Invisalign Treatment in Annapolis, MD
Over the past two decades, Invisalign has certainly gained a lot of popularity for helping adults and teens straighten their smiles with aligners rather than traditional brackets and wires. Here in Annapolis, MD, our dentist Dr. David Handelsman believes that it is never too late to get the perfectly straight smile you want and that you shouldn’t have to wear uncomfortable or bulky braces to do it. Dr. Handelsman is a certified-preferred provider of Invisalign and here in downtown Annapolis, and can quickly determine if this nearly invisible orthodontic alternative is right for you or your older teen.
Chances are pretty good that you’ve heard about Invisalign before. Just as the name suggests, the treatment offers a nearly invisible approach to teeth straightening. Instead of traditional braces, which require bonding metal brackets to the front of your teeth, Invisalign offers a series of custom-made clear aligners that are removable and are worn over your teeth like whitening trays.
How Invisalign Works
Before you can get Invisalign, Dr. Handelsman will need to sit down with you and ensure that your treatment goals align with what Invisalign can offer you. From there, we will also check your teeth and gums to make sure your mouth is healthy enough for Invisalign and that the issues you want to address can be fixed with this treatment. If you are a good candidate then we will get to work mapping out your Invisalign treatment plan.
How Aligners Shift Teeth
Each aligner is custom-fitted just for you. The set of aligners that you receive from Dr. Handelsman and his team will be designed based on the treatment plan we mapped out on our computer during your consultation phase. When you wear your aligners they will apply the proper amount of gentle force and pressure to carefully and safely move teeth into their ideal position. As you swap out aligners every two weeks, you will begin to see some gradual and wonderful changes to the alignment of your smile.
Candidates for Invisalign
Are you ready to get Invisalign? We thought you might! If you are an older teen or adult, then this orthodontic treatment could be ideal for you. Of course, there are a few things that go into determining your candidacy. Invisalign can fix a myriad of dental problems, but it can’t tackle them all. If you are dealing with crooked teeth, crowding, spacing, or other alignment problems then this orthodontic system could be ideal. If you require more complex changes to your teeth or the alignment of your jaws, then Invisalign may not be the best choice. We can help determine your candidacy when you come into our office.
