INVISALIGN®

Sandy Springs Invisalign Specialists

All across the world, more than 8 million people have improved their smiles with Invisalign! Will you be next? Atlanta Orthodontic Specialists helps adults and teens in Sandy Springs, Atlanta, College Park, and Virginia Highlands straighten their teeth the easy way – with Invisalign! Convenient, quick, and comfortable, Invisalign allows you to straighten your smile without cramping your style.

What makes Invisalign better than braces?

  • Transparent – Invisalign aligners are invisible, so no one will know you’re wearing them but you!
  • Comfortable – Invisalign aligners fit into your mouth comfortably.
  • Removable – Eat what you want! You can take your aligners out for sticky or crunchy food that could damage braces.
  • Fast – Get a beautiful straight smile in as little as 6 months!

How long does Invisalign take?

On average, it takes between 12 to 18 months to complete Invisalign treatment. Some people even complete their treatment in as little as 6 months, if their teeth don’t have to move very much to get into the proper position. That’s a significant decrease from the time it takes to straighten teeth with braces, which typically hovers around 24 months.

How Invisalign works?

STEP 1

The first step in your Invisalign treatment in Atlanta is make an appointment to visit our office. One of our orthodontists will use the iTero Element scanner to take a 3D digital scan of your teeth and the anatomy of your mouth. We’ll use that digital scan to custom tailor your treatment plan to you.

STEP 2

Your iTero scans will be sent to the Invisalign laboratory, where your personal aligners will be created. Your aligners will be sent to our office, and you’ll come in to pick them up and try them on. Your orthodontist will make sure they fit just right and comply with Invisalign’s exacting treatment standards.

STEP 3

You’ll wear your aligners all day and night (except when you’re brushing your teeth or eating). Every 1.5 to 2 months, you’ll visit our orthodontic office to make sure your treatment is going well and pick up your next set of aligners. The cycle repeats for the length of your treatment time.

Good candidates for Invisalign

Anyone that doesn’t have significant jaw issues or misalignment can use Invisalign, including people with:

  • Gaps
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Crooked teeth

Cost of Invisalign

Invisalign typically costs between $3000 and $5000. The number of aligners you’ll need over the course of treatment and how long treatment lasts both affect the overall cost of Invisalign treatment.

Does insurance pay for Invisalign?

Many insurances will cover all or part of Invisalign treatment. To know if your insurance covers Invisalign, call your insurance company.

Can kids get Invisalign?

We usually don’t recommend Invisalign for kids because kids tend to lack the maturity to stick to their treatment plan. They’re more likely to forget to put their aligners back in after meals and may lose them. That makes Invisalign is a less suitable option for children, as sticking to the treatment plan is key to seeing the results from Invisalign.
