Invisalign Clear Braces

If you wish that you had a straighter smile, you are not alone. Many teens and adults would love to have the benefits of orthodontics without having to spend months, or even years, in brackets and wires. In fact, many of our patients share with us that they would be more likely to undergo orthodontic treatment if it were more aesthetic and convenient.

That is why Dr. Ganjavian has decided to offer Invisalign as an alternative to traditional orthodontics.

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an innovative and high-tech answer to the challenge of traditional orthodontic treatment. Rather than brackets and wires, Invisalign utilizes a crystal clear aligner tray system that gradually and gently moves your teeth over time. The clear aligner trays apply low force and move your teeth slowly, which eliminates the need for painful “tightening” appointments.

Invisalign can address common orthodontic problems such as:

  • Overcrowding
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Gaps
  • Overlapping teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Cosmetic orthodontic issues

For complex orthodontic issues involving your bite, traditional orthodontics might be a better option. An evaluation at our Frederick, MD dental office will allow Dr. Ganjavian to determine if Invisalign is right for you.

How Does Invisalign Work?

The first step to achieving a healthier, more beautiful smile with Invisalign is to come to our office for an evaluation. If you are a good candidate for Invisalign, we will take impressions to send to the Invisalign lab to create your aligner trays. Normally, you will wear each aligner tray for approximately two weeks and then change them out for a new one. Each tray will bring you one step closer to a healthy, beautiful smile.

During your treatment, we will have regular follow-up exams to help us keep your treatment on track. You should wear your trays for at least 22 hours per day so that your treatment progresses in a timely fashion. 

Benefits of Invisalign

Because your aligner trays will be clear and discreet, they will not affect your appearance the way that traditional orthodontics will. Most people will not even notice that you are in treatment!

Since your trays are removable, you can take them out to eat and to clean your teeth. Our patients really appreciate the convenience of not having to use special tools and threader floss to take care of their teeth. This helps you to avoid some of the common problems that come with orthodontic treatment. Plus, your teeth will not have discoloring or cement residue once treatment is complete.
