teeth in their new positions as the soft tissue and supportive alveolar bone bond with the tooth roots to keep the teeth in their corrected alignment. Luckily, we are usually able to use clear retainers that look just like your Invisalign tray.
The cost of Invisalign is based on the number of alignment trays you need, so it varies dramatically based on individual patients’ needs. In most cases, your Invisalign treatment will not cost much more than traditional orthodontic alignment, and luckily, dental insurance now offers coverage for treatment using clear aligners. We will walk you through the cost of every step of your treatment and help you to budget for out of pocket expenses.
There are numerous benefits to orthodontic treatment with Invisalign compared with other options, including:
