Invisalign – Beverly, MA
Get a Straight Smile with the Clear Choice
If you didn’t have braces as a child, you may feel you missed your opportunity to get a straight smile. Metal braces can cause a juvenile-like appearance that doesn’t match your lifestyle. You’re not out of options. Now, 1 in 5 orthodontic patients is over the age of 18 because of less noticeable treatments, like Invisalign. The clear aligners are the ideal solution for teens and adults who want to discreetly correct their bite and alignment concerns. Beverly Farms Dental can create the healthy, beautiful smile you have always wanted.
Benefits of a Straight Smile
A straight smile is important for more than just your self-esteem. In fact, the alignment of your teeth also impacts your oral health and your quality of life. Your teeth are harder to clean when they aren’t in their proper positions. This increases your risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
Alignment issues can also lead to an uneven bite, which can impact your speech, chewing, biting, and other oral functions. It can cause uneven wear on your teeth, increasing the risk of a broken or fractured tooth over time. You even have a heightened risk of a knocked-out, broken, or dislodged tooth if you experience trauma to the face or mouth.
Invisalign can move your teeth into their correct positions to not only invest in your confidence but also your oral health.
Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign is an FDA-approved orthodontic system that uses clear aligners to move the teeth instead of brackets and wires. The nearly invisible solution is a leading reason over 1.4 million people have chosen Invisalign to transform their smiles. Overall, you experience several benefits not possible with traditional braces, including:
- Sophisticated and discreet solution.
- Effective for correcting several bite and alignment issues.
- No dietary restrictions because the aligners are removable.
- Less time in the dental chair because you do not need adjustments.
- Easy oral hygiene routine and aligner care.
- Results in less time than metal braces.
Indications for Invisalign
Now, Invisalign is effective for correcting a variety of bite and alignment concerns, including:
- Crowded teeth.
- Gaps between teeth.
- Rotated or tilted teeth.
Although Invisalign can fix several issues, you still need a consultation to ensure it is the right treatment for you. Besides your orthodontic needs, you must have good oral health and commit to your treatment plan to be a candidate for the clear aligners.
Invisalign Treatment Timeline
During your initial consultation, a 3D impression of your mouth is taken, which integrates with advanced technology. We map the movement of your teeth and transfer the information to a series of custom-made clear aligners.
You must wear your aligners for at least 22 hours per day. Each aligner is worn for 1 to 2 weeks depending on your individual treatment plan. On average, it takes 12 months to finish the series, but the duration of your treatment depends on the complexity of your case. After you finish the series, you need a retainer to maintain your results.
