Unhappy with your misaligned or crooked smile? Here at My Braces Doctor in Fairfax, Fredericksburg, and Manassas, VA, Dr. Nadia N. Sina and Dr. Hilda Oweisy can, fortunately, fix this issue with the help of Invisalign. Read on to learn what this orthodontic treatment can do for you.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign uses a computer program to generate a series of safe, transparent, and flexible plastic aligners that are custom-made to fit in your mouth. Since 1997, Invisalign has made many improvements to offer you comfort, a discreet look, and teeth-grinding protection, all while shifting teeth into their proper position. Your aligners can also be conveniently removed to eat, drink, brush, and floss, so that you don't have to neglect your oral care habits.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign clear aligners work to shift teeth in the same way that traditional orthodontics do. First, the specialized computer software will develop an individualized treatment plan from start to finish. Upon receiving your set of aligners, you will wear them on the top and bottom for two weeks before proceeding to the next tray. For optimal results, you should wear Invisalign for 20-22 hours a day. You will repeat this process until treatment is complete.
Am I a Candidate for Invisalign?
After performing a smile assessment at one of our offices in Fairfax, Fredericksburg, or Manassas, VA, either Dr. Nadia N. Sina or Dr. Hilda Oweisy will determine if you are an ideal Invisalign candidate. Invisalign treats many forms of malocclusion, but you should know that it's typically recommended for orthodontic situations with mild-to-moderate spacing or crowding.
