When is Invisalign® better than traditional braces?

Invisalign® represents an entirely new approach to the age-old desire to correct misaligned teeth. The traditional route employs metal brackets cemented to your teeth and connected via wires which your orthodontist periodically tightens. The Invisalign system exerts mechanical force similarly to metal braces. Still, the method is through a series of clear aligner trays digitally planned so that each tray gently moves your teeth towards their new positions.

At Royal Lakes Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we begin by assessing your teeth to ensure clear aligners will work for your particular smile situation. Patients have numerous reasons to choose the Invisalign process over metal braces.

Critical Characteristics of Invisalign in Flowery Branch, GA

If you are a good candidate for Invisalign, the advantages are numerous. Here is a break-down:

  • Discrete appearance
  • Removeable aligners for eating, brushing, and flossing
  • Highly predictable
  • Comfortable aligners hold shape while not irritating soft tissues
  • Digital planning allows outcome visualization
  • Fewer visits to your orthodontist

Clear aligners like those provided by Invisalign are also constantly improving. For example, to help with more severe malocclusions, Invisalign now offers small tooth attachments to target the mechanical force and move teeth in more pronounced situations. In addition, for younger patients, new aligners come with wing-like projections to increase the correction of overbite and underbite conditions.
