Need Invisalign? Our Baltimore office can help
Invisalign might be right for you if you desire a straighter smile, but prefer an alternative to traditional braces. Invisalign allows you to straighten your teeth without the hard brackets and wires of braces. Instead, Invisalign straightens teeth with removable aligner trays that are soft and comfortable to wear. To find out if Invisalign is the right teeth straightening option for you, visit Dr. James Delaney and Dr. Melanie Burke in Baltimore, MD!
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an innovative orthodontic method for straightening your smile. With Invisalign, teeth are moved and straightened using a series of plastic aligner trays custom made for each patient. The custom trays fit over the top and bottom rows of teeth and are replaced every few weeks with a new set of custom trays. Each new set of aligner trays modifies the positioning of the teeth until the teeth eventually reach the desired position. The average length of time needed to straighten your smile with Invisalign is approximately twelve months.
Benefits of Invisalign
Choosing Invisalign to straighten your smile has several benefits, one which is that the custom aligner trays are removable and can be temporarily taken out when eating, taking photos, or brushing and flossing. Being able to remove the trays to brush and floss is a major advantage as it makes maintaining good oral hygiene much easier.
Another benefit of the Invisalign aligner trays is that they are made from a soft plastic material that is flexible and comfortable to wear. There are no hard brackets or wires to irritate the mouth, as can happen with more traditional types of braces. An additional benefit of choosing Invisalign for straightening your smile is that the aligner trays are clear, making them extremely discreet and not readily noticeable to others.
