Straightening Marietta Smiles with Invisalign

When you’re struggling with a crooked smile as an adult, it can feel like you missed your chance to make a change. After all, the last thing you want as a professional is a mouthful of metal braces that make you feel like you’re back in grade school. Thankfully, Invisalign is a great alternative for patients who want to straighten teeth in a more sophisticated, subtle fashion. A cosmetic consultation with Dr. James Merriman in Marietta, GA determines whether Invisalign is the right choice for you.

How does Invisalign work?

Instead of braces, Invisalign patients use a series of clear, customized aligners that are virtually unnoticeable when worn. Each one represents a different stage of teeth as they gradually move into ideal alignment. Your job is easy, the aligner just needs to be worn for a certain number of days before switching to the next in the series. Additionally, attending regular check-ups every few weeks with Dr. Merriman allows him to check progress and ensure that your treatment goes smoothly.

Benefits of choosing Invisalign as your orthodontic solution include:

  • Aligners are removable, meaning that you can practice oral hygiene and eat the foods you love.
  • Do you have an event coming up that you’d like to look your very best for? It’s all right to remove the aligner for an hour or so while you enjoy yourself.
  • Invisalign treatment only lasts 8-18 months in most cases. A significant improvement over the multiple years traditional braces often require.
