Invisalign at J & J Dental- Marietta, GA

At J & J Dental, we are very excited to announce that we are now offering Invisalign at our Marietta Dentalpractice for patients who are looking to straighten or enhance their oral appearance. Though braces are still an option for some, Invisalign has been growing more and more popular on the market today, due to their aesthetic appearance and easy to use, comfortable framework. If you have any problems with straightening your teeth or simply wanting to correct gaps, overbites, or under bites- without the hassle of braces, then make an appointment with us today or stop in to see how Invisalign can change your confidence.

How do I get Invisalign?

First step to getting started with Invisalign, is to have a consultation with Dr. Bishara at our Marietta location. After your consultation, if Invisalign is right for you, your Marietta dentist, Dr. Bishara will then take x-rays and impressions of your teeth, which will then be used to create a 3D imagine for your mold. After your x-rays have been reviewed, Dr. Bishara will map out a treatment plan for you to show you how your teeth will shift, leaving you with straightened teeth. After reviewing your treatment plan with your, your custom aligners will then be made to start the process.

How does Invisalign work?

After your consultation, your images are sent to Invisalign to create molds for your treatment plan. There will be several molds made to cater to the stages of your alignment process. Invisalign aligners are made out of a BPA- free plastic that will not irritate your gums, teeth, or cheeks- like the metal from traditional braces can do. You will simply follow your treatment plan and wear them throughout the day and only remove them when your eating, brushing your teeth, or flossing.

Office visits

One advantage of having Invisalign, instead of braces, is that you do not have to come into the office as often- which saves you time. With Invisalign, you will come in about every two weeks and switch out sets, which will advance you to the next stage of alignment. This is also a more comfortable process than having to have your teeth tightened, like you would have to have done if you wore braces. You will also have an occasional check-ups around every six weeks just to check your progress.

Every individual is different, but it usually takes around a year for adults to gain full results. If you are a teen and using Invisalign, you can expect the same time frame as braces, which Dr. Bishara will go over with you since every case is different. As you continue your treatment plan, you will see results every time you switch out to a new set. Since there is not a metal frame to work around, your results are much more noticeable. For best results, throughout your treatment, you should plan on wearing your aligners for 20-22 hours per day.
