The Benefits of Invisalign

Artboard 1 copy

Discretion

The aligners are virtually invisible, so those around you probably won't notice them. You'll never have to worry about having braces during photos, 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.

Removability

While the clear aligners need to be worn for about 22 hours a day to achieve the best results, you can remove them before eating, so you don't have to modify your diet. You will also remove the aligners before brushing or flossing, so oral hygiene remains 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 confident, symmetrical, and healthy-looking smile that you'll love sharing with the world.

What Is Invisalign?

The Invisalign System is an alternative treatment to traditional braces that uses the same principles, but a fundamentally different technique to move the teeth. Instead of metal wires and brackets mounted on the front of teeth, Invisalign treatment uses a series of clear, removable plastic trays called 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.

Your Initial Visit

During your first visit with us, we will perform a comprehensive evaluation of your orthodontic needs. 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 2-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.

Treatment

You will wear each set of clear aligners 22 hours a day for two weeks before switching to the next, and 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 treatment with Invisalign Teen, an exciting treatment 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 also make aligners with "eruption tabs" that hold space open for unerupted teeth, allowing our orthodontist to treat patients even when not all teeth have fully grown in. Invisalign Teen treatment 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 Invisalign, Invisalign Teen is perfect for today's busy, socially-conscious teens.

Maintaining Invisalign Results

After 12 to 18 months, responsible patients can expect straight, healthy smiles. However, you'll have to take some steps to maintain your results.

The best way to maintain your smile is to wear a retainer. Depending on your situation, our orthodontist serving Greater Bowie may recommend you wear a retainer only while you sleep or more often. In some cases, the last set of clear aligners can be used as a retainer.

After you finish your orthodontic treatment, we will schedule at least one follow-up appointment at one of our offices so our doctor can make sure you are fully equipped for success.

Of course, for the best possible smile, always continue to follow the basic rules of dental hygiene. Brush twice and floss at least once daily!
