Are you dreaming about a lovely straight smile, but you don’t want to wear conventional metal braces? Invisalign treatment could prove the perfect solution. Invisalign treatment effectively repositions your teeth through the use of clear and removable teeth aligners. There are no attachments needed.

Invisalign clear aligners are an excellent choice to provide you with a dazzling smile. Dr. Woo Young Chang at CK Dental & Associates in Washington, D.C. offers Invisalign aligners as a convenient treatment choice over metal braces.

Why choose Invisalign treatment?

If you suffer from crooked teeth, then your self-confidence might take a hit. You could find yourself hiding your smile because you feel self-conscious and embarrassed about your teeth. The thought of wearing metal braces might also cause embarrassment, especially if you are an adult with a career who doesn’t want to look like a teenager.

Dr. Chang offers Invisalign aligners in Washington, D.C. as a popular choice over metal braces.

Benefits of Invisalign aligners

Benefits of Invisalign aligners include:

  • Comfort: Invisalign clear aligners are formed from smooth BPA-free plastic. They do not irritate soft oral tissue or gums – unlike traditional metal braces.

  • Convenient: You can straighten your teeth with Invisalign aligners without needing frequent dental visits as you do with metal braces.

  • Removable: Invisalign aligners are removable. You can eat, floss, and brush with ease. They need no attachments.

  • Discreet: Invisalign aligners are made from transparent plastic, so they are discreet – unlike traditional metal braces.

Invisalign aligners can resolve the following:

  • Underbite

  • Overbite

  • Open bite

  • Crossbite

  • Narrow arches

  • Crooked teeth

  • Overcrowded teeth

  • Gaps or spaces between teeth

The above oral problems often affect jaw function, cause pain, make it difficult to eat, or lead to speech problems. Luckily, Invisalign aligners are a popular treatment choice that not only improves your smile’s appearance but also restores jaw function.

Adults and teenagers in the Washington, D.C. area are turning to Invisalign treatment as an effective way to obtain a lovely smile without the unsightly metal brackets of traditional metal braces.

Invisalign treatment

Dr. Chang offers Invisalign aligners to patients because the treatment option is effective and easy to maintain. You simply clean the Invisalign clear aligners with a soft-bristled toothbrush and lukewarm water. Always rinse the aligner before putting it back in your mouth to prevent bacteria buildup.

Most individuals will wear Invisalign aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day. You can remove them when you eat, drink, floss, and brush.

It takes 9 – 19 months to correct most dental issues, depending on severity.

You’ll need to be fitted for Invisalign aligners. An appointment with the team at CK Dental & Associates will involve taking x-rays and performing an oral evaluation to decide if Invisalign aligners will meet your needs.
