Vajdi Dental offers the revolutionary Invisalign® system for our patients who would like to straighten their teeth without the bulky appearance and hassle of traditional metal braces.
By cycling through a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign can help to fix misalignments, overlaps, and gaps to help you achieve the smile you always wanted. This revolutionary system is truly the closest thing to "invisible" braces.
Benefits: Compared to traditional metal braces, no one may be able to tell you are wearing Invisalign except you and Dr. Vajdi. Since the aligners are custom-made and composed of a clear, medical-grade plastic, there is no risk of cutting your lips, tongue, or cheeks like you would with the metal brackets and wires of regular braces. Invisalign aligners are also removable, so you can take them out to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
The Process: To start your Invisalign treatment, Dr. Vajdi will take an impression of your teeth at our office. This will be sent to Invisalign so that they can create your custom set of aligners. Typically, each patient receives between 18 and 30 aligners for a full treatment program. While these aligners can be removed when needed, they should be worn at all times.
About every two weeks, you will switch aligners. Each aligner in the series gradually shifts your teeth into position, little by little. Average treatment time is nine to fifteen months - about the same amount of time it takes to straighten teeth with traditional braces, if not a little quicker. You will visit our Washington D.C. dental office regularly during your Invisalign orthodontic treatment to ensure that your teeth are realigning according to plan.
During your initial consultation with Dr. Vajdi, he will examine your teeth and determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign. If you are interested in the Invisalign system and how it can comfortably and discreetly straighten your teeth, please contact us today.
