Are you hiding your smile because of misaligned teeth? Are you avoiding getting this fixed because of the hassle and discomfort of those dreaded braces you may have to wear? There is a way for you to achieve the perfect smile with metal-free, discreet, Invisalign trays.
Dr. Ronak Patel is a certified provider of Invisalign in Atlanta, GA, who can help you reach your goal of straight teeth in as little as six months! Invisalign is made with 3-D computer imaging technology, allowing your treatment to be accurately planned before even beginning your treatment. You can even see how straight your teeth will look when treatment is complete thanks to Invisalign’s state-of-the-art software program.
Benefits of Invisalign
- Invisalign aligners are made of smooth, flexible plastic to reduce the discomfort of traditional braces. This nearly eliminates discomfort by preventing mouth abrasions typically caused by metal brackets.
- The aligners are removable to allow eating, drinking, and flossing.
- Since there are no fixed metal brackets or wires, proper oral hygiene is much more efficient and effective – ultimately leading to much better results. This also means that less time needs to be spent at the doctor’s office for adjustments.
- Compared to traditional metal braces, treatment times are significantly shorter with Invisalign.
How Does Invisalign Work?
When you’re aligners arrive, you’ll b provided with the series in order. About every two weeks, you’ll switch with the next aligner in the series. You can remove your aligners to eat and drink as well as to brush and floss, but other than that, you’ll want to wear your aligners all the time. As you replace each tray with the next in the series, your teeth will move little by little until they reach the desired position Dr. Patel has prescribed.
You should plan to visit Dr. Patel every six weeks for about thirty minutes so he can ensure that your teeth are headed in the right direction.
What Happens Once I Finish All of My Aligners?
Once you finish your full course of aligners and your teeth are at the desired position, Dr. Patel will make you a retainer that will be worn overnight to ensure your teeth don’t relapse. It is very important that this retainer be worn. This is the only way to protect your investment.
In some cases, Dr. Patel may be able to install a permanent retainer (hidden out of sight, of course) so your teeth don’t get a chance to move. Please feel free to ask about this if you are interested.
It is also important for you to come in for your routine exam and cleanings so Dr. Patel can catch if your teeth start to shift again.
