Invisalign offers a more discreet straightening option if you find traditional metal or ceramic braces unappealing. The innovative orthodontic system is among the treatments offered by the dentists at Unique Dental Care in North Attleboro, MA. Invisalign is an excellent option for both teens and adult and offers an effective way to correct a variety of orthodontic issues.
No metal wires or brackets are needed
The Invisalign system uses clear aligner trays to realign your teeth. Thanks to CAD/CAM technology, the trays fit your teeth perfectly and apply gentle, consistent pressure needed to straighten and re-position your teeth. Invisalign trays are removable, unlike metal or ceramic braces, which must remain attached to your teeth for the duration of your treatment. Each tray in the series is used for approximately two weeks before it is replaced with the next set.
Invisalign corrects common orthodontic problems
Whether your teeth are crowded due to crowding issues or a crossbite makes chewing difficult, Invisalign aligner trays can improve your smile. You can benefit from the Invisalign system if you have a mild to moderate orthodontic problem, such as crowding or spacing issues, or an open bite, crossbite, underbite or overbite. If your issues are complicated or severe, your North Attleboro dentist may recommend metal braces instead.
Dedication is the key to the success of the Invisalign system
One of the features that patients like best about Invisalign is the ability to remove the aligners for short periods of time. If there's a special event on your calendar, or you're playing your favorite sport, you can leave your trays at home for a few hours.
Although it's perfectly fine to remove your aligners occasionally if you have a game or special event, following the wearing schedule otherwise is very important. If you don't wear the trays for the recommended 20 to 22 hours on most days, it will take longer to correct your orthodontic issues. Before you choose the Invisalign system, you must be committed to following the wearing schedule recommended by your dentist.
