How Long Does Invisalign Take to Correct My Teeth?

While every patient is different and has unique issues to correct, patients can expect an average treatment time of 12 to 18 months. Your treatment may be shorter or longer. During your consultation with Dr. Nikkhah for Invisalign, she can give you a more accurate estimate for how long your treatment would take.

How Do I Know If I Qualify for Invisalign?

To find out if your unique smile would qualify for Invisalign, Dr. Nikkhah will conduct an oral exam and take x-rays during your consultation. The good news is that most patients will qualify for Invisalign treatment, with some exceptions where traditional braces would be more appropriate.

What Are Dental Implants and Why Would I Need Them?

Dental implants consist of a post that’s surgically implanted into your jaw bone and a dental crown which help form an artificial tooth. Dental implants are designed to effectively replace missing natural teeth and provide an alternative to dentures and bridges.

Is It Really Necessary to Visit the Dentist Every Six Months?

Visiting your dentist in Rockville is the best way to prevent oral health issues—combined with regular oral care at home, of course! While not every patient will need to come in every six months, we recommend an exam and cleaning at least once a year and more often as recommend by Dr. Nikkhah.

Some patients are predisposed to certain oral health issues and may need a higher level of care and more frequent dental visits, while other patients won’t need to come in as often. However, professional cleanings can be instrumental in keeping your smile healthy and stain-free!
