There are many reasons for orthodontic treatment that go beyond creating a pretty smile. Crooked and misaligned teeth can also be the underlying cause of a range of dental concerns that will affect overall dental health. Dr. Deborah King offers Smart Moves® invisible braces for teens and adults in her Buckhead dentist office for patients needing mild to moderate orthodontic treatment.
Smart Moves® clear aligners are ideal for the adult patient who has concerns about the dietary restrictions and appearance of metal braces. This unique hard/soft aligner system also offer several other key benefits to patients:
- Aligners are comfortable and do not irritate the soft tissues of the mouth
- Aligners can be removed for eating and daily oral hygiene
- Treatment is generally complete in less than a year
Smart Moves: What To Expect
Dr. King will meet with you to perform a thorough dental exam and discuss your cosmetic concerns to determine if Smart Moves is right for you. Treatment planning will begin with impressions of your teeth that will be sent to a lab and used to fabricate your aligners. The number of aligners you receive will depend on your desired result and the complexity of your case.
Once your aligners are ready, you will return to our office for the initial placement of your first aligner and given detailed care instructions. You will typically come in for brief treatment check ups every 4-6 weeks so that Dr. King can monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments.
