Do you want straight teeth and a healthy smile but metal braces are out of the question? Invisalign clear aligners are the alternative to braces, offering a comfortable, discreet orthodontic treatment to straighten your smile. At Dental Care Center at Kennestone, we offer Invisalign orthodontics for our teen and adult patients who want to fix crooked or misaligned teeth for a healthy, beautiful smile.
Invisalign uses the same principles as braces to straighten teeth without the discomfort or awkwardness of wearing metal on your teeth. Invisalign are clear, plastic aligners that are customized to fit over your teeth. The aligners use gentle pressure to shift your teeth into place, just like braces. However, they will not poke or rub against your lips or gums like braces or need constant repairs. They are almost invisible to those around you, allowing you to keep your white smile. Adults love Invisalign for the discreet treatment – no embarrassment of wearing braces in your 20’s, 30’s or even 40’s.
Invisalign makes clear aligners for both adults and teens. Like adults, teens enjoy the discreet design of Invisalign Teen. Another benefit is that Invisalign aligners are removable. One of the many drawbacks of metal braces is that you must restrict the foods you eat to protect the braces. With Invisalign, teens can pop out their aligners when they want to eat sticky, chewy or crunchy foods. They can enjoy the foods they love, brush their teeth and pop their aligners back in their mouth. This also allows for better oral hygiene, since food can get stuck in the wires and brackets on braces.
Invisalign is available at Dental Care Center at Kennestone for our adult and teen patients needing orthodontic treatment. Contact our office today to schedule your orthodontic consultation to learn more about the benefits of Invisalign aligners.
