At Envision Dental in Marietta, GA, we offer Invisalign aligners to our adult and teen patients who want to straighten their teeth without having to deal with the drawbacks of traditional braces. Invisalign aligners are custom-made clear BPA-free plastic aligners that fit comfortably over the teeth. They are designed to address specific malocclusions and apply gentle pressure to shift the teeth into place gradually. Patients can take the aligners out to eat, brush, or floss as long as they wear them for about 22 hours a day. Every few weeks, patients receive a new pair of aligners to bring them closer to their straightened smile.
Invisalign aligners were originally designed with adults in mind, recognizing that many adults have issues with misaligned teeth, but wearing braces in their 20s, 30s, and beyond may not sound appealing. The clear aligners offer a discreet and effective alternative to traditional braces, making it possible for adults to straighten their teeth without anyone noticing.
