Your smile is an important asset to how you feel about yourself. Unfortunately, half of adults are concerned about the appearance of their teeth. Among the biggest concern is misaligned teeth. This decrease in confidence often causes you to avoid certain social situations, while you may also feel it holds you back for career opportunities. Now, you can get the beautiful smile you have always wanted with Invisalign in Falls Church. Invisalign is the most preferred orthodontic treatment for adults because it offers a sophisticated treatment that does not involve the use of wires or brackets. As a cosmetic dentist in Falls Church, we will give you the confident smile you have always wanted using a nearly invisible treatment.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is far different than traditional metal braces. Instead of using metal wires and brackets to pull the teeth into their correct positions, clear aligners are worn over the teeth. The aligners are created in a series using impressions of your teeth and a customized treatment plan. You wear the aligners over the teeth for about 22 hours per day. Each tray in the series is worn for about two weeks, at which point you can switch to the next tray in the series right from your own home. On average, treatment only takes about 12 months. Within a year, you will have a confident, straight smile.
What are the Benefits of Invisalign?
One reason Invisalign has become the most preferred treatment is due to the fact the aligners are clear. As a result, treatment is virtually undetectable. Plus, the aligners are removable. This prevents the restrictions associated with traditional braces. You will not have dietary restrictions and oral hygiene is easy because you do not have to brush around metal wires or brackets.
Often, Invisalign is much more comfortable than traditional braces. Traditional braces tend to be painful due to tugging and pulling on the teeth, especially after adjustments are made. With Invisalign, there are no adjustments needed. Your teeth will gradually move into position.
Since wires and brackets are not used, there is no irritation from the protrusion of metal into the lips and cheeks. The trays are smooth, allowing for a comfortable fit.
Overall, you will enjoy a more convenient treatment because you will not need adjustments. You will still need to come into the office every few weeks so we can monitor the progression of the treatment, but you will not need appointments as often as those required for metal braces.
How Can I Get Invisalign?
If you are ready to smile confidently with a straight smile, you will need to schedule a consultation. When used on the ideal candidate, Invisalign is just as effective as traditional braces. However, Invisalign cannot be used for those who have severe alignment and bite issues. As a result, we will need to determine if you are a candidate. If you are, we will create a comprehensive treatment plan to give you a beautiful new smile.
