Metal braces aren’t the only option for straightening your teeth anymore. In fact, to align your teeth, you don’t have to use metal at all! While traditional metal braces leave you with a mouth full of metal for several years, at Atlanta West Dentistry, we offer a more discreet option that can straighten your smile in just one year.
Dr. Cameron Watson is a preferred Invisalign provider and was even featured on NBC for her expertise in Invisalign. If you’re ready to straighten your smile, Atlanta West Dentistry is the place to go. In the meantime, learn more about Invisalign and why it just might be the right solution for you.
What Is Invisalign & How Does It Work?
Traditional braces use brackets and wires to gradually move your teeth into place. Sure, they’re effective, but they’re not exactly aesthetically pleasing. For people who want straighter teeth without “brace face,” Invisalign is a great option.
Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners that are custom-made to fit snugly over your teeth. During your treatment, you will use several aligners to gradually and gently move and straighten your teeth.
The aligners can be removed when you eat, brush, and floss, which is a major benefit for some patients who choose Invisalign over metal braces. We recommend you wear the aligners for at least 22 hours a day for optimal results, but our patients love the convenience of the removable aligners.
When you come to our office for a consultation, we can use the Invisalign Outcome Simulator to show you what your results can look like before we even start your treatment. When you know what you can expect, you can be even more excited about the process! We’re confident you’ll be amazed at the difference orthodontics can make for your smile.
Will Invisalign Work For Me?
Invisalign aligners work best for teens and adults. Typically, Invisalign works best for patients with mild or moderately crowded teeth or minor spacing problems. Invisalign may not work for patients with severe crowding or spacing or patients with severe crossbites, overbites, or underbites.
Invisalign is a great option for patients who don’t want to make it obvious they’re undergoing orthodontic treatment. Because Invisalign aligners are clear and discreet, no one will even know about your treatment unless you tell them!
The Benefits Of Straighter Teeth
A straight smile certainly looks great, but that’s not the only benefit of using orthodontics to straighten your teeth. Once you finish your orthodontic treatment, you may be surprised by how much of a self-esteem boost you experience.
If you’ve spent most of your life embarrassed by your crooked teeth, Invisalign can work wonders for your self-image. You will no longer have to worry about whether people are judging you because of the imperfections of your teeth. You don’t have to deal with concerns that people are viewing you negatively because of your crooked teeth or gaps in your smile. Instead, you will be able to show off a gorgeous smile with confidence.
An orthodontic treatment to straighten and correct your smile has several health benefits as well. When your teeth are no longer crowded together, they are much easier to clean and maintain. Brushing and flossing will become more effective, helping you prevent the buildup of plaque and potential tooth decay.
Straighter teeth also mean less stress on your gums and jaw, potentially preventing headaches and jaw pain.
