Invisalign Clear Braces

orthodontics ocean city md | dentist ocean city mdMany of our patients started coming to us expressing a desire for straighter, more beautiful teeth but were not too excited at the thought of wearing braces for the next several years. At Atlantic Dental, we decided to do something about it, so we started offering Invisalign

Why You Should Choose Invisalign

Invisalign is a quick way to address cosmetic issues with your teeth while keeping your treatment discreet. Invisalign is completely clear and fits snugly over your teeth. You can speak without a problem and remove your trays to eat and drink, so there’s no need to worry about blueberries in your brackets! 

We recommend that you wear your aligners at least twenty-two or more hours a day in order to keep your treatment on track. Having the ability to remove your aligners to clean your teeth is a huge advantage over traditional orthodontics because it allows you to avoid staining, decay, and gum disease that often accompanies orthodontics. 

Benefits From Clear Braces

For our adult patients, Invisalign has provided a long-awaited solution to lengthy orthodontic treatment. This allows us to address such conditions as: 

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Oddly located teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Buck teeth 

Invisalign might be the answer you have been looking for. To find out if you are a good candidate for Invisalign, call us to set up a consultation.

Is Invisalign Painful | Dentist Ocean City MDAt Atlantic Dental, our Ocean City, MD dentist makes sure your mouth is thoroughly numb before performing any orthodontic work. We also offer sedation dentistry in the form of nitrous oxide if you need a little extra.

Finally, we provide aftercare instructions, including any pain medications that you may need at home.

Most patients compare orthodontic discomfort to what you would experience with any dental work—mild swelling and mild tenderness. These issues disappear quickly, and the results outweigh this discomfort by far!

Our Top Orthodontic Recommendation

If you have crowded or crooked teeth, we often recommend Invisalign aligners. This is a discreet way to straighten teeth. No metal. No wires. Additionally, Invisalign clear aligners are removable for brushing, flossing, eating, and rinsing.

Invisalign works via a series of custom teeth aligners that are changed up every few weeks to bring your teeth in line over time.

These aligners rely on consistent low-force pressure to get the job done. Because the pressure is low, Invisalign aligners are not painful!
