Invisalign was originally developed as an adult oriented orthodontic treatment for patients with mild to moderate dental problems that could be treated with orthodontia.
However, the convenience, ease and aesthetics of invisible braces have quickly become popular with teens and young patients. As an Invisalign provider in the Peachtree City area, Vassey Dental Partners has many successful Invisalign patients and recommends the use of the clear retainer system for a variety of dental problems as well as cosmetic concerns like crooked teeth:
- Malocclusion, or an imbalanced bite
- Gaps between teeth
- Crowded teeth
Invisalign, using a series of customized clear removable retainers, offers many benefits for dental patients. One of the most important is the ability to maintain good oral health with regular brushing and flossing of ALL tooth surfaces with the removability of the retainers. Patients, especially teens and children, appreciate that there are no dietary restrictions-typical for traditional metal braces where food particles easily become trapped and can cause tooth decay if not cared for properly.
One of the benefits that ALL Invisalign patients enjoy is the ability to use orthodontics without them being noticed! This is especially appreciated by adult patients who may feel they are “too old” to be wearing braces.
The dentists of Vassey Dental Partners will use unique Invisalign software to customize treatment plans for their patients and create the series of individually fit retainers. Treatment will typically last about a year, depending on the issue being corrected. During treatment, patients are monitored at Vassey Dental Partners – there is no need for extra trips to an orthodontist!
