Benefits of Invisalign in Germantown, MD

Metal braces can be unsightly and make you feel self-conscious and uncomfortable — especially if you spend a lot of your time interacting with clients or other professionals in your field. Plus, you run the risk of food getting caught in your braces without even knowing it!

Invisalign braces are clear and virtually invisible (hence the name Invisalign) — you can wear them day or night without anyone noticing, and you won’t run the risk of getting food caught in them. With Invisalign, you can feel comfortable and show off your smile throughout the alignment process.

Metal braces have wires and chunks of metal that can puncture, scratch, chafe and cut the insides of your mouth and gums. Ouch! Fortunately, Invisalign braces are smooth, seamless, and comfortable, and don’t have any sharp or rough edges. In addition, metal braces often scrape the enamel off of the surfaces of your teeth, and the cement used to attach braces can remove enamel and tooth minerals when they’re taken out. Clear braces like Invisalign do not cause these issues.

Braces can take up to five years to align your teeth — that’s a very long time! Most people who use Invisalign have straight teeth within a year to a year and a half, without having to deal with the appearance of traditional metal braces.

For ultimate camouflage, tray or aligner systems render a modern straightening method. Designed with sophisticated software and 3D digital models of your teeth, a series of clear plastic trays produce the straightening results. Medical-grade plastic without wires, metal, springs, or rubber bands gently moves your teeth into place. Gradual pressure on specific teeth with each aligner means less discomfort and shortened treatment times, in many cases. Your provider dispenses several sets of aligners at a time, allowing you to change to a new one at home every two weeks.

Removable trays can be set aside for short periods allowing normal eating and cleaning. Enjoying an apple without the intrusion of brackets and wires works well for many patients. And the smooth plastic surface offers a comfort level to the tongue and cheeks unequaled by other forms of straightening.

A system that can be taken out and set aside may be forgotten. Committing to consistent wear, at least 22 hours each day, helps ensure the success of your treatment. While clear aligners work extremely well for adults, a responsible teen can be a candidate too. And adults of every age have discovered the perks of straight teeth with aligners.

How Do Removable Dentures Work?

Full or partial dentures consist of a gum-colored base made of plastic resin, which fits over the remaining alveolar (bone) ridge that formerly held the teeth. The prosthetic teeth projecting from the base are designed to look and function just like your natural teeth. Dentures are held in place primarily by the suctioning effect of their close fit against the alveolar ridges — that’s why it’s so important that they are fitted properly. The upper denture also gets extra support from the large surface area of the roof of the mouth (palate), which generally makes it extremely stable.

At first, wearing dentures may require some getting used to in terms of talking and eating, as the dentures become “balanced” in the space formerly occupied by the teeth. But over time, the muscles, nerves, and ligaments of the mouth learn to work in new ways, which allows these functions to occur normally. Dentures also help support the facial skeleton and the soft tissues of the lips and cheeks, which can help create a more youthful appearance.

Invisalign® benefits:

  • Straighten your teeth in stealth mode
  • Allow you to eat the foods you like during treatment
  • Make cleaning and brushing easy
  • Close eye-catching gaps
  • Correct overlap & crowding issue

Invisalign For Everyone

While aligner treatment works for 90% of straightening cases, some tooth movements may not be possible. Or you may simply prefer the security of fixed braces. More choices than ever exist for many procedures in dentistry allowing customized care for your situation. Dr. Steve Ohcan help you discover the path to a straighter smile.

You may discuss adding whitening to your plan, removing years of yellow stain accumulation. In some cases, the beauty of porcelain lifts a straight smile to another level or may even offer an alternative to orthodontics. And you may be pleasantly surprised to find a flexible payment option or undiscovered insurance benefits that make treatment closer than you think. Contact us today to schedule an appointment for Invisalign.
