How Can Invisalign Braces Help You Get Perfect Teeth?

Invisalign In Marietta

Do you have crooked teeth? Do you want a straight smile but don’t want the bulky metal braces? Well, you’re in luck! With Invisalign, you can straighten your teeth discreetly and effectively. It can fix a variety of dental issues and provide a straight smile.

What Exactly Are Invisalign Braces?

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that straightens teeth with a series of custom-made aligners that cover your teeth and apply pressure to move them into the proper position over time. One of the main reasons for its popularity is the invisibility feature. However, make sure you get a platinum Invisalign provider who has enough practice to ensure you will have a good experience with the treatment.

To get your Invisalign treatment, the dentist will first examine your teeth, along with x-rays, to determine the root cause and the severity of your orthodontic issue. Once it’s decided you are a perfect candidate for Invisalign, the dentist will go ahead and create a 3-D model of your teeth and establish a personalized treatment plan for you. This will determine the duration of your Invisalign treatment, and you will get your customized aligners crafted. You will receive new aligners every two weeks, which will have subtle changes and will progressively move your teeth into the desired position.

How Can Invisalign Help You Get Perfect Teeth?

Invisalign is a great way to treat your orthodontic issues. However, Invisalign may not be the best option for everyone, therefore, it is best to consult a dentist who will examine your teeth and determine if Invisalign is right for you. Usually, Invisalign can fix the following issues.

  • Crooked Teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Gapped teeth
  • Open Bite
  • Crowded Teeth

You will achieve straighter teeth anywhere from 6 months to 2 years. You need to wear your clear trays for 22 hours every day and remove them while brushing, eating, or drinking. After your Invisalign treatment, the dentist may recommend a retainer to ensure your teeth stay in their new contract alignment and don’t revert back.

What Are The Benefits Of Using Invisalign Over Metal Braces?

  • No Food Restrictions

With traditional metal braces, you are restricted to certain foods. This can make the process more exhausting. You will have to avoid sticky, chewy, hard foods like caramel, popcorn, corn on the cob, almonds, apples, carrots, etc. These foods can cause your braces to break and hinder your progress.

However, with Invisalign, you can eat whatever you like without the risk of damaging your appliances, as you will have to remove your aligners before you eat and drink. You won’t have to worry about food getting stuck on your braces and risking your oral health.

  • Aesthetically Pleasing

When one thinks of braces, the first picture that comes to mind is the brackets, wires, and bands. However, with Invisalign, you will receive custom-made trays that are undetectable and can straighten your smile effectively. So now you can straighten your smile without anyone knowing about it.

  • Oral Hygiene Is Easier

Many patients with traditional metal braces find it very difficult to clean their braces. You will require special tools and brushes to remove food stuck in your braces and ensure there’s no plaque build-up. Failing to do so can cause your teeth to stain or put you at a higher risk for tooth decay, gingivitis, or cause gum disease.

However, with Invisalign, you can maintain your oral routine just like you normally would by removing your plastic aligners. You should also clean your aligners with a cleaning solution, and use a soft-bristled toothbrush.

  • No Orthodontic Emergencies

One of the major inconveniences of traditional braces is the inevitable orthodontic emergency. You will have to suffer from broken or poking wires, loose brackets or bands, etc. This can prolong your treatment. However, Invisalign aligners are strong and durable, and you don’t have to worry about breaking them or visiting the office.

  • Comfortable

Braces are usually a great and effective way to straighten your teeth; however, they may not be the most convenient. With Invisalign, you will feel some discomfort at the beginning; however, gradually, you will not even know you are wearing your clear aligners. No wires are poking your soft tissues, or no painful tightening every few weeks.

  • Removable 

Braces aren’t removable, once placed they will be removed by the dentist at the end of your orthodontic treatment. With Invisalign, you can remove your aligners while eating, drinking, or brushing. This makes the process a lot smoother. So you can remove them whenever you have a big meeting or an interview and be confident throughout. However, make sure you wear your aligners for at least 22 hours every day for your treatment to be effective.

Dr. Gilreath is incredible with my kids. They love going to the dentist now! And this busy mom loves the warm neck wraps, the soft music and enjoying a latte while I relax!

Kenneth H.

Was lucky enough to find these guys when I got insurance that my old dentist did not take. Very professional and friendly staff! Office has the latest greatest technology as well. If you're looking for a new dentist, search no further!

Susie L.

Very personable and friendly, they took the time to go over my complex dental history and did not pressure me into anything. They gave their recommendations and priced out any options I had. Great group!

Camille Y.

Dr. Gilreath and his staff are top notch. I received the best cleaning I've ever had while watching my favorite show. The Doctor and his staff were all very polite, friendly, and courteous. They explained everything to me clearly and presented me with options in a gentle way that didn't make me feel pressured at all. It's obvious they really care about the wellbeing of their patients. The facility and equipment is really nice as well. I will definitely be back!

Juan R.

Always willing to work around my kids and my schedules. Today I had a long appointment. They started on time and always made sure I was comfortable and that the pain was managed so the procedure could’ve been completed without issues. Very courteous and professional staff.

Lucia B.

Awesome dental practice! The staff is friendly and efficient. Dr. Gilreath is thorough and versed in the latest technology and procedures. I love that he can make crowns in the office while you wait (so no walking around with a temporary crown for days or weeks). I would strongly recommend this dental practice!

Matthew W.

I've been going here for about a little over a year now. I've had a few cleanings, a filling, and started Invisiline so far. Hands down, the best run dental office I've ever been to. In the past at other dental offices I often had to wait 30 or more minutes beyond my appointment time before being seen. At Dr. Gilreath's office I've been seen on time every time. They seem to have systems in place to make every part of your visit run smoothly. From how they took x-rays, to billing and appointments, to the work done by the hygienist/dentist, everything seems to run like a well oiled machine. On top of that all the staff are all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The office space itself is also quite nice. Very clean, well maintained, and seems very "up to date" with their equipment. If you're looking for a dentist and are anywhere in the northwest metro area I would highly recommend Dr. Gilreath.

Jhion R.

The staff is always so courteous and personable. They make us feel like family every time we have an appointment. Service is excellent, too. My wife recently went for a cleaning and Dr. Gilreath noticed a chip in one of her fillings. He knew we recently had another baby and that her time was very limited so he went ahead and did the filling right then and there, an extra thirty minutes tops. Dr. Gilreath is always looking at the big picture and really knows his stuff. We will never go anywhere else
