Want to improve the alignment of your teeth but can’t bear the thought of wearing metal brackets and wires for two or more years? You are not alone. Invisalign, the clear braces treatment for teens and adults, just reached 4 million smiles treated worldwide. It’s an FDA-approved orthodontic system offered by Dr. Shetty at Dental Designs of New England. How does Invisalign work? And how do clear braces compare to traditional ones? And is Invisalign in Merrimack right for you? Let’s take a closer look at the clear braces alternative that’s improving people’s smile confidence all over the world.
Invisalign Improves Orthodontic Treatment
Invisalign uses a series of custom-fit, clear plastic aligners to gradually shift your teeth into the proper position. It works for most common orthodontic issues, including gapped or crowded teeth as well as overbite, underbite, and crossbite. More complex cases may be better served by traditional braces. Your dentist can tell you which option may be best for you, and why.
Living With Invisalign
What do people who live with Invisalign have to say about the treatment? It’s a breeze once you get used to wearing the aligners. In fact, Invisalign is far more convenient than traditional braces. As long as you are wearing them for the recommended 20 to 22 hours each day, you can continue eating what you like, thanks to the removable trays. That includes the crunchy, hard foods that are banned with metal brackets and braces. And brushing and flossing are just as easy as before you begin orthodontic treatment with Invisalign. Simply remove the trays, brush, floss, rinse, and slip them back in to progress through your treatment on time.
Multiple Benefits of Invisalign Clear Braces
While the end results are the same, your experience throughout the Invisalign treatment is far different than with metal brackets and wires. Patients who choose Invisalign enjoy a number of benefits compared to traditional braces. Invisalign is the convenient, comfortable, and efficient alternative in orthodontics.
Some of the most apparent advantages of clear braces include…
- Give speeches, attend meetings, and socialize with confidence thanks to clear braces.
- Continue to eat as you please, simply removing the trays before meals and snacks.
- Maintain good oral health by brushing and flossing with ease.
- Smooth plastic is unlikely to rub the blisters created by metal brackets and wires.
- The average Invisalign treatment is completed more quickly than with traditional braces.
Most patients are eligible candidates for the Invisalign treatment. Healthy teeth and gums are necessary for the best results. You should undergo a checkup and cleaning before beginning with Invisalign. Cases of tooth decay or gum disease should be treated before or during your orthodontic treatment.
