Crooked and misaligned teeth can ruin your smile. Unfortunately, for a long time the only way to straighten teeth and get a wonderfully aligned smiled was through clunky and uncomfortable metal braces. Today, we now have a great alternative with Invisalign, a clear and wire-free teeth straightening solution offered by Dr. Qureshi in Alexandria, VA.
How Invisalign Works
Invisalign works by slowly transitioning your teeth into proper alignment over the course of six months to a year using a series of custom made trays that you wear on your teeth. Dr. Qureshi will start by examining your teeth to make sure Invisalign will be an effective treatment. Then we will begin treatment by having your initial trays made.
Over time, the Invisalign trays will slightly move your teeth into place, and as you reach different points, we will have new trays made until your teeth are straightened.
Advantages of Invisalign
Invisalign has become the preferred treatment to straighten teeth instead of traditional metal braces. There are several benefits of Invisalign that have helped make it a more popular solution for patients:
- Removable: You can remove the Invisalign trays when you eat, floss, or brush your teeth. It gives you flexibility, but you should keep your aligners on during all other times of the day to get the full benefit.
- Comfort: Invisalign is much more comfortable than metal braces or other appliances. They are sleek and made to fit comfortably on your teeth.
- Discreet: Since the Invisalign trays are clear, they are nearly invisible. Most people will have no idea you’re even wearing them!
