Invisalign clear aligners from Athens, GA dentist, Dr. Chandra Bennett, help older teens and adults achieve their best looking and healthiest smiles. Unlike traditional metal and ceramic braces, Invisalign appliances are practically invisible, easy to care for and correct smile alignment without the oral discomforts brackets and wires often cause. Could Invisalign straighten your smile?
What are Invisalign appliances?
Invisalign aligners in Athens are customized orthodontic appliances made from biocompatible, clear acrylic. They fit tightly over top and bottom teeth, exerting physical forces which gradually move crooked teeth into better positions. They come in pairs, numbering 18 to 30 in all, and must be worn 20 to 22 hours a day to complete the treatment plan correctly and on time.
Popular with older teens and adults because of their discreet appearance, the clear appliances treat a variety of mild to moderate orthodontic problems such as:
- Under bite
- Cross bite
- Open bite
- Tooth tipping
- Tooth rotation
- Tooth drifting after previous treatment with braces
While conventional braces are best for the most complex orthodontic cases, Invisalign has successfully treated literally millions of patients all over the world.
Why is Invisalign Popular?
A Harris poll initiated by Invisalign shows that almost 80 percent of adults who have straightened their teeth feel the smile makeover improved their personal lives, particularly in the area of self-confidence. Yet, most of the same people would have cringed at the idea of going to work or getting married with a mouthful of metal or ceramic braces.
So Invisalign in Athens provides a very attractive treatment alternative. The system straightens smiles in just nine to 18 months, or one year on average. Treatment with traditional braces takes two to two and a half years or more to complete, and patients enjoy easier oral hygiene routines and no restrictions on their dietary choices.
Additionally, patients are pleased that they can remove their aligners to eat, brush and floss. They can take them out for special occasions--weddings, job interviews and public presentations, as examples. Day-to-day maintenance of aligners is as easy as a gentle brush and rinse, and monthly progress checks at Bella Dentistry are simple and quick. In short, Invisalign does the job without interfering with a busy life.
