Invisalign is a safe, effective, and discreet way to straighten your teeth. Straighter teeth can enhance your appearance and teeth function and improve your oral health. If you are interested in Invisalign treatment in Crystal City, the team of professional dentists at Dentazure can help you. We are your Arlington dentist, but we are a short drive away from Crystal City. We would love to get you started on Invisalign treatment.
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gently move teeth into the proper position. It is a well-known alternative to regular metal braces and is used to correct various dental problems, including gapping, overcrowding, crooked teeth, and bite problems.
Invisalign aligners work in a similar manner as traditional braces, except that they are almost invisible when wearing them. For better results, you are required to wear them for 20 – 22 hours a day. When used correctly, Invisalign aligners can act on your teeth and jaw to transform your smile.
Invisalign treatment is used to correct several dental problems, including the following:
Invisalign aligners are much less visible than traditional braces, making them suitable for patients looking for a discreet way to straighten their teeth. They are also more comfortable and move the teeth slowly and gently, resulting in less pain than regular braces.
In addition, Invisalign aligners are designed from a smooth plastic material that is gentle and less irritative to the inside of the mouth. The treatment process is also faster than traditional braces. Since Invisalign aligners are removable, you can take them out when brushing and flossing or during special occasions.
Our lead dentist, Dr. Rima Kanbaragha, will assess your teeth to make sure Invisalign is right for you. She will also take 3D images of your mouth to create a visual representation of your teeth, showing how they will appear after treatment.
You will get a set of new Invisalign which should be replaced after every two weeks. These aligners will shift your teeth to the appropriate position, and your dentist will review the progress.
Depending on your teeth-straightening requirements, Dr. Kanbaragha may prescribe a retainer to protect your teeth from shifting back to their original position.
Invisalign treatment is generally not painful. And while there may be some discomfort during the initial few days of using the aligners, you will get used to wearing them.
The cost of Invisalign treatment varies depending on the complexity of the treatment required and your specific needs. Dr. Kanbaragha will assess your situation and create an individualized treatment and payment plan to meet your needs and budget.
