Invisalign in Pikesville
Our Pikesville, MD dentists use Invisalign treatment to correct many common smile alignment problems, including overcrowding, spacing, and other misalignments. Invisalign is an excellent treatment option for many people, but it’s not right in every situation.
You are a likely a good candidate for Invisalign if:
- You are an adult or in your late teenage years
- You have mild or moderate smile alignment problems
- You do not have severe overcrowding and do not need teeth pulled before you begin your orthodontia
- You are committed to wearing your alignment trays for at least 22 hours each day
- You will continue to brush, floss, and care for your teeth as you usually would
If you meet the above criteria, our dentists will likely approve you for Invisalign in Pikesville. Unfortunately, Invisalign braces are not the right choice for patients who have severe overcrowding or complicated malocclusion problems. If your orthodontic needs are more involved, we will recommend traditional metal braces.
Please feel free to contact us for a complimentary Invisalign evaluation. If you are a candidate for Invisalign, we can get your treatment started right away. To discover what Invisalign can do for your smile, contact our dental office at (410) 684-0173 today!
Our Pikesville Dentists Create A Treatment Plan For You
Orthodontic treatment with Invisalign clear braces is typically shorter than it is with traditional metal braces. The exact length of treatment time, however, varies from person to person.
Your Invisalign treatment plan will be unique to your smile and your individual needs. Invisalign creates straighter smiles by using a series of clear plastic aligners, and you will wear each aligner for several weeks on average. Each aligner will slowly push your teeth into position, and once you can comfortably wear one aligner, you will move to the next.
The length of your treatment will depend on how much your teeth need to move into alignment. For some patients, this takes only a few months. For others, it takes several years. Invisalign treatment usually takes between six months and two years, with the average case lasting about one year. Remember, your smile is different from everyone else's, which means your treatment will be, too.
The best way to put a timeline on your Invisalign treatment plan is to schedule a consultation with our Pikesville dentists. We can evaluate your smile and provide an estimate of how long your Invisalign treatment will take. We can also recommend any tangential or related procedures that should be done alongside your orthodontia.

Invisalign treatment can give a patient many benefits:
1) Straighter, more beautiful smile
2) Healthier gums - properly aligned teeth have tighter gums which lead to better periodontal health
3) Easier oral hygiene - straighter teeth are easier to maintain with regular brushing and flossing
4) Improved chewing - the proper alignment of teeth allows the teeth to come together evenly, thereby improving a person's ability to chew

Straighten Your Teeth
If you want a straighter smile but are looking for an alternative to traditional metal braces, you may want to consider Invisalign invisible braces.
Clear, Attractive Plastic
Invisalign is an orthodontic alternative that straightens teeth without metal and wires. Instead, Invisalign uses a series of clear removable trays, also known as aligners. As their name implies, the plastic Invisalign trays are “invisible” and are very hard to detect once they are in your mouth. Many people choose Invisalign because of its subtle, barely-there appearance that allows them to wear their Invisalign aligners at work and social functions discreetly.
Advanced, Modern Technology
Our Pikesville dentists design Invisalign trays using advanced dental computer technology. This technology allows us to move your teeth into their final position over time incrementally. If you choose Invisalign clear braces, you can expect your treatment to last anywhere from six to 24 months.
You will need to change out your Invisalign liners every few weeks as you move through your treatment program. You will still need to visit our dental office from time to time for check-ups, but you will have fewer trips to the dentist than you would with traditional braces.
