Orthodontics/Invisalign

If you're ready for a smile that transforms your appearance, Invisalign is your answer.

Although there are many choices out there, no other works as effortlessly as the Invisalign system. Invisalign treatment consists of a series of clear aligners that you switch out about every two weeks. Each aligner is individually manufactured with exact calculations to gradually shift your teeth into place. The aligners are clear, making them virtually invisible so no one will know that you are straightening your teeth.

Unlike traditional braces, the trays are comfortable and have smooth edges that will not irritate your gingival tissue or cheeks. The trays can be removed for eating, brushing and flossing, and if need be, for special occasions.

And since your Invisalign system is custom-made for your teeth and your teeth only, with a plan devised by you and your dentist, you know you'll end up with a smile that truly fits. Having a confident smile can change everything. And Invisalign makes the decision easy, because you can get a stunning smile without most people even noticing you're going through treatment.

Invisalign is best used to correct:

  • Overly Crowded Teeth
  • Widely Spaced Teeth
  • Crossbite
  • Overbite
  • Underbite

Dentist LeesburgYour treatment plan begins with a consultation with your dentist. During that consultation, you and your doctor will discuss the options to treat your particular issue. Once your doctor confirms that your issue can be corrected with the Invisalign system, he or she will write a detailed treatment plan that determines how each of your aligners will change throughout your program. When you begin treatment, you'll wear each set of aligners in approximately two-week increments. The aligners gently move your teeth into position, and at the end of each two-week period, you "graduate" to the next set of custom aligners.

As you progress through the series of aligners, your teeth will begin moving, little by little. And you don't have to wait until you complete treatment to see your smile change.  You may start seeing positive changes early in the process. You will have occasional checkups with your doctor--often as little as once every six weeks--in order to gauge your progress.

For most adults, treatment time is just under one year. Of course, your total treatment time depends on your particular situation, so it's important to speak with your doctor about how your situation and goals fit into an Invisalign treatment program.

You're in control of your treatment's success. The more you wear your aligners, the better. Take them out to eat, drink, and brush your teeth. But the more you wear your aligners, the better. You're on your way to the smile you've always dreamed of! Call our office today to schedule a free consultation.
