Invisalign for Adult Treatment


Invisalign is a great option for adults who want to improve their smile. It’s perfect for those who don’t want to put their life on pause to get the smile of their dreams.

Invisalign Teen


Lots of teens don’t love the idea of having braces. We get it. That’s why we offer Invisalign® Teen, a clear alternative to brackets and wires, specifically developed to meet teens’ unique orthodontic needs.  Invisalign’s custom fitted aligners feature a slim and comfortable design, are virtually invisible and can be removed for 1-2 hours a day without impacting results. That means less orthodontic related sports emergencies, more confidence in front of the camera and no missed practice time for that upcoming audition.

Invisalign First for our Youngest Patients


With certain orthodontic issues we recommend children come in for early interceptive treatment before the permanent teeth are all in. This lets us guide teeth and jaw development and avoid more extensive treatment later. At Let’s Smile Dental, we’re a leader in early interceptive treatment with Invisalign. Using Invisalign® First, a system of cutting-edge, clear aligners designed for growing patients, Dr. Ghatri, Dr. Kang and Dr. Manny can offer Invisalign to young patients in the Virginia metro area with fantastic results, quickly and comfortably.

The benefits speak for themselves:

Faster treatment

With frequent aligner changes, you’re on your way to the smile you want even faster.

Effective

With Invisalign we can treat a wide range of conditions, including crossbites, crowding, open bites, spacing, overbites, and underbites.

Virtually invisible

Most people won’t even know you’re going through treatment, because Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible!

Comfortable

Invisalign clear aligner trays are not only smooth and comfortable to wear, but they’re also removable. That means you can continue doing all the things you normally would, from brushing and flossing to eating whatever you like.

Convenient

Invisalign treatment is ideal for your busy schedule. Coupled with remote monitoring, you’ll only have to visit us in the office periodically. The rest of the time we’ll monitor your treatment virtually!

Confidence boosting

Without brackets and wires you can show off your smile transformation along the way!

The Invisalign Treatment Process

At your initial consultation, we will discuss your orthodontic needs and evaluate whether Invisalign treatment is right for you.

We will use an iTero® digital scanning system to create fast, precise 3D digital images of your teeth. Then we will map out a precise treatment plan, including the exact movements of your teeth and how long your treatment will be. You’ll even get to see how your teeth will move and preview your new smile!

Your custom-made aligners will be made of Invisalign’s proprietary SmartTrack® material. They’re virtually invisible, so most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them. Wear your Invisalign clear aligners 20 to 22 hours a day for the best results. Only take them out to eat, brush, and floss.

As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth will gently and gradually shift into place. We will track your progress using remote treatment monitoring, scheduling checkups sparingly.

When your treatment is complete, we’ll provide you with a retainer that will help you keep your beautiful smile looking great and your bite healthy.

What Is Invisalign?

If you or a loved one has considered getting braces, chances are you've heard of Invisalign. A popular alternative to metal braces, the Invisalign clear aligners are braces that are custom-made for the patient. Not only do these braces fit comfortably over the teeth, but they are practically invisible. This means very few people will be able to tell that a patient with an Invisalign has braces. If you want to straighten your smile, here is some more information about these aligners.

How Does Invisalign Work?
The aligners work by shifting the teeth gradually to the right position. Invisalign aligners can move the teeth vertically and horizontally. In fact, when necessary, the aligners can rotate the teeth to the right position. These aligners have been engineered to exert the optimal amount of force at the ideal time and in the correct place. In most cases, you will change your set of aligners every single week. The doctor will plan out the custom treatment for you after the initial consultation, which involves taking 3D digital images of your teeth and possibly doing a physical impression.

Taking Care Of Invisalign Aligners
Most people are pleased to learn that taking care of the aligners is fairly simple. The only change that you need to make to your bedtime routine is cleaning the aligners every night. You can use a soft toothbrush and lukewarm water to clean your aligners every night. Another option that you have is buying an Invisalign cleaning kit. Other than cleaning your aligners every night, there is nothing else you need to do.

Maintain Oral Hygiene
Many people struggle to maintain their oral hygiene when wearing metal braces. However, if you choose to get this type of aligner, you will find it far easier to maintain your oral hygiene. All you need to do is remove the aligners and you will be able to floss and brush your teeth as normal.

Day-To-Day Life
Invisalign aligners won't have a major impact on your day-to-day life. As you probably know, wearing metal braces comes with many food restrictions, because crunchy and sticky foods can get stuck in the wires and brackets. However, since these aligners don't have brackets or wires, there are very few food restrictions. In fact, you should remove them before eating. Therefore, you don't need to give up your favorite foods for a few years to achieve a perfect smile.

