At Agawam Dental Arts, we offer Invisalign therapy as an alternative to traditional metal braces. Our Feeding Hills, MA patients often love the idea of Invisalign because they can straighten their teeth without anyone knowing. If you have often thought about how you would like to see a straighter smile or have wanted orthodontic treatments without a mouthful of metal, Invisalign may be an option for you. Consider these five Invisalign benefits:
1: Easy to Use: Invisalign works by wearing a set of clear, plastic aligners that gently rotate the teeth into the desired position. You simply snap on one set of aligners, wear it for most hours of the day for two weeks, then switch to the next set of aligners. You will return periodically to our Feeding Hills dentist office to obtain new aligners.
2: No Modifications to Your Diet: With braces, foods like corn on the cob and sticky foods are a no-no because they can easily become stuck in the brackets. Because you take Invisalign aligners out when you eat, you do not have to change your diet to accommodate your orthodontic treatments.
3: Great Results: Straighter teeth are more than just a cosmetic issue. They also are easier to clean, which means you typically experience less tooth decay. Straight, even teeth are the hallmark of a beautiful smile, and Invisalign makes it possible without having to wear braces. While you may wear Invisalign for the same duration as you would traditional metal braces, the process is typically easier to adjust to for a period of 12 to 18 months while you achieve a straighter smile.
4: Correct Mild- to Moderate-Alignment Issues: While Invisalign may not be the right solution for every type of orthodontic problem, they are a good option for those with mild- to moderate-alignment issues. Dr. Calabrese can help you determine if Invisalign can benefit you at his Agawam Dental Arts practice.
5: Clearly an Easy Way to Straighten Your Teeth: Invisalign aligners are made from clear, plastic material that is well-fitting against your teeth. They are rarely noticeable to those around you and do not change your face shape or irritate the inner lining of your mouth as braces commonly can.
