Consider These Benefits of Invisalign

The days of having to wear a mouthful of metal to get straight teeth are over. You can now have the smile you dreamed of without the noticeable hardware.

Though traditional braces are still an option, you can now choose Invisalign® as an alternative. The clear aligner trays straighten your teeth invisibly, allowing you to leave behind the idea of wearing metal brackets and wires on your teeth.

At K Street Dental & Orthodontic Group in Washington, DC, we’re Invisalign specialists who are highly trained in many methods of changing the appearance of your smile. We offer clear aligners that have many advantages — especially when compared to traditional braces.

Benefits of Invisalign

When choosing the best method of treatment for straightening your teeth, you now have several choices. Invisalign stands out as a preferred method for giving you a beautiful smile for several compelling reasons.

Barely visible

Metal braces draw attention to your mouth, which can make you feel self-conscious, particularly if you’re an adult.

With Invisalign, you can straighten your teeth without it being obvious. The clear, plastic material the aligners are made of is hardly noticeable to the naked eye. The trays are custom-made so they fit your teeth perfectly.


Though you need to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours a day, you can conveniently remove them to eat and when you brush your teeth. Their removability also ensures better oral hygiene because food and debris can’t get caught in wires or hidden spaces, as with braces.

You might also want to remove them for other reasons, such as attending a special occasion, going on a date, or giving a presentation. The flexibility to take them off as needed makes Invisalign an easy choice.

Quick results

Once we fit you for Invisalign, you receive a new set of clear aligners every two weeks. Your teeth gradually and immediately begin to shift into the desired position. This gives you straight teeth with a predictable timeline.

Most of our patients need to wear Invisalign for only 12-18 months. Of course, each person has unique needs, but on average, Invisalign can give you faster results when compared to traditional braces.

Invisalign aligners are also comfortable. Unlike with metal braces, your gums won’t scrape against or become irritated by wires, springs, or brackets.

Knowing if Invisalign is right for you

Invisalign clear aligners remedy most orthodontic issues, including:

If you have severe issues or a combination of any of the above, we can determine if you’re a candidate for Invisalign.