Playing contact sports is still possible with Invisalign. Since there are no sharp brackets, you won't have to be concerned about injuring your gums. Also, you can remove the aligners to put on a mouthguard, if necessary.

Invisalign Vs. Braces

Invisalign treatment is not the same as braces or other types of orthodontic devices. When it comes to considering “Invisalign vs Braces,” it’s important to understand one is not necessarily better than the other. There are a lot of differences between the two, yet they both serve similar functions. Orthodontists will typically suggest one of these two methods but for different reasons. Which one is right for you? Do you need Invisalign or braces? Speaking to an orthodontist can help you decide.

Invisalign And How It Works
Invisalign is a treatment option for malocclusions or bad bites. Custom, clear, plastic trays go over your teeth. These trays will gently move your teeth into the desired configuration a little at a time. After a brief time, a new set of aligners will go in to continue the process. The trays are clear and can go undetected. It’s also possible to remove them so you can eat and tend to your dental hygiene without encumbrance.

How Invisalign Differs From Braces
You can not remove braces, and you must exercise care when eating or cleaning your teeth. Many people don’t like braces because of the metal and wires. They would rather people not focus on the braces when in public. However, braces are sometimes necessary. This is especially true for younger people. There are also multiple options for braces to make them less visible, such as clear braces, which are not the same as Invisalign.

Choosing Between Invisalign Or Braces
Many adults choose Invisalign because the aligners are less visible. This can become important for their day-to-day life and activities. Braces are ideal for people with severe or complex bite issues. Your own temperament may help your decision as well. Invisalign puts you more in control of your treatment, so it requires some discipline on your part. By contrast, low maintenance braces remain on your teeth and do their work without you needing to do much else.

The Price Of Invisalign Vs. Braces
The price of any orthodontic treatment will depend a lot on your particular bite problem. For many people, the cost of Invisalign vs braces is often comparable. The convenient and custom nature of Invisalign can sometimes add to the cost. It’s not easy to say which will cost more in the end. It’s important to see your orthodontist for an x-ray and consultation first. From there, you can discuss your options.

What Can I Expect With Invisalign?

If you have been dreaming about having a straight smile that you can be proud of, but don't want the hassles of traditional braces, the Invisalign is the perfect solution. No longer do you have to put up with the inconveniences of traditional braces, and, best of all, they are hardly detectable when you wear them. Simply take Invisalign aligners out to eat and brush and leave them in throughout the day and watch the incredible results happen over time.

Comfort And Convenience
One of the biggest drawbacks associated with traditional braces is the lack of comfort. When you choose to correct your smile with these invisible aligners, you don't have to worry about discomfort. The Invisalign aligners are comfortable to wear all day and don't require tightening, which is one of the major factors associated with discomfort with traditional braces. They are simply switched out over time as your teeth move into the proper position. Also, changing and removing your Invisalign aligner retainer is quick, easy and pain-free. It is the perfect solution for correcting your smile without interfering with everyday life.

Changing Aligners
The aligners will be changed weekly and you should schedule an oral exam with your dental care provider every six weeks to check your progress. Each person is different and there is no specific treatment time frame, so ask your dental care provider for more information about the treatment process to get a better idea of how long it will take. You may require a retainer after completing your treatment to help keep your teeth in place and prevent them from moving.

Incredible Results
You won't believe how quickly and effectively the Invisalign system works. They are able to correct the issues you have without requiring a great deal of maintenance or attention. Simply put them in and take them out and get incredible results that make you want to smile.

Maintaining Your Smile With Vivera Retainers
After you’ve invested the time to align your teeth, you may wonder how to go about choosing a specific type of retainer to continue to keep them straight. You likely don’t want any more dental treatments than you have to after either braces or Invisalign. Vivera makes clear retainers that can quickly stabilize your teeth so they’re unlikely to shift back, and they’re made to be as comfortable as possible to the wearer.

What Are Vivera Retainers?
Vivera retainers are types of Invisalign retainers, and they’re designed to set teeth in place using a clear, durable plastic device. They’re highly recommended if you’ve used Invisalign to straighten your teeth, but they can be used regardless of the treatment option you’ve chosen. During this final phase of completing your ideal smile, it’s extremely important to follow through with the retention phase.

What Are They Made Of?
Vivera retainers use the same type of technology that Invisalign uses to align teeth to their optimum position. It’s made of a specific type of thermoplastic that you won’t find anywhere else. The company uses 3-D digital imaging to ensure you get the best possible fit. These Invisalign retainers are also extremely durable, allowing them to sustain wear and handling.
