Traditional metal braces continue to be a popular and effective orthodontic treatment for straightening teeth, but by now, you’ve probably heard of the alternative of clear aligners. One of these systems is orthodontic aligners, which consists of a series of clear aligners that work to change the position of the teeth. You can find this treatment at Engineered Smiles if you are looking for orthodontic treatment in Marietta, GA.

How do Orthodontic Aligners work?

Orthodontic treatment works to change the position of the teeth by applying a small but steady pressure on the teeth to slowly move them along the gum line. Traditional braces do this with wires and brackets and orthodontic aligners does it using custom-made aligners. The aligners fit to your teeth and are slightly different to each other so that they gradually move your teeth around until you are left with a beautiful, straight smile.

Benefits

Besides the obvious of having a better appearance than metal braces (as orthodontic aligners is made of a clear plastic that appears practically invisible), orthodontic aligners from Engineered Smiles offers several other benefits. It is more comfortable because there is no metal involved that can scratch or prod at the tissues in the mouth. It is also easier to clean as the aligners are removable; you will be able to brush and floss as normal and will only need to give the aligners a rinse to keep them clean.

Procedure

To have the orthodontic aligners made, you will need to visit an orthodontic aligner provider, such as Engineered Smiles in Marietta. The aligners require a doctor’s prescription, and you will need an orthodontist to monitor the treatment. The precise shape of your teeth will be captured through advanced digital x-rays, photos and 3D scanning. Dr. Wang uses this information to create a custom treatment plan for you and fabricate your aligners. Our practice offers the unique ability to print 3D models of your aligners right here in our office instead of relying on an outside lab. This convenient advantage ensures your treatment plan is streamlined for success!

Treatment will require you to wear the aligners for at least 22 hours a day. This time is necessary to give the teeth and gums the opportunity to adjust to their new position. You will be able to take the aligners out to eat, if you wish, but you’ll have to be extra careful to clean your teeth thoroughly afterward to prevent food from getting lodged between the tooth surface and the aligner. The aligners will be switched out periodically according to the treatment plan. By the time you reach the last aligner, you should be left with a straight smile that you’ll love. A retainer will be necessary to prevent the teeth from shifting.

Jennifer W.

Absolutely love this place, I’ve been coming here for the last two years. I didn’t have insurance when I first started, and they had a great payment plan that they were able to let me work with. I see Jennifer, and she is the absolute best! Dr. Wang and his entire staff have always been extremely friendly and helpful. I will continue coming back to this location for years to come come!

Like most people I don't particularly enjoy going to the dentist. The staff, hygienists, and Dr. Wang himself make this practice the best one I have ever gone to. I have been I patient for over a year now. I recently made the decision to get a filling from another dentist redone. That filling had me terrified because my last dentist didn't properly prep me. I told Dr. Wang and he listened very attentively and took the necessary steps to make sure I was properly numbed and fixed my filling and I didn't feel a thing! The shop itself is very clean and organized. It's and old Bank building and they cleverly used the value for the X-ray room. A big shout out to Jennifer for being great and very gentle with my cleanings. Also, the office manager Autumn, for always working with insurance for me and getting the financials as low as possible without me having to ask. I have recommended several people to this practice and all have had great experiences and continue to go back. This practice is absolutely worth checking out!

Dr. Wang and his amazing technology create incredible results. I have had an implant and a crown and they are perfect replicas of my original teeth, only healthy. Also, the work was efficient and practically pain free!! He and his support staff are all kind and gentle. This practice is highly recommended both by me and by my husband!

Jean R.

Dr Wang went above and beyond to make sure I thoroughly understood his proposed treatment plan for a front tooth implant. He spent almost an hour on the phone with me addressing all my questions and concerns and outlining his reasons for choosing a particular method or timeline. He was patient and specific. The following day he spent even more of his time demonstrating some of the incredible technology he would be using to ensure success of the procedure. He is incredibly smart and his engineering knowledge seems to be coming in handy!! Wonderful dentist with a broad range of talent!

Sanjay P.

I’ve continued to use Dr. Wang as my dentist for several years and have always been more than happy with him. His staff is excellent and Jennifer, my dental hygienist, was friendly and did a great job. Dr Wang is always thorough and takes the time to answer all the questions I have - I trust him and continue to refer friends, family and coworkers to him and they have always been happy to say the least!

Margo W.

I could not get my regular dentist and Dr Wang popped up on Google as if by magic! I have a severe phobia about dentists but the glowing reviews about Dr Wang and his staff gave me courage to make that call after years of putting off the dentist. I was still anxious as I arrived for my appointment (I would not have gone but for the pain I was in) Dr. Wang was so personable cheerful and took his time explaining the procedure. He was very gentle. Even though I can't remember their names I can't say enough about his staff who displayed the same patience and encouragement. No one has paid me to do this review. It's all my true feelings. Dr Wang you have a patient for life in me
