The “invisible” orthodontic treatment: Invisalign! | Dr. Alla Brown

Have you been considering orthodontic treatment but don’t want the inconvenience of traditional metal braces? Do you have a child or teenager who needs orthodontic treatment to correct a mild to moderate bite problem who is balking at the idea of braces?

The “invisible” solution is offered by Dr. Alla Brown at Lanier Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Buford! Dr. Brown offers the Invisalign clear retainer system for orthodontic treatment in patients who have a mild to moderate dental problem or desire a cosmetic change.

Invisalign has many benefits, including the ability for patients to maintain good oral hygiene during treatment because the retainers are removed for brushing and flossing daily. They can also be removed during routine dental cleaning visits with Dr. Brown. This also helps to prevent the possibility of teeth being stained during treatment with metal braces that are permanently attached to each tooth, making brushing difficult.

Dr. Brown recommends Invisalign for a variety of dental problems as well as for cosmetic correction of crooked teeth:

  • Tooth crowding
  • Spaces between teeth
  • Narrow tooth arches
  • Underbite or overbite
  • Crossbite

Orthodontic treatment is most successful when the patient is committed and adheres to prescribed care- young patients will appreciate that there are no dietary restrictions with Invisalign and no more food particles stuck on braces! Invisalign patients will find it easy to follow the treatment plan due to the ease and comfort with which the clear retainers can be removed for cleaning, dental visits and changing into the next retainer. This can be especially important for younger patients who may not be as enthusiastic about orthodontic treatment! In addition, Invisalign retainers will not irritate the soft tissues of the mouth, a common problem for patients using metal braces- especially children and teens.
