COVID-19 Safety Message: Visit our practice with confidence – your safety is our top concern.
We’ve reopened in accordance with CDC, O.S.H.A., and State Dental Board guidelines to responsibly resume seeing our patients for regular dental appointments and treatment. We want to assure you of the measures we take to maintain a clean and safe environment so you can continue to receive needed dental care without fear or concern.
A healthy smile can take you far in life, but if you have a maloccluded or misaligned bite, it could affect both your quality of life and your dental health. Invisalign® in Suwanee might just be the ideal solution to correct your bite, straighten your teeth, and give you new reasons to smile.
What Is Invisalign?
Orthodontic treatment works by applying pressure at specific points to cause the bone tissue to remodel. Conventional braces use brackets that are bonded to your teeth with archwires attached to maintain proper pressure. Invisalign uses clear aligners that look similar to a mouthguard. These aligners are customized for each patient and made of durable transparent thermoplastic. Aligners are worn for about two weeks at a time, and then switched out for a new set. This guides your teeth to their properly balanced positions without the need for permanently bonded brackets and unsightly wires. Much like transparent braces, clear braces can effectively treat most mild-to-moderate malocclusions.
How Much Does Invisalign Cost?
Many people are on a quest to find affordable Invisalign. The Invisalign treatment cost is typically comparable to the cost of braces, but it can vary based on the complexity of your case and the number of aligners needed to complete your treatment plan. Your cost may also be affected if you need additional treatments, such as interproximal reduction or the application of buttons. Dental insurance can significantly lower your out-of-pocket Invisalign cost. Contact our office for more details.
How Long Does Invisalign Take?
Many factors can affect your Invisalign treatment time. How much do your teeth need to be rotated or repositioned? Are your orthodontic problems simple or complex? Are you fully compliant with your treatment recommendations? The average treatment time for adults is about a year. Teens can take from 12 to 18 months. Our team can give you an estimate for your Invisalign length of treatment at your consultation.

Invisalign vs Braces
Several orthodontic treatment options are available. Deciding between conventional braces and clear aligners can be overwhelming, but our team can help you narrow down your options. Comparing Invisalign vs braces is a great way to make your decision.
1. Braces are bonded to your teeth, but Invisalign clear aligners are removable.
2. Braces are visible, but Invisalign is almost impossible to see when you are wearing the aligners.
3. Braces can correct most orthodontic problems ranging from mild to severe, but Invisalign is best for mild-to-moderate problems.
4. Aligners require no major lifestyle changes, but you might need to change your diet and avoid certain activities with braces.
5. Invisalign average treatment time is 12 to 18 months while braces typically take 18 to 24 months.
Is Invisalign as effective as braces? The answer depends on your needs. Our Invisalign dentists can help you decide if clear aligners are a good choice for your smile.
Benefits of Invisalign
The Invisalign benefits go far beyond the aesthetics. With Invisalign in Suwanee, you get many of the same benefits of braces as well as the following:
- No need to change your diet
- No need to change your lifestyle or avoid certain activities
- More comfortable treatment experience
- No metal, wires or brackets to clean around
- A faster treatment experience with fewer office visits
Can Anyone Get Invisalign?
Can you get Invisalign on just the top teeth? Can you get Invisalign on just the bottom teeth? Can I get Invisalign? These are all questions that we hear frequently, and the answer can vary depending on the patient. The clear aligner system is an excellent option for many patients with mild-to-moderate orthodontic problems. However, children whose jaws are still developing and those with severe malocclusions might need to consider other options. Our Invisalign dentists can help you decide if Invisalign for adults or teens is right for you.
Does Insurance Cover Invisalign?
Invisalign insurance is available through dental insurers that offer orthodontic coverage. You will need to check with your plan to determine coverage specifics, but our team can help you get the most out of your plan and explain other available options, including low-interest financing and flexible payment plans. The right options can significantly lower your Invisalign cost with insurance. Contact our office for details.
Teeth After Invisalign
Each aligner you wear moves your teeth incrementally toward their final position; once you reach your final set of aligners, the active phase of treatment is complete. You can now begin the retention phase. Invisalign moves your teeth by applying pressure at specific points, and this causes the bone to remodel around the teeth. Each time you bite or chew, you are also applying pressure to your teeth, and this can cause your teeth to continue to move. Wearing Invisalign retainers will keep your teeth exactly where they need to be. These special retainers look just like Invisalign aligners and virtually disappear when you wear them, so you can be confident of the same privacy and discretion you have grown to appreciate during treatment.
