If you’ve ever wondered if you should get Invisalign®, you’re just like thousands of other people who long for a new, brilliant smile.

Thankfully, this cutting-edge technology is more available than ever before. It’s a great spin on orthodontic treatment to help those who don’t need the full experience of braces.

But what is Invisalign®? And how exactly does it work? Well, let’s take a look.

What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® begins with tossing out the notion that need wires and brackets to straighten your teeth. Instead, Invisalign® uses a series of clear plastic aligners. These aligners are custom-fit to your mouth. Most people wear them for 18 to 24 months, swapping a pair out every two weeks. A consultation with a dentist will help you know how long you need them for.

Why should I use it?
Invisalign® can—and does—change lives. If you want a straight smile, but don’t need extensive orthodontic treatment to achieve it, then it’s a great option. Invisalign® is also great for those who work in professional environments. It’s hard to feel confident in a business setting if you feel like you’re going through something you should’ve had in high school.

Invisalign® is invisible, and you won’t be able to tell you’re wearing the retainers half the time. To get started with the process, you’ll want to schedule an appointment with Dr. Steven Rattner in College Park, Maryland. A consultation is quick, and you’ll be able to start soon after it’s completed.
