The Maryland Center for Complete Dentistry, in the Hunt Valley, MD area, offers Invisalign®, the number one patient requested clear braces system in the United States for crooked teeth. Invisalign® is clear braces worn for 8 to 14 months to straighten teeth. Invisalign® uses a unique, ultra-thin, hard-soft plastic material. The aligners are custom made for the patient using impressions of the teeth. A series of aligners is made for the patient, the total number of aligners dependent on the desired results. Each set of aligners is worn for one or two weeks before moving on to the next set. Throughout treatment, Dr. Jonathan Silverman will monitor your progress.
Benefits of Invisalign®
Discreet treatment – Invisalign® is clear, virtually invisible and unnoticeable to anyone else. Metal braces are very noticeable and unsightly. Oftentimes, food gets caught in the metal braces causing embarrassing situations especially for adults. With Invisalign®, no one will even know you are wearing braces.
No dietary restrictions – If you have to wear metal braces, there is a long list of foods you should avoid eating including food that is hard, chewy or crunchy. You are very limited on your food choices! One of the greatest benefits of Invisalign® is you can remove them to eat.
Easy removal for cleaning and routine dental care – You can remove Invisalign® to brush your teeth and floss as you normally would. With braces, once they go on, they remain in place for the length of the treatment which can last up to 5 years. Being able to remove them to brush your teeth also eliminates the risk of tooth enamel staining from permanently attached metal brackets.
Comfortable – Metal braces are comprised of brackets that are bonded to your teeth then those brackets are connected with a thin metal wire which can often cause discomfort. These parts protrude from the teeth and can puncture or scratch the inside of your mouth. Invisalign® aligners are made from a mold of your mouth and teeth and therefore sit comfortably against your teeth.

How Does Invisalign® Work?
Your treatment will begin with taking digital impressions to create high resolution, 3-D images of your teeth at our Hunt Valley, MD dentist office. These will be used to fabricate your invisible braces in a local Invisalign® lab from high quality hard-soft clear plastic. With these 3-D images, you can also see each step of the treatment plan, tracking your teeth’s movements with each set of aligners. The number of aligners and length of your Invisalign® treatment will depend on the problem(s) being addressed and desired result.
You will change aligners according to your personal treatment plan, but generally every two weeks. The aligners are to be worn about 22 hours per day, leaving plenty of time remove them so you can enjoy the foods you love and maintain good oral hygiene with thorough brushing and flossing. Cleaning your teeth properly is imperative to avoiding gum disease that may lead to missing teeth or bone loss.
