Invisalign® in Baltimore, MD

Are you tired of having crooked teeth or bite problems? In the past, metal braces were your best option, but today’s dentists know how to straighten teeth without all the metal. Invisalign® clear braces can correct your orthodontic problems in a convenient, less noticeable way.

How Does Invisalign Straighten Teeth?

Invisalign plastic aligner trays are like transparent braces that fit over the tops of your teeth. Your dentist creates a series of Invisalign trays that are worn in succession; like braces, they gently move your teeth into their new positions over a period of months. You’ll wear each set of aligners for approximately two weeks before exchanging them for the next set. Invisalign dentists use the system to correct mild and moderate orthodontic problems such as crooked teeth, malocclusion, and spacing issues. Because the Invisalign clear braces are not noticeable while you’re wearing them, your treatment can remain a secret.

How Much Does Invisalign Cost a Typical Patient?

Your Invisalign cost depends on a variety of factors. Each patient is different, so it’s impossible to predict the total Invisalign treatment cost until you’ve had a professional evaluation. The complexity of your dental problems will affect both Invisalign cost and treatment time, but the amount of Invisalign insurance coverage you have will help to reduce costs and make treatment easier to obtain. For many patients, Invisalign braces cost about the same amount as traditional orthodontic correction. Our skilled dentists can provide an estimate of your overall Invisalign cost, and our low-interest, flexible financing options can help make affordable Invisalign a reality. Contact our offices today to learn more about getting Invisalign in Baltimore.

How Long Does It Take to Finish Invisalign Treatment?

Like cost, Invisalign treatment time depends on the extent of your orthodontic needs. Once your dentist has developed a treatment plan, he or she can give you more specific details about your Invisalign length of treatment. In general, treatment with Invisalign aligners takes between 10 and 24 months. Most adults can complete treatment in a year. After your teeth are in position, you may need to wear Invisalign retainers to keep them in place permanently.

Are There Special Invisalign Dentists?

An Invisalign dentist has completed special training in the practice of Invisalign dentistry. Any licensed orthodontist or general dentist with the credentials and experience can provide treatment. Our dentists have extensive experience using the Invisalign system. They can give you the gorgeous smile you’ve always wanted discreetly and in just a few months.

Invisalign vs Braces: Is One Better Than the Other?

Many patients wonder if Invisalign is as effective as traditional braces. In the battle of Invisalign vs braces, the winner depends on the patient’s condition. Appearance is always a consideration to those seeking Invisalign, but the most important deciding factor should be how well the treatment will solve your problems. If you have severe or extensive orthodontic abnormalities, metal braces may be a faster and more effective solution than Invisalign. Our dentists can help determine your needs and guide you toward the best solution.

A Brief List of Invisalign Benefits

For many, the benefits of braces simply can’t compare to the benefits of Invisalign. Here are a few great perks of wearing invisible aligner trays.

  • A wireless smile during treatment
  • Less mouth irritation
  • The ability to remove trays as needed
  • Improved confidence
  • Fewer orthodontic appointments and adjustments
  • Freedom to eat your favorite foods

Can Any Dental Patient Get Invisalign?

Some patients are not ideal candidates for Invisalign. Most Invisalign dentists recommend Invisalign for adults and teens only because children’s teeth and skulls are still developing at a fast rate. Unfortunately, not all adults can undergo treatment either; severe crowding, spacing, and other problems can sometimes be better resolved with metal braces. The best way to learn more about your eligibility for Invisalign orthodontic treatment is to make an appointment with one of our dentists. Contact us to schedule your consultation today.

How Does Invisalign Usually Affect Your Lifestyle?

Wearing plastic aligners doesn’t have a dramatic effect on your way of life. Other than avoiding chewing gum, you won’t have any dietary restrictions. It’s not wise to smoke during treatment because tobacco will stain your aligners. You’ll need to wear your trays while you sleep, but your oral hygiene practices will remain largely unchanged.

Taking Proper Care of Your Plastic Aligner Trays

Caring for Invisalign aligners is even easier than caring for your natural teeth. You can obtain a manufacturer’s cleaning system from our office to keep your aligners sanitary. As an alternative, you can brush and rinse them using warm or cool water. Never use hot water; it can warp the trays. If an aligner gets broken or ceases to fit properly, contact us immediately so that we can provide a replacement.

Getting Invisalign in Baltimore may be one of the best ways to transform your smile and your self-confidence. Contact us today; we’ll help you get started.
