Invisalign Fairfax VA
Invisalign is a set of custom-made clear aligners that straighten teeth. This amazing orthodontic treatment is ideal for patients that do not want traditional braces. In fact, patients with mild to moderately misaligned teeth are encouraged to seek a consultation. Straightening teeth is more than a cosmetic choice. It allows patients to maintain a healthier smile by brushing and flossing teeth more thoroughly. For example, impacted teeth can create areas of plaque and tartar buildup. Every patient is unique and so will their treatment plan. Learn more about Invisalign below and contact us today.
How Invisalign Works
Invisalign is a discreet orthodontic treatment. It can correct gapped teeth, mild bites (including underbite, overbite, open bite or crossbite) and crowded teeth.
These clear aligner trays are computer-generated from an impression of the patient’s teeth. The aligners are made of SmartTrack® material that gradually shifts the teeth correctly into place. Only a certified dental professional can prescribe Invisalign.
The Invisalign aligner trays are interchanged every 2 weeks for a period of 6-18 months. Each new aligner usually feels slightly different since they are designed to continue shifting your teeth. For best results, the aligners are to be worn for at least 23 hours, including while you sleep. The good news is, you can easily remove it when you want to eat, brush, or floss.
Even though Invisalign aligners are a solid piece of plastic, they are classified as braces and not retainers since they actively move your teeth to shape your jaw and mouth. Whereas, retainers are used to hold your teeth in place.
Benefits of Invisalign
The clear aligners allow for discreet orthodontic treatment. It is great for teens and adults who want to correct their smile without metal.
Also, since they are made of SmartTrack® material, Invisalign is more comfortable than traditional metal braces. Plus, they can be easily removed when you need to eat or brush your teeth.
Lastly, other orthodontic treatments require dietary restrictions. Anything too hard, sticky or chewy are off-limits. However, with Invisalign, these issues are not a problem. You can simply remove the trays and eat anything you want.
