Many of our patients want to straighten their teeth, but they don’t want the hassle of wearing metal wires and brackets. At Cardinal Park Family Dental Care, we are proud to offer patients in Leesburg and throughout Loudoun County. Invisalign clear braces for a comfortable, convenient, and nearly invisible way to straighten their teeth. Our cosmetic dentists are experienced in treating patients with the Invisalign system. Visit our smile gallery to view some of the results achieved from our patients.
The Invisalign system uses a series of clear plastic aligners, also referred to as clear braces, which fit snugly over the teeth like a mouth guard. Each patient receives a series of aligners, custom-made by the Invisalign company, which are designed to gradually move the teeth into their proper position. The aligners are worn at all times, but, unlike traditional braces, they may be removed to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
You will first visit our practice in Leesburg, near Loudoun County, for a consultation to find out whether clear braces are the right choice for you. If you are a good candidate for Invisalign, you will return to our office so that we can make impressions of your mouth. We will send the impressions to Invisalign so that your aligners can be fabricated. You will return to our practice in Loudoun County once your aligners are ready so that we can give you detailed instructions on how to use the system.
You will wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, discard them, and replace them with the next set in the series. Over time, your teeth will gradually move into position until they are aligned. For most people, treatment is completed in six months to a year. During your treatment, you will return to our practice periodically so that we can ensure that your treatment is on track.
There are many benefits to choosing Invisalign over traditional metal braces. For starters, Invisalign is nearly invisible. Unless someone is close to your face, they won’t be able to notice you have clear braces unless you tell them. Another benefit is that they are removable. This means you can eat whatever you want and brush and floss at ease without worrying about breaking your braces or staining your teeth. It is also more painless than traditional braces. Instead of getting your braces tightened frequently, you will change your aligners about every 2 weeks which will give you a more gradual change, therefore resulting in less pain. It’s also been found that it works faster than metal braces. Depending on your condition, your perfect smile can be achieved in as little as 6 months! Be sure to follow our aftercare instructions to properly care for your aligners and teeth during treatment.
