Invisalign®: Everything You Need to Know

Invisalign® treatment is an alternative to braces designed to fix malocclusion issues like overcrowding, gaps in the teeth, overbites, and more. It’s so popular with patients because not only are the results more predictable than with traditional braces, but the straightening process is more comfortable, too. Those who opt for Invisalign® also are able to enjoy a wider variety of foods without worrying about affecting their treatment.

What does Invisalign® treat?

Invisalign® works to treat the following issues:

Crowding

Symptoms: biting lips, cheeks, or tongue; lisping; speech changes; chipping or wearing of teeth; food traps; bad breath; difficulty flossing; jaw pain; headaches

Gapped Teeth

Symptoms: biting lips, cheeks, or tongue; lisping; speech changes; food traps; bad breath

Overbite

How does Invisalign® treatment work?

The treatment process can be broken down into 3 easy steps:

Step 1. Treatment

We will complete a scan or impression. With this scan, together with the Invisalign team, we’ll craft a complete digital treatment plan, mapping out your best smile yet from beginning to end.​

Step 2. Aligners

Invisalign® clear aligners are designed to transform your smile up to 2x faster and are made with unique advances, such as SmartTrack material. Each aligner throughout your treatment gradually and predictably moves your teeth as you continue to live your life the way you want.​

Step 3. Transformation

Throughout your treatment, you’ll see your smile transform, gradually revealing the person you’ve always imagined yourself to be. With the help of Invisalign clear aligners and Ellicott Mills Dental, you’ll discover how a series of small, expertly designed shifts can shape a whole new future.

Whether you’re looking to schedule a routine cleaning or to rejuvenate your smile with dental implants, the Ellicott Mills Dental staff is excited to create the perfect smile for you. Fill out our appointment request form or give us a call at 410-431-1768.
