Do you want straighter teeth, but don’t want to bother with traditional braces?
Traditional braces can be a great solution for patients who want to achieve a straighter smile. However, in recent years, invisible braces have quickly made their way to the forefront of orthodontic treatment. Invisible braces can be a convenient, discreet way to straighten crooked or misaligned teeth for patients of all ages. As dentists, we understand that traditional braces may not fit into your lifestyle, so we offer Invisalign as a way for patients to get the results they want without compromising their lifestyle or dental goals.

What is Invisalign?
Invisalign are clear, removable aligners that adjust your teeth over a period of time. Invisalign can be used to correct a variety of tooth alignment issues. During your consultation, Dr. Morgan or Dr. Dancy will examine your teeth to determine if Invisalign or another orthodontic treatment may be right for you. If Invisalign is the ideal solution for your smile, we will begin the treatment planning process. Using digital imaging, we take 3-D impressions of your teeth to create an accurate model of your smile. Using your impressions, we will create custom-made aligners that fit comfortably and securely on the teeth. Each aligner should be used for two weeks at a time. Unlike traditional braces, patients can remove their aligners to eat, brush, and floss. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Dancy will give you aftercare instructions, schedule future visits, and discuss the length of treatment.
What dental problems does Invisalign Address?
No two cases are alike, so it is important to find a dentist that takes the time to plan a personalized, practical treatment depending on your needs. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Dancy take the time to examine each patient, address their dental concerns, and plan an appropriate treatment. If you are suffering from crooked or misaligned teeth, Invisalign may be the solution for you. Invisalign can address a range of alignment issues, including:
- Gapped teeth
- Open bite
- Overcrowded teeth
Not only does Invisalign correct a variety of dental concerns, but it can also be an excellent solution for children and teens. Wearing traditional braces may require years of treatment. However, with Invisalign, the treatment time is usually shorter. With Invisalign, teens and children can reap the benefit of straighter teeth without dealing with the social effects traditional braces may cause.

Straightening misaligned or crooked teeth are more than just a cosmetic issue, it is a vital part of maintaining optimal oral health. Misaligned teeth are harder to clean, which leaves your teeth more susceptible to developing tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease. Our goal is to help patients achieve a healthier smile through patient-focused, comprehensive dental care. If you would like to discuss your treatment options, contact our Severna Park dental office.
