Invisalign in Cartersville, GA

Michael Lee, DDS, of Choice One Dental Care of Cartersville, offers Invisalign® clear orthodontic aligners to patients in Cartersville, GA.

What Is Invisalign®?

Invisalign® is a device that works much like braces do to align your teeth. The difference is that Invisalign® is not wire or metal. It consists of custom, clear, flexible, removable aligners. The most noticeable difference is that, just as the name implies, Invisalign® aligners are practically invisible.

Benefits of Invisalign®

The main benefit of Invisalign for most people is the transparency of the aligners. You can wear them without the obvious glint of metal showing when you smile. They are also removable, so those who wear them won’t have to worry about difficulties while eating or drinking. It also helps to keep oral care uncomplicated.

What Is the Procedure for Invisalign®?

The procedure for Invisalign® starts with x-rays and a bite registration. Your information is scanned to create a 3D image, which is then used to figure out what’s needed to move the teeth into the most desirable positions. Once the dentist approves the image and recommended procedure, aligners are created with the purpose of getting your teeth from where they are to where they need to be.

Once the aligners are ready, you wear them for around 20 hours a day. This can vary depending on your unique plan. Every couple of weeks, the aligners will be replaced with others to accommodate the movement of the teeth. On average, it’s around a 12-month process.

Preparing for Invisalign®

Patients should ensure to care properly for their teeth at home. Brushing, flossing, and using mouthwash should be part of their daily routine well before their first Invisalign® treatment. Proper oral maintenance and routine visits will help prevent cavities or wisdom teeth (which serve as a deterrent during the process). Arrange for a consultation with your Choice One Dental Care® dentist who can answer any questions and ensure teeth readiness for this year-long procedure.

Recovery from Invisalign®

Once you complete the Invisalign procedure, you will still have work to do. The last aligner you use will also operate as a retainer. Your teeth will want to move back into their original positions, and wearing the retainer will prevent that from happening. You will only need to wear it when you sleep, and over time you won’t have to wear it as often.

How Much Does Invisalign® Cost?

The cost of Invisalign® can vary. The price will depend on the extent of the procedures required for your unique set of teeth. Similar to braces, your dental insurance may cover some of the cost of Invisalign®. Choice One Dental Care® offers financing through CareCredit®.

Is Invisalign® Right for Me?

Do you have an overbite, crooked teeth, a crowded mouth, or gaps in your teeth? Are you unhappy with your smile, wishing your teeth were straighter? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then Invisalign® is right for you. Invisalign® is a clear tooth aligner system that adjusts your teeth without it looking like you are wearing braces. Consult with your dentist to find out if you are a good candidate for Invisalign®.
