Find out if Invisalign is the right orthodontic option for you.

It’s amazing how even the smallest misalignments in your smile can throw off everything, from making it more challenging to chew food to negatively affecting your confidence. The remedy? Turning to our Gaithersburg, MD, dentist Dr. Steven Rattner for orthodontic treatment. If you are an adult or teen that wants a straighter smile without colleagues or students noticing then Invisalign may just be the ideal approach.

Choosing Invisalign offers many benefits that other options just can’t, which is why so many people are turning to our Gaithersburg, MD, general dentist to get Invisalign. This clear system is easy to care for and adults may even be able to get results in a shorter amount of time than with traditional orthodontic treatment.

Invisalign may be right for you if you are dealing with mild to moderate,

  • Crookedness
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Crowding
  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Crossbites
  • Open bites


In fact, Invisalign treatment can handle most common malocclusions (“bad bites”) and issues that affect the alignment of your smile. Here are some of the benefits of this orthodontic system that uses clear, custom aligners instead of brackets and wires to straighten teeth.

Nearly invisible treatment

The goal for most of our older patients is to get a straighter smile, but many don’t want braces that are visible to the whole world (and we can’t blame them!). Maybe you want senior photos that don’t feature visible braces or you are a working professional who doesn’t want clients to notice your braces over what you have to say. All of these are reasons to consider getting Invisalign. These clear, custom-made aligners are far more discreet so you can feel confident even when wearing them.

No dietary restrictions

Another benefit to Invisalign is that you don’t have to worry about the foods you eat damaging your braces. These clear aligners are removable, which means that you can take your trays out prior to eating or drinking.

Ease cleaning and care

When getting braces our Gaithersburg, MD, family dentist wants to make sure that you keep your teeth and gums particularly clean to prevent decay from forming. Luckily, Invisalign treatment makes it easy to brush and floss regularly and also to keep aligners clean, too. No need to change your oral routine around to accommodate your braces.
