If you need mild to moderate orthodontic treatment, Invisalign® invisible aligners may be right for you. Harford County Dentistry is a Fallston, MD Invisalign provider, helping patients gently reposition their teeth and straighten their smiles without traditional metal braces.
These clear retainers offer patients many benefits, but most patients will appreciate the “invisibility” factor. No one has to know that you are receiving orthodontic treatment! This is especially beneficial to adult patients desiring orthodontic treatment, but not wanting to endure the hassles of metal braces.
Invisalign is the number one requested clear aligner system in the United States. This clear aligner system is suitable for both teens and adults. Invisalign is used to treat a variety of mild to moderate orthodontic concerns including:
- Crooked teeth
- Gaps between teeth
Part of what makes Invisalign so remarkable is the patented clear aligners. These special aligners are made to fit perfectly over your teeth. They are hard enough to withstand daily use but soft and flexible for maximum comfort.
Best of all, Invisalign clear aligners are removable so you can eat, brush and floss normally. The smooth, plastic retainers greatly reduce gum and soft tissue irritation, a common side effect of treatment with traditional metal braces.
Dr. Elliott uses specially designed software to design custom-fit retainers that are comfortable and flexible- you will forget you’re wearing them!
Invisalign vs Braces
Studies show that clear aligners may be better for your dental hygiene during treatment compared to traditional metal braces. In addition to the esthetic and comfort advantages, Invisalign offers a number of significant clinical benefits including:
- Improved gum and tooth health during treatment because of better oral hygiene.
- No metal allergies due to brackets and wires.
- More predictable treatment planning with CAD/CAM software.
- Comfortable impressions using a handheld digital scanner- no impression trays.
