Clear Aligners in Baltimore, MD

What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign® aligners are an effective and discreet orthodontic treatment option that are worn comfortably over your teeth to adjust alignment and spacing continuously. These clear aligners are custom-made using models of your current teeth and the result you hope to achieve.

How long does Invisalign® take?

With Invisalign® aligners, you will switch to new aligners about every two weeks with each set shifting the teeth slightly. This continues until you have achieved your final results, which usually takes two years.

You remove the Invisalign® aligners for eating, drinking, and cleaning only. At first, they will feel tight, but they will begin to loosen and feel more comfortable after a few days.
