For many, crooked teeth prevent individuals from feeling confident in the appearance of their smile. However, the thought of wearing metal braces for any period of time is often a significant deterrent for adult patients. At Rejuvenation Dental Studio, our Falls Church dentist offers Invisalign, a clear braces option for teens and adults looking to improve their smile without the hassle of metal braces.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that helps straighten teeth in a subtle way. Unlike traditional braces that are made out of metal and are on full display, Invisalign is a new system that consists of a series of clear, removable plastic aligners.
These aligners are then used to create tooth movement and gradually straighten out a misaligned smile. Over the course of treatment, small changes are made to each aligner, allowing Dr. Dang to gradually reposition your teeth into a more attractive and healthier alignment.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign treatment consists of using custom-made clear aligners that fit comfortably over the teeth. As treatment progresses, patients will be given new aligners, typically every week, to help shift and slightly move the teeth vertically and horizontally – even rotating them when necessary.
The use of Invisalign is a great way to gently shift the teeth in the right direction and uses adequate force to ensure that they’re being guided properly and in a timely manner. Seeking a consultation with our Falls Church dentist will help map out a personalized treatment plan to ensure that your specific needs are being met.
Benefits of Using Invisalign
Unlike traditional braces which are fixed on top of the teeth, Invisalign aligners are removable and convenient appliances. Additionally, they’re more aesthetically pleasing to a patient’s smile because they’re not as visible. Patients who use Invisalign aligners won’t have to go through the pain of mouth and gum irritation that can be experienced with traditional braces.
Because the Invisalign aligners are made to fit the patient, they’re comfortable to wear and can be removed when needed. They also require fewer dental visits, making them especially convenient for individuals with busy schedules.
Other benefits of Invisalign include the ability to eat whatever you want and keeping up with good dental hygiene habits. Both can be done by simply taking out the aligner when necessary. Unlike braces, which make brushing and flossing teeth a hassle, Invisalign aligners can be removed – allowing for a thorough cleaning.
