Many people hesitate to straighten their teeth because they do not want to deal with cumbersome brackets or braces. For these patients, Invisalign® performed by Dr. David Lofters of Smile Envy Dental Group could be the answer. Patients from Smyrna, Vinings, and the surrounding communities in Atlanta are welcome.
What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is a revolutionary way of straightening the teeth that completely eliminates the need for wires or metal brackets. This method uses a series of clear, custom-fit aligners that are placed over top of your existing teeth. You will receive a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks until your teeth have moved into their correct position.
Benefits of Invisalign®
The many benefits of Invisalign® include:
- Fewer dietary restrictions
- Being able to brush and floss as normal
- Providing inconspicuous treatment
- Being more comfortable to wear
- Eliminating the need for regular adjustments, as is the case with wires
How is Invisalign® Performed?
Invisalign® treatment is performed by simply placing your first set of custom aligners over top of your teeth, and then leaving them in place for at least 22 hours each day. You will advance to a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks. Dr. Lofters will check your teeth in his office once every six weeks to ensure you are progressing as scheduled. He may then make adjustments to your Invisalign® aligners or recommend that you wear them for shorter or longer periods of time.
Preparing for Invisalign®
Underlying dental concerns, such as cavities, must be addressed before you start wearing Invisalign®.
Recovery from Invisalign®
When your teeth have completely moved into their correct position, all you need to do is simply remove your clear aligner and discard it. No recovery period is needed whatsoever.
How much does Invisalign® Cost?
Invisalign® treatment is highly personalized, and will, therefore, vary with each patient. To make paying for treatment as affordable as possible, we offer several payment options, including cash, personal check, major credit card and CareCredit® financing.
Is Invisalign® Right for Me?
If you would like to straighten your teeth without being bothered by pesky wires that might interfere with your daily activities, Invisalign® could be a perfect choice.
