Toccoa, GA (PRWEB) June 15, 2015
Dr. Joseph H. Wilbanks with the Wilbanks Smile Center is pleased to announce that his dental office now offers Invisalign®, a popular orthodontic therapy that discretely moves the teeth. As a dentist in Toccoa, GA, Dr. Wilbanks often sees patients who would like to straighten their teeth but may be wary of the traditional methods. To accommodate his patient needs, the doctor has added this treatment option to his services, so every patient who desires straighter teeth can achieve their goal.
Unlike traditional orthodontic treatments, Invisalign® is a treatment system that utilizes clear aligners or trays to move the teeth. When a patient goes to a dentist in Toccoa, GA, and chooses this method, the doctor first uses 3-D diagnostic imaging to map the patient’s entire mouth. He then uses that information to design an individualized treatment plan that includes using a series of custom aligners. Patients wear each tray for about two weeks before progressing to the next one. Each tray is slightly different, so they gradually move the teeth. These aligners are almost invisible, so friends and family may not even notice that patients are straightening their teeth.
Invisalign® is an ideal treatment option for those who are worried about the aesthetics of braces. A dentist in Toccoa, GA, knows that the most common form of orthodontics is traditional metal braces. These use completely metal brackets, wires and rubber bands to move the teeth to their desired position. While the brackets have grown smaller and more discrete over time, they are still noticeable and may present a challenge for many individuals. Children who wish to undergo orthodontic treatment, without making it obvious to others, may choose this treatment. Additionally, adults who must maintain a certain appearance in their workplace may also find this treatment to be just what they require.
Patients who would like a better smile, but do not want to utilize traditional braces, no longer have to deal with a smile that is not aesthetically pleasing. Interested patients can visit Dr. Wilbanks’ website for more information about this virtually invisible orthodontic treatment, or call his office to set up an appointment.
