Dr. Narjes Abtahi, a graduate of the Medical College of Virginia Dental School, restores symmetry to disorderly mouthscapes with Invisalign treatments. Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 12 or as many as 48 separate aligners will need to be worn during a period of 6–15 months before the straightening effect finally self-actuates in a sudden burst of pink smoke and slobber. Aligners are only removed when eating, brushing, flossing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
Dr. Abtahi tends to teeth with an empathy and respect for her patients. Wielding a caring attitude and a gentle touch, the skilled dental doc understands the fears many harbor about going to the dentist, and performs each treatment according to her client's comfort level. Massaging dental chairs cradle mouth owners in a state of blissful relaxation akin to being wrapped in a blanket made of angel wings. During procedures Dr. Abtahi solves tooth troubles efficiently and then sends patients on their way with mended and smiling mouths.
