Tell Me More!
Invisalign is a unique orthodontic system that provides our older teen and adult patients with a nearly invisible way to fix crooked, misaligned teeth to achieve their ideal smiles. Thanks to state-of-the-art computer technology, our Salem, NH, general dentists can map out every detail of your treatment plan including which teeth will need to move around and precisely how much they will need to move throughout the course of your treatment.
This information, along with 3D images of your mouth, will then be sent to an Invisalign lab where they will create several clear, customized aligners. These aligners, which look similar to mouthguards, are made from a transparent thermoplastic that fits tightly against the teeth so they aren’t noticeable. Each aligner is worn for about 2 weeks at a time, after which you will swap out the aligners for the next set in your treatment. The number of aligners you will receive will depend on the issue or issues you are correcting with Invisalign.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
One major benefit is that adults can finally feel confident getting braces without worrying that everyone else around them will notice. Patients who may have been a bit apprehensive about getting braces have nothing to fear about these clear, removable aligners.
That’s right; these aligners are also removable. While this doesn’t mean that you can just take your aligners off whenever you feel like it, you can remove them prior to eating, drinking, brushing and flossing. As long as you wear your aligners for around 20-22 hours each day, you should get the results you are looking for. It’s amazing how easily Invisalign fits into your lifestyle!
Invisalign has been helping countless teens and adults get straighter smiles in Salem, NH, and you could be next. Are you ready to find out if you are an ideal candidate for Invisalign? If so, call Stiles Family Dentistry today to schedule your consultation with us.
