Dentists in the Marietta, GA area compare Invisalign to traditional metal braces

Teenagers and adults may avoid traditional orthodontic treatment for several reasons. They may dislike the appearance of metal brackets and wires, have concerns about the comfort of braces, or worry about the length of treatment. Regardless of the reasons, 32 Dental in the Marietta, GA area provides an innovative orthodontic service – Invisalign. We use the Invisalign system to treat mild to moderate cases of malocclusion and misaligned, crowded, or overlapping teeth. The series of clear aligner trays are worn in sequential order. Patients change their trays every two weeks and visit the dentist about every six weeks for check-ups. Our dentists, Drs. Lan Vo and Sean Breckley, are happy to explain the Invisalign treatment process and highlight the differences between the aligner system and traditional metal braces.

Learning about the Invisalign treatment process

The first step toward attaining the smile you have always wanted is scheduling a consultation appointment with one of our dentists. The doctor will examine your mouth, teeth, and gums and review your medical history. If you are a candidate for treatment, x-rays are taken and impressions are made of your mouth. These molds are sent to an Invisalign laboratory for the fabrication of your customized trays. Once the trays arrive, we will ensure they fit comfortably before your leave our office.

Understanding the differences between Invisalign and traditional metal braces

It is important to note that both traditional metal braces and Invisalign aligners can effectively treat misaligned, crowded, or overlapping teeth and malocclusion. However, the treatment length of Invisalign is usually 12 to 18 months. In comparison, patients typically wear traditional metal braces for two to three years. In addition to a shorter treatment time, patients can count on a more comfortable experience. Invisalign aligners are made of a smooth plastic material; however, metal braces and brackets have the tendency to irritate the gums and cheeks. Patients also prefer the look of Invisalign over traditional metal braces. They can attain the smiles of their dreams with metal-free treatments.

Do you want to learn more about this popular orthodontic treatment? If you do, we recommend scheduling an Invisalign consultation with Dr. Vo or Breckley by calling 770-423-1132 today.

    I've been seeing Dr. Breckley and Dr. Vo since they opened this practice, and I'm still a huge fan. I recently had some dental work done with them (like this morning). I've never doubted the doctors' abilities, and this experience was no exception. They are experts and are very good at their craft. I want to also mention the support staff, especially the women on the front desk. They are thorough, helpful, and so very nice. I've never experienced the follow-up and follow through at another practice as I have with them at 32 Dental. I always know what my bill will be. There are never any surprises, and that is so comforting in this day of American healthcare. :) I'll continue to refer my friends to them and patron their practice based on my experiences with them! Thanks!

Wow." I would definitely recommend this practice to anyone who wants both kids and adults to be taken care of at the same location!

    32 Dental was quick and kind. The office staff was efficient and the dentist was very thorough. He referred me to a specialist due to the type of root canal needed. He was able to find one available for the same day. I will definitely use them in the future.
