Searching for a dentist who provides Invisalign? Millions of patients around the world have gotten beautiful results by straightening their teeth with the famous clear aligners.
Invisalign, however, is not the only type of invisible braces out there; it just happens to be the most well-known.
Dr. Marion is a cosmetic dentist who provides an alternative orthodontic solution using an independent lab and product: Clear Image Aligners by Specialty Appliances, an orthodontic lab located right here in Cumming, GA.
How Invisalign Works
Invisalign popularized the system of using clear braces, or aligners, to progressively straighten teeth. Patients visit a participating dentist who evaluates their occlusion and coordinates a diagnostic plan with the company. The barely visible plastic trays put gentle and steady pressure on the teeth at specific points to encourage them to move into optimum positions. After the teeth shift, they need a few days to rebuild bone around the new positions and then it’s time for the next set of trays which will move the teeth even more.
Most patients wear their aligner set for a couple of weeks before they’re ready to move onto the next set of trays. Treatment is usually done within a year, provided the patients wear the trays as directed.
Invisalign can correct a variety of mild to moderate orthodontic problems such as:
- Tooth crowding
- Rotated teeth
- Open bite
Invisible braces, however, aren’t right for everyone. Unlike wire-and-bracket braces, they require patient compliance. There are also some situations where there are rotated teeth or incompletely erupted teeth where they might not work. If you’re wondering whether or not you are a candidate, a quick complimentary consultation can give Dr. Marion the opportunity to tell you.
A Better Alternative to Invisalign?
Dr. Marion uses an alternative orthodontic product and laboratory for a couple of reasons:
- Lower fees
- More one-on-one attention
It can be easy to feel overlooked and lost in the system when you rely on a massive company to straighten your teeth. Dr. Marion’s preferred clear aligner system can deliver similar results at a lower cost to you and with more professional insights applied to your individual treatment.
Having straight teeth is about more than just looks. Poor tooth alignment can increase your risk of decay, periodontitis, gum recession, and even TMJ problems. Invisible braces can be just what you need to give you an attractive, healthy smile.
