Many adults are looking for a way to get the straight smile they desire. No matter if you had braces as a teenager or are a first time orthodontic patient, we offer several options for adults needing teeth alignment. At Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry, we offer several orthodontic options for adults to get the beautiful smile they deserve, including metal and ceramic braces and the invisible, Invisalign orthodontics.
For adults looking for an orthodontic solution for misaligned teeth, Invisalign clear aligners are an alternative to traditional braces. Unlike traditional braces that are noticeable when attached to the outside of your teeth, Invisalign orthodontics are made of clear plastic trays that are almost invisible. If you want to finally have a straight, beautiful smile without the more obvious use of traditional braces, Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry offers Invisalign orthodontics as another option for you.
Invisible/Clear Orthodontics for Adults
While some orthodontic conditions may require metal or wire braces to straighten teeth, many misaligned teeth issues can be effectively corrected with clear aligners. Invisalign does a great job straightening teeth that are vertically misaligned, either higher or lower than other teeth in the mouth. Our specialty orthodontist Dr. Patel will examine your teeth and jaw to determine whether Invisalign orthodontics are an option to get you the straight, healthy smile you desire.
Invisalign is made of clear, removable aligners that gently align teeth into place. The clear custom-made aligners are replaced every two weeks to continue shifting the teeth into a straight, beautiful smile. The total length of the treatment depends on the severity of the misaligned teeth, with some patients only needing to wear the aligners for a few months, where others may need over a year of orthodontic treatment. The benefit is that while the teeth are being aligned, you can still have a great, white smile without the obvious tell-tale signs of metal or wires.
If you have been considering orthodontic treatment to improve your smile, contact us today to schedule an appointment with our experienced orthodontist Dr. Patel that offers Invisalign as an alternative to traditional braces. You can get the lovely smile you have always wanted without anyone noticing that you are wearing the clear Invisalign aligners.
