Are you seeking an opportunity to straighten your smile without the need for brackets and wires? Our team at Oakton Family Dentistry in Fairfax, VA, has the solution for you!
The Invisalign system is a well-known and loved orthodontic treatment method that works to comfortably and discreetly straighten the teeth. The Invisalign system uses a series of invisible, removable aligners that are specially made to fit your mouth! Our dentist is able to completely customize the treatment plan based on your needs and desires to ensure you LOVE your new smile.
The precisely calculated pressure from the aligners helps move the teeth in small increments over time without pain or discomfort. Invisalign is a great choice for both teens and adults, as it allows them to straighten their smiles without drastic lifestyle or diet changes that are typically necessary with braces.
If Invisalign sounds appealing to you, go ahead and give our team a call! We can schedule a FREE consultation to determine if Invisalign is the right fit for you.
Invisalign clear aligners are an alternative to other orthodontic methods which may feel uncomfortable or appear unsightly on the smile, such as traditional metal braces. The system consists of a collection of translucent, removable aligners that progressively straighten your teeth over the course of approximately six to twelve months.
The primary benefit of Invisalign is that it is invisible – meaning the treatment process can be kept as private as you would like, with no obvious appliances worn as you progress throughout treatment. These aligners are much lighter and more comfortable than most alternative methods and may be removed to eat your favorite meals or brush and floss your teeth.
The Invisalign® Process
- The process 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.
- Using this impression, we will be able to display a model that simulates how Invisalign can align the teeth over time.
- 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.
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.
