Valley Dental Health offers Invisalign® for teens and adults in Hunt Valley, Sparks, Phoenix, MD and the greater Baltimore metro area. Invisalign is the leading type of “clear braces”, helping teens and adults straighten their smiles without metal braces.
Invisalign uses a series of removable trays to gently reposition teeth. Ideal for patients who need mild to moderate orthodontic care, Invisalign may be used to treat a variety of conditions including:
- Tooth crowding
- Spaces between teeth
- Narrow tooth arches
- Underbite or overbite
Invisalign® What to Expect
First, we will take digital impression of your teeth to design custom fit aligners. The Invisalign aligners are made of a flexible, but firm ultra-thin plastic material. Invisible braces are very comfortable and easy to wear. Treatment is most effective when invisible braces are worn constantly, but they can be removed so that you can eat, drink, brush and floss normally.
Depending on your goals, you will wear a series of aligners for approximately 2 weeks at a time. Most patients complete Invisalign treatment in less than 12 months.
Invisalign® vs. Metal Braces
Besides the obvious benefit – the fact that Invisalign aligners are clear so no one knows you’re wearing braces, Invisalign offer a number of clinical benefits:
- Healthier teeth and gums – Invisalign aligners are removable, so you can brush and floss teeth easily
- Gentle on teeth and gums – No worries about damaging tooth enamel or irritations inside the mouth
- Convenient treatment – You will visit our Hunt Valley dental office to monitor your progress vs. an orthodontist
