Many people are not happy with their teeth. Maybe they are twisted or crowded. Perhaps there is uneven spacing or overlapping front teeth. In the past, adults may have avoided orthodontics because they did not want brackets and wires. But today, we offer Invisalign in Rockville, MD.
Invisalign is the clear solution to bracket and wire braces. It is a discreet and more comfortable therapy as well.
The Invisalign Process
Your dentist in 20850 starts you with a consultation. This initial appointment finds your dentist checking the health of your teeth and gums, taking x-rays, and learning whether Invisalign will correct your cosmetic dental issues. This is also a great time to ask questions. Your dentist is more than happy to address your concerns and help you make the best choices for your oral care.
If Invisalign is the best option for your smile goals, your dentist shares the therapy timeframe, which can mean several months or up to two years. We then take impressions of your teeth. And the Invisalign lab relies on these results to craft custom aligners that fit the unique contours of your teeth and gums.
You start with the first aligner in the sequence and change to the next in the series approximately every two weeks until you complete the supply. This marks the end of therapy.
After treatment, your dentist crafts a custom retainer to remind your teeth to remain in their new straight positions.
The Benefits of Invisalign
The clear aligners are virtually invisible, which means you can enjoy discreet orthodontic therapy. You can also remove your aligners to clean your teeth and to enjoy your meals.
The benefits after treatment include an aligned bite, a smile you can be proud of, and teeth that are easier to brush and floss effectively.
