Invisalign® for Adults

A woman smiling after getting Invisalign at Crafton Dental in Columbia, MDOrthodontia can be highly important for improving the look and function of your teeth. Traditionally, this would have only been done with the use of metal brackets and wires. Today, patients have options when it comes to their orthodontic work. Invisalign® is one option for improving the positioning of your most visible teeth. Our staff at Crafton Dental can review your current orthodontic needs and discuss Invisalign® treatment with you, together we can determine if it is an option that will work for you.

What is Invisalign®?


Invisalign® is different from braces, there are no brackets or wires. Invisalign® is a clear plastic device that is designed to fit over your teeth tightly. It uses pressure to shift your teeth into position slowly. The Invisalign® process is not just a singular device, but a series of multiple devices. The patient wears the first one in the series and then switches to the next about every two weeks. Patients love this system because it is a discreet way of correcting your teeth positioning that is also removable when needed.

The benefits of Invisalign® are tremendous, our patients ask for them because:
•  They are discreet: Traditional braces are highly noticeable. Commonly associated with the awkwardness of being a teenager, a professional adult may not want to share this particular style. You can have your smile improved without everyone being part of your treatment process.
•  They are removable: You have important moments in your life, important events, dinners, and celebrations. You may not want brace face to be part of your pictures, we understand. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign® is removable. Your treatment will require that you wear your Invisalign® device most of the time, but for those small special occasions, it is ok to remove your device.
•  Fewer office visits: Adults are busy, we understand! Regular office visits are difficult for many adult schedules. With traditional braces, patients need to be seen for frequent tightening appointments. Invisalign® provides the patient with the entire series of devices at the same time, so the patient can switch to the next one on their own, though we will want to occasionally review progress and may need to make adjustments.
•  Faster Results: On average, the Invisalign® system delivers results faster than traditional braces. Patients often reach their goals in less than two years.

Other Orthodontic Options


Ask our office about the full range of orthodontic options. Invisalign® are clear aligners, and though it can be a great option for many patients, it may not be the best option for everyone. Besides the options discussed, there are ceramic brackets, lingual braces, invisible wires, self-ligating wires and more; there are so many options available today. We can review and discuss the differences and help you decide the best option for your specific needs.

Invisalign® Versus Traditional Options


Invisalign® are not necessarily right for every patient. Invisalign® is best for patients seeking alignment of only their most visible teeth. Patients who require more intense work to correct their malocclusion will want the more direct guidance of their orthodontist. Invisalign® is ideal for closing gaps and straightening your smile.
