 Many patients are hesitant when it comes to needing braces. They would prefer to live with crooked teeth rather than face the discomfort and social awkwardness. For these patients, clear aligners may prove an effective alternative.

Conveniently located along the Maryland and DC border, the Washington Center for Cosmetic & Family Dentistry offers Invisalign in Washington DC.

What Is Invisalign?

Whether you’re looking to get Invisalign in Maryland or DC, the treatment will be the same  – clear braces. The difference between clear aligners and traditional braces extends well beyond the name.

The clear braces are tailor-made trays that cradle the teeth. Like traditional braces, they realign the teeth by exerting pressure on them. Dentists bond braces to the enamel of the teeth, whereas patients may remove Invisalign. There are no wires or elastics, and the trays are clear acrylic.

How It Works

The dentist takes detailed pictures of the mouth to produce a series of high-resolution images. These images allow them to input highly accurate measurements into specialized software.

The dentist completes the process by inputting the patient’s goals. The computer then has the starting point from which to work and a target.

The software establishes a plan for how best to achieve the required adjustment in a series of steps. It creates several designs for finely calibrated aligners, each with incremental improvements in tooth position.

The number of trays used depends on the level of adjustment. Patients typically require between twelve and forty-eight trays.

The patient wears each tray for two weeks: Any faster would cause too much discomfort and render the process ineffective. The patient keeps the trays in for at least twenty-two hours a day.

Patients remove the aligners when eating and cleaning their teeth. Good dental hygiene is critical as trapped food particles lead to plaque buildup and bacteria growth.

Why Choose Invisalign?

Aside from the aesthetic benefits, Invisalign:

  • Is more comfortable to wear than traditional braces
  • Is gentler on the teeth and gums
  • Makes it easier to maintain good oral hygiene

Does the System Work for Everyone?

For this treatment to be effective, the patient’s teeth must be reasonably healthy. Patients with extremely crooked teeth or who have several missing teeth may not benefit from this system.

Finally, Invisalign does require some commitment from the wearer. Young patients may not understand the importance of keeping the trays in for the recommended time. They may forget to put the aligners back in after eating or may misplace them.

Traditional braces are a better option for patients with severe misalignment issues and patients prone to forgetfulness.

At the Washington Center for Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, we are known for our state-of-the-art technology to provide outstanding dental care. But, as advanced as our technology is, our dentists are what really makes our practice excellent.

Dr. Sharon Brown is one of the leading dentists in the entire District of Columbia. With over thirty years of experience, she’s seen just about every case imaginable.

Dr. Brown’s Experience

Born and raised in West Hartford, Connecticut, Dr. Brown knew that she wanted to help people from an early age. Dentistry provided an excellent way to do so. She attended Brandeis University and the Georgetown University School of Dentistry.

She served out her residency at St. Francis Hospital in Hartford, CT, before joining a private practice. She worked in North Branford, CT, before moving to Washington, DC in 1990.

Dr. Brown adamantly believes that every patient deserves outstanding care. Her patients describe her as compassionate, caring, and highly skilled. She never misses a chance to improve her techniques and keeps a keen eye on new developments in the field.

She works with her husband, Dr. Pollowitz, at the Washington Center for Cosmetic and Family Dentistry.

She is currently a member of the Alpha Omega International Dental Fraternity, the Maimonides Dental Society, and the Greater Washington Academy of Women Dentists.

Dr. Brown’s Private Life

She’s a busy lady in the practice and out of it. With two dentists in the family, the schedule can sometimes be very hectic.

Her children are now all grown, so she knows what empty nest syndrome is like. She is also an active member of the Women of Reform Judaism and Alpha Omega.

She serves on the board of the Women of Washington Hebrew Congregation. While she doesn’t have a lot of free time, she makes it a point to play Mah Jong at least once a week.

Her passions include traveling and cooking. She plans to travel extensively once she and her husband retire. That day, though, is a long way off. Dr. Brown enjoys her work and can’t imagine stopping it anytime soon.

In the meantime, she settles for cooking exotic meals. She’s an excellent cook and loves nothing better than to prepare a meal for her family and friends.

Extremely focused on staying fit, she spends time at the gym each day. She believes in helping her patients to stay as healthy as possible and thus works hard to set a good example for them.

"My favorite dentist. Dr. Brown is hands down my favorite dentist. Highly skilled, fantastic bedside (chair side?) manner and a great team of skilled techs. Dr. Brown thoroughly explains proposed treatment, and keeps you informed the entire way. Her husband, Dr. Polowitz, is also great. Our whole family sees them."

Bill S.

"Dr. Brown and Pollowitz are highly skilled dentists, very talented artists, and have the best bedside or should I say "chair side" manner I have ever experienced. I trust them completely and have been seeing Dr. Brown and Pollowitz for almost 20 years now. When I lived out of town for two years, the dentist I saw there was amazed at the skill and perfection of the veneer and implant Dr Brown did and got the whole staff to come look at my mouth! I had an accident when I was a kid and have had lots of problems with my teeth ever since, and that includes many unpleasant experiences, but their kindness has given me a renewed respect and love for dentistry. It means a lot that Dr Brown will call me and find out if I am OK after a crown or something painful. She knows I am sensitive and takes time to take extra good care. Love them both."

Jenny L.

"As always my experience was top notch for a dental appointment. Dr Pollowitz explained the details of what he was going to do as he worked. It was an appointment to both replace a filling and to take care of the cavity on the outside of that filling. He proceeded slowly and there was never any feel of him rushing to get to the next patient. And Sylvia was very professional as always. Rate this office as a 5 star!"
