How Invisalign Can Protect Your Gum Health Milton, GA

There are many orthodontic treatments available today. Beyond traditional brackets and bands, patients may now opt for a unique aligner therapy system such as Invisalign. The aligners look and feel much like a custom tray for teeth whitening. Besides their obvious advantage of a clear, discreet design, Invisalign also provides benefits towards your oral health – especially, your gum health.

Custom Fit for Better Comfort

Meticulous measurements are taken of your mouth before beginning your Invisalign treatment. This information is used to fabricate smooth aligners that fit over every crevice and groove of your unique smile. This means the aligners will stay in place and not come down too far over the gum line. In turn, patients rarely suffer from irritations or sores on their gums, lips or cheeks.

Easier to Clean Teeth & Gums

If you have overlapping or crowded teeth, you may already suffer from swollen or infected gums. The Invisalign process itself will straighten your teeth and provide a better environment for proper cleaning.  However, there’s another exclusive perk that Invisalign offers during your actual treatment.

The Invisalign aligners are removable for eating, brushing and flossing. You won’t have to navigate through wires and brackets to clean your teeth and you won’t have to constantly battle sugars and food debris that get stuck on your orthodontic appliances. A cleaner mouth dramatically reduces your risk for gum disease.

Invisalign is a highly preferred orthodontic treatment option, as it requires very little sacrifice on behalf of the patient to attain a straighter, more beautiful smile. Unfortunately, metal braces are not only difficult to wear, but they often leave teens and adults with unsightly stains and gingivitis to deal with when the braces come off. With Invisalign, you can undergo an effective orthodontic treatment while protecting your periodontal health at the same time.

Remember your gum health is closely associated with your overall health. Gum disease that goes untreated can lead to inflammation elsewhere in the body. Heart attacks, stroke and premature babies have been linked to advanced, untreated gum disease.

Our Patients Reviews

I was skeptical about going back into braces. Since this was my second round, I wanted something fast and affordable. I met with Dr. Patel and he was fantastic! He gave me different options, he was very detailed and he answered all my questions.

Dr. Patel is a gem of a person. My daughter is getting braces dine and dr. and staff make sure my daughter is comfortable with the treatment. Dr. Patel explains entire process patiently and gives time to answer any question we may have. Our experience is great and I strongly refer Dr. Patel for yours or your kid's orthodontics needs...

Highly recommend Milton Dental Specialists!! They were so sweet to my daughter and took extra time and effort to make her enjoy her experience and be comfortable! As a parent this is much appreciated! My daughter left smiling and excited to have her teeth cleaned. Thank you Dr. Chong and Renal!

An inviting waiting room with the front desk staff greeting me with a smile. Staff was very educated answering as many questions as possible since it was my first consultation for orthodontic help. Dr. Patel was VERY personable giving me all of the options for a plan of action the crowding of my teeth, and gave me all the information (time length, issues to be concerned with, financial differences) to help me choose the best plan for me. His details helped me to feel very comfortable with having to get braces as a female post 25+ years. I definitely recommend him as an orthodontist in the Milton/ North Atlanta area if you are looking for one. Best thing is that the first consultation was absolutely free!

Jagdeep S.

Very happy with Milton Dental Specialists. Having a dentist and orthodontist in one location makes dental exams easy while wearing braces. They have great hours and are very accommodating for kids in school who don’t want to miss school for orthodontic or dental work. Very happy with both the dentist and orthodontist.
