Invisalign in Alpharetta, GA
For patients suffering from crooked or misaligned teeth, Dr. Hedlund is happy to provide Invisalign in Alpharetta and Roswell, GA as a cosmetic dentistry solution. Invisalign is a system of clear aligners that gradually apply pressure to your teeth. They will straighten them into your desired position.
Patients enjoy Invisalign because it allows them to undergo mild to moderate orthodontic care without braces. Furthermore, it is a discreet alternative to traditional braces without the metallic look of wires and brackets.
Dr. Hedlund is happy to provide a consultation to determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign treatment. If so, she will start right away in preparing your treatment plan so you can achieve a straighter smile as soon as possible. Schedule an appointment online today or call us at 678-352-1333 for more information.
Dr. Hedlund is a certified Invisalign provider in the Fulton County area. Our personalized Invisalign treatment can correct a variety of dental issues, including crowded teeth, over- and underbite, gap teeth, and open bite.
Invisalign is also highly predictable! We will fully inform you on your teeth straightening progress every step of the way. By taking impressions of your teeth, we create a digital blueprint of how each tooth will need to move throughout the clear aligner treatment.
Here are some common questions we get regarding Invisalign.
Are Invisalign aligners removable?
Yes. Unlike traditional braces, you can remove your Invisalign aligners to eat, drink, and brush your teeth. Additionally, if there is a special occasion like a job interview or a wedding, you can remove your aligners. However, keep in mind that in order for the treatment to be fully effective, you have to wear your aligners for at least 20-22 hours out of the day.
Are there any food restrictions with Invisalign?
No. You can eat and drink anything you want to throughout Invisalign treatment as long as you remove the aligners before doing so. We recommend brushing your teeth before reapplying the aligners. It is especially important after eating or drinking something that will stain your teeth. This is because if any staining is left on your teeth, it can transfer to your aligners and force them to lose their clear appearance. By keeping your teeth and aligners clean, you allow yourself to continue receiving discreet orthodontic care.
How often will I replace my aligners?
This largely depends on your personalized treatment plan. However, on average, Invisalign patients replace their aligners every two weeks. As your teeth continue to straighten into alignment, you will need to continue to replace your aligners and progress to the next stage of straightening as predetermined at the start of your treatment. Dr. Hedlund will help by mapping out this process in full detail at the start of your treatment.
Does Invisalign hurt?
Patients may experience some soreness as their teeth adjust to the straightening aligner. As the aligners are swapped out and more pressure is applied to your teeth, it is likely that the first few days will produce some minor discomfort. However, this is typically reportedly less discomfort than what comes with traditional braces or other orthodontic methods.
Do teeth relapse after Invisalign?
When your teeth shift back out of position after your orthodontic treatment, it is an orthodontic relapse. Relapse can occur after any orthodontic treatment including Invisalign.
How do I know if my Invisalign is working?
Invisalign may take some time before you start to see the effects. After a few months you should be able to notice your teeth shifting into proper positioning.
What happens if you don’t wear Invisalign 22 hours a day?
In order for teeth to respond to orthodontic treatment properly patients must wear their Invisalign for at least 22 hours per day. This means only removing it to eat or clean the appliance. You should wear Invisalign while you sleep for it to be fully effective.
How much do teeth move with each Invisalign tray?
The typical range of movement for a single tooth or a group of teeth is about .25 to .33 millimeters with each new aligner. It is important to be patient while undergoing Invisalign treatment because the movement is slow and progressive.
