Invisalign Southborough MA
Many people suffer from dental alignment issues. In the past, only metal braces were used to straighten teeth. Fortunately, people now have an option. Technology has advanced significantly since then, allowing those with alignment issues to use clear aligners such as Invisalign. Invisalign uses a set of clear plastic aligners to straighten teeth discretely. Nobody has to know. Invisalign can fix mild to moderate cases of crowding, underbite, overbite, crossbite, open bite and gapped teeth. Your dentist will use 3D imaging to create aligners that are customized for your mouth. If you’re interested in straightening your teeth, Southborough Dental Partners can determine if Invisalign is the right choice for you.
The first step is to schedule a consultation with your dentist. Your dentist will assess your smile and determine if Invisalign will help you achieve the smile you desire. If you are a good candidate, the dentist will take a smile scan, which involves 3D images of your teeth. The doctor uses special software to fine-tune each shift in your teeth. Each time your teeth shift, you will be given a new set of aligners. This treatment plan is sent to the lab and your aligners are created using innovate SmartTrack material, which make the aligners comfortable to wear. Your aligner is then trimmed to fit your gumline. The lab will then do a quality check to ensure that your aligners are perfect, with no defects.
Pros and Cons
No teeth straightening system is perfect, so here are some pros and cons to consider before choosing Invisalign. First of all, Invisalign is more comfortable than braces, since there are no wires or brackets to poke your cheeks and gums. Invisalign is also more attractive. The clear aligners don’t stand out like braces do, so you feel less self-conscious about them. You can smile freely.
Invisalign can also make your teeth cleaner and healthier. The aligners are removed when you eat, so you can brush and floss your teeth normally. You don’t have to worry about special cleaning techniques. Plus, you don’t have to avoid your favorite foods.The aligners must be worn for at least 23 hours a day. They also require cleaning to avoid bacterial build up.
Invisalign can treat a variety of alignment issues without interrupting your busy life. Schedule a consultation with Southborough Dental Partners. Call our office today at (508) 357-8800. We look forward to serving you!
