For Invisalign, Ashburn Residents Turn to Dr. Sabharwal
Traditional braces use metal brackets and wires to move teeth into their ideal position. But Invisalign is different. Instead of using brackets and wires, it uses a series of specifically designed trays. Every one of these clear plastic trays serves a distinct purpose in your overall treatment.
Dr. S. works closely with the regional Invisalign lab to fabricate aligners that are designed to achieve the aesthetically pleasing results you desire. At your initial consultation, we’ll examine your teeth and gums, as well as take photos, x-rays and impressions of your teeth and mouth. From these, Invisalign will create a 3D representation of your teeth that will serve as the basis for deciding how your treatment should progress. In addition, Dr. S. will be able to show you how your orthodontic treatment will lead to a straighter smile. For many patients, this is reassuring to see before they even begin wearing Invisalign clear braces.
Invisalign arranges your trays in a sequential series of sets. As your orthodontic care proceeds, you’ll wear each set of trays for about two weeks before moving on to the next set in your treatment kit. Advancing from one tray to another helps realign your teeth and revitalize your smile. Although treatment times vary depending on each case, most patients complete the process in 12 to 24 months.
Other Invisalign Benefits
In addition to alignment trays being clear, they’re also removable. As a result, you can easily remove them for meals, brushing, and flossing. With traditional braces, taking care of your teeth can be difficult and certain foods are off limits because they get caught in your braces or damage them. But with Invisalign, you can enjoy all your favorite foods and follow the same brushing and flossing routine you always have.
If you would like to know whether or not Invisalign clear braces are the right treatment choice for you, your Ashburn dentist Dr. Sabharwal would be happy to help you answer that question during an Invisalign consultation. Give us a call with your questions or to schedule a visit with us.
