Invisalign in Gaithersburg
Thanks to Invisalign® obtaining straight teeth in Gaithersburg doesn’t have to result in a mouth full of metal during treatment. At Smiles by Roxana, our orthodontic services provide alternatives to traditional braces. The clear brace system offers a comfortable, aesthetically pleasing way to straighten teeth quickly in a more cosmetic and comfortable fashion.
What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is an alternative brace option for adults and teens that utilizes a series of customized clear aligner trays to gently move teeth into the desired position. Our Gaithersburg orthodontist
creates a treatment plan that involves changing aligner sets every two weeks to make incremented adjustments to the targeted teeth. The aligners are convenient and comfortable to wear during any occasion for a more cosmetic look during and after treatment.
Why Would I Choose Invisalign?
Invisalign® corrects many of the same problems as traditional metal braces without giving up your favorite foods. Aligners are removed when eating, brushing and flossing. They are easy to clean and manage. Patients who choose the clear brace option must be dedicated to wearing the aligners for 22 hours each day in order for treatment to progress properly.
Invisalign® helps to correct:
- Crooked or overcrowded teeth: When there is little to no space between the teeth, they can improperly align and cause crowding or crooked teeth.
- Gaps: The aligners unwanted gaps between teeth
- Malocclusions – Invisalign® treats the types of bite alignment such as: cross bite, overbite, and under bite, these could lead to bone erosion, gum disease, jaw pain, or TMJ.
What Does The Treatment Involve?
Invisalign treatment in Kentlands involves a complete examination of your current dentition with 3-D images of the entire jaw. These images are used to create a customized plan to detail orthodontic needs and determine what your dentition will look after treatment. Through this advanced technology, you will be able to preview your after-treatment smile.
Your smile will gently and gradually shift over the course of treatment. A series of custom tray sets are made from impressions, and each set is worn for a two week period before moving into the next set in succession. Treatment periods vary upon the condition of your dentition and expected results.
