Your misaligned teeth have plagued you for years, but you have not done anything about them because the last thing you want is a mouth full of metal brackets and wires. For adults in your situation, New Haven Dental Group has the perfect solution: Invisalign. Comfortable, convenient, and reliably effective, this remarkable system is the first choice for many individuals around the world who want to achieve straighter, healthier teeth in the most discreet way possible thanks to Invisalign in Branford.
Instead of using brackets and wires to move the teeth, Invisalign instead utilizes a series of lightweight, clear plastic aligners. A patient simply wears an individual set for about two weeks for 20-22 hours a day before moving onto the next, and once they have gone through the entire series, their teeth will have reached their perfect positions. Throughout treatment, patients must attend regular, brief checkups so our team can make sure that everything is proceeding according to plan.
The many advantages Invisalign offers make it easy to see why so many patients are choosing it over traditional metal braces:
At this point, you may be convinced that Invisalign is a great treatment, but you might also wonder if you truly need to invest the time and money into straightening your teeth. Is it really worth all the effort it takes just to achieve a more attractive smile? While having perfectly straight teeth will certainly bolster your appearance, aligning your dentition has another, even more important advantage: improved oral health.
When the teeth are well-aligned, they are much easier to clean than if they are crowded and mashed together. This means you can actually lower your long-term risk of tooth decay with Invisalign. The treatment can even help line up the bite to reduce your risk of TMD and improve overall oral function.
We usually recommend Invisalign only for patients who are 18 and older. Consistently wearing the trays requires a measure of self-discipline, and younger patients may still have developing jaws and teeth. To see if this treatment would work for you, the best thing to do is schedule a consultation at New Haven Dental Group in Branford. We will perform a brief exam, go over your treatment options, and if Invisalign is one of them, we can get you started on your journey to straighter teeth right away.
