Using clear aligners for teeth straightening

Do you want straight teeth but are uneasy about the idea of having a “metal mouth?” Invisalign treatment is an alternative to traditional metal bracket-and-wire braces and provides patients who are considering orthodontia a new view of their options. Teeth straightening can be achieved in more than one way, thanks to continued advances in the field of orthodontia. Invisalign is a popular treatment choice for teenagers and adults looking to improve their smiles that doesn’t require coverage with metal appliances. Drs. Sina Reangber and Scott Koo of Lifetime Smiles in Haymarket and Gainesville, Virginia, can educate patients on the advantages of clear aligners for smile realignment.

What is Invisalign, and how does it work?

Invisalign treatment is a unique way for patients to reposition the teeth within the smile. With Invisalign, patients skip the brackets and wires and instead obtain clear aligner trays that are custom-fabricated just for them! The patient will receive an entire series of trays from the Invisalign laboratories. Each tray is worn for two weeks before progressing to the next one. They have their new smile completed by the time they reach the end of the series!
