Adult Orthodontics that Really Fits Your Lifestyle
Ellicott City’s Invisalign Clear Braces
Don’t be one of the millions who suffer through the embarrassment and discomfort of gaped, overlapped, crooked or crowded teeth because you don’t want metal braces! If you feel that your smile is significantly detracting from your appearance and quality of life, we have a solution that is virtually invisible – Invisalign clear dental aligners.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign dental aligners work on the same principles as regular braces. Both apply directed pressure to guide your teeth into their most ideal position. What makes Invisalign different from traditional braces is that Invisalign aligners are much less visible in your smile– in fact, they are almost invisible!
How does it work then – there’s no wires?
There are no wires with Invisalign, and instead of visits for tightening, we simply exchange your aligner for the next in the set. Since the aligners are made of smooth plastic, there is no cutting or scraping of your delicate oral tissues either.
We create your custom Invisalign aligners by taking molds and pictures of your teeth. We then work with computer technology to develop a series of precision aligners that will work together, one after the other, to get your teeth straight, beautiful and comfortable – all without disrupting your life!
So…. they’re removable?
YES! They’re removable so wearers can eat freely without worrying about food getting stuck, etc. You can also follow your oral hygiene routine in a much more normal fashion. Simply remove your aligners to brush and floss. Invisalign also allows you to maintain your lifestyle in a normal way – you can play any instrument, continue your sporting activities, and even take the aligners out for a date or special occasion.
