If you need to straighten your teeth, you have other options besides traditional metal brackets and wires. Many dentists recommend Invisalign, a clear aligner worn over the teeth.
Metal braces remain in place for several years and slowly move your teeth into the correct positions. However, Invisalign aligners work similarly to retainers: you wear the aligner for two weeks, then visit your dentist to remove it and receive a new one. During each two-week period, the aligners adjust your teeth gradually.
Invisalign aligners come with many benefits over traditional braces. They are transparent, so only those who look closely will notice them. Additionally, your dentist will mold your aligner to fit your mouth, resulting in a product so smooth and comfortable that you might forget you’re wearing it. You can also remove aligners when you eat, brush, and floss, making them easier to maintain than metal brackets that catch bits of food.
Talk to your dentist to learn more about Invisalign aligners.

For almost 18 years, Dr. Allen Garai has outfitted adults and children with braces at his Vienna, Virginia-based practice. Alongside many types of braces, he offers Invisalign braces as an alternative to brackets and wires. He also sees patients for general oral hygiene matters.
There are a number of products that people who wear braces can use to improve their oral hygiene. Here are some examples:
1. The interdental toothbrush: Unlike a normal toothbrush, the interdental toothbrush is designed to get between the teeth as well as under and around braces and wires.
2. Antibacterial mouthwash: This product can prevent infection and irritation that may develop from braces. It also can assist with irritation caused by canker sores and cheek bites.
3. Fluoride: This is especially crucial for people with braces, because it prevents tooth decay by killing bacteria and restoring minerals in the enamel. Fluoride can be applied directly to the teeth in gel form, or it can be used as a mouthrinse.

Dr. Garai is an orthodontist practicing in Vienna, Virginia. He offers several types of braces to his patients, including standard metal braces and more modern invisible braces.
Most people associate orthodontists with braces and teeth straightening, which are major parts of any orthodontic practice. However, orthodontists also correct jaw relationship disproportion and irregularities. These are some of the more common problems:
1. Upper front teeth protrusion: This occurs when the upper teeth extend too far forward or the lower teeth do not extend forward enough. These issues can affect the appearance and function of the teeth negatively.
2. Overbite: The upper front teeth extend so far over the lower teeth that the lower teeth sometimes bite into the roof of the mouth.
3. Crossbite: When the upper teeth sit inside the bottom teeth, this can lead to misaligned jaw growth.
4. Openbite: The upper and lower front teeth do not overlap, potentially leading to the development of habits such as tongue thrusting.
5. Crowding: This is what happens when teeth do not have enough room to emerge from the gums.
