Invisalign® in Baltimore, MD

Traditional metal braces aren’t the only way to correct a crooked smile. Your dentist knows how to straighten teeth without the metal hardware. If you have mild to moderate orthodontic problems, Invisalign® aligner trays may be able to give you a new smile without the embarrassment of visible braces.

The Invisalign Orthodontic Treatment System

Invisalign clear braces are nothing like the awkward metal braces that patients have dreaded for generations. They’re custom-designed for your teeth, and because they’re virtually invisible, no one has to know that your smile is under construction. During Invisalign orthodontic treatment, you’ll wear incremental sets of plastic aligner trays over your top and bottom teeth. Each set is worn for about two weeks and is then replaced by another. Over time, the transparent braces move your teeth into the desired positions, which are carefully designated by your dentist. Invisalign dentists use the treatment system to correct spaces between teeth, crowded teeth, malocclusion, rotated teeth, and a variety of other unsightly problems.

Invisalign Cost: It’s More Affordable Than You Think

Many of our patients discover that Invisalign treatment cost is similar to the cost of getting traditional braces. Every case is unique; your final Invisalign cost will depend on the extent of your orthodontic needs and other factors, such as Invisalign insurance coverage. If Invisalign braces cost more than your budget will allow, don’t worry. Affordable Invisalign isn’t out of your reach. We can help you manage your Invisalign cost with our convenient, low-interest financing options. To learn more about the cost of getting Invisalign in Baltimore, contact us today.

Does It Take a Long Time for Invisalign to Work?

The complexity and extent of your tooth problems dictate your Invisalign length of treatment. If you have severely rotated teeth, serious bite abnormalities or other advanced problems, it will take longer. The typical Invisalign treatment time for adults is about one year. Some patients complete Invisalign in 10 months. Others may require up to two years of treatment. After your Invisalign correction is complete, you may be required to wear Invisalign retainers on a long-term basis to maintain your great new smile.

Who Can Be Invisalign Dentists?

An Invisalign dentist is an orthodontist or general dentist who has completed specialized training and has gained experience in using Invisalign dentistry. Our qualified dentists are adept in using the Invisalign system to create beautiful results in a short amount of time.

Invisalign vs Braces: Head to Head

Many people who have an orthodontic evaluation will be told that they’re great candidates for both Invisalign and traditional braces. The best way to make the right choice is to discuss your needs with your dentist. When it comes down to Invisalign vs braces, if the efficacy of treatment is the same, Invisalign usually has more to offer. For example, because you take your aligners out to eat and brush your teeth, you have much better access to your tooth surfaces than metal braces allow; this makes your hygiene routine easier and protects you from gum disease and tooth decay.

Additional Invisalign Benefits

Learning about Invisalign can make the benefits of braces seem less favorable in comparison. When you choose the Invisalign aligner system, you can enjoy all of the following Invisalign benefits.

  • A stunning new smile without the embarrassment of metal hardware
  • Office visits no more than once per month
  • Trays that are completely removable
  • No diet restrictions
  • Less mouth irritation
  • Better oral health

Is Everyone a Good Invisalign Aligner Candidate?

Unfortunately, not everyone is an ideal candidate for Invisalign. People with severe orthodontic problems may get better results from traditional treatments. Invisalign dentists usually recommend Invisalign for adults and teenagers. Children have more complex treatment needs and usually require metal braces. Our dentists can determine if you are an ideal candidate for treatment with aligner trays. Contact us to schedule a professional consultation.

Does Invisalign Require Lifestyle Changes?

Invisalign treatment doesn’t dramatically change your lifestyle. You’ll need to keep your aligners in most of the time, but you won’t have any dietary restrictions or complicated cleaning procedures. Chewing gum and using tobacco are not recommended, because these habits can damage the plastic trays.

Easy Aligner Tray Maintenance Tips

  • Use the manufacturer’s cleaning system to clean your aligners, or brush and rinse them under running water.
  • Use only cool or lukewarm water. Hot water can warp your trays and render them ineffective.
  • If an aligner becomes damaged in any way, contact your dentist to get a replacement as soon as possible.
