What Is Invisalign?

The Invisalign System is an alternative treatment to traditional braces that uses the same principles, but a fundamentally different technique to improve alignment. Instead of metal wires and brackets mounted on the front of teeth, Invisalign treatment uses a series of clear, removable plastic trays that fit directly over the entire dental arch. Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible and easy to pop in and out for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing.

When you choose to straighten your teeth with this discreet system, an Invisalign technician will custom-design a series of clear aligners for your unique bite. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before moving to the next in the series. As you graduate from one aligner to the next, your bite will gradually move into alignment.

The Benefits of Invisalign

Artboard 1 copy

Discreet

The aligners are virtually invisible, so those around you probably won't notice them. You'll never have to worry about having metal braces during photo sessions, social events, or presentations at work. 

Comfort

While braces have metal brackets and wires, Invisalign aligners are completely smooth to the touch. This means you won't experience any of the irritation that traditional braces can sometimes cause.

Removable

While the aligners need to be worn for about 22 hours a day to achieve the best results, you can remove them when eating so you don't have to modify your diet. You can also remove the aligners when brushing or flossing, making oral hygiene as easy as ever.

Results

When patients commit to wearing the aligners, Invisalign treatment produces straight smiles just as effectively as traditional braces. In as little as 12 months, you can have a beautiful, symmetrical, and healthy-looking smile that you'll love sharing with the world.

Improved Oral Health and Dental Savings

A straighter smile doesn't just boost your confidence, it boosts your oral health as well. Investing in clear aligners can save you and your family money in the long run by making it that much easier to maintain good dental hygiene and stay on top of your oral health.

Am I a Good Candidate for Invisalign?

Mild to Moderate Cases

Clear aligners are best suited for those with mild to moderate cases of misalignment. For more extensive cases, we may recommend braces. At our offices serving greater Bowie, MD, we offer metal braces and ceramic braces for patients of all ages.

Good Oral Health

Before you can undergo Invisalign treatment, you must have good oral health. Any dental issues such as cavities or gum disease must be addressed before beginning your Invisalign journey. Dr. Scott will perform an evaluation using x-rays and other tools at your initial consultation.

Committed to the Process

While using clear aligners is the simplest orthodontic treatment available, it requires commitment. Aligners must be worn for about 22 hours each day for the best results. Neglecting to wear your aligners could result in a longer treatment time.

No Teeth Grinding

Grinding or clenching can wear down aligners over time. If you wear a nightguard to sleep or have severe bruxism, Dr. Scott may recommend an alternative straightening method.

Invisalign Treatment Timeline

Your Initial Visit

During your first visit with us, we will perform a comprehensive evaluation of your orthodontic problems in our state-of-the-art facility. We will make a thorough diagnosis, and if we decide you're a candidate for Invisalign, we can move ahead with treatment right away.

Planning Your Invisalign Treatment

Based on our diagnostic information, we will construct a detailed, three-dimensional digital model of your bite. We will use the model to create a step-by-step treatment plan and break it into two-week segments.

Your Custom-Manufactured Aligners

Based on the plan, we will have your set of custom clear aligners manufactured to fit your bite. As many as 48 or as few as 12 pairs may be made depending on your individual case. After the aligners are fabricated, you will return to our office for a fitting and receive instructions regarding your treatment plan.

Treatment

You will wear each set of clear aligners for 22 hours a day for two weeks before switching to the next. With each new set of aligners, your teeth will move closer to their proper positions. When you finish wearing each aligner in the series, you can continue to use the last one as a retainer to maintain your smile.

Invisalign Teen

At Scott Orthodontics, we also offer Invisalign Teen, an exciting method that takes the original Invisalign system and customizes it to suit the teenage lifestyle. With Invisalign Teen, each clear aligner comes with a built-in compliance indicator, telling parents, Dr. Scott, and teens themselves if the aligners are being worn enough. We can design aligners with eruption tabs that hold space open for unerupted teeth, allowing our orthodontist to treat teens even if some teeth haven't fully grown in. Invisalign Teen also comes with six replacement aligners, so if any get lost or broken, you have nothing to worry about. Combined with the other benefits of using aligners, Invisalign Teen is ideal for today's busy, socially-conscious teens.
