Straighten Out Your Smile with Invisalign
One of the greatest investments you can make is to take care of your smile. You only get one set of teeth, and if you weren’t blessed with a perfectly straight, pearly white smile, why not do whatever you can to fix it? Just think of how straight teeth will improve your confidence and how you interact with others! You’ll never be shy about unleashing that bright, beautiful smile and making the world around you a happier place.
Bloom Dental of Arlington wants to help, and if you live in Alexandria, Ballston, or Tysons Corner, VA, or anywhere around Washington, D.C., we offer Invisalign as a comfortable, attractive option for straightening your teeth.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a system of straightening teeth without the use of conventional metal braces. Where traditional braces use brackets and wires, Invisalign employs clear plastic aligners that straighten out, or “align” teeth over time while remaining relatively “invisible.”
If that’s not enticing enough, unlike metal braces that stay affixed to your teeth 24 hours a day, you can remove Invisalign aligners to brush your teeth or eat. Generally, Invisalign are more comfortable to wear than metal braces.
Invisalign are typically recommended for orthodontic situations with mild to moderate spacing or crowding. They’re easy to use, but since they’re removable, they require discipline in order to work properly and they might not be the best option for young children.
The Invisalign Process
Invisalign is an innovative way to straighten teeth because it harnesses the power of technology to get you the smile you desire. Here’s how:
⦁ After an initial consultation and exam with your dentist here at Bloom Dental of Arlington, we’ll take impressions of your teeth and send them to Invisalign.
⦁ Invisalign technicians use special computer software to create a digital blueprint for straightening your smile.
⦁ The software plots out the step-by-step evolution of your teeth and designs different plastic aligners for each stage of the process.
⦁ You’ll wear a different comfortable, removable aligner every two weeks until the process is complete.
⦁ Each aligner is typically worn about 20 hours a day.
It’s important to regularly clean your Invisalign braces and come back to visit us regularly throughout the process to make sure everything is going according to plan.
How long does it take to straighten teeth with Invisalign?
The process varies from patient to patient and how far his or her teeth have to move. For most adults, treatment with Invisalign will last about a year. It could take up to six weeks to start seeing noticeable results.
Of course, it’s essential to wear the aligners as prescribed and check in with your dentist throughout the process.
