DC dentist, Dr. Shakrokh Soltani, creates straight, healthy smiles with Invisalign aligners. Comfortable and convenient, Invisalign betters orthodontics.
What could be better than a healthy, well-aligned smile? How about achieving it without the hassle of unattractive metal wire and bracket braces? Invisalign clear aligners from DC dentist, Dr. Shakrokh Soltani, promises an efficient, comfortable and discreet path to the smile you’ve always wanted.
It’s not too late for a better smile
Time’s gone on, and you still have tooth alignment problems. You used to think orthodontics were just for kids, but someone told you about Invisalign clear aligners. You have hope and want to learn more.
DC dentist, Dr. Shakrokh Soltani of MyFaceMySmile, believes healthy teeth can be straightened at any age and that orthodontic treatment can work with any walk of life. That’s why he offers qualified teens and adults Invisalign clear aligners in his Washington, DC practice.
Invisalign delivers the oral health and aesthetic benefits of braces without the hygiene, dietary restrictions and “metal mouth” appearance common to traditional bracket and wire treatments.
Custom-made from BPA-free, clear acrylic, Invisalign aligners move crooked teeth into better positions effectively and usually in a shorter period of time than old-style braces.
Who can get Invisalign?
Many people wear Invisalign aligners successfully. Dr. Soltani carefully examines candidates and uses highly advanced imaging to completely understand a patient’s oral structures and jaw before proceeding with treatment recommendations. If appropriate, he sends diagnostic images, photos and treatment instructions to the Invisalign lab for fabrication of the 18 to 30 pairs of aligners needed.
In general, Invisalign works best for mild to moderate orthodontic issues such as:
- protruding teeth
- tooth rotation
- open bite
- cross bite
- under bite
Also, patients should be good about brushing, flossing and keeping their appliances clean. Aligners may be equipped with compliance tabs so dentist, parents and patients know they are wearing their appliances for the 20 to 22 hours per day necessary to complete the treatment on time and as planned.
What are the advantages of Invisalign DC?
Invisalign aligners are virtually undetectable. In other words, no one need know you are wearing them; that’s how clear and thin they are. Each aligner pair comfortably moves teeth, and patients simply visit Dr. Soltani every 4 to 6 weeks to receive new aligners and to get a painless progress check. There are no time-consuming, uncomfortable and complex adjustments.
Also, Invisalign patients can:
- eat their favorite foods without restriction
- remove aligners for special occasions
- clean aligners with mild toothpaste and clear water
- enjoy a new smile in 9 to 18 months, or in about half the time of traditional braces
- keep their smiles healthy with routine exams and cleanings at MyFaceMySmile
- expect to wear a comfortable retainer after treatment
