Crooked and misaligned teeth can easily ruin your smile. As part of cosmetic dental treatments, you now have an excellent alternative to straighten your teeth without the use of clunky and embarrassing metal braces. Farhan Qureshi, DDS offers Invisalign as an effective clear and wire-free teeth-straightening solution for teens and adults in Alexandria and the surrounding communities.
Invisalign works by slowly transitioning your teeth into proper alignment over the course of six months to a year using a series of clear custom trays that you wear on your teeth. Dr. Qureshi will start by examining your teeth to make sure you are a candidate for Invisalign. Next, we will begin treatment by having your initial aligners fabricated. Over time, the Invisalign trays gently move your teeth into proper position. Patients can expect to receive new aligner trays every two weeks until your ideal smile is achieved.
Invisible/Clear Braces for Adults
It is never too late to have a straighter, more confident smile. Invisalign addresses a wide variety of cases, including crowding, spacing, cross-bite, overbite and underbite. There are several benefits of Invisalign that have helped make it a more popular solution for patients than traditional braces:
- Less Visible: True to its name, Invisalign is virtually invisible to others. Adults can remain confident at work or in social settings with this clear and discreet orthodontic system.
- More Convenient: With Invisalign braces you can enjoy healthier, cleaner teeth with less maintenance than traditional braces. Since the aligners are removable, oral hygiene like brushing and flossing is much easier and you can quickly remove them for eating as well.
- Faster Treatment Time: With Invisalign you benefit from fewer, shorter appointments in our office because there are no adjustments needed. For most patients, the overall treatment time is also reduced compared to that of traditional metal braces.
- More Comfortable: The smooth texture of Invisalign aligners prevents irritation to your lips, cheeks, and gums. Invisalign trays are custom made to for optimal comfort.
