Straight, well-aligned teeth create a gorgeous, confident smile and are commonly healthier and easier to keep clean. Orthodontic problems (such as crooked teeth and an uneven bite) may also result in subsequent dental health conditions that may impact your oral function, which could be more expensive to repair. To help individuals reap the benefits of a beautiful, healthy smile, our staff proudly offers Invisalign orthodontics to teenagers and adults in Ashburn, VA. The Invisalign treatment process straightens teeth by way of clear, removable teeth aligners, providing a discreet appearance and a simple alternative to traditional orthodontics. Determine if Invisalign clear aligners are a good choice for your smile goals by setting up a consultation with Dr. Joanna Claustro at Joanna Claustro DMD & Associates.

Who is a Candidate for Invisalign Treatment?

The Invisalign system is appropriate for treating a wide range of orthodontic problems in teenagers and adults. Good candidates usually have mild to moderate misalignment issues that make them feel self-conscious. During your initial consultation, Dr. Claustro will assess your smile and review your orthodontic options to ensure that Invisalign aligners are right for your needs. We may take X-rays and dental impressions to create a tailored treatment plan that meets your smile goals.

Invisalign clear aligners function via a custom series of transparent removable trays that steadily guide your teeth into their optimal location. To start your orthodontic treatment, our Ashburn, VA team will take an impression of your mouth, which will be sent to a designated lab where your customized aligners will be fabricated. When the aligner trays are received at our dental center, our staff will schedule you to come back in to try on your initial set and go over instructions for wearing them. The aligners should be worn in your mouth for no less than 20 – 22 hours every day and only taken out prior to brushing your teeth, flossing your teeth, eating foods, or drinking. Approximately every 7 – 14 days, you will swap out your current pair of Invisalign trays for the next in your series. Our team will help you set up periodic follow-up visits at Joanna Claustro DMD & Associates so our expert Invisalign dentist can monitor your orthodontic results.

Dr. Claustro, Aubrey, and the hygienists were amazing! You can feel that the warm, family friendly, welcoming environment my family and I enjoyed is who they are. This is only matched by the high quality care, attention to detail and professionalism I experienced. You can tell they care about each person who comes through the door from her youngest patients on up. I would highly recommend the whole family giving this dentists office a try. You will be glad you did.

Had a cleaning today with Michelle which is always a pleasure, and met Dr Claustro’s new associate, Dr. Argawal. She was very kind and thorough.

About Us
Do Invisalign treatments hurt?

No, most patients don't find that Invisalign teeth straightening treatment is painful. In fact, some have said that it is more comfortable than traditional braces. Some people may experience minor tooth soreness and discomfort as their teeth adjust to a new tray, but it typically only lasts for a few days and is usually easily controlled with over-the-counter pain relievers if necessary (always consult your physician).

How long does it take to straighten your teeth with Invisalign?

It depends on how severe your teeth misalignment is and how diligent you are about wearing your Invisalign trays. In general, most people will need to wear their Invisalign trays for about 12 – 18 months to achieve their goals.

How long do you have to wear your Invisalign trays every day?

To achieve the best results in the least amount of time with your Invisalign trays, we recommend that they are worn for at least 20 – 22 hours a day. It is Ok to take them out to eat, brush your teeth, or for a special occasion, but they should be put back in immediately afterward.

How often are the Invisalign trays switched out?

It will depend on the progress of your treatment. On average, Dr. Claustro will have your trays changed out every 7 – 14 days. You will also have regular follow-up exams to track your treatment progress and to check if any changes need to be made to your treatment regimen.
