The Advantage Of Clear Aligners [BLOG]

The top-notch team here at our Snellville, GA dental office works hard to be able to consistently provide a wide array of services to patients of all ages and backgrounds. We offer everything from smile makeovers to restorative dentistry to TMJ solutions, oral surgery, and even a clear aligners program called Invisalign. Today we’re going to tell you more about Invisalign, our increasingly popular orthodontic treatment, but don’t hesitate to call [phone] when you are finished reading to request a consultation appointment around any issue you seem to be facing at the moment.

Invisalign Works Great For Many Patients

To be honest honest, we need anyone readers with crooked, crowded or gapped teeth to understand that when it comes to fixing the most complex types of orthodontic problems, Invisalign is not always the best option. That said, most of the folks we have seen here have been able to benefit from an Invisalign treatment. The nice thing is that Invisalign offers a number of advantages over traditional metal braces.

The clear, unique-fitting plastic aligners fit snugly over your teeth and are almost impossible for onlookers to notice. There’s no mouthful of metal to worry about. You can smile and laugh with confidence. There won’t be any annoying questions, comments, or nicknames to deal with.

What’s more, the smooth plastic won’t cut or irritate your tongue, lips, and the insides of your cheeks the way that the metal brackets and wires of traditional metal braces can. The progression from one aligner in your customized series to the next produces at most a sense of gently pressure. That’s a big difference from the pain that can occur when the wires of braces are tightened. 

But wait, it gets better. The Invisalign program only requires that you wear your aligners for about 22 hours each day, removing them to brush and floss just like you always do. You can also eat the foods you love while maintaining a healthy mouth. While you will need to see your dentist every so often, but treatment with Invisalign is usually much shorter than with braces. Most of our cases are wrapped up in about 12 months, so you’ll need far fewer appointments along the way.

Orthodontic situations are always different, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. As such, there’s no way to say for sure whether an Invisalign clear aligners treatment is your best bet without a thorough examination by one of our dentists. As we already pointed out, Invisalign is great for solving mild orthodontic issues, but it is not recommended for treating larger bite problems.

If you do turn out to be a good candidate, we promise to make it easy for you to get the job done at our dentist’s office in Snellville, GA. All you have to do for now is contact Parkway Dental of Snellville, GA today at 770-676-1122 or fill out our online form to schedule your easy consultation appointment.
