Can Invisalign Work for Me? Carrollton, GA
Clear Aligner Trays

With its virtually invisible design, highlighted convenience and fast results, it is easy to understand why Invisalign carries a 96% patient satisfaction rate. However, what most patients really want to know is “can Invisalign work for me?”

Invisalign uses custom-made aligners that not only fix the cosmetic concerns of teeth alignment, but also improve your oral health. This innovative orthodontic system delivers the versatility and effectiveness of braces, without the unsightly appearance and uncomfortable wear of metal brackets.

You may be a candidate for Invisalign if you have one or more of the following dental issues:

Gapped Teeth
Gaps or spaces between teeth are a common concern when it comes to smile aesthetics. Gaps, or diastemata, can develop due to abnormal jaw growth, thumb sucking or missing teeth. Fixing unsightly spaces within your smile can not only improve your smile appearance, but it can also prevent dental health issues such as gum problems.

When the upper teeth overlap and nearly hide the lower teeth when biting, an overbite is present. An overbite commonly stems from genetics. However, uneven jaw growth or childhood thumb sucking habits can cause an overbite to develop. Regardless of the cause, this malocclusion should be treated so that jaw problems, gum irritations and tooth wear can be avoided.

Whether you were born with an underbite or you have missing upper teeth that have caused the problem, this bite misalignment needs to be treated to alleviate excessive strain on your jaw joint. An underbite is present when the lower teeth bite in front of the upper teeth. This reversed bite position can result in tooth wear and painful jaw symptoms over time.

Open Bite
If your front teeth of the upper and lower jaw fail to come in contact with each other when biting, you likely have an open bite. Thumb sucking typically causes open bites, but they can also be present in those that have improper jawbone growth. Speech impairment, such as lisping, is commonly associated with an open bite. Patients may also experience painful TMJ problems with this type of misalignment.

Crowded Teeth
Crowding is a primary culprit to a crooked smile. Overly crowded teeth typically occur when there is a lack of jaw space. Unfortunately, crowded, crooked or overlapping teeth can be both a cosmetic concern and an oral health issue. Crowded teeth can be especially challenging to keep clean, which makes your smile more susceptible to decay, gum disease and even bad breath.

A crossbite is also referred to as a “reverse” bite. The most prevalent type of crossbite occurs when one or more upper teeth are behind or inside of the lower teeth. This can cause significant wearing away of the teeth, especially if the front teeth are affected. Crossbites can also be present in the sides or back of the mouth. Chewing function and smile aesthetics are often compromised when a crossbite is present.

This was absolutely the best experience I have ever had with any dentist. Dr. Tejal is so attentive to the needs of her patients. She cares deeply about the quality of service provided and taking care of you individually. You don't feel like a number. You leave knowing that you received the best care and beautiful smile to go with it.

I have never had a bad experience going to see Dr. Kakade and her amazing, caring staff. They make it super easy to book an appointment, send you helpful reminders via text, and you are in and out in a short amount of time with hardly any wait time. The office is warm and inviting with nice decor and even dentist chairs that massage you! Best of all, the entire staff genuinely care about their patients and want to help them have the best experience possible. They remember you and get to know you. I actually look forward to going!

Dr. Tejal and her wonderful staff do everything humanly possible to make every patient feel welcomed, supported, and cared for with the utmost compassion and professionalism. It feels as though one has been adopted into a family of caretakers and that you are a part of the family. 5 Stars and thumbs up all the way! They are the best! I speak from personal experience.


My family has used Dr. Tejal since she started her practice in Carrollton. She is thorough, detailed, and comprehensive in her approach to dental care. She seems to invest in new technology and modern methods to make routine and extraordinary care as easy for the patient as possible. Candy has been my hygienist for over a decade and does a fantastic job restoring my teeth to tip-top shape. On the rare occasion when Candy was unavailable, the other members of Dr. Tejal's team have been excellent.

Jordan D.

Calm and peaceful office.
