Crowded, crooked teeth can be straightened without the metal brackets and wires of traditional orthodontics. Invisalign® is a nearly invisible, removable alternative to braces and is available for both adults and teens. If you have crooked teeth, schedule a consultation with Dr. Gita Tajick at Laurel Laser Dentistry for Invisalign® in Laurel, MD. Invisalign® offers many benefits over traditional braces, including:
- Aligners are made of comfortable, soft plastic that will not irritate your gums and lips.
- Clear aligners are barely noticeable to others.
- Aligners are removable, allowing you to eat, brush, and floss as you usually would.
- Invisalign® requires fewer orthodontic visits.
What to Expect From Invisalign® in Laurel, MD
During your consultation, Dr. Gita Tajick will explain the treatment process and benefits of Invisalign®, and discuss whether this treatment is the best method to help you achieve your smile goals. Invisalign® can effectively address crossbite, underbite, and overbite.
If you decide Invisalign® is right for you, we will take photos, impressions, and x-rays of your teeth. These elements are used to create a 3D representation that allows us to virtually map your journey from crooked teeth to a beautiful, straight smile.
From this data, your customized aligner trays can be created. Unlike traditional metal braces, straightening crooked teeth with Invisalign® will not cut or irritate your gums. Each comfortable, clear plastic tray will be worn for two weeks, marking another stage in your treatment. Worn for 20 to 22 hours per day, aligners are removable, allowing you to eat all of your favorite foods without restriction. When you need to brush and floss your teeth, you will simply remove the aligners for easy access to your teeth and gums.
Visits to our office will be scheduled every six weeks to check your progress. Treatment of gapped or crooked teeth with Invisalign® averages one year for adults and longer for teenagers, depending upon the condition of your teeth.
