Would you like straighter teeth, but don't like the look of metal braces? Invisalign offers the perfect option for you. Dr. Nicholas Papapetros, Dr. Jhon Giraldo and Dr. Leo Kharin, your Andover, MA dentists at Dentistry by Design, share some information about this innovative brace system.
Invisalign offers clear advantages
There's no way to hide traditional metal braces. Every time you open your mouth to talk, smile, laugh, sing or even yawn, it's obvious that you wear braces. Removable Invisalign aligner trays are made of comfortable, clear plastic, which means that your braces are almost invisible.
There are no adjustments with Invisalign
The Invisalign system uses a series of aligner trays, instead of wires and brackets, to move your teeth. Every two weeks, you'll begin using a new set of aligners to straighten your teeth gently and effectively. Although you'll still visit your Andover dentist periodically to check your progress, you won't have to worry about adjustments.
Invisalign treats a variety of issues
The Invisalign system corrects the same orthodontic issues that metal braces do. They're a good choice if you have an underbite, overbite, crossbite, open bite, crowding or gaps between teeth. If you're an adult, you may only need to wear Invisalign aligners for about a year. Teenagers usually wear the aligners for the same amount of time required for metal braces.
Invisalign is the most flexible brace system
Although your aligner trays aren't very noticeable, there still may be times when you would rather not wear them. Whether you're attending a special event or playing your favorite sport, it's no problem to remove your trays for a few hours. Because you'll also remove your aligner trays for meals, you can eat foods that are off limits for traditional brace wearers, such as popcorn, nuts, sticky candy and hard vegetables.
