The Clear Alternative to Braces

Invisalign® aligners are a convenient alternative to braces. They are high-grade, durable plastic trays that are virtually invisible and custom-created to fit your teeth. As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth will gently and gradually shift into place. Invisalign is an excellent teeth-straightening solution for both adults and teenagers who have all of their permanent teeth.

With almost 40 years in practice, Dr. Robert Finkel is one of the most well-regarded and respected dentists in the Atlanta area. His considerable advanced training ensures that your teeth straightening will result in a beautiful, healthy smile. With Invisalign, you can have the benefits of teeth straightening without unattractive metal braces.

What is Invisalign?

Before and after Invisalign placement.Invisalign in Gwinnett County GAInvisalign is the “invisible” way to straighten your teeth, using clear plastic aligners. The aligners are removable, so there are no restrictions on what you can eat. They are designed to move your teeth in small increments, using the right amount of force in the right place at the right time. Each set of aligners are worn for a 2 week period.

Typically, you will be visiting Dr. Finkel every 6 weeks for a “progress report”. Compared to traditional braces, you will be spending much less time coming into the office for adjustments, which is much more convenient!

Conditions Invisalign Can Correct

The Invisalign system is an alternative to braces, for patients whose adult teeth have all come in and who have complete jaw growth. It can effectively treat a broad number of orthodontic conditions.

Some of the conditions Invisalign can treat are:

  • Overly Crowded Teeth

    Over-crowded teethThis occurs when there isn’t enough space within your jaw for all of your teeth to fit normally. When left untreated, overly crowded teeth can lead to dental decay and gum disease, and can prevent the normal function of teeth.

  • Widely Spaced Teeth

    Widely spaced teethThis occurs when the jaw bone continues to grow abnormally. Another cause is teeth shifting into a gap left by a missing tooth or teeth. Spacing issues in teeth can cause some periodontal diseases.

  • Crossbite

    CrossbiteThis occurs when the upper and lower jaws are misaligned. This causes one or more upper teeth to bite on the inside of the lower teeth, and can happen on both the front and/or the sides of the mouth. This issue can cause wear of the teeth, gum disease, and bone loss.

  • Overbite

    OverbiteWhat people commonly refer to as an “overbite” is known to dental professionals as “overjet”. It occurs when the upper teeth bite over the lower teeth. It’s typically caused by genetics, bad oral habits, or over-development of the bone that supports the teeth.

  • Underbite

    UnderbiteThis occurs when the lower teeth protrude past the front teeth. It’s usually caused by undergrowth of the upper jaw, overgrowth of the lower jaw, or both. It can also be caused by missing upper teeth. This issue can prevent the normal function of front teeth or molars, which can lead to tooth wear. It can also cause painful jaw and joint problems.
