INVISALIGN® in Edgewater, MD
Are you unhappy with your smile? Invisalign® aligners are an easy and convenient way to straighten your teeth without the hassle of bulky metal braces. Invisalign is a great option for both adults and teens who want to straighten their teeth without the look of metal brackets and wires covering their teeth.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a series of clear plastic aligners which are both removable and virtually invisible. You wear the aligners for around 22 hours per day, depending on your treatment plan, and you can remove them for eating, brushing, flossing, or whenever you would like to remove them for events. As long as you wear your aligners for a majority of the day, you can straighten your teeth with no impediment to your normal daily routines.
Invisalign aligners utilize 3-D computer imaging technology to create a series of aligners that will gently reposition teeth over a set period of time. Depending on your goals, Dr. Cutting will create several sets of aligners for you to wear for about 2 weeks at a time. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move little by little, until they have straightened to their final position. With each set of aligners, you get closer to the smile of your dreams. Dr. Cutting will go over your treatment in a consultation.
Benefits of Invisalign
When you straighten your teeth with Invisalign, you don’t have to worry about the discomfort or noticeability of metal braces. Invisalign is clear, barely noticeable, and can be removed at any time. If you wear your aligners for the set number of hours recommended, then you can straighten your teeth at your own convenience. You may sleep in your aligners or take them out for important events such as dates, interviews, parties, or other gatherings where you would rather not wear your aligners. Treatment is straightforward and allows you more freedom than traditional braces.
- Straighter teeth will improve your look and give you a more attractive smile.
- Reduce possible tooth decay and other dental issues by correcting misalignments.
- Feel more confident and self-assured with straighter teeth.
- Clean and floss your teeth more easily and as normal with Invisalign vs traditional braces.
- There are no food or drink restrictions with Invisalign.
Having a more beautiful smile will boost your confidence and improve your oral health. Crooked teeth can be difficult to clean and stain more unevenly. Your teeth can also wear unevenly with misalignment, so straightening your teeth is not just an aesthetic benefit, but also a health benefit. Invisalign is easier on the gums and teeth compared to metal braces, and treatment time can take between 6 months to 2 years, depending on the level of misalignment.
