For those who have crooked teeth or a misaligned bite, gaining a straight, beautiful, healthy smile doesn’t have to be a big hassle. With Invisalign® in Chantilly, Virginia, you’ll know what to expect during the entire process.
To begin the Invisalign process, have a consultation with Dr. Anisa Omar and discuss your needs and goals. Our orthodontist will determine if Invisalign is the right choice for you by evaluating your smile. Images and impressions will be taken of your smile so that your treatment plan can be mapped out. Your treatment plan will include the exact movement of your teeth and the approximate length of your treatment.
Other options include clear aligners which can be different from Invisalign. Both can be synonymous, but not every clear aligner is from Invisalign. One of our colleagues from Washington wrote a piece clarifying the difference between the terms clear aligners vs. Invisalign.
Your aligners will be nearly invisible, so you can smile with self-confidence. Invisalign aligners should be worn for 20 to 22 hours every day to achieve optimal results. Your aligners should be removed when you eat and when you brush and floss. Each set of aligners will gradually move your teeth to their ideal positions. Depending on your specific needs, our orthodontist may recommend that you move to a new set of aligners every one to two weeks. Checkups should be scheduled about every six weeks.
