Certified Invisalign® Provider in Alpharetta, Georgia
Do you have an underbite, overbite or crowded teeth? Consider Invisalign® treatment to get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted — without braces. A complimentary consultation with our dentists, Dr. Richard Papp or Dr. Tiffany Jamison-Rand, in Alpharetta can determine if Invisalign clear aligners are right for you.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a type of clear aligner therapy. This means that it relies on a series of custom-made clear plastic aligners to move your teeth into their correct positions. Aligners are made using advanced 3D imaging technology to ensure that they fit perfectly and provide an effective treatment.
Why would I want Invisalign®?
There are many benefits to choosing Invisalign for your orthodontic treatment. Here are a few:
- Your aligners are made of clear plastic, so they are virtually invisible inside your mouth
- Your aligners are removable – you will be able to eat and drink what you want, and brushing and flossing will be easy
- No metal or wires, giving you a much more comfortable treatment
- Less time spent in our office for adjustments and repairs
- Your treatment comes with a virtual treatment plan so that you can see your future results before you even start wearing your aligners
How does Invisalign work?
During your initial consultation, Dr. Jamison-Rand or Dr. Papp will assess the health of your teeth and determine if Invisalign aligners are the best course of action for your smile. We’ll discuss your expectations from treatment and all costs associated with treatment, and we’ll go over the details of your treatment plan. If you choose treatment with Invisalign, we’ll take impressions and X-rays, which will be sent to the Invisalign lab for the creation of your aligners.
You will need to wear your aligners as often as possible. We recommend that you only remove them to eat, brush and floss your teeth. Ideally, you should wear your aligners 20-22 hours each day. You will wear each set of aligners for a period of 1-2 weeks. After this period, you will switch to a new set of aligners. Each set of aligners will make small changes to the position of your teeth, gradually straightening your smile. You will also need to meet with our dentists about once a month so that Dr. Jamison-Rand or Dr. Papp can ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
Total treatment time takes an average of 1-2 years. Most patients wear 18-30 aligners total during that period of time.
