Since everyone has different needs, the length of time it takes to correct misalignment issues with Invisalign varies from person. As an adult, it will depend on the severity of your problem, but usually takes about a year. Young adults and teens usually take longer - about the same time as traditional braces.invisalign treatment | vienna va dentist

The only way we can give you an accurate idea of your treatment time is by evaluating your case. First, Dr. Sanati and Dr. Shahram need to assess your situation to see if you are a good candidate for Invisalign treatment.

Once we’ve determined that Invisalign is right for you, we will take pictures, x-rays, and precise impressions of your teeth. These will be used to create a virtual 3-D image, which we will use develop a customized treatment plan, including the future movement of your teeth. At this point we will be able to give you a good idea of the length of treatment.

You will be fully informed about your treatment because we will show you a virtual representation of the movement of your teeth at each stage of treatment. One of the great things about Invisalign is that you will also be able to actually see the difference as you progress through treatment.

At Tysons Dentistry, we have used Invisalign to help a number of patients who have experienced some degree of relapse after treatment with traditional braces.  This most frequently occurs with older patients who had braces as a child. invisalign and orthodontics | vienna va dentist

It is natural for teeth to move and shift slightly. In fact, this movement is happening all the time, and can cause teeth to move out of their proper alignment years after orthodontic treatment.

Correcting crooked teeth at any age is important because it can affect your dental bite, which can lead to a variety of other problems including teeth grinding and clenching. Teeth that are overcrowded can also make oral hygiene difficult, potentially leading to cavities and even gum disease.

The Power Of Invisalign

Invisalign clear braces allow us to discreetly and effectively correct these alignment issues, so you don’t have to worry about another round of treatment with wire and bracket braces. The amount of time it will take to return your teeth is different for each person. Once Dr. Sanati and Dr. Shahram have had a chance to review your case, we can give you a good idea of how long treatment will take.

If you’ve experienced a relapse after traditional braces, please don’t hesitate to give us a call. We will be happy to arrange a convenient consultation to discuss your options.

Misaligned teeth are not just unattractive, but they really need to be corrected because they can also lead to other oral health problems. The good news is that you no longer have to worry about putting up with cumbersome metal and wire braces – Invisalign is an efficient orthodontic treatment that can transform your smile comfortably, and with amazing results.

Invisalign clear braces have been used by millions of people to straighten their misaligned teeth and restore their appearance. One of the reasons Invisalign clear aligners are so popular is that they are comfortable and easy to use.invisalign | vienna va dentist

Since the aligners are made of a smooth plastic material, you don’t have to worry about the discomfort and irritation of sensitive mouth tissue that often occurs with traditional metal braces.

Why Invisalign Is Popular At Our Vienna Office

The two things that really make Invisalign so popular are that the aligners are clear, and virtually invisible. And you don’t have to worry about oral hygiene or food getting stuck in brackets and wires because Invisalign clear braces are removable for brushing, flossing, and eating.

If you want to finally fix your crooked teeth, Invisalign is a great solution. If you’d like to learn more about treatment with Invisalign clear braces, please give our Vienna dental office a call.

First, your certified Invisalign provider will map out a plan for straightening your teeth that is specific to your needs. Based on this plan, a series of custom-made Invisalign aligners will be created for you that will gradually move your teeth into the proper position.

Who Is Invisalign For

Invisalign offers treatment plans for both adults and teens, and Dr. Sanati and Dr. Shahram can determine which is appropriate for you. Both types of treatment offer the advantage of providing discreet treatment, since the aligners are virtually invisible.

Before you make the decision to choose Invisalign, you should get as much information about treatment as possible so that you feel confident about the process and know what to expect.
