Invisalign in Norfolk, MA
You brush and floss, visit your dentist regularly for exams and teeth cleanings, but your teeth are not as straight as you would like them to be. They overlap in places. They are unevenly spaced. You hide your smile when you laugh. You’ve considered orthodontics but don’t want to spend up to two years with silver in your mouth. We get it, and we are here to help—offering Invisalign for adults and older teens.
Invisalign® is a fantastic way to straighten your teeth without metal and wires. This revolutionary orthodontic option is made of clear and smooth plastic for discretion and maximum comfort. With this virtually invisible system, you can enjoy a beautiful smile without advertising your treatment.
Getting Started with Invisalign®
With any orthodontic or cosmetic dentistry option, your dentist in Norfolk, MA first evaluates your oral health to ensure the treatment you’ve chosen will give you the desired results. The good news is that most of our patients with healthy teeth are good candidates for Invisalign. Of course, you may require pretreatment before orthodontics. This can include anything from a professional teeth cleaning to an extraction for desired results. Your dentist will also talk to you about the treatment timeline and answer your questions at this initial appointment.
After your dentist approves you for Invisalign, we take impressions of your teeth. The Invisalign lab uses our results to craft custom aligners. These aligners work to straighten your smile across the treatment timeline.
The Benefits of Invisalign in Norfolk, MA
Invisalign has several benefits during and after treatment. For example, you change your aligners every few weeks to bring your teeth into position slowly. While you visit the dentist periodically throughout treatment to ensure your teeth are straightening on schedule, you do not have to come into our office to change your aligner.
Compared with traditional braces, Invisalign is designed for comfort and discretion. And unlike traditional braces, you can remove your aligners for brief periods to eat and clean your teeth. The latter allows for more thorough brushing and flossing.
Following treatment, you’ll have a straight smile, and you’ll no longer cover your mouth when you laugh! Also, a straight smile is healthier because your teeth are easier to clean, and an aligned bite means less wear on specific teeth.
Invisalign can correct the following orthodontic issues:
- Overbite, underbite, crossbite
- Twisted, overlapping, crooked teeth
- Gaps between teeth and uneven spacing
Part of your Invisalign therapy also calls for a clear, custom retainer at the end of treatment. The benefits of this retainer are to keep your new smile in line.
