Hello and welcome to our online educational platform. We hope to see your smiling face in-person sometime this summer because there is so much that we can do for you! Today we wanted to explore some alternative ways to straighten out the unseemly situation in your mouth.
Are you an adult who has been plagued by certain orthodontic issues most of your life? Would you like to finally do something about your crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth? Then it is time to visit Mint 32 Dentistry for a clear aligner consultation with Dr. Morton.
We are proud to feature two great aligner systems in our Alpharetta, GA dentist’s office. And both Invisalign and Inman offer an easier way to transform your smile than having to wear harsh metal brackets and wires for 2-3 years. Keep reading to hear more about this exciting opportunity and then be sure to follow up with our team to schedule your preliminary appointment.
Clear Orthodontic Aligners
Our alternative orthodontic treatments use the same basic principle: they consist of clear plastic aligner trays (that are similar to mouthpieces) to gently and gradually move your teeth into better positions.
Dr. Morton will help come up with a series of these custom-made aligners that will do all the orthodontic shifting in small increments. Once you begin the process, you’ll just switch them out on your own every two weeks or so instead of coming in for monthly in-office orthodontic adjustments!
A Smooth, Comfortable Experience
Because both Invisalign and Inman aligners are made of a gentle yet durable plastic that feels natural on your gums, cheeks and tongue, it will feel natural as the process unfolds. Plus, they won’t be easily noticed by any of your friends, family or co-workers.
Whichever system you go with, you will really enjoy the smooth, comfortable aligners in part because they are also removable. That means that your menu choices won’t have to be modified. And caring for your orthodontic gear is just a matter of rinsing the aligners under warm water!
At Mint 32 Dentistry, we have found both Invisalign and Inman to be safe, subtle, and effective programs. As long as you are wearing your gear for about 20 hours per day, treatment time is usually only a matter of 6-12 months with Invisalign, depending on the severity of the problems we are addressing. The Inman system works much faster than that, but it only focuses on the front row of teeth. Both plans offer great results in a fraction of the time that old-school braces would require, but there are a few differences between the two, which we can go over in detail during your consultation.
Make It Happen!
Now that you know what we can do to boost the health and appearance of your smile, what are you waiting for? You know you deserve it, and with summer here, there couldn’t be a better time to launch your transformational journey!
