Braces aren't the only option if your teeth are crooked or you have a bite problem. Invisalign, an orthodontic treatment method offered by your Roswell, GA, dentist, Dr. Stuart Coe, can help you improve your smile discreetly.

The Invisalign process

You'll wear a series of clear, removable aligner trays that slowly realign your teeth if you choose Invisalign. Trays apply pressure on teeth, gradually moving them. During your first Invisalign appointment in the Roswell dental office, your dentist takes digital photographs, X-rays, and impressions of your teeth. These digital images are combined to create a three-dimensional virtual model of your teeth.

Manipulating the 3D image makes it possible to plot the course of your treatment and create aligner trays that will accomplish the goals in your treatment plan. You'll wear each tray for about two weeks, then insert the next tray in the series.

Is Invisalign right for you?

Invisalign may be an excellent option for you if:

  • You want a subtle straightening method: Invisalign aligner trays are made of clear, comfortable plastic to ensure that they blend in with your smile.
  • You have one of the orthodontic issues that Invisalign treats: Invisalign can be used to improve spacing issues, straighten crooked teeth, and correct mild-to-moderate bite problems, including underbite, overbite, crossbite, or open bite.
  • You want to continue eating the same foods: If you wore traditional braces, you'd need to stop eating hard or sticky foods during your treatment. Luckily, food restrictions aren't necessary with Invisalign. Since you'll remove your trays before you eat, you can continue to eat anything you want.
  • You want to be able to take a break occasionally: Invisalign aligner trays can be removed for a few hours if you're playing sports or attending a special event. Of course, the more often you follow the recommended wear schedule, the better. Invisalign aligner trays should be worn for about 22 hours on most days.
  • You prefer a simple oral hygiene routine: The way you brush and floss your teeth won't change during your treatment. After you remove your trays, you'll brush and floss the same way you always have.

Are you ready to straighten your smile with Invisalign? Call your dentist in Roswell, GA, Dr. Stuart Coe, at (770) 475-3600 to schedule your appointment.

Patients who have missing teeth or major tooth and gum problems often have questions about dental implants. Implants are the modern solution for replacing teeth and are now often preferred over other solutions like dentures and bridges. Here are a few of the most common frequently asked questions about dental implants, answered. Having more knowledge of this dental treatment may inspire you to take action and call your Roswell, GA dentist to see if you’re a candidate for this procedure.Dental Implants Roswell GA

How Do Dental Implants Work?
Dental implants are designed to serve the same purpose as the root of a tooth. They are small titanium devices that resemble screws that are inserted into the bone tissue below the gumline. When the implant heals into the bone, which may take several months, an abutment and permanent crown are placed on the top. With a porcelain or ceramic crown, the implanted tooth is indistinguishable from your other teeth.

Why Are Dental Implants the Best Solution?
The main reason why dental implants are the ideal solution is that they are permanent. Once they’re installed, they’re no different than any of your other teeth in terms of function and appearance. They also help keep the bone tissue healthy and strong. When you get dentures or bridges, the bone tissue can degrade over time. 

Who Can Get Dental Implants?
Only patients who have generally good dental health can get dental implants. Viable bone tissue is needed to ensure that the implants will stay rooted. That’s why it’s important to see a dentist for a tooth implant as early as possible. In some cases, a bone grafting procedure can help improve a patient’s chances of having a dental implant integrate successfully.

How Long Will Dental Implants Last?
For patients of a certain age, a dental implant has a good chance of lasting for a lifetime. The crown part of the implant can last for up to 15 years before it may need to be replaced. Seeing your dentist at least two times every year for professional cleanings and becoming meticulous about at-home dental care will ensure that the implant (and your other teeth) stays strong and healthy.
