Enjoy a Straighter Smile With Clear Invisalign Braces

Invisalign braces are the preferred method for people to straighten their teeth without brackets and wires. Unlike conventional braces, Invisalign uses a series of clear alignment trays to reposition the teeth. The trays are:

  • Removable
  • Comfortable
  • Easy to care for
  • Clear

…And don’t restrict you from eating certain types of food!

To get started with Invisalign, all we need to do is take an impression of your teeth. This impression is used by Invisalign laboratories to create a series of trays that, when worn over a period of time, reposition your teeth into proper alignment. Simply wear your clear trays for two weeks, taking them out only during meals or to brush and floss. Change your trays out with the next set to continue your tooth movement.

With Invisalign there are fewer appointments, because no adjustments are necessary. Simply stop by our Alexandria dental office every 6 to 8 weeks for a quick check with Dr. Rahman and pick up your next few sets of alignment trays.

Clear Braces for Teens

Invisalign Teen is a great option for our younger patients who want to straighten their teeth the “invisible” way. This treatment is similar to traditional Invisalign, with complimentary aligner allowances should one become broken or lost (like when they are away at summer camp, or take their aligner out during lunch at school.)

Plus, your teen will have better oral hygiene and no risk of white circles on their teeth – often seen with poor oral hygiene when conventional braces are worn.
