INVISALIGN®

Atlanta’s Invisalign Specialists

More than 8 million people smile with pride because of Invisalign! Atlanta Orthodontic Specialists have helped countless kids, teens, and adults enjoy movie-star smiles with Invisalign. Fast, convenient, and comfortable, Invisalign gently moves your teeth into the correct position without cramping your style.

Why choose Invisalign over braces?

  • Transparent – Invisalign aligners are completely clear, so your smile is uninterrupted for the entire course of treatment!
  • Removable – Also, they’re removable, allowing you to eat what you want – so enjoy all the popcorn and candy you like!
  • Comfortable – Easy to take on and off.
  • Faster than braces – Invisalign treatment can take as little as 6 months!

How long does Invisalign treatment take?

Every patient is different, but on average, the time to complete Invisalign treatment ranges from 12-18 months. That is significantly shorter than the average time that people wear braces! For some people with only minor alignment issues, Invisalign treatment can take as little as 6 months.

How does Invisalign work?

STEP 1

The first step in your Invisalign treatment in Atlanta is to come in and see us in person. Your orthodontist will use the iTero Element scanner to take a 3D digital scan of your teeth. No gross teeth molds! We’ll use that digital scan to map out a treatment plan made just for you.

STEP 2

Your scans will be digitally delivered to the Invisalign laboratory, where your custom clear aligners will be created. They’ll be shipped to our office, where you’ll come in and try them on for the first time. Our doctors will check to make sure they fit right and adhere to Invisalign’s exacting standards for treatment!

STEP 3

You’ll take your aligners home and wear them all day and night (except when you’re eating or brushing your teeth). Every 6-8 weeks, you’ll come back in for a face-to-face checkup to make sure your treatment is going as planned, and you’ll pick up your next batch of aligners.  This schedule continues through the course of your treatment, and in about a year, you’ll be left with a beautiful, straight smile!

Am I a good candidate for Invisalign?

Except for major issues of the jaw, Invisalign can treat basically any teeth positioning issue that traditional braces can, including:

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

How much does Invisalign cost?

Several factors will affect the price of Invisalign treatment, including how long you need to wear the aligners and how many sets of aligners will be made during the course of your treatment. In general, the total price for Invisalign is between $3000 and $5000.

Does dental insurance pay for Invisalign?

We’ve found that many insurance companies that serve Atlanta companies cover some if not all of the cost of Invisalign treatment. You’ll have to check with your dental insurance company to see if you’ve got Invisalign coverage.

Is Invisalign right for kids?

Invisalign can be used for kids as long as they have lost all their baby teeth. However, whether or not your child should use Invisalign is a matter of maturity, simply because the effectiveness of Invisalign treatment depends greatly on the participation of the patient. As in, whether or not the patients wears their aligners as prescribed. If you don’t think your child will be able to keep their Invisalign aligners in as often as is prescribed, or is at risk of losing them when they take them out for lunch at school, traditional braces may be a better choice.
