Your crooked teeth have bothered you for years, but you would feel embarrassed to walk into the office with a mouthful of metal braces. Isn’t there another way to achieve a healthy, straight smile? Dr. Shakrokh Soltani of My Face My Smile in Washington, DC uses Invisalign clear aligners for teens and adults wishing to correct their mild to moderate orthodontic problems. This innovative system may be just what you are looking for to once and for all change your smile aesthetics and bite.
The Invisalign System
Used all over the globe to change the how smiles look and function, Invisalign aligners are custom-crafted to your dentist’s specifications. Made from biocompatible acrylic, these smooth and comfortable appliances move teeth into healthier and more attractive positions over an average treatment time of one year.
Numbering 18 to 30 pairs in all, Invisalign aligners are worn 20 to 22 hours per day, but may be removed for meals, brushing, flossing and special events such as graduations and job interviews. That’s one of the most popular aspects of treatment with Invisalign. Resembling professional teeth whitening trays, the aligners fit snugly over top and bottom teeth and are easily cleaned with a mild, non-abrasive toothpaste or plain soap and water.
Who Qualifies for Invisalign in DC?
Many people qualify for Invisalign, and you may be one of them if you have:
Through a comprehensive oral exam, digital X-rays, photos and three-dimensional imaging, Dr. Soltani determines if Invisalign would correct your particular issues. If so, he sends his information and your images to the Invisalign lab for custom fabrication of the aligner pairs. Then, treatment begins.
Life with Invisalign
Invisalign clear aligners are far more comfortable than traditional metal or ceramic bracket and wire braces. Smooth and thin, these appliances require no complex dietary restrictions. Patients simply eat their normal healthy diets with no restrictions on nuts, bagels, celery or other favorite foods.
It is imperative that patients wear their aligners in the scheduled order and for the prescribed amount of time daily. Teen Invisalign may be equipped with compliance tabs to ensure treatment stays on track.
Additionally, Invisalign aligners require no complex or painful adjustments. The patient simply comes to My Face My Smile every four to six weeks. Dr. Soltani does a quick progress check and gives the patient the next aligner pairs. People say they enjoy the time-saving aspect of Invisalign.
