Consider Invisalign® braces to get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted – without metal brackets. A consultation with Dr. Tisseront can determine if Invisalign® braces are right for you.
WHAT IS INVISALIGN?
Invisalign® braces use a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. So you can smile more during treatment as well as after.
Invisalign® is made using 3D computer imaging technology. Our Invisalign® orthodontist, Dr. Tisseront uses this 3D imaging to prescribe a treatment plan just for you!
WHY WOULD I WANT INVISALIGN® BRACES?
Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment.
And no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your Invisalign ® orthodontist’s office getting adjustments.
Invisalign® also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
HOW DOES INVISALIGN® WORK?
You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to the final position your doctor has prescribed. You’ll visit your Invisalign® orthodontist at our practice in Reston, VA about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time with Invisalign® braces typically lasts nine to 15 months, and the number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both numbers will vary from case to case depending on the plan prescribed by your Invisalign® orthodontist.
