Have you always wanted a straight, healthy smile, but just never received orthodontic correction? Are you at a point where you have no confidence when you smile in public? Consider a consultation with your dentist in Billerica, MA, Dr, Kunio Chan, at One Dental Care. He offers innovative Invisalign clear aligners, an outstanding way for older teens and adults to get well-aligned smiles discreetly, efficiently, and comfortably. Read on to learn all the details.
Invisalign has straightened smiles all over the world for the past 20 years. Instead of metal or ceramic brackets and wires, patients wear customized, clear aligners that are smooth, comfortable, and virtually unnoticeable. Older teens and adults may qualify for Invisalign if they have mild to moderate smile problems such as:
- Open bite
- Cross bite
- Orthodontic relapse (teeth drifted after braces were removed)
- Tooth tipping
- Tooth rotationOvercrowding
Through oral examination and digital X-rays, your Billerica dentist will tell you if Invisalign is your best option. If it is, you'll wear 18 to 30 pairs of aligners over nine to 15 months, a shorter treatment time than traditional orthodontics. Additionally, you'll enjoy aligners that are:
- Removable for special occasions, meals and oral hygiene
- Easily cleaned with non-abrasive toothpaste and a soft brush
- Computer-designed to achieve effective and attractive smile alignment perfect for your unique needs
- So discreet few (if any) people will notice them
Who can get Invisalign?
Many people, except the most complex of orthodontic cases, may qualify. Even teens, who sometimes have difficulty complying with orthodontic oral hygiene routines and dietary restrictions, do well with Invisalign. In fact, Invisalign Teen aligners are fitted with compliance tabs which change color to indicate if the appliances are worn properly. (20 to 22 hours a day is the minimum.)
In addition, people with busy school and work schedules love the simplicity of Invisalign treatment. They see Dr. Chan every four to six weeks so he can check their progress and deliver the next aligner pairs in the care plan. There are no painful or lengthy adjustments to endure, and oral tissues and gums suffer no sore spots as are common with traditional braces.
