Invisalign 101: What to Expect During Treatment

November 29, 2020
Posted By: Dr. Fairfax & Associates Family Dentistry

If crooked teeth are marring your smile, and you don't like the idea of wearing braces, you're not alone! Most adults don't feel comfortable meeting a new client or participating in a meeting with metal brackets and wires on their teeth.

That's why Invisalign in Fairfax offers efficiency, comfort, and discretion. So you don't have to change your diet, lifestyle, or schedule during your treatment while achieving the straighter, more beautiful smile you want.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Instead of uncomfortable braces, Invisalign uses plastic aligners with a snug fit to move your teeth into alignment gently. The aligners are smooth and easy to wear throughout the day, and it is recommended that you wear them for at least 22 hours each day. Since they are clear, they're not noticeable, and no one will ever realize that you're straightening your teeth.

Invisible braces come in a series of aligners created based on the treatment plan your dentist makes. You'll wear one set of aligners for two to three weeks and then move on to the next, which can easily be done at home. Then you'll check in periodically with your dentist to ensure that your treatment is progressing on time. It's a fairly easy and straightforward process when you focus on compliance. 

Getting Started With Invisible Braces in Fairfax, VA

If you're considering straightening your teeth with Invisalign, the first step is to meet with certified Invisalign provider, Dr. Cerina Fairfax. She will determine if Invisalign is right for your needs and create your treatment plan if you move forward with invisible braces. If not, she is happy to discuss alternative treatment options that will help you meet your goals.
