Invisalign® What to Expect

They’re Invisible: Our dentists choose to offer Invisalign at our Buford, Georgia dental office because of its overwhelming success and high level of patient and dentist satisfaction. Patients love Invisalign because no one knows they’re wearing braces. Also, the aligners are removable, so they can be taken out whenever the patient wants to eat, brush or floss, and for special occasions.

They’re Removable: The Invisalign clear braces are made from an ultra-thin, transparent, hard-soft plastic material. The aligners are custom fit to your teeth from an impression taken by the dentist. Depending on your goals, you will have a series of aligners that are worn for about two weeks each. Most patients see results from their Invisalign treatment in 6 – 12 months.

They’re Safe & Gentle: Dentists love Invisalign because it is safe, gentle, and effective. The patented invisible braces system does not damage teeth or gums. Patients can brush and floss normally, leading to better health during treatment. Unlike metal braces, food does not become lodged around brackets causing teeth to wear and stain.

If you think you are a good candidate for the Invisalign clear aligners system, or are unsure, give us a call at (678) 359-4707, or request an appointment online today.

Invisalign® FAQs

How much does Invisalign cost?

The cost of Invisalign treatment depends on the patient’s condition. Factors that are considered are the desired results and number of aligners needed to reposition the teeth into the desired outcome. Your dentist will review all of your treatment costs during an initial consultation. A down payment is needed before treatment begins. Some patients may qualify for financing through CareCredit which can break treatment into affordable monthly payments.

Are there any alternatives to Invisalign?

Invisalign is an excellent treatment for crooked teeth, but it isn’t right for everyone. We can help you if you need traditional metal braces and will coordinate your treatment with an orthodontist. Patients who simply have cosmetic issues such as crooked teeth, crowded teeth or spaced teeth with no major bite problems may qualify for Six Month Smiles.

How long does Invisalign take?

The length of treatment depends on the patient’s condition and desired results. Most patients will complete treatment in 6 to 12 months. Select cases may be complete in less than 6 months, these are patients who simply need minor tooth movement or treatment for orthodontic relapse. Patients who need more significant tooth movement may take 9 months or more.
