Your dentists at Finksburg Dental Associates can help you straighten your smile so you look your best and have great oral health. In their Invisalign Finksburg office, they offer Invisalign, the clear acrylic aligners which fix smile misalignments and spacing problems without the discomforts traditional braces cause. Let Dr. Leland Aiken, Dr. Jan Katzen, and Dr. Lisa Patel show you how Invisalign can help your smile.

Absolutely discreet

Instead of metal or ceramic wires and brackets, Finksburg Dental Associates uses three-dimensional iTero scans to create 18 to 30 crystal clear Invisalign appliances. These removable aligners fit your teeth perfectly and exert steady forces to shift teeth into better positions.

Worn 20 to 22 hours per day, and changed to a new pair every two weeks, Invisalign aligners are very thin and practically invisible. They do their work quickly and comfortably with customized treatment plans lasting about one year on average. You can continue to enjoy your usual healthy diet without restriction, and your appliances will not irritate your gums or lips as conventional braces can. Plus, you remove them to eat, brush and floss. Nothing could be easier.

Will Invisalign work for you7

Your dentist at Finksburg Dental Associates will qualify you with an oral exam, X-rays, and specialized imaging using the iTero Scanner. The information from this evaluation allows the dentist and the Invisalign lab to create your aligners. 

Invisalign treats many orthodontic problems such as overbite, underbite, crossbite, openbite, overbite, gaps, overcrowding, tooth tipping, tooth rotation, orthodontic relapse, protruding front teeth, and more. Very complex cases, however, need treatment with traditional metal braces. Additionally, children cannot use Invisalign because their jaws have not finished developing and their adult teeth have not fully erupted.
