Little-Known Ways Invisalign Is Great For You

If you’re an adult who needs orthodontics but doesn’t want braces, you are not alone. Although traditional braces do a great job, many people feel self-conscious wearing them.

Call us today at 703-552-2530 to make your first appointment for Invisalign. These clear plastic aligners fit comfortably over your teeth. They’re almost invisible. Invisalign results are also comparable with traditional braces. That’s why Dr. Ki has trained extensively in this orthodontic treatment and is a certified Invisalign orthodontics dentist.

You can soon have straight teeth like you should without metal. You just need to call first.

What Is Invisalign

Invisalign is like braces. They’re both orthodontic treatments, so they both reposition your teeth and jaw. This can turn a crooked smile into one that’s straight and aligned. It can also help with malocclusion such as overbites and underbites.

Yet Invisalign is much different. Instead of cementing metal brackets to your teeth and connecting them with wire, Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners. They’re similar to mouthguards but thinner and more comfortable. You wear them over your teeth for most of the day. Each aligner is a bit different. As you change them out every few weeks, your teeth are gently guided to their new position.

By calling our Fairfax, VA dental office today, you can be on the road to having straight teeth with Invisalign. Dr. Ki is a certified Invisalign orthodontics dentist, meaning she has training in Invisalign that not every dentist in the area has.

Invisalign vs. Braces

– There are no eating restrictions with Invisalign.

You have to limit what you eat when you have metal braces. That’s because some foods will either get stuck there or hurt your braces. Gum, caramel, and the like get trapped up against your teeth, while pretzels and bagels are tough enough to damage the wires. Since you’ll be wearing metal braces for 2-3 years, that’s a long time to change your diet.

Call us today at 703-552-2530 for an appointment for Invisalign. With this orthodontic treatment, you can take it out whenever you want. There are no eating restrictions because there’s nothing in your mouth when it’s time to eat.

– Invisalign is practically invisible when in use.

One of the big problems people have with metal braces is how it looks. Again, traditional braces do a great job of repositioning your teeth and jaw. But that metal looks odd. When you’re an adult, it can look worse because metal braces are associated with being a teenager.

By calling our Fairfax, VA dental office today, you can schedule an appointment for discreet orthodontics with Invisalign. They’re made from clear plastic. When worn, they’re very hard to notice. When it comes to Invisalign vs. braces, Invisalign is clearly harder to see.

– There are no metal brackets or wires to hurt the inside of your mouth.

A common complaint from people who wear metal braces is how they catch on the inside of their mouths. The metal brackets can hurt your lips or inside of your cheeks. You can get small cuts repeatedly that leave behind scars you can feel.

That’s why you need to call Dr. Ki today and start with Invisalign clear aligners. Being made from comfortable plastic, there’s nothing to catch on. Dr. Ki has been working with Invisalign for many years, giving her practical experience in using this orthodontic treatment effectively and safely.

– Most people are done with Invisalign in about a year.

Traditional braces normally take around 2-3 years to finish repositioning your teeth and jaw. If you go with this orthodontic treatment, you’ll need to visit our Fairfax, VA dental office repeatedly over that time. Otherwise, the braces won’t do their job. Invisalign clear aligners are a modern orthodontic treatment. They can be done in 6-12 months, not years.

Call our Fairfax, VA dental office today for your first appointment to get Invisalign. Given her years of training and experience, Dr. Ki is uniquely suited to help you get a straight, aligned smile with Invisalign clear aligners.

– The Invisalign results are normally the same as with braces.

There are a few rare cases when traditional braces are better. Those are for people who need major work done. But for the majority of people in Virginia, Invisalign clear aligners will provide comparable results as braces. That’s because Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment just like traditional braces — it’s just more modern and has more advantages.

Call us TODAY at 703-552-2530 or use our online form to schedule your first appointment for Invisalign clear aligners. As a dentist certified to use Invisalign, Dr. Ki has training other area dentists might not have. With her help, your smile can soon look straight and aligned like it should.
