Dr. Nathanson is your Certified Invisalign Provider in Hunt Valley
Invisalign is a type of orthodontic treatment that straightens teeth without the use of metal brackets and wires. Instead, it uses a series of clear, removable aligners to move teeth into their proper positions. A consultation with Dr. Nathanson at our Hunt Valley dental office can determine if Invisalign clear aligners are right for you.
What is it?
Invisalign is a way to correct malocclusion—when the bite does not come together properly. It can correct all malocclusions that traditional orthodontics can. It makes sure your bite comes together properly and you can eat and clean your teeth the way that you should.
Why would I want it?
While there are many reasons to have orthodontic treatment, using Invisalign to reach your goals comes with several advantages. The biggest is aesthetics; since the aligners are made of clear plastic, you don’t have to deal with metal brackets or wires. Hygiene is also an advantage because it’s much easier to keep your teeth clean when you can remove your aligners to brush and floss. You don’t have to worry about what you can’t eat because you can take your aligners out, and as long as you clean your teeth afterwards, you’re good to go!
How does it work?
First, you’ll come in for a consult to determine if Invisalign is appropriate for your needs. If it is, we will take impressions and photos to send to Invisalign to create your aligners. You’ll need to visit our Hunt Valley dental office every two weeks to start with, so Dr. Nathanson can assess your progress and give you new aligners. Once you get used to the aligners and are able to take them in and out without any problems, we can extend visits to about every month or two.
The duration of your treatment depends on the severity of your case. Invisalign Express cases can be completed in six to eight months, while comprehensive treatment can last up to two years.
