Invisalign® in Annapolis, MD

In the past, an improper bite or alignment problem was usually managed with traditional metal braces, but modern dentists know how to straighten teeth without the awkward brackets and wires. With Invisalign® aligner trays, you can have straight teeth and a gorgeous smile without all the hardware. In fact, no one even has to know that your smile is under construction.

What Are Invisalign Aligner Trays?

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment system that uses a series of invisible plastic trays to slowly move your teeth into their target positions. The custom-made transparent braces fit snugly over your top and bottom rows of teeth. You’ll wear each aligner set for about two weeks, and then your dentist will replace them with a new set. The process continues until your treatment is finished. Invisalign dentists use the system to correct a variety of mild and moderate orthodontic irregularities. Because the trays are virtually invisible, no one besides your dentist has to know that Invisalign clear braces are transforming your smile.

How Much Will My Invisalign Aligners Cost?

The Invisalign cost is different for every person. Factors such as the time required to complete treatment, the severity of your malocclusion, and Invisalign insurance coverage all affect your estimate. In many cases, Invisalign braces cost approximately the same amount as traditional metal braces. If managing Invisalign cost is a concern, we may be able to help you obtain affordable Invisalign with our flexible financing options that let you pay for your aligners over time. To learn more about getting Invisalign in Annapolis, contact our office today.

What Is the Typical Invisalign Length of Treatment?

Like Invisalign cost, Invisalign treatment time varies according to each patient’s orthodontic requirements. Most adults can complete Invisalign therapy in about a year, but some cases may require up to two years. After you’ve completed your treatment, you’ll need to wear Invisalign retainers on a long-term basis to maintain tooth position. The only way to determine the exact length of Invisalign treatment is to consult a professional dentist or orthodontist. Our office can connect you to a qualified dentist who can evaluate your needs.

What Type of Provider Specializes in Invisalign Dentistry?

Licensed general dentists and orthodontists with training and experience in using the Invisalign system are considered to be qualified Invisalign dentists. Our skilled dentists can use this branded aligner tray system to give you the smile you’ve always wanted in the shortest possible length of time. Contact our office to learn more about your options.

Invisalign vs Braces: Are They Equally Effective?

For many patients, Invisalign is as effective as braces for correcting crooked teeth and other problems. Choosing a winner in the battle of Invisalign vs braces often comes down to balancing effectiveness with personal benefits and dental health considerations. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners have no wires or brackets that limit your ability to brush and floss thoroughly, so it’s easier to reduce your risk of gum disease and tooth decay during treatment. However, if you have extensive dental problems, metal braces may correct them more quickly and reliably. If you need help deciding between the two options, our dentists can guide you to the best solution.

Additional Benefits of Invisalign

Efficacy in treating severe cases aside, the benefits of braces can’t hold a candle to Invisalign benefits. Here are the top perks that Invisalign patients enjoy.

  • Better oral hygiene
  • Less equipment
  • Fewer office visits
  • No dietary restrictions
  • Freedom to remove trays if needed
  • No irritating metal wires
  • A great smile and restored confidence

Questions About Invisalign Candidacy

Is Invisalign for adults and children?

Invisalign is recommended for adults and teens. Children’s orthodontic needs are more complex due to their growing tooth and bone structures. Metal braces generally produce better results in children.

Can you get Invisalign on just the top teeth? Can you get Invisalign on just the bottom teeth?

While it’s possible to treat just the top or bottom arch, Invisalign dentists don’t recommend this option. Results are more consistent when both arches are treated at the same time, and the cost of treating only one arch isn’t any lower.

Can I get Invisalign if I have severe orthodontic problems?

Only a qualified dentist can determine if aligner trays can correct your orthodontic problems. If you’re ready to explore your options, contact us to schedule a consultation.

Will Invisalign Treatment Alter My Lifestyle?

Wearing aligners requires very few lifestyle changes. You won’t be able to chew gum, because it will stick to the plastic, and smoking or chewing tobacco is not advised, because it can stain your trays. Consistent wear for 22 hours of each day is required for optimal results.

Maintenance and Daily Care of Plastic Aligner Trays

Cleaning your trays is easy. Use the manufacturer’s cleaning system, or brush and rinse them using warm or cool water. Avoid exposing them to hot water and hot beverages as this can warp the plastic. If a tray becomes damaged, contact your dentist immediately to request a replacement.
