OX Orthodontix is proud to be the Ellicott City and Clarksville, MD areas’ top Invisalign provider. Our orthodontists specialize in this innovative orthodontic treatment and have treated 5,000 orthodontic cases (and counting) with Invisalign. With so much experience, the OX Orthodontix team is well-equipped to make everyone a candidate for Invisalign®.


The Advantages of Invisalign

Dr. Hickory and Dr. Selnick treat all orthodontic problems and patients of all ages with Invisalign. Because of product improvements, plus our experience, our orthodontists find that Invisalign is outperforming braces for many orthodontic treatment situations and is a better patient experience for those undergoing orthodontic treatment.


Invisalign offers many advantages over traditional braces:

  • With its flexibility, Invisalign fits any lifestyle.

  • No one will know you are wearing invisible aligners.

  • Invisalign is convenient, as the aligners are removable to eat, brush, and floss as needed.

  • Invisalign is simple because treatment plans are easy to follow and there are no broken braces or poking wires to deal with.

  • Invisalign works with any schedule as there are fewer and quicker appointments needed while undergoing treatment.


OX Orthodontix As Your Invisalign Provider

When you choose OX Orthodontix as your Invisalign provider, you can be sure you’re in the hands of a qualified team that can give you the best results from your orthodontic treatment. Our Invisalign treatment track record coupled with our experience as orthodontists, makes us the top choice in the Ellicott City, Clarksville, and Howard County areas for Invisalign. There are also a few other reasons to choose an orthodontist at OX Orthodontix over a general dentist elsewhere for Invisalign treatment:

  • Orthodontists specialize in tooth and bite realignment and know what to look for to create a perfect smile and how to achieve it with Invisalign, which facilitates better final results from orthodontic treatment.

  • Our orthodontists deal with Invisalign all day and have much more experience treating patients with Invisalign, therefore they have a more complex understanding of what works and how to troubleshoot Invisalign case issues.

  • Our orthodontic team has the knowledge and experience to treat more complex orthodontic cases with Invisalign, more so than a general dentist.

  • Drs. Hickory, Selnick, Derakhshan and Smith regularly attend conferences and Invisalign summits and are the first to get the new features released by Invisalign.

  • Dr. Derakhshan is the Align Technology International Clinical Director, so she is first to use all the latest digital orthodontic technology to create amazing smiles.

Invisalign As Your Orthodontic Treatment

Invisalign treatment consists of a series of removable clear aligners that fit over your teeth and are designed to apply carefully controlled forces to teeth to move them into a better position, much like how braces work. However, Invisalign is not made of metal; instead, the aligners are made of clear, flexible plastic.


At the start of your Invisalign treatment, your orthodontist uses specialized computer software to design a plan for moving your teeth from their current positions into the best possible alignment. This movement will be broken down into a few dozen stages. For each stage, you will wear a different set of two plastic aligners to accomplish gradual movement to achieve your smile, your way.


Cost of Invisalign

We know that when patients consider Invisalign as their orthodontic treatment, they are concerned about cost. OX Orthodontix provides complimentary Invisalign consultations and at this initial consultation, the new patient coordinator will give details about your treatment time and objectives. Our dedicated insurance representative will work with you to get the most benefit from your insurance.


Invisalign treatment costs are determined by how extensive the orthodontic issues are that are to be corrected, how long the orthodontic treatment plan will last, and the specific treatment details prescribed by the orthodontist.


Early Phase Invisalign

Dr. Hickory and Dr. Selnick are among the first children’s orthodontists to use Invisalign for early phase treatment. Having employed Invisalign as an early phase treatment for over 5 years, along with product improvements, has allowed our orthodontists to treat an increasing number of pediatric patients.

Adult Invisalign

When patients enter into their adult life, some are not willing to consider metal braces as an option for orthodontic treatment due to their noticeability and the discomfort they can cause. Invisalign offers the convenience and flexibility to live life without the hassle associated with other types of orthodontic treatment.


With smooth, comfortable Invisalign clear aligners, orthodontic treatment is discrete, there are no irritating brackets or wires to worry about, and because the clear aligners are removable you can brush and floss as normal and there are no food restrictions that will change your eating habits. Plus, with fewer orthodontist visits, Invisalign fits conveniently into any busy lifestyle.


Invisalign Teen

Most teens and their families visiting our Ellicott City and Clarksville offices for comprehensive orthodontic treatment are choosing Invisalign Teen over traditional orthodontic braces because of the flexibility that Invisalign offers.
