A modern approach to realigning teeth, Invisalign® in Baltimore is an effective alternative to traditional metal braces. Best for adults and older teens, these comfortable transparent braces can correct a variety of common orthodontic problems, including overbite, crowding, spacing issues, and more.
What is Invisalign?
Made with smooth, BPA-free plastic and specially designed to fit perfectly over your teeth, Invisalign aligners are a discreet and comfortable way to correct your orthodontic issues. During Invisalign treatment, your dentist will create a series of custom aligners using 3-D imagery and X-rays of your teeth. You’ll wear the clear aligners over your teeth for 20-22 hours per day, switching to a new set of aligners every two weeks. Over time, Invisalign will gradually shift your teeth into place.
How Much Does Invisalign Cost?
Like many orthodontic treatments, Invisalign aligners are customized to address each patient’s specific issues. Because of this, the Invisalign cost will vary from person to person. Your specific Invisalign cost will depend on how many follow-up appointments are required, how long you require aligners, and your insurance coverage. We also provide flexible payment plans that can help make the cost of Invisalign treatment affordable.
How Long Will Invisalign Take?
For most patients, treatment with Invisalign lasts anywhere from 10 months to 2 years. Many adults can complete treatment in as little as one year. Teenagers’ treatment time will vary depending on how complicated their orthodontic problems are. At our practice, we understand that patients are looking forward to achieving straighter smiles. Our dentists devise effective treatment plans that get results in as little time as possible.
If you’re considering Invisalign, it’s best to consult with of a dentist with the proper licensing and credentials. Our Invisalign dentists have received the education and training necessary to administer clear aligners to patients. These experienced Invisalign dentists have helped patients with complicated dental issues achieve excellent results with Invisalign.
Invisalign vs Braces
Receiving the best treatment for your case is the top priority when considering Invisalign vs braces. While Invisalign is effective for mild to moderate misalignment issues, traditional braces may be a better option if your orthodontic problems are unusually complex. If your dentist determines that clear aligners are right for you, you’ll be able to enjoy the foods you love and remove the clear braces at any time – benefits that simply aren’t available with traditional braces. Our licensed Invisalign dentists will determine the treatment option that best suits your needs.

Can Anyone get Invisalign?
Best for adults and older teenagers, Invisalign is as effective as metal braces for treating mild to moderate orthodontic issues. Typically, your dentist will recommend wearing aligners on both rows of teeth, as wearing Invisalign on only one row may cause further misalignment problems. Because their mouths are still developing, children usually are not ideal candidates for Invisalign.

Is Invisalign Covered by Insurance?

If your plan does not cover Invisalign, ask about our convenient financing options. These flexible plans split the cost of Invisalign among several monthly payments.
