Have you ever wished for a straighter, more attractive smile? Do you wish you could gain a straighter smile without metal brackets and wires? With Invisalign® in Washington, DC, you can! We welcome you to contact Liang Orthodontics today to learn more about Invisalign and to schedule an appointment with our orthodontists, Drs. Liang and Liang.
One of the most popular orthodontic options for patients who want a more discreet straightening treatment is Invisalign®. Invisalign relies on a series of custom-made, computer-generated, clear plastic aligners, rather than the metal brackets and wires of traditional braces. You will switch to a new set of aligners about every two weeks, and each set will make small changes to the alignment of your teeth, gradually guiding your teeth into their correction positions.
Invisalign is used to correct the same orthodontic problems that are treated with traditional braces, including:
- Crowded teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Gapped and spaced teeth
- Malocclusion (bad bites), including overbites, open bites, underbites, and crossbites
Invisalign is often a great choice for adults and teenagers, as it is a virtually invisible treatment and allows you to maintain a normal appearance throughout the entire treatment process. Additionally, the aligners used in this treatment are removable, allowing patients to eat, brush, and floss without complications.
You will need to meet with our orthodontists regularly to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
Because the aligners are made of clear plastic, they will need to be cleaned often. Dirty aligners can cause your teeth to appear grey or discolored.
