If you would like to straighten your teeth and have a more appealing smile without metal braces, Dr. Greg Cook may recommend that you consider Invisalign® at Appalachian Dental. Invisalign clear aligners are comfortable, easy to use, and can be used to correct a variety of orthodontic cases for patients of all ages. There are many health benefits to straightened teeth, including alleviating jaw pain, aid in tooth strength, and even lower the risk of cardiovascular disease. Please call our dental practice at 865-379-7555 today to schedule your consultation for Invisalign in Alcoa, Tennessee, with our dentist.
Invisalign® is a great choice for our patients who are searching for a more discreet orthodontic treatment option. Rather than using metal brackets and wires like traditional braces, the Invisalign system uses a series of custom-made, computer-generated plastic aligners to straighten your smile. Each set of aligners is designed to make small changes to the alignment of the teeth. As you switch sets of aligners about every two weeks, your teeth will be gradually, gently guided to their proper positions. You will also visit our office on a regular basis during treatment to make certain that your smile is progressing as planned.
In general, Invisalign can be used to treat the same orthodontic issues that are normally treated with braces. Our orthodontist may recommend Invisalign to correct:
Gapped and spaced teeth
Certain problems with the bite, such as an overbite, open bite, underbite, or crossbite
During your initial visit, we will determine whether you are a good candidate for Invisalign. This treatment is often a good choice for adult patients and others who are interested in a virtually invisible orthodontic treatment. In addition to being discreet, Invisalign aligners are also very comfortable because they are custom made from smooth, thin plastic. The aligners are removable as well, which allows you to easily remove them as needed in order to eat, brush, and floss. We welcome you to call or visit us today to learn more about Invisalign.
