Many people in Nashua, NH would love to have a straighter smile but don’t want to deal with traditional braces. Some are self-conscious about having to flash metal every time they smile. Others just don’t want to have to deal with the regular adjustments and appointments required by traditional orthodontic therapy.
Whatever their reservations, many people wish there was an alternative.
Actually, there is. It’s called Invisalign, and if you live in Nashua, you should talk with our dentist, about how Invisalign can give you a straighter smile without affecting your life.
Invisalign is the brand name of a teeth alignment therapy system that works exactly like braces. However, instead of the metal brackets, bands, and wires your Nashua dentist has to cement to your teeth and adjust every month, Invisalign is a series of clear plastic trays. The trays, which look similar to sports mouth guards, fit over your teeth and are engineered to place a small amount of tension to move your teeth into proper alignment.
The difference is that you’re in control of when, where, and for how long you wear them. When you wear them, people won’t see them and if you feel the need to remove them – for cleaning, for a break, for a social situation during which you prefer not to wear them – you can remove them.
Like traditional braces, Invisalign trays are designed specifically for your needs and treatment goals. Typically, you will wear each tray for a few weeks at a time, for a certain number of hours a day before progressing to the next set of trays.
Invisalign yields best results for people who have mild occlusions or bite issues. If your situation is more complicated or severe, your Nashua dentist might recommend another option.
