Invisalign® in Capitol Heights, MD

Have you avoided correcting your misaligned teeth because you don’t want to wear visible metal braces? Today’s dentists know how to straighten teeth in a discreet and aesthetically superior way using Invisalign® plastic aligner trays.

Invisalign Basics: What Is an Aligner Tray?

Traditional braces move your teeth slowly into position over a period of months. Invisalign clear braces work in a similar way, but instead of wires and brackets, they use a series of custom-made, invisible plastic trays that fit snugly over your teeth. Each Invisalign tray is worn for about two weeks before it is replaced by a new one. Invisalign dentists can often correct malocclusion and other orthodontic problems using these transparent braces. For many patients, the best part of wearing Invisalign aligners is that no one has to know.

Invisalign Cost: What Should I Expect?

Invisalign treatment cost is variable. The amount of orthodontic work needed, the complexity of your condition, and Invisalign insurance coverage all affect your final Invisalign cost. Extensive problems may increase the treatment price. For many patients, Invisalign braces cost approximately the same amount as traditional ones. We offer affordable Invisalign treatment with flexible financing options and convenient payment plans. To learn more about getting Invisalign in Capitol Heights, contact our office today for details.

How Long Will It Take Invisalign Aligners to Work?

Like Invisalign cost, your Invisalign length of treatment depends on your personal orthodontic needs. If you have a serious malocclusion or teeth that are severely rotated, it will take longer to move your teeth into the desired position. Correction with Invisalign aligners generally takes between 10 months and two years. Adults often finish treatment within one year, but treatment time for teens varies. After Invisalign corrects your smile, you’ll probably need to wear Invisalign retainers on a long-term basis to maintain your great results.

How Are Invisalign Dentists Different?

A licensed orthodontist or a general dentist with training in Invisalign dentistry qualifies as an Invisalign dentist. Dentists who are experienced in using the aligner tray system are able to produce the best results in the shortest amounts of time. Our dentists are adept in using Invisalign to transform crooked smiles into happy, confident grins.

Invisalign vs Braces: Which Is More Effective?

Choosing an orthodontic treatment is an important task. When it comes down to Invisalign vs braces, appearance isn’t the only factor you should consider. Invisalign is ideal for treating mild and moderate orthodontic abnormalities, but severe problems may respond better to traditional metal braces. The best way to determine the best treatment option is to obtain a professional evaluation by one of our skilled dentists. Call us to set up an appointment, and find out if Invisalign is right for you.

Benefits of Invisalign vs. Benefits of Braces

Metal braces can certainly correct your orthodontic problems and give you a beautiful smile, but dentists and patients everywhere know that Invisalign benefits can make your life easier during treatment. Here are a few that our patients enjoy.

  • Fewer visits to your orthodontist’s office
  • No dietary restrictions
  • No visible hardware in your mouth
  • Easier oral hygiene
  • A gorgeous, straight smile
  • Improved self-confidence

Can I Get Invisalign?

Although Invisalign can correct a range of orthodontic problems, it’s not right for every patient. If you have severe crowding, spacing, misalignment, or other problems, you may not be a good Invisalign candidate. Age is also a factor. Invisalign dentists usually recommend Invisalign for adults and teens but not children. Children’s bones and teeth are still growing rapidly, so traditional braces better suit their needs.

How Would Invisalign Treatment Impact Me?

Plastic aligner tray systems have little effect on lifestyle or daily functions. You’ll need to remove your trays while eating, but there are no food or beverage restrictions to follow. Smoking is not recommended since tobacco products can stain the plastic trays. You should also avoid chewing gum; it can stick to trays and may be difficult to remove.

Aligner Tray Care and Maintenance Tips

  • For the best results, use the manufacturer’s cleaning system to clean your aligners. You can obtain one from our office.
  • If you choose not to use the manufacturer’s system, brush and rinse your aligners using cool or lukewarm water. Avoid using hot water as this will damage your trays.
  • A cracked, broken or warped tray cannot function properly. If one of your aligners becomes damaged, contact us immediately to obtain a new one.
