Traditional metal braces may not be the best fit for every lifestyle, and Dr. Steven Ricci is happy to offer more discreet orthodontic treatments. In order to provide each of his patients with the oral care they need, our team works hard to offer a wide range of options for orthodontic treatment. One of our more discreet options is Invisalign® for those in Johns Creek, Georgia.
Learn About Invisalign® for Treatment
Invisalign® is a great choice for our patients who are searching for a more discreet orthodontic treatment option. Rather than using metal brackets and wires like traditional braces, the Invisalign® system uses a series of custom-made, computer-generated plastic aligners to straighten your smile. These comfortable and clear alternative aligners straighten teeth more predictably.
Each set of aligners is designed to make small changes to the alignment of the teeth. As you switch sets of aligners about every two weeks, your teeth will be gently guided to their proper positions. You will also visit our office on a regular basis during treatment to make certain that your smile is progressing as planned. You may be able to see your new, healthy smile in as few as six months.
Ricci Orthodontics is happy to provide numerous Invisalign® options and information regarding this clear form of treatment. We provide both adult Invisalign® along with teen Invisalign®. Our team can also explain the pros and cons of Invisalign® vs. braces. Do you still have questions? Consider the more common Invisalign® FAQs.
What Can this Orthodontic Option Treat?
In general, Invisalign® can help treat the same orthodontic issues that dental braces can treat. Our orthodontist may recommend Invisalign® to correct:
- Crowded teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Gapped and spaced teeth
- Certain problems with the bite, such as an overbite, open bite, underbite, or crossbite
During your initial visit, we will determine whether you are a good candidate for Invisalign®. This treatment is often a good choice for adult patients and others who are interested in a virtually invisible orthodontic treatment. In addition to being discreet, Invisalign® aligners are also very comfortable because they are custom made from smooth, thin plastic.
The aligners are removable as well, which allows you to easily remove them as needed in order to eat, brush, and floss. Being able to remove these lets you eat anything you want without worrying about sticky or hard foods. Eating these foods could damage the brackets and wires of traditional braces, but not with Invisalign®.
We welcome you to call or visit us today to learn more about Invisalign®. During a visit with your orthodontist, you can get recommendations for the best ways to straighten your teeth and if this alternative option will work for you.
