Invisalign® FAQs in Atlanta & Marietta, GA

Invisalign® is a clear braces alternative that straightens the teeth using clear, removable aligners. Smile Studios Orthodontics offers Invisalign® to teens and adults living in Marietta, Atlanta, and the nearby areas of Georgia. We offer this treatment at our offices in Lovejoy, Fairburn, and Powder Springs.

What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign® is a clear, removable alternative to braces that uses a series of clear aligners to gradually shift and straighten the teeth. They are also referred to as clear braces due to their virtually unnoticeable appearance. Invisalign® can be used to address the following concerns:

  • Overly crowded or spaced teeth
  • Crossbite
  • Overbite
  • Underbite  

How Much Does Invisalign® Cost?

On average, the cost of Invisalign® will be no more than $125 a month for kids and no more than $145 a month for adults. However, the cost of your Invisalign® treatment will largely depend on your unique treatment needs. The cost of treatment can be made more affordable with dental insurance or dental financing.

Who Can Benefit from Invisalign®?

Invisalign® is an appropriate treatment for both teenage and adult patients. The Invisalign® treatment requires more discipline than braces, so it may not be suitable for younger patients. However, anyone who would like to achieve a straighter, healthier smile without worrying about the cosmetic appearance of braces may be able to benefit from Invisalign®. 

How Does Invisalign® Work?

Invisalign® aligners are custom-fit using 3D imaging technology to ensure optimal fit and efficacy. Each aligner is worn for a few weeks at a time, shifting your teeth little by little. After a few weeks, you will switch to a new set of aligners that will continue the alignment process until your final results are achieved. During the Invisalign® treatment, you will have appointments approximately every two months. Invisalign® requires fewer and shorter appointments than a braces treatment, since no regular adjustments are required; you simply swap out your aligner every few weeks as treatment advances.

 

How Long Will I Have to Wear Invisalign®?

The duration of your Invisalign® treatment will depend on the position that your teeth are in when you begin treatment. However, Invisalign® is typically a quicker, more efficient treatment compared to braces. During your consultation, Dr. Venn will provide you with an estimate after developing a personalized treatment plan.

Do I Need to Avoid Certain Foods with Invisalign®?

Invisalign® aligners should be removed while you are eating, brushing, or flossing. This means that patients will be able to eat all of their favorite foods during their treatment without restriction.
