Malocclusion is defined as crooked teeth or a misaligned bite. If you have malocclusion, Dr. Steven Ricci may recommend Invisalign® in Johns Creek, Georgia, to help you reach a straight smile. Invisalign is a set of aligners that is designed specifically for your smile. They are worn over the teeth for 20 to 22 hours a day to gently straighten the smile. Every week or two, you will receive the next set of aligners to further your orthodontic treatment.

Straightening your teeth with Invisalign has many benefits, including:

The Cosmetic Alternative to Adult Braces
Invisalign uses nearly invisible plastic to straighten your teeth. Most people will not even realize that you are undergoing orthodontic treatment. Because of this, you can smile with pride!

Better Oral Health
Red, irritated gums can be the result of teeth that are too crowded or gapped. Unhealthy gums are a sign of gum disease. With straight teeth, the gums can fit more properly around the teeth.

Proper Oral Hygiene
Caring for your teeth is much easier with Invisalign than with braces, as Invisalign aligners are removable.

Keep Living Life
Do you play sports or a musical instrument? Traditional braces can hold you back from these activities, but you can perform at your best with Invisalign!
