For residents of Alpharetta, adult braces can provide a self-confidence boost if you might not want to wear metal braces. You can straighten your smile by using Invisalign braces for adults, so only you will know you wear them.
Dr. Doug Worful of Alpharetta SmileCareis a Gold-plus Invisalign provider who can help you straighten your teeth with Invisalign. The process takes about one to two years. The fitting process starts with digital imaging of your teeth. Using Invisalign software, Dr. Worful creates a 3D model of your teeth needed for your Invisalign clear aligners. It also enables the doctor to show you a 3D model of how your teeth will move during treatment and a projected timeframe for the movements. You can see how your smile will look like after you finish the Invisalign process.
Dr. Worful sends the scans to Invisalign, who creates the aligners and ships them back to him. You visit him to pick up your aligners, you wear each aligner for about two weeks. And then move to the next aligner in the series until your teeth become straight.
This series of plastic aligners lets you gradually change your smile and, since they are made from transparent plastic and fit over your teeth, people do not see them. You can take them out while you eat. You can also take them out to safely participate in sports.
The ideal one-year straightening time depends on how crooked your teeth grew naturally and how many hours per day you can wear the aligners. Wearing them for 22 hours per day or more provides the best and quickest results. If you can only wear them 12 hours per day, you will need longer than one year to accomplish the straightening.
