Invisalign Treatment in Annapolis, MD
Invisalign is a virtually hidden way of aligning crooked teeth and closing gaps between the teeth. The procedure consists of a set of nearly invisible detachable see-through aligners that you replace every two-three weeks. For the next set of aligners, each aligner is individually fabricated for your teeth. As you change each aligner your teeth will shift gradually weekly until they are aligned into a position that grants you a natural-looking, beautiful smile. It is an excellent way of inconspicuously enhancing your smile and enabling you to go about your daily tasks without any obstacle. The entire treatment at Annapolis Dental Associates takes between six to twelve months. Unlike traditional orthodontics, there is no major discomfort as the aligners are removable. Brushing your teeth is very simple and no major changes in dietary habits are required.
How do Invisalign Braces Works?
Invisalign is an excellent method that we use to correct misaligned teeth. Once your teeth have been scanned or have your impressions taken, the doctor will decide how many aligners and how many accessories you will need to get your teeth straight. The set of aligners will gradually move your tooth from one position to the next until it reaches its ideal place. To ensure better and quicker results, it is necessary to use your aligners for at least 22 hours per day, for two to three weeks, depending on what the doctor has prescribed.
How you should care for your Invisalign?
The aligners must be taken out while eating or cleaning. We advise that you brush the aligners with your usual toothbrush and toothpaste in cold water. Do not use hot water to clean or sterilize the aligners, as this may cause it to warp or distort.
