★ Invisalign Is Virtually Invisible
You may not feel comfortable walking about for years with metal attached to your teeth. That could be true if you are a working professional like the person described above, a teenager, or anyone interested in having a straight smile.
Braces have proven that they are an effective way to move teeth, but they come with some obvious drawbacks. One of the downsides is that there is no way to hide the brackets and wires attached to the front of your teeth.
Invisalign eliminates that problem by using aligners that are made of a transparent plastic. Since the aligners are custom-fitted for your teeth, they become practically invisible when they are placed over your teeth.
The aligners will blend in with your smile in a way that allows you to feel comfortable wearing them in social, personal, and professional situations.
Dr. Vakharia and Dr. Patel have used Invisalign to help several patients with issues such as crooked teeth, gaps between teeth, and overbites among other alignment problems.
We want you to feel good about your smile without feeling uncomfortable about your orthodontic treatment.

★ Invisalign Is Comfortable
Anyone who has worn braces can tell you how uncomfortable they can be. It hurts when the brackets and wires are first placed on your teeth, and it hurts each time they are adjusted.
That’s just how braces work.
With Invisalign, you will feel some gentle pressure each time to change aligners, but it’s not much compared to the pains that come with wearing braces.
We have noted in previous posts how important patient comfort is to us. It’s why we offer sedation dentistry and why we use tools like the Waterlase that allow us to perform pain-free dental procedures at Parkway Dental.
Invisalign is another way we do this. Invisalign is a long-term treatment, but one of its benefits is that it is a much less painful way to straighten our patients’ teeth.
You will still need to visit us from time to time so we can monitor your progress and answer your questions along the way. However, you won’t have to worry about the painful tightening of your braces.
You also won’t have to worry about your brackets scratching the soft tissues of your mouth or a wire breaking and potentially poking into your cheeks, gums, or lips. Each aligner is made of a smooth piece of plastic, so there aren’t any edges or metal pieces to worry about.
If you have questions about Invisalign, feel free to call our dentist office in Snellville or to contact us online.
★ Invisalign Is Convenient
When we were looking for an orthodontic treatment that could help our patients, we were well aware of the issues that come with wearing braces. Many patients have to give up eating foods they love during their treatment. Plus, wearing braces often means learning some tedious techniques for cleaning between teeth, brackets, and wires.
Those inconveniences vanish with Invisalign.
When it’s time to eat, you can simply remove the aligners. That means you can keep eating all your favorite foods.
With it’s time to brush and floss, you can remove the aligners again. That way all you have to do is brush and floss like you do today.
