Invisalign is a cosmetic dental treatment that gradually aligns crooked and misaligned teeth over time using clear trays. Treatment with Invisalign takes less time than traditional metal braces. The clear Invisalign aligners can be easily removed so that you can eat and brush your teeth normally.
Dr. Leah Romay provides Invisalign treatment to patients in her Glyndon, Maryland office. She ensures that patients fully understand their particular treatment plan so that they can feel comfortable with their care.

Benefits of Invisalign
With clear Invisalign aligners we can treat:
- Crooked teeth
- Overcrowded teeth
- Gaps between teeth
Invisalign is also used to help prevent dental problems that are caused by crooked teeth, including:
- Tooth decay
- Gum disease
- Misaligned bite
Because Invisalign clear aligners are flexible and easily removable, patients experience minimal discomfort and do not have any dietary restrictions.
Before treatment, Dr. Romay will assess your teeth and gums to determine if Invisalign is the right option for you. She will take dental impressions of your teeth to create your custom clear aligners. You will receive several sets of clear aligners at the beginning of treatment. Each set is worn for about two weeks during which they gradually reposition the teeth. Depending on how misaligned your teeth are, treatment can take from 6 to 18 months. Dr. Romay will provide you with a retainer following treatment to help you maintain your results.
