If you are a teen or adult looking for a discreet means of straightening your teeth, Invisalign, i.e., invisible teeth aligners, may be just what you need. Invisalign treatments offer a viable alternative to conventional braces in correcting imperfections with your teeth. By discussing the pros and cons of invisible teeth aligners with Dr. Amanda Smith, Dr. Judi Whitcomb, and Dr. Randy Viola, your Nashua Invisalign dentists, you can determine if Invisalign is the best choice for you.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment used for straightening teeth. Invisalign differs from conventional braces in that the aligners are practically invisible – a plus for teens or adults who do not want to call attention to themselves when undergoing orthodontic treatment. Invisalign aligners can also be removed for eating or brushing, whereas conventional braces are semi-permanently attached to your teeth throughout the treatment.
Invisalign aligners are just as effective in correcting problems with:
- Gaps in between your teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Crooked teeth
You will love the results of beautiful teeth!
Advantages of Invisible Teeth Aligners in Nashua NH
In addition to aesthetics, Invisalign treatments offer additional advantages over conventional metal braces for straightening your teeth. Here are just a few:
With Invisalign aligners, you do not have to adjust your diet or dental hygiene habits during treatment. As the aligners can be removed for eating, you can continue to enjoy your favorite cuisine. In like manner, you can remove the aligners when brushing and flossing your teeth so there is no disruption to your normal dental hygiene routine.
With braces, however, you will have to abstain from certain foods such as popcorn and chewy snacks. You may even be asked to abstain from eating nuts, carrots, apples, or other hard foods to reduce the risk of damaging your braces. Brushing and flossing will also take more time and care when you are wearing braces to ensure you are getting your teeth clean.
Conventional metal braces are more bulky than lightweight Invisalign aligners, making them more uncomfortable to use. Braces also require a trip to your orthodontist monthly to have them tightened. This procedure can cause discomfort and pain. In contrast, with Invisalign, you merely switch aligners as needed to complete the treatment, eliminating anxiety, discomfort, and pain.
Invisalign is a safe and effective orthodontic treatment for teens, and adults. As the aligners require some maintenance and care, parents may want to wait until their children are older and more responsible before starting this treatment.
Invisalign aligners are extremely effective in correcting many of the same issues that conventional braces treat. Working with experienced dentists like Dr. Smith, Dr. Whitcomb, and Dr. Viola is key to getting positive, satisfactory results from your treatment. With Invisalign orthodontic treatment, you can walk away with the smile of your dreams.
