No one likes having crooked teeth, but metal braces can be unsightly, uncomfortable, and inconvenient.
At Scott Orthodontics in Mitchellville and Silver Spring, MD, patients can straighten their smiles much more discreetly with Invisalign®.
What makes Invisalign such a popular option?
The Benefits of Invisalign
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.
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.
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.
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.

Invisalign Treatment Timeline
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.
"Professional, Knowledgeable, and Friendly"

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!
