Treatment with Invisalign clear aligners is a great alternative to metal or ceramic braces. Each invisible appliance improves dental alignment, doing so discreetly and comfortably. Dr. Orson Baek is the dentist to see at Smart Family Dental Care in Norcross. He has created scores of beautiful Invisalign smiles and can help you find yours.

What is Invisalign?

FDA-approved in the late nineties, the Invisalign system is one of today's most popular orthodontic systems. As a qualified Invisalign patient, you'll wear a series of thin, removable aligners, each crafted from inventive SmartTrack acrylic. These aligners are designed in pairs--18 to 30--to correct alignment and bite problems such as:

  • Gaps
  • Crowding
  • Tooth rotation and tipping
  • Buck teeth (overjet)
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Misplaced midline

While only conventional braces can correct severe orthodontic problems, versatile Invisalign works well for mild to moderate issues. Plus, the clear aligners achieve your goals quickly--in about half the time metal wires and brackets take.

Do you qualify?

Your Norcross dentist can tell you when you consult with him at Smart Family Dental Care. Dr. Baek examines prospective Invisalign patients and takes three-dimensional scans. If you qualify, he sends his treatment plan the Invisalign lab. A skilled technician makes your aligners from specialized acrylic.

Over the course of your treatment, you'll:

  • Wear each aligner pair 20 to 22 hours a day, taking it out to brush, floss, eat or attend a special event
  • See Dr. Baek every month for a simple check-up and to receive your new aligners
  • Notice your teeth are moving comfortably and steadily
  • Enjoy a new smile in an average of one year's time

Other benefits of Invisalign

As an Invisalign patient, you'll enjoy how smooth your aligners are with none of the rough, abrasive surfaces traditional braces have. Plus, brushing, flossing and cleaning your aligners are simple.

Finally, Invisalign aligners really work. Your attractive smile will be healthy and easy to clean for the rest of your life. Dr. Baek usually advises his patients keep their smiles well-aligned by wearing a customized retainer and of course, to get their six-month preventive cleanings and examinations at Smart Family Dental Care.
