Straighter Teeth with Invisalign in Rockville, MD

Many adults and older teenagers can be reluctant to sign up for traditional metallic braces, choosing to delay or put off treatment in order to avoid the social stigma and potential embarrassment. That's where Invisalign clear aligner trays come in. Invisalign delivers the same results as traditional braces, without the wires and brackets. Made of high quality plastic, the trays are practically invisible, and less invasive than braces.

Invisalign Offers Convenience and Better Control Over Oral Hygiene

Dr. H. David Allick, a family dentist at Rockville, MD based White Flint Dental Associates, recommends Invisalign for qualified patients in need of a subtler, and more discreet method to align and straighten crooked and misaligned teeth. The trays are custom made for each person, and each tray is worn for a period of approximately two weeks, after which it is replaced by the next tray in the series. Over the course of approximately 15 months, the teeth gradually shift into the desired alignment. Invisalign trays can be removed for up to two hours each day, allowing for better comfort while eating (no more giving up favorite foods for braces!), and allow for daily brushing and flossing. Because the trays are made out of clear plastic, they are virtually invisible to the naked eye, making them a great option for people who might otherwise skip necessary orthodontic treatment.
