If you’re interested in treatment with invisible braces, you may have several questions. Take a look at our Invisible Braces Frequently Asked Questions to find the answers to our patients’ most common questions.

How Are Invisible Braces Different?

Invisible braces aren’t like the traditional metal braces you may be picturing. In fact, they don’t use brackets and wires at all. Instead, invisible braces are a series of clear aligners that gradually adjust the positioning of teeth. Invisible braces are used as a treatment alternative to Invisalign®.

Do Invisible Braces Achieve the Same Results as Metal Braces?

If invisible braces are determined to be a suitable treatment option for you, they will produce stunning results. Invisible braces and metal braces can’t be completely compared side by side as they are not always appropriate for treating the same conditions. Rest assured that Dr. Dierkes will recommend the appropriate solution to create the results you’re seeking.

How Often Do I Wear the Invisible Braces?

It is imperative to the success of your treatment that your invisible braces are worn as Dr. Dierkes prescribes which may be up to 22 hours a day. Invisible braces are typically only removed for eating and drinking, as well as oral hygiene care.

Will My Speech Be Affected by Invisible Braces?

You may notice a difference in your speech immediately after treatment, but as you get used to wearing your invisible braces, you will adjust.

How Do I Clean My Invisible Braces?

Invisible braces should be kept clean by regularly brushing them with toothpaste and a toothbrush.

What Are the Benefits of Invisible Braces?

Aside from being nearly invisible, invisible braces offer you more flexibility and fit seamlessly with your lifestyle. There are no foods you need to avoid like with traditional braces, and you can take them out during mealtimes. Invisible braces don’t irritate the mouth like the brackets and wires of metal braces.

Why Choose Dr. Dierkes?

Dr. Dierkes is committed to providing patients with a naturopathic approach to orthodontic and TMJ treatments. His “All Things Considered” approach to orthodontic treatment carefully considers the relationships among teeth, bone, muscles, TMJ, airway, food allergies, nutritional deficiencies and excesses, and endocrine balances and how each will affect the treatment of the patient. With a holistic approach to the care he provides, Dr. Dierkes believes in patient education and effective communication which allows each patient to make informed choices about their care and treatment as well as fosters a positive working relationship between doctor and patient. While the naturopathic approach may take more time, the care is better for the patient, and the results beyond orthodontics and facial esthetics to improve the patient’s overall health.

How Much Do Invisible Braces Cost in Roswell, GA?

The cost of invisible braces is dependent on the extent of the treatment necessary to correct your orthodontic issues. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Dierkes to discuss your needs. We offer financing that can be used to pay out-of-pocket treatment expenses.
