Invisalign Versus Metal Braces

Marietta GA Clear Dental Aligners

You’re a teen or adult with crooked, gapped or crowded teeth. You’re already self-conscious about your smile and the thought of wearing metal braces just isn’t appealing. We get it. That’s why our Marietta office offers Invisalign – a more preferred alternative to metal braces, but with no less effectiveness.

Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment method that eliminates the need for metal wiring and brackets. Instead, it relies on a series of custom-crafted clear plastic aligner trays to gradually move the teeth into a straight and balanced position. Your part is simple; just wear a provided set of trays for about 20-22 hours per day. You can remove the aligners for eating, brushing and flossing.  At the end of every two weeks, you’ll change out your aligners for the next set. Each one will bring you closer to your perfectly aligned smile!

To appreciate Invisalign most, it is best to understand the unique benefits this system provides compared to traditional metal braces:

Better Appearance:  Without a doubt, the most prized advantage of choosing Invisalign is its discreet appearance. Considering that Invisalign involves no metal, just thin clear aligners, you won’t have to sacrifice your smile confidence in order to straighten your teeth.

Ideal Comfort: Invisalign aligners are made of thin clear plastic. They are precisely designed to fit snugly over each tooth, but not tight enough to cause discomfort. In addition, there’s no metal wires or bulky brackets to irritate your gums or cheek.

Improved Efficiency: Invisalign doesn’t require frequent adjustments or tightening. Therefore, you’ll just check in with us about every six weeks. As an added bonus, the treatment time for Invisalign is often much less than traditional braces. Patients typically reach their orthodontic goals within 8-10 months!

Valued Convenience: Another highlighted benefit of Invisalign is convenience. Since you can remove the trays, you’ll be able to eat the foods you love, remove them for a big event and clean your teeth better without appliance obstructions.

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
