Typically, people seek orthodontics if they are embarrassed by the state of their teeth—crooked, twisted, overlapping. But orthodontics with Invisalign is about more than a straight smile. Straight teeth promote better oral health and more effective brushing and flossing.
Your dentist in Pikesville, MD offers Invisalign to help patients achieve their smile objectives and to help them realize better oral health.
Reasons for Invisalign
Invisalign, compared with traditional metal and wire braces, offers a discreet orthodontic experience. The aligners are clear and virtually invisible. Also, unlike conventional braces, you can remove your aligners when brushing, flossing, and eating.
This transparent orthodontic system is ideal for older teens and adults because there is no metal to detract from the smile or draw attention to the orthodontic treatment.
Invisalign corrects crooked, overlapping, twisted, and gapped teeth, while also aligning your bite. An aligned bite and straight teeth mean taking the pressure off specific teeth that do most of the chewing. Straight teeth are also easier to brush and floss.
When considering that you’ll have your teeth for life, it makes sense to have a healthy smile that you can be proud of.
The Invisalign Process
Your dentist examines your teeth and gums to make sure Invisalign is the right choice for your smile needs. We may also take x-rays.
If Invisalign is right for you, we take impressions, and the Invisalign lab uses the results to create custom aligners for you. You change aligners according to your dentist’s instructions—usually every two weeks. When you have finished your supply, your therapy is complete. Your dentist will provide a timeline at your initial consultation.
After you complete your therapy, your dentist provides a custom retainer to train your teeth to remain in their straight positions.
