Invisible braces provide a discreet, convenient option for teen and adult patients with mild to moderate orthodontic concerns. Dr. Datta Malyavantham is a Northern Virginia Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen® provider, offering treatment with clear aligners for a wide range of dental health and cosmetic concerns:
- Crooked teeth
- Cross bite
- Over bite
- Under bite
- Gaps between teeth
Dr. Datta can straighten your smile and improve your dental health with Invisalign without impacting your appearance or quality of life- no one has to know you are wearing braces. The clear aligners are comfortable, removable and will gently reposition your teeth in about 12-15 months. Invisalign is often the perfect solution for teens and adults who do not want the hassles and discomfort of traditional metal braces, or adults experiencing shifting teeth after previous orthodontic treatment.
How Does Invisalign® Work?
About the Invisalign Process
Treatment planning begins with digital dental impressions of your mouth. These high resolution images will be used with CAD/CAM technology to carefully plan treatment and design your custom aligners for repositioning your teeth. The number of aligners needed will be determined by your specific goals.
You will change aligners according to your personal treatment plan, but generally every two weeks. The aligners are to be worn about 22 hours per day, leaving plenty of time remove them so you can enjoy the foods you love and maintain good oral hygiene with thorough brushing and flossing.
With Invisalign, there are no dietary restrictions and the risk of tooth decay is significantly decreased. Patients appreciate the flexibility and comfort of the clear aligners, which are made of a smooth, BPA-free material and easily placed and removed.
When it comes to wearing braces, most teens feel embarrassed by traditional metal braces. The effect on their self confidence takes away from the smile they are trying to achieve.
Invisalign Teen® offers teens a solution when mild to moderate orthodontia is needed for long term dental health with clear, comfortable braces.
Invisalign Teen can give your teen a smile they will feel good about while improving their oral health. Ridgetop Dental offers a family friendly environment that welcomes teens and provides patient focused care for their smile. Our staff will work with your teen to educate them on how to care for their teeth and gums to maintain a healthy smile during and after Invisalign treatment.
Am I a good candidate for Invisalign?
Mostly anyone can qualify for Invisalign clear aligners. Invisalign is best used for patients with mild to moderate misalignment issues. Your dentist will evaluate your malocclusion and recommend the appropriate treatment options. Younger patients have a greater success rate with Invisalign because their teeth are still growing and shift more easily.
How fast does Invisalign work?
If you follow all instructions, brush at least twice a day, use mouthwash and floss, you may start seeing results within the first month. Generally, Invisalign treatment can be completed in about twelve to fifteen months. Although, this will heavily depend on how crooked and misaligned your teeth are, as well as other treatment factors.
Are invisible braces covered by insurance?
Invisible braces are typically not covered by insurance. Ridgetop Dental will help you with any billing and paperwork to maximize your dental insurance benefits. We also offer third-party dental financing and payment plans for patients concerned about the cost of Invisalign treatment.
