Invisalign – Milton, MA
Get on a Path Towards a Straighter Smile
There are numerous teens and adults out there that aren’t happy with the alignment of their teeth, but not everyone wants to spend the duration of their orthodontic treatment with a mouthful of metal brackets and wires. Fortunately, there is another option out there. At Milton Hill Dental, we offer Invisalign in Milton so you can get on a path towards a straighter smile without compromising your appearance. Contact our office to schedule your initial consultation.
How Invisalign Works
Instead of using metal brackets and wires in order to move your teeth, Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners to slowly shift your teeth into their new places. You will wear each set for approximately two weeks before moving on to the next one. Over time, your teeth will gradually move to their new, rightful locations. Unlike traditional braces, you don’t have to get anything tightened throughout your treatment, but you still need to come to the practice to make sure everything is going as planned.
Indications for Invisalign
Invisalign can correct a variety of different alignment issues. Here are some of the more common:
For teeth that have become crowded and are overlapping, Invisalign is a great solution. Clear aligners apply gentle pressure to different parts of the teeth to shift them to a more aligned position. This helps to prevent problems, like tooth decay and gum disease, that are common among people who have overcrowded teeth.
Gaps Between Teeth
When teeth are too far apart, gaps become apparent. They also put you at higher risk for oral health issues and tooth damage due to food debris and plaque easily becoming trapped and more difficult to remove. Invisalign can move your teeth to be the perfect distance apart.
If your bite isn’t aligned quite right, you could develop problems, like temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder and bruxism (teeth clenching and grinding). Invisalign is effective when it comes to correcting overbites, underbites, crossbites, and more!
The Benefits of Invisalign
If it’s determined that you make a good candidate for the procedure, here are some of the many benefits that you can expect to experience:
- Comfort: No brackets and wires mean no soft tissue irritation. Occasional discomfort is normal, but it’s short-lived and easily manageable. You can even start a new set of aligners before bed so you can sleep through the initial discomfort.
- Discreet: Clear aligners are virtually invisible, so no one will even be able to tell that you’re wearing them.
- No Eating Restrictions: As long as you take your aligners out before and take the time to brush and floss before putting them back in, you can eat pretty much anything that you want.
