Misaligned teeth can impact the aesthetics and health of your smile. Many people have crowded, crooked or gapped teeth that affect their bite and smile appearance. Genetics play a significant role, as misaligned tooth alignment often runs in families. The good news is that orthodontic treatment can straighten teeth in teens and adults to create healthy, beautiful smiles. Our dental team at Envision Dental offers orthodontics for patients at our clinic in Marietta, GA.
Orthodontics include devices and treatments that correct malocclusions or misaligned teeth. Braces are the traditional option for teeth straightening and bite alignment, but not everyone wants to wear braces. The brackets and wires placed on the teeth are noticeable. They can be uncomfortable, and patients must avoid certain foods during treatment. Another option is orthodontic clear aligners, which can straighten teeth discreetly and effectively, without the need for braces.
Clear Aligners for Straight Smiles
Clear aligner orthodontic treatments can be used to straighten most malocclusions. Both adults and teens can benefit from using removable clear aligners to straighten their teeth over several months or longer. The clear plastic aligners are almost invisible, and they can be removed to eat your meals and perform dental hygiene. At Envision Dental, we offer options in orthodontics, including clear aligners:
Clear aligners are designed to be worn 20-22 hours per day. Every few weeks, patients receive a new set of aligners that helps shift the teeth closer to the desired position. Our dentists monitor the progress and ensure our patients are safely improving their tooth and bite alignment for improved smile health and appearance.
