At Nashua Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry, we are committed to helping patients restore and improve their smiles. When misaligned teeth are an issue, many individuals who visit our practice in Nashua, New Hampshire, may ask about treatment alternatives to traditional braces. For many of our patients, our revolutionary Invisalign treatment is a great solution for straightening the teeth.
What is Invisalign?
The Invisalign treatment is an “invisible” way to repair smile alignment problems, including crooked teeth or gaps between them, without metal brackets or wires glued to your teeth. Invisalign allows you to move your teeth in small steps at a time by wearing clear aligners specifically designed for you. Invisalign treatment may be customized based on the degree of tooth misalignment that needs correction.
Who is a good candidate for Invisalign?
The Invisalign orthodontic alternative is designed for patients with crowded, overlapping, protruding, or crooked teeth. In fact, Invisalign has been clinically proven to be effective for both teenagers and adults seeking to correct their smile alignment. Invisalign is also an option for patients who wish to avoid metal braces since Invisalign is a good alternative that uses clear aligner trays instead. This makes it ideal for the self-conscious patient who wishes to straighten their teeth without being able to see oral appliances during treatment.
How does Invisalign work?
There are two phases in Invisalign treatment: initial aligner trays, which gradually move teeth into position with pressure over time, and custom aligners used afterward to ensure teeth remain in place after final movement. The final aligners act like a traditional retainer worn at night to maintain the results. During Invisalign treatment, patients visit our Nashua practice routinely to monitor movement and alignment. As teeth are moved slowly into better alignment, patients use one Invisalign tray after another in their series until the desired result is achieved. Most Invisalign treatment is usually completed in about nine to 12 months, which is often faster than conventional orthodontia. Patients who finish Invisalign treatment achieve their ideal smile without traditional metal braces!
Is Invisalign right for me?
If you are unhappy with your smile due to crooked teeth, gapped teeth, or overcrowded teeth, Invisalign may be a great option for you. This orthodontic alternative offers several advantages over traditional metal braces, including:
- Invisalign trays are virtually invisible while worn
- Invisalign treatment requires no special oral hygiene care as the trays are removable
- Invisalign does not require you to glue appliances onto the teeth
- Invisalign allows you to eat the foods you want
- Invisalign treatment often gives patients a shorter orthodontic experience
- Invisalign works for older children, teenagers, and adults
- Invisalign is affordable and often comparable or cheaper than metal braces
- Invisalign depends on patient compliance as trays are managed by the patient themselves
