Am I a Candidate for Invisalign in Boston?
Everyone wants a great smile that they can feel confident about, but they may not want to wear bulky braces in order to achieve it.
Traditional braces may have been the only option for years, but that’s no longer the case. Invisalign is an alternative that appeals to many people for its appearance as well as other advantages.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a brace system that straightens your teeth using a custom-made series of clear, virtually invisible aligners. They’re made of smooth, comfortable plastic that are worn over your teeth without metal brackets or wires.
The system utilizes a series of aligners to gently move your teeth into the proper place over time, based on the precise movements planned by your orthodontist.
What are the top reasons for Invisalign?
Invisalign is appealing for many reasons, including the following top 10 most important reasons to use Invisalign:
Since Invisalign are practically invisible, they don’t alter your appearance the way traditional braces do. You can also completely remove them, unlike traditional braces, which stay on until they’re removed by your orthodontist.
Invisalign is appropriate for treating many dental issues, and they’re as effective as traditional braces.
Traditional metal braces can make wearers feel self-conscious about their altered appearance as others notice and comment on their braces. Invisalign can improve your smile while avoiding any worries about their appearance.
Quick treatment time and fewer, short dental visits
Treatment with Invisalign usually takes between 10 and 24 months, depending on your particular needs.
Invisalign will help improve your bite if you have issues such as jaw clicking and pain in the joints around the mouth.
Easy brushing and flossing
Crooked or crowded teeth are hard to effectively clean, but traditional braces can also make brushing and flossing more difficult. Since Invisalign aligners can be removed for at-home dental care, you’ll be able to do a thorough job.
Invisalign may be covered by dental insurance, particularly if it corrects issues that go beyond cosmetic concerns.
No restrictions on eating
When you’re wearing traditional braces, you won’t be able to eat some types of foods. For example, popcorn, apples, candy, and other foods will be off limits.
Protects your mouth during sports
Wearing Invisalign during sports or other activities helps add a layer of protection similar to what you get from a mouth guard.
Reduced pain from teeth grinding
If you grind your teeth in your sleep, wearing Invisalign at night can help prevent this habit, reducing pain as well as wear and tear on your teeth.
What conditions does Invisalign treat?
Invisalign is very effective at treating the following types of bite alignment conditions:
- Open bite
- Crowded teeth
- Gaps between teeth
What does Invisalign involve?
One of our Boston orthodontists will make impressions of your teeth and have a series of aligners custom-made to fit you. You'll wear each set of aligners for about two weeks before getting new ones. With each new set, your teeth will be moved into a slightly straighter position until the desired results are achieved.
You’ll achieve straight teeth and a confident smile with the long list of benefits described above and with little interference in your daily life. At the conclusion of your treatment, you’ll receive additional care instructions.
