Invisalign® in Fairfax

Straighten Your Smile at Oakton Family Dentistry

There used to be a word that scared families when it came to straightening teeth: braces. Luckily, that’s in the past. Today, Invisalign provides an orthodontic alternative to traditional metal braces, using a clear and discreet aligner system to straighten teeth!

Invisalign aligners are an effective treatment option for adult or teenage patients with mild to moderate misaligned teeth. The aligners are lightweight and comfortable, and unlike many alternative methods, they can be removed to eat your favorite foods or to brush and floss your teeth.

One of the key advantages of Invisalign is that the clear aligners are virtually invisible, and they can be easily removed to maintain your dental hygiene. This allows for a more discreet treatment process without the need for obvious appliances throughout the duration of the treatment. It’s an ideal choice for both teens and adults, as it allows them to straighten their teeth without significant lifestyle or dietary adjustments.

How It Works

The Invisalign system features a series of clear, smooth, plastic aligners that simply slip over your teeth and begin progressively straightening your smile.

One of the most notable features of this system is that the aligner’s appearance is virtually invisible! Instead of bulky metal brackets and wires, you can straighten your smile with sleek, transparent, comfortable material.

Invisalign treatment gradually moves and realigns teeth in small, calculated increments. Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks, and it’s important to wear these trays for at least 22 hours a day; this will ensure your smile progresses in accordance with your treatment plan.

What to Expect

Your Invisalign journey begins with a free consultation at our office. During this time, we will discuss your needs and determine if Invisalign is right for you.

After taking digital impressions of your smile, our team will create a 3D model of your teeth and bite alignment. This allows us to assess the current state of your teeth and identify areas that require improvement.

Using this impression, we will be able to display a model that simulates how Invisalign can align the teeth over time. Based on this information, your dentist will create a personalized treatment plan that addresses your specific dental needs and helps to improve your bite and smile.

We will send your impressions to the Invisalign lab, where a series of custom-made aligners will be built, just for you! The lab then sends back a series of aligners that progressively work to shift your teeth into proper positioning.
