How Does Invisalign Work?

The Invisalign Method

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses clear aligner trays instead of metal braces to move teeth into the correct positions. The aligner trays, which cover the entire dental arch, fit snuggly and apply the pressure needed to gently move your teeth.

A series of trays will be custom-designed for your mouth, with each tray incrementally moving teeth a little closer to perfection. Each aligner in the series is worn for about two weeks. While braces are permanently affixed to your teeth throughout treatment, the smooth, comfortable aligner trays are easy to slip off during meals or when it's time to brush and floss your teeth, which makes daily dental hygiene easy. 

Want to Find Out If Invisalign Is Right for You?  Request a Consultation

Are you looking for an orthodontist in the Bowie area who can straighten your smile or your teen's smile with Invisalign? Dr. Scott is the clear choice. He has been using Invisalign to create beautiful smiles since 2001, and he has the advanced skills needed to tackle both simple and complex cases with clear aligners. Plus, unlike most dentists, he is equally skilled in providing treatment using metal braces if those are better suited to your needs. 

During your consultation, Dr. Scott will examine your bite and review your dental history to determine whether aligners or traditional braces will offer the best results.

I'm currently at the beginning of my Invisalign treatment and I'm glad I found this office and Dr. Scott. I shopped around a lot in both DC and Maryland before I decided on this practice. This is definitely the best combination of reasonable pricing, high quality and attentive care that I could find in the DMV area. Both Dr. Scott and the whole staff are great at making you feel at ease, ensuring you understand all the moving pieces (literally) and helping to craft the best customer experience from the moment you walk in the door. Would highly recommend. (I'll try and update this review at the end of my treatment).

We also offer discounts to teachers and to families with multiple members in treatment. 

Do You Have A Teen
Looking to Improve Their Smile?

Invisalign Teen is a perfect fit for Bowie teens with busy lives who can sometimes be forgetful. The teen version of Invisalign comes with a few extras that are bound to please parents:

Compliance Indicators. Aligner trays need to be worn to be effective, but how do you know if your teen is following through? Invisalign Teen aligners have small blue dots that fade if the trays are worn for the required number of hours. If the dots don't fade, you'll know it's time to step in and have a heart-to-heart talk. 

Replacement Aligners. The ability to remove aligners lets teens enjoy the foods they love, but it also means the clear aligners can get balled up in a napkin and accidentally tossed in the trash. We've got that covered. Invisalign Teen allows for six replacement sets, so these "oops" moments won't cost you a dime.

Patients of All Ages Love Invisalign ... And for Good Reason

Clear aligners make it possible for patients to straighten their teeth and get the stunning smiles they've always wanted without having to wear metal braces. Here are some of the benefits that have made Invisalign the preferred orthodontic solution in Bowie and elsewhere: 

Inconspicuous

Clear aligners practically disappear in your mouth when you are wearing them. That means they won't be the focal point in years to come as you look back at photos of a younger you. 

Fit Your Lifestyle

If you play contact sports, smooth aligners mean you won't have to worry that blows to the face will cause metal braces to cut the soft tissues in your mouth.  

Offer Food Freedom

Traditional braces put a long list of foods off the menu, from popcorn to caramel apples. That's not the case with aligner trays. Since you remove the trays to eat, you will be free to pick your favorite foods. 

Comfortable

Because aligners distribute pressure over the entire tooth surface to straighten your teeth, they are more comfortable than conventional braces that create a pressure point where the metal bracket attaches to the tooth. And, of course, the smooth plastic trays will never poke you like the metal used in conventional braces.

Treatment Timeline 

Dr. Scott was an early adopter of Invisalign and has been certified since 2001, earning Master Certification in 2017.

Consultation

Our orthodontist will perform a complete orthodontic and dental evaluation during your consultation, which will allow him to decide if you are a candidate for Invisalign or better suited for conventional braces.

Treatment Planning

To capture a detailed impression of your teeth and bite, Dr. Scott will use an advanced digital scanner. Accuracy at this point is essential because the 3-D model will be used to design your aligners.

Fabrication

Our orthodontist will send the digital information and treatment plan to a lab where technicians will create your custom aligners. How many aligner trays you need will depend on your treatment plan and the amount of correction required.

Treatment Period

When the aligners return from the lab, Dr. Scott will fit the first set and explain how to wear and care for them. Aligners should be worn 22 hours a day for about two weeks before switching to the next set. Dr. Scott will see you periodically to ensure treatment is going as planned. 

Your New Smile

When you have gone through all your aligners, your treatment is complete and you're ready to enjoy your new smile. To maintain your smile after treatment, Dr. Scott will recommend wearing a retainer at night to prevent your teeth from shifting out of place.
