Kaplan Orthodontics is proud to be an Invisalign Elite Provider and the #1 teen provider for Invisalign in Dunwoody!
Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you.
These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements Doctor Kaplan plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten or change. You just pop in a new set of aligners every week until your treatment is complete. You’ll achieve a great smile with little interference in your daily life; you can still eat and drink what you want.With removable aligners you are still able to brush and floss normally to maintain healthy gums and teeth. Please note that more complex problems and significant bite improvements still require traditional braces. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth.
Using advanced 3-D computer-imaging technology; Invisalign formulates your complete treatment plan, from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position. The next step is a series of clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth, they will move them little by little. Each aligner is worn for approximately one week before being replaced by the next in the series, until the final position of your teeth is achieved. Doctor Kaplan will determine your Invisalign treatment time; this is based on your specific needs.
Please note that because they are removable, patient compliance is extremely important with aligners. Invisalign is a wonderful option for many patients, however it is not ideal for every case.
