How Invisalign treatment from your Baltimore, Maryland dentist can improve your smile
Whether you are a teenager or an adult, you can benefit from orthodontic treatment. Modern orthodontic treatment can straighten your teeth discreetly and quickly, thanks to Invisalign. This revolutionary orthodontic treatment doesn’t use metal brackets or wires.
Invisalign uses a simple, effective system of clear plastic trays, called aligners, which are smooth and comfortable. Dr. James Delaney Jr. and Dr. Melanie Burke in Baltimore, Maryland want to share more about Invisalign and what treatment can do for you.
There are many reasons why people love Invisalign. When you choose Invisalign, you can count on:
- Discreet treatment, because no one will see the clear plastic aligners
- Comfortable treatment, because there are no sharp metal parts
- Healthy treatment, because you remove the appliance to brush and floss
- Enjoyable treatment, because you can eat the foods you love
You can also count on rapid results because from your first set of aligners to your last set of aligners, treatment only takes 9 to 15 months. You receive your first set of aligners, which you wear for two weeks, and then you change to a new set of aligners. You wear these for another two weeks. You change aligners every two weeks until your treatment is complete.
Invisalign aligners may look delicate, but they are strong enough to fix all the same orthodontic issues as conventional brackets and wires, including issues like these:
- Overbite and underbite
- Crossbite and open bite
- Poorly positioned and rotated teeth
- Overlapping or gapped teeth
Why settle for old-school metal brackets and wires when you can have state-of-the-art orthodontic treatment from Invisalign? If you are thinking about achieving a straighter smile, think about Invisalign as the solution to straightening your smile discreetly.

Do you think wearing metal braces is the only way to straighten your teeth? Although that was the case for years, an innovative new brace system offers a better option. Dr. James Delaney, Jr. and Dr. Melanie Burke, your Baltimore, MD, dentists, share some information about the Invisalign system.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign uses removable aligner trays to realign teeth, rather than wire metals and brackets. Your dentist takes X-rays, impressions and images of your teeth, then uses a special computer program that creates a 3-D model of your mouth. They use the model to design a series of aligners that will gradually move your teeth into the proper alignment. Every two weeks, you'll switch your aligners for a new set.
A good choice for many orthodontic problems in Baltimore
Invisalign can correct all of the same orthodontic issues metal braces do. Whether you have an overbite, underbite, crossbite, open bite, gaps or crowding, Invisalign can improve your smile. If you have a severe orthodontic issue, metal braces may be the better option.
Invisalign is virtually unnoticeable
Many people dislike the appearance of metal braces. No matter what you do, it's impossible to hide or disguise them. Because the Invisalign aligner trays are clear, most people won't even know that you're straightening your teeth.
Eating is easy
If you've ever shared a meal with someone who wore metal braces, you probably noticed that they had to avoid hard or sticky foods and needed to run the restroom immediately after eating to clean bits of foods from their wires. Since you'll remove your aligner trays to eat, you won't have to avoid any type of food and will just brush and floss your teeth as usual.
The best choice for your lifestyle
Sometimes even clear braces can be inconvenient. When you want to attend a special dinner, prom or other event, or play your favorite sport aligner-free, you'll simply remove your trays and reinsert them a few hours later.
