Discreetly Straighten Teeth With Invisalign in Chattanooga

The smile that results from metal braces is beautiful – but chances are you’ll feel anything but beautiful during your orthodontic treatment. You may hide your smile much of the time, since you’d rather not reveal a mouth full of metal. You won’t hesitate to smile, though, with Invisalign in Chattanooga, TN. Instead of metal wires and brackets, it straightens teeth with a series of clear plastic aligners.

Compared to braces, Invisalign aligners are:

  • Discreet – Made of BPA-free plastic, the clear aligners fit snugly over your teeth. They’re nearly invisible in photos. In business and social settings, it’s likely no one will even notice you’re wearing them.
  • Comfortable – With no metal to rub against gums or other soft tissue, most people find clear aligners more comfortable than braces.
  • Low Maintenance – Keeping your teeth clean is a breeze because you can take your aligners out for meals and also for oral hygiene. You’ll be able to eat foods like popcorn with no worries about it getting caught in braces.
  • Fast – While Invisalign treatment times will vary, the average for adults is 12 months. That’s several months less than most people spend in metal braces.

Your Invisalign Treatment Plan Is Customized Just For You

  • Your Invisalign treatment plan is as unique as your smile. Dr. Gallien has been working with Invisalign aligners since 2005. He will take digital 3D impressions of your teeth and use them to design a custom treatment plan. The information is sent to an Invisalign lab where your aligners are manufactured. When your aligners arrive, he’ll check the fit of the first set and review your plan with you, answering any questions you might have.

    You’ll wear each Invisalign aligner about two weeks before switching to the next one in your plan. Over time the aligners gently move your teeth into the desired positions. They move them vertically and horizontally and even rotate them if necessary. You’ll check in with us every four to six weeks so we can ensure your treatment is progressing as planned. Unlike braces, you won’t need uncomfortable adjustments.
