Invisalign & ClearCorrect - Dental Aligners

Invisalign Dentist Washington DC
Straight Teeth, Fast
 

Invisalign & ClearCorrect Washington DC
We offer both Invisalign™ and ClearCorrect™ virtually invisible aligners, innovative solutions that straighten teeth in as little as 6 - 15 months! These clear aligners can correct a range of issues including overcrowding, widely spaced teeth, overbite, underbite, or crossbite.
Short Term Dental Braces Washington
Treatment involves replacing the clear custom-made aligners about every two weeks, and no metal or wires means less time going back to the dentist for maintenance. Invisalign and ClearCorrect gently move teeth into a straighter position step by step, until you have completed treatment. No braces, wires, or headgear are necessary. This means no irritation to your mouth, and best of all, no one will know you’re even wearing aligners because they are practically invisible! The clear aligners are easy to remove so you can not only eat and drink whatever you want, but you can also easily brush and floss your teeth!

Sleep Apnea Dental Treatment

Sleep Apnea Dental Treatment Washington DCAre You Falling Asleep During the Day?

If you or someone you know falls asleep during the day, or snores loudly or has interrupted breathing while sleeping, it may be sleep apnea. The usual treatment for sleep apnea has been the bulky CPAP device. A patient is fitted with a machine that forces a continuous stream of air into the patient’s nose or mouth during sleep. However, many people find this uncomfortable and they can no longer wear the mask.

If you have sleep apnea and can’t use a CPAP machine, dentistry now has new treatment options such as oral appliances. These appliances are small acrylic devices that fit the upper and lower teeth much like an orthodontic retainer or mouthguard. They gently realign your tongue and jaw, which opens the airway and allows more air flow as you sleep. They are easy to wear and clean and are convenient for travel. These have worked well for over 90% of those who use them and are an excellent alternative to CPAP machines. If you snore or a physician has given you a sleep apnea diagnosis, give us a call today to learn more.

Oral Cancer Screening

Oral Cancer Screening Washington DC

Reduce the Risk

You don’t hear about it often, but oral cancer causes one American death each hour. This mortality rate hasn’t changed in 40 years. However, there is some good news. Early detection means a 90% cure rate!

That’s why we conduct visual screenings for oral cancer at each six-month checkup or cleaning. This examination includes all of the soft tissues of your mouth, as well as your throat, neck, and head.

If the hygienist or doctors see anything that causes concern, they’ll refer you to an oral surgeon. This type of screening could literally be lifesaving!
