Why Straighten Your Teeth?
Having straight teeth does more than just boost your confidence. Straight teeth contribute to better dental health, comfort, and function. Additionally, ideal spacing between teeth enables you to remove food debris and plaque from your teeth more effectively, reducing your chances of tooth decay or gum disease. Our dentist can help you achieve ideal dental spacing and positioning with Invisalign clear aligners.
How Invisalign Works
Invisalign is a modern, natural-looking orthodontic solution to fix many bite and alignment issues for adults and teens. It uses a series of clear aligners to gently shift teeth into their optimal position, eliminating the need for wires and brackets. Moreover, Invisalign lets you retain the natural beauty of your smile since the trays are clear. The aligners are less intrusive, easily removable, and simple to clean. As a result, you can continue eating the foods you love with minimal lifestyle modifications.
Our professionals will work with you so that you fully understand the Invisalign treatment process. We'll explain what to expect, how to properly care for the aligners during treatment, and the measures you need to take to achieve maximum results. Some of the key benefits you may experience with Invisalign include:
- No diet modification
- Improved comfort
- Better aesthetics
- Fewer dental visits
- Easy cleaning
You will need to wear your clear aligners for a minimum of 22 hours each day to achieve the best outcome possible. Our team will monitor your progress during your treatment and make any adjustments to your plan as needed. We know that you'll have questions, and we're happy to provide answers and advice throughout your Invisalign process.
Our Silver Spring Invisalign Process
Our team begins every dental service with a thorough examination of your overall oral health. We then take the results of this exam to improve the efficacy of your Invisalign treatment. Once you've decided to proceed with Invisalign clear aligners, we take high-quality impressions of your teeth. Our team then sends out your impressions to a specialized lab where your custom aligners will be made.
When you come back to pick up your trays, our dentist will guide you on how to wear your Invisalign aligners properly. To improve the success of your treatment, it's crucial that you follow our guidelines as closely as possible. In a few weeks, you'll return to our practice so we can assess your treatment progress and make any necessary modifications. And if you have any questions or concerns during your treatment, our dentist is always available to assist you.
What Oral Health Problems Can Invisalign Fix?
Invisalign is a safe and proven treatment solution for many bite and alignment issues. We'll ensure your custom trays fit your unique smile and are designed to gradually shift your teeth into their correct position. Our team will guide you on when to change to the next aligner in your prescribed series to achieve the results you desire.
Some of the dental issues Invisalign can correct include:
- Crooked teeth
- Unwanted gaps
- Crowded teeth
Overall, our Silver Spring Invisalign treatment is ideal for addressing mild to moderate misalignment cases. We can qualify you with an exam, and we'll explain the best options for your specific needs. Once your treatment is complete, our team can also make custom retainers ourselves to keep your teeth in their proper position.
How to Care for Your Invisalign Aligners
You need to take good care of your aligners by cleaning them regularly. It's important to remember to take off your trays while drinking or eating to avoid damaging them. Afterward, clean your teeth and your aligners before you reinsert the clear trays. If you lose a tray or set of aligners, be sure to use the previous ones to avoid losing the progress you've already made, and contact our practice as soon as possible to determine if you're in need of replacement trays.
