Everyone wants perfectly aligned, beautiful teeth, but few of us are born with them. Whether you never wore braces when you were younger or your teeth have slipped back out of alignment over the years, you are most likely considering your options for alignment. Fortunately, thanks to Invisalign®, you can opt for clear braces instead of clunky metal brackets that will look and feel awkward while they cut the insides of your cheeks and cause you pain every time you have them tightened. Fortunately for you, Invisalign is available at L’Enfant Plaza Dental Arts in Washington, DC.
With Invisalign, you will be fitted for a custom set of progressive dental aligners. You will wear each set of aligners for about two weeks before you move on to the next, and you will wear them at all times of the day and night, ideally only taking them out for a maximum of two hours per day to brush and floss and to eat and drink beverages other than water. The process is more comfortable than wearing braces and much better for your teeth as well.
When considering the benefits of Invisalign, you should know that it usually takes less time to align your teeth with Invisalign than with braces. Also, most people will not be able to tell that you are wearing your clear braces because they are transparent and fit perfectly against your teeth. Because you do not have to have them tightened or adjusted, Invisalign aligners are also more comfortable than traditional braces. Plus, they do not run the risk of damaging your teeth because you can take them off whenever you need to brush or floss.
When you visit us at L’Enfant Plaza Dental Arts in Washington, DC for Invisalign aligners, we will take an impression of your teeth and then have your aligners made for you. When your aligners arrive, we will have you come in to ensure that they fit well, and you can begin the process. Most patients do not have to come in every time they change their aligners, which is another benefit for a lot of people, as they have busy schedules and cannot make time to visit the dentist every couple of weeks.
