Invisalign In Columbia, MD
With more and more college-age students and adults deciding that they want a straighter smile, it’s no surprise that unique orthodontic solutions such as Invisalign have become one of the most popular ways to correct misaligned and crooked smiles. This alternative makes it possible to get the smile you want without having to wear the standard brackets and wires on your teeth. Dr. Mazen Chehab has helped patients of all ages get the beautiful, straight smiles they want with the help of Invisalign.
Invisalign is a clear orthodontic system that uses clear, removable aligners to shift teeth into their ideal position rather than using brackets and wires. Each aligner that we provide you have been specially crafted based on imaging data that we collect from taking digital impressions of your mouth.
We also use state-of-the-art computer software to map out your treatment plan down to every detailed tooth movement. This information is what we provide to an Invisalign-approved lab, so they can create your very own set of aligners.
Once your aligners have been made, you will come back into our office so Dr. Chehab can fit you with the very first set and answer any questions you might have. During this visit, our team will also provide you with detailed instructions that will most likely include,
- How often you need to wear your aligners each day
- When you can replace your aligners for the next set in your treatment
- How to keep your aligners clean
Since Invisalign technology is so advanced and is constantly improving year after year, this means that our patients also spend less time at our practice for checkups. Since Invisalign doesn’t require any adjustments like traditional braces do, this means that most patients can wait about six weeks before coming into our practice, so we can check the progress of their treatment.
Candidates for Invisalign
Invisalign is a great option for older teens and adults who want to get braces but also want a more discreet treatment that won’t be immediately visible to colleagues, friends, and classmates. We understand that nothing is more important than feeling and looking your best, which is why Invisalign offers the best of both worlds. You have the freedom of clear, removable braces while still having the option to fix crowding, crookedness, gaps between teeth, and other bad bites.
