If your teeth are crooked or crowded or if you have a bad bite, you may be hesitant about wearing metal braces to straighten your smile. Luckily, there is another option available. Ask Dr. Thomas Dowling about Invisalign® in Olney, Maryland. Invisalign uses clear, unobtrusive aligners to straighten your teeth.
Our orthodontist will have a consultation with you to determine your needs and goals. If Invisalign is right for you, digital images will be taken of your teeth so that your treatment plan can be formed. Individualized Invisalign aligners will be made to straighten your teeth. Wear your Invisalign aligners for 20 to 22 hours every day, taking them out to eat and to brush and floss. Every week or two, our orthodontist will provide you with your next set of aligners.
Invisalign aligners are removable, so you can brush and floss your teeth as normal. Cleaning your aligners is also simple. All you have to do is brush and rinse them in lukewarm water.
With Invisalign, you can continue to eat the foods you love with no difficulty. Simply remove your aligners when you eat and put them back in place when you are done.
We invite you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Thomas Dowling to find out if Invisalign is right for you. Contact Thomas Dowling, DDS at 301-774-1888 today. We are excited to serve you and your smile!
