Could orthodontic treatment be the solution for your dental health or cosmetic concerns?
Many patients know that it could but do not want to experience the embarrassment or inconvenience of metal braces. For those who need mild to moderate orthodontic treatment to address their concerns or problems, Invisalign or Six Month Smiles may be the perfect solution.
Buford dentist Dr. Alla Brown is an Invisalign provider and often recommends this as a cosmetic or restorative dental treatment option. Invisalign and Six Month Smiles can gently and gradually straighten teeth that are crooked or misaligned. Invisalign is more appropriate for patients with bite problems such as cross bite or overbite.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Available for teens and adults, Invisalign uses a series of clear retainers that are custom made by Dr. Brown from molds of your teeth and designed to move teeth into the desired position over a period of about a year. The aligners are custom designed using special CAD/CAM software that enables Dr. Brown to plan your treatment and create predictable results.
Patients can enjoy several key benefits:
- removable retainers allow easy brushing and flossing
- smooth, plastic material is comfortable and does not irritate soft tissues
- they are invisible and no one has to know you are wearing braces
Treatment with Six Month Smiles
This unique and revolutionary clear braces system can provide quick, comfortable orthodontic treatment for a variety of minor cosmetic concerns in as little as six months. Not appropriate for patients with bite problems, this option is recommended for adult patients with crooked or misaligned teeth seeking to enhance the appearance of their smile.
Crooked teeth can go beyond being a cosmetic concern- they can have an impact on oral health. It is often difficult to effectively clean between teeth that are misaligned, increasing the chances of decay and tooth cavities or gum disease. They may also affect a patient’s bite, leading to temporomandibular joint issues, or TMJ, as pressure is placed in the wrong places to accommodate an imbalanced bite.
If you have teeth that are crooked, or have concerns about your bite, schedule a consultation with Dr. Brown. She will perform a thorough exam and discuss the best options for restoring and maintaining your dental health.
