Comfortable Straightening with Invisalign
While traditional metal braces have been the standard for many decades, Invisalign® clear aligners have grown exponentially in popularity since they were first introduced to the dental community. Many patients have opted for the ease and comfort of Invisalign over other aligning products.
Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry of Maryland offers Invisalign to our patients in Pikesville and the surrounding communities. The comfort of our patients is of the utmost importance to us, and no aligning treatment provides more comfort than Invisalign.
Is Invisalign Right for You?
For many older patients, especially teens and adults, removable aligners are the treatment of choice for misaligned teeth. While many younger patients may not mind metal braces – or lack the discipline necessary to keep their aligners in – those with professional jobs or who may be conscious of their appearance may not be as enthusiastic about bracket-and-wire braces.
Invisalign is best for alignment issues that are mild or moderate. Rotated or tilted teeth, as well as gaps between teeth, can all be easily corrected with Invisalign treatments.
During your visit to our office, ask Dr. Ouazana if Invisalign treatment is right for your unique dental situation. Our team will be able to help you make the most informed decision.
How Invisalign Works
To move the teeth to the correct position, Invisalign uses a series of removable clear aligners. These devices are custom-fabricated to the shape of your smile at each phase of treatment – from the first tray to the last. Invisalign technology is used to map the plan of the aligners, as well as your progress, which allows you to see what your finished smile will look like before you even start.
The Benefits of Invisalign
There are many advantages to choosing Invisalign over traditional metal braces for your orthodontic needs.
Discreteness: The invisible aligners are all but undetectable to others, so you are free to flash your smile in photos or at special events without feeling self-conscious. The clear aligners are very thin, so there is no period of adjustment with your speech.
Comfort: The aligner trays are perfectly molded to your smile, with nothing poking your gums or soft tissue. Patients often forget they are wearing braces at all.
Convenience: The removable aligners allow patients to enjoy their normal lifestyle without having to change their diet or regular activities. They also don’t have to adjust their normal brushing and flossing habits.
Our team provides patients with treatments that meet their expectations for comfort and convenience. With Invisalign, patients take an active role in their journey to a beautiful smile. For more information about the benefits of Invisalign, contact our office today!
