Teeth misalignment issues can cause more harm to our oral health and confidence than we know. With that, investing in teeth straightening treatments such as Invisalign treatment in Essex MA should not be overlooked. If you want to start getting treatment for crooked teeth or incorrect bite, Invisalign is a great option.
What is Invisalign and How Does It Work?
Teeth straightening is necessary to ensure that your pearly whites are aligned properly. This is important for two reasons: first, it can help improve your oral health, and second, it can give you the confidence to show off your smile. Invisalign is a type of teeth straightening treatment that uses clear aligners to gradually shift your teeth into place.
Invisalign in Essex MA is one of the options available for those who want to straighten their teeth in a different way. This treatment is comfortable and removable. One of the key features that patients love about it is that it uses clear plastic which is more discreet than brackets and wires.
When you undergo Invisalign treatment, you will be given a set of plastic aligners custom-fit for your teeth. You will need to wear these aligners for at least 22 hours a day, taking them out only when you eat or brush your teeth. Every two weeks, you will need to switch to a new set of Invisalign aligners until your treatment is complete.
Benefits of Invisalign in Essex MA
#1 – Clear aligners are custom-fit for your teeth.
Invisalign in Essex MA uses clear plastic aligners that are custom fit for your teeth. This means that you will be getting a treatment that is specifically designed for your own smile.
At BOP Braces, we also use computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) to create your custom Invisalign aligners. A mold of your teeth will be used to create a digital model of your smile. This digital model will then be used to create your Invisalign aligners.
This technology allows us to create Invisalign aligners that are precise and fit well. It also allows us to show you a virtual representation of how your smile will look after Invisalign treatment, so you can see the results even before starting treatment.
#2 – You can remove your aligners to eat, drink, and brush your teeth.
Invisalign in Essex MA is a removable teeth straightening treatment. This means that you can take out your Invisalign aligners to eat, drink, and brush your teeth. If you find braces a little harder to clean or eat with, you may consider Invisalign as another option.
Being able to remove your Invisalign aligners also means that you can brush and floss your teeth more easily. This can help reduce the risk of cavities and gum disease, as well as keep your breath feeling fresh.
If you want to eat hard or sticky foods, you also don’t need to worry about damaging your aligners since you can just take them out. Despite that, you need to make sure to brush and floss before putting them back in.
#3 – Invisalign can straighten teeth in as little as 6 months.
The average length of treatment with Invisalign is about 12-18 months, but some patients may only need to wear Invisalign for as little as six months. This will depend on the severity of your alignment issues.
During your initial consultation, we will be able to assess your teeth and let you know how long Invisalign treatment will take. Shorter treatment time can also mean lower costs compared to a lengthier Invisalign treatment. If you have mild to moderate alignment issues, Invisalign in Essex MA may be the right choice for you.
