Do you have a misaligned smile? Are your crooked teeth creating a misbalanced bite? Try Invisalign. This restorative dental solution gradually realigns the smile using clear aligners. Dr. Angie Hedlund offers orthodontic treatment with Invisalign in Alpharetta, GA. At Esthetic Dental Solutions, Dr. Hedlund and her team create straighter smiles with Invisalign.
This alternative to metal braces creates a balanced, healthy smile. We customize Invisalign treatment to fit each patient’s smile.

Discover more about Invisalign with answers to these common questions that many patients may have about their orthodontic treatment:
How does Invisalign compare to metal braces?
Metal braces come with dietary restrictions and are not removable. They also require routine appointments, where orthodontists tighten the metal brackets and add new wires, which can irritate the gums. Invisalign uses discreet, comfortable aligners. These aligners may be removed, so patients can eat and drink what they want. Because Invisalign aligners conform to the teeth, they do not irritate the gums and feel natural to wear.
Am I a candidate for Invisalign treatment?
We recommend Invisalign for teenagers and adults with mild to moderate orthodontic problems. For patients with more severe orthodontic issues, we recommend braces or oral surgery. During a consultation, we will discuss your options with you and determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign. Please schedule an appointment with us if you have a misaligned smile and we can help.
How long is Invisalign treatment?
Invisalign treatment typically takes 12 to 18 months. However, treatment times vary from patient to patient. We also ask that patients wear their aligners for 22 hours a day. Wearing the aligners for the appropriate amount of time as well as caring for the aligners keeps patients on track.
How do I care for my Invisalign aligners?
Remove your aligners when eating or drinking anything other than water. Brush your teeth and clean your aligners when you are done eating or drinking to keep them fresh. Wearing your aligners when eating can break or stain them. When your aligners are not in use, keep them safe in their cases.
