The Clear Solution for a Straighter Smile
Invisalign® treatment with Dr. Mallory Dawson and the team at Dream Orthodontics can give you beautiful, straight teeth-without metal braces!
The Invisalign Process in Newnan
Invisalign is much more comfortable than traditional metal bracket braces and can create stunning results for patients in Newnan! The Invisalign system is made of clear, lightweight plastic aligners that fit over your teeth and Dr. Mallory Dawson uses them to straighten your smile. They’re even removable, making it easier to eat, drink, and maintain a consistent oral hygiene routine.
At your initial consultation at Dream Orthodontics, we'll take digital scans and X-rays to create a 3D image of your mouth. Dr. Mallory Dawson makes your first set of custom-fitted aligners from these images, and then you begin the process of straightening your teeth.
You’ll probably wear Invisalign aligners for 9–15 months, and will typically use 18–30 sets during your treatment. You wear the trays for about 22 hours a day and remove them to brush your teeth, eat, and drink anything other than water. Based on your individual needs, and the treatment plan put in place by Dream Orthodontics, you’ll wear several sets of trays throughout your orthodontic treatment. You’ll even start to notice a change in just a few months!
A Modern Approach to Orthodontics
Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth! It uses a custom-made series of aligners customized specifically for your smile. These aligners are made of smooth, comfortable and nearly invisible plastic that fit snugly over your teeth.
With Invisalign treatment at Dream Orthodontics, there are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners about every two weeks, until your treatment is complete. Wearing the aligners will gently move your teeth into place little by little, based on the exact movements Dr. Mallory Dawson plans for you.
At Dream Orthodontics, you’ll achieve a great smile with a treatment that doesn’t get in the way of your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that most people in Newnan won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth!
This nearly-invisible option to straighten your teeth is truly changing the way people in Newnan see orthodontic treatment. Dr. Mallory has the education and experience necessary to treat patients with Invisalign, and our office is excited to offer this technology to our braces patients at Dream Orthodontics.
Differences Between Invisalign & Braces
Unlike traditional braces, smooth plastic Invisalign aligners don't have metal components that can irritate your mouth.
Because they’re removed when you eat, you won't have to watch what you eat like you would when wearing braces – bring on the popcorn and peanuts. In fact, the aligners must be removed for eating and for drinking anything other than water. You need to make sure you’re willing to do that before you decide on Invisalign clear braces.
To prevent staining, you’ll need to clean your teeth before putting the aligners back on after each time you eat. Of course, brushing and flossing are much easier than with traditional braces, since you don’t have to work around any brackets and wires.
Braces are a fixed appliance, so they do most of the hard work. Since Invisalign is a removable appliance, it’s important to wear the aligners for at least 22 hours each day, as recommended by Dr. Mallory so they can do their job and straighten your teeth.
Like with traditional braces, you’ll generally need to wear a retainer after Invisalign treatment to maintain your new alignment—and your confident new smile.
