Invisalign  Sudbury, MA

Invisalign

If you or someone you know is about to get braces, you might investigate one question first: What is Invisalign? That’s because Invisalign is a revolutionary process for straightening teeth. This system utilizes clear aligners that are made from a strong thermoplastic. They fit the teeth snugly and comfortably. They don’t rub against the gums or cheeks, and they don’t cause sores or irritation.

Your orthodontist will help you determine if Invisalign is right for you. These factors should play a role in your decision:

  • Those who qualify for Invisalign in Sudbury — and everywhere else — usually don’t have severe alignment issues like rotated teeth. At this time, ceramic or metal braces are better for such problems.
  • To be a good Invisalign candidate, you must be willing to follow your Sudbury Dental Orthodontist’s instructions. It’s important to wear your adjusters as often as he or she tells you to.
  • Invisalign can be somewhat more expensive than traditional braces are.

At this point, you might be wondering: Exactly how does Invisalign work? Well, let’s explore this exciting system in more depth.

How Does Invisalign Work in Sudbury, MA 01776?

The Sudbury Invisalign process works as follows:

  • Your orthodontist will use a computer to capture 3D images of your teeth. Those pictures will let her or him design clear aligners specifically for your mouth, and a 3D printer will produce them. You’ll then wear each of your aligners for two weeks or so. New aligners will fit your teeth as they move into new positions.
  • Once every four or six weeks, you’ll visit your orthodontist so that he or she can review your progress and give you the next few aligners you’ll use. The entire process usually takes about nine to 18 months.
  • When your teeth are fully aligned, you’ll wear a retainer for a certain duration. That way, they’ll stay in place over the long haul.

Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign offers many advantages, including the following:

1. As the name suggests, these devices are almost invisible, and they won’t show up in photos.

2. You can take these aligners out of your mouth whenever you need to, which means you can eat just about any food that you want.

Similarly, this type of treatment makes oral hygiene easy. You can just take out your aligner to clean it, and you can remove it before you brush or floss your teeth. By contrast, traditional braces often get in the way of brushing and flossing, making cavities and other dental problems a little more likely.

3. With Invisalign, each orthodontic visit is brief and simple.

At the outset, your orthodontist will plan how and when each tooth will move. Therefore, he or she has control over the entire process; everything is predictable. And, during each of your appointments, your orthodontist can verify that every tooth is moving as it should.

Given that your aligners will be customized for you, the procedure will be smooth and precise. Invisalign eliminates the aspects of metal braces that can hurt, brackets that stick out, wires that need tightening, and so on and so forth.
In short, this system is safe and highly effective, and you’re sure to love the results.

Retention  Sudbury, MA

Retention

After you have worn your braces for the appropriate amount of time, we move into the retention stage of your treatment. It is VERY important not to skip this step, or all of your hard work will not pay off as you had hoped. Your teeth may shift around or move back to where they were instead of staying in place.

During retention, you will have to wear retainers as your teeth adjust to staying in their new place without braces. You should wear your retainers as recommended by your dentist. Some should be worn only at night, while others need to be worn almost all of the time.

Brushing your teeth is easier in this phase, since the retainers are removable. All you have to do is remove your retainer, and then you will be able to brush your teeth better than you were able to when you had braces. You should also brush your retainer thoroughly before placing it back to your mouth.

Early Treatment  Sudbury, MA

Early Treatment

The earlier we catch problems with your child’s bite, the simpler they are to fix. The results are often better than if we wait and will require significantly less work. We may not need to keep braces on your child for as long when they are younger, which means less expense for you.

The American Association of Orthodontics (AAO) recommends that children visit an orthodontist as soon as their dentist notices that there might be a problem, or before they are seven years old. We may not have to do anything at this age, other than monitor the child’s mouth. However, if we continue to watch your child, we can start treatment right away if something arises.

Early intervention can be beneficial. We will watch how your child’s mouth and teeth grow and develop, so if we see something that needs to be done, we can do it as soon as possible. We will also know exactly when to start treatment, if needed.

Clear Aligners

A set of clear aligners is the newest form of braces. The aligners are invisible and removable, making them very popular. The system uses clear, acrylic trays that straighten teeth just like braces and are much more comfortable.

Clear aligners are nice because you can remove them to eat so you don’t have to feel like you can’t eat something. They can also be removed when you brush and floss your teeth so that your oral hygiene does not suffer while you are wearing braces.
