In the past, metal brackets and wires were your only teeth-straightening option. Today, innovations in dentistry allow you to discreetly and comfortably straighten up your smile. Our team can help you realign your smile with Invisalign aligner therapy. These clear, removable aligners are custom made to fit your unique dental arch and are practically undetectable. Call our dentist, Dr. Layth, and our talented team at 703-525-0157 today to schedule an appointment and find out if Invisalign is right for you!
During this initial consultation we take all the necessary Digital Low radiation X-rays, Intra-oral pictures, and intra-oral scan to be able to show you your smile and final teeth positioning simulation. We also do a full evaluation of your over-all oral health and the whole entire mouth-mind-body relation.
During this visit, we will go over the treatment plan we have put together specifically for you. This visit usually takes place a 7-10 after the initial consultation visit. After you’re informed about the process and have all your questions and concerns addressed, our front desk will help you determine what financial plan is right for you.
Invisalign Start Day:
This is the longest appointment you will have for the entire treatment course lasting approximately 90 minutes. After placing all the necessary attachments on your teeth, you’ll be well on your way to a straighter smile! After this visit, you come into our office every 4-6 weeks to get your new set of aligners, which is a lot less frequent than if you were going the traditional metal route.
Invisalign Clear Aligners FAQs
What do the aligner look like?
Because your aligners are made of clear plastic, they are nearly invisible to everyone—even you! This allows you to continue smiling with confidence throughout your treatment. Your aligners are also removable, making it easy for you to eat, brush, and floss like normal.
How much does Invisalign cost?
Our Invisalign pricing starts at $2600 and could vary depending on your specific smile. But don’t let money concerns get in between you and perfect teeth. At our office, we strive to make getting the dental care you deserve affordable. That’s why we offer both in-house and third-party financing plans. Visit our financial page to learn more.
How does Invisalign work?
As you change out your clear aligners, they will shift your teeth little by little till you reach your final aligners set where the final positioning is set.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
There are many benefits to Invisalign as opposed to traditional braces. Not only are they practically undetectable, but the plastic is much less abrasive than wires and brackets. There are also oral health benefits. You can remove your aligners to brush and floss like normal, which allows for a cleaner mouth. Plus, you won’t need any special tools like you need to scrub under traditional braces. And our favorite part is that there aren’t any diet restrictions! You can still enjoy all the foods you love while working toward the smile you love.
What’s the average Invisalign treatment time?
While traditional braces can take anywhere from 24-36 months, Invisalign takes about 9-15 months on average. Of course, this can vary in either direction depending on your smile.
