Invisalign

Invisalign® An Overview

Invisalign is a revolutionary clear aligner system that is designed to help correct the appearance and alignment of crooked teeth.  This invisible braces treatment is an ideal solution for both teen and adult patients who are seeking an effective, discreet solution for their orthodontic concerns. At our Severna Park dentist office, we believe Invisalign treatment is just one more way that we can help our patients look and feel their best.

In some cases, Invisalign is used as an alternative to traditional metal braces.  The clear aligner trays are not only smooth and comfortable to wear, but they’re also removable; this means you can continue doing all the things you normally would, from brushing and flossing to eating whatever you like.  In addition, their minimalist appearance makes them hardly noticeable to those around you.

Invisalign® What to Expect

Invisalign can be used for a multitude of dental issues:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crowded Teeth
  • Crossbite
  • Gapped Teeth
  • Open Bite
  • Misaligned Teeth

It can also be the perfect treatment for those who had traditional braces in their youth but have experienced a relapse. Invisalign can also be a conservative approach for many patient cosmetic concerns.

During your consultation, our team of dentist will perform a full dental exam, discuss your cosmetic goals, and create a treatment plan based on your needs.

Treatment begins with impressions of your teeth which are used to create your custom aligner trays. Once your aligners are fabricated, you will try them on so we can check the size and fit to ensure they are conducive to an effective treatment. You are expected to wear their aligners for 20-22 hours a day to achieve their desired results. You may remove your aligners to eat and perform your regular oral hygiene routine. Aligners should be replaced about every two weeks; this process is designed to shift the teeth into their appropriate position gradually.

Invisalign can be an ideal solution for both teens and adults who are seeking an effective alternative to traditional metal braces.

Invisalign® FAQs

How long does treatment take?

Treatment length is determined by each patient’s individual needs. Each aligner is worn for 2 weeks at a time. Most comprehensive cases are completed within 12-18 months. Minor or localized changes may take as little of 3-6 months.

How is Invisalign different from Veneers?

While veneers are certainly an option for improving your smile, they only cover up certain dental imperfections, rather than correct them.  Veneers are applied to the front side of the teeth only, and also require the removal of the surface enamel of each tooth—an irreversible procedure. They also may need to be replaced or repaired in your lifetime due to possible chipping or breaking the veneer. So while the outward appearance of the teeth may improve with veneers, the underlying tooth and gum problems could still exist.
