Invisalign Clear Braces for AdultsSay yes to a straighter smile no matter your age!

Whether you’ve just started college or you are a working professional, we know that you want to have a smile you can feel confident in; however, if your smile is crooked or misaligned you may feel like your self-esteem has taken quite a hit. Luckily, our Milford, MA, dentists Dr. Peyman Beigi and Dr. Nina Raeisian offer a clear and nearly invisible way to finally get a straighter smile that won’t require wearing any metal brackets or wires.

What is Invisalign?

When people picture braces they often think about traditional braces, which are bonded to the front of your teeth; however, dental technology and treatments are constantly advancing and improving, and our Milford, MA, general dentists now offer a different and subtler way to shift and move teeth into their ideal position.

This system is known as Invisalign and it uses clear, custom-molded aligners that fit over your teeth in the same way that a mouthguard does. Each aligner is made from transparent thermoplastic that is designed to fit snugly against the teeth so they are less visible when you talk or smile.

What problems can Invisalign treat?

Invisalign is an ideal option for older teens and adults whose teeth have stopped growing. This orthodontic treatment is able to handle a variety of dental problems from minor changes to more serious misalignments. Invisalign is ideal for those dealing with,

  • Overbite: When the upper teeth overlap the lower teeth
  • Underbite: When the lower teeth overlap the upper teeth
  • Crossbite: When the arches of your teeth do not align with one another
  • Open bite: When upper and lower teeth do not touch when biting down
  • Crowding: When teeth overlap one another
  • Gapped Smiles: When there are spaces between teeth

If your smile requires more complicated tooth movements or jaw realignment then Invisalign might not be the ideal and most effective orthodontic option.

Are you an adult who is looking to get a straighter smile in Milford, MA? If so, you’ve certainly come to the right place. Our dental team here at Milford Dental Group is ready to sit down with you and discuss your candidacy for Invisalign. Call us today at (508) 966-7923 to schedule a consultation.

Learn more about how this unique orthodontic treatment actually shifts teeth

There is a reason Invisalign has become a more and more popular way for both teens and adults to get a straighter smile without needing to wear metal braces. Instead of your Milford, MA dentists, Dr. Peyman Beigi and Dr. Nina Raeisian, adhering metal brackets invisalign and wires to your teeth, you’ll get a series of clear, retainer-like aligners that are custom-fitted to go over your teeth. Find out how Invisalign actually works to reshape smiles and whether it’s right for you.

How Does It All Work?

As we mentioned above, Invisalign is made up of a series of nearly invisible aligners. Once you get your aligners, you will wear each one for about two weeks. After the two weeks are up, you will take out your aligners and replace them with the next set in the series. As you start to replace your aligners, you should also see a little shift in your teeth every few weeks. These little shifts will continue until they have achieved the perfect position.

Invisalign aligners are removable, which makes it convenient for eating whatever foods you like or brushing and flossing your teeth each day. Unlike with traditional braces, none of these habits have to change one bit. Of course, your end result will also depend on how often you wear your aligners. As your Milford, MA Invisalign dentist will tell you, these aligners should be worn anywhere from 20 to 22 hours each day. You can remove them when you want to eat something, but remember to rinse them out and place them back in immediately after.

Each aligner has been custom-designed by us to move certain teeth a designated amount. Both the force and the timing of the force are determined by your Invisalign aligners, which we have mapped out in your treatment plan before your aligners were even created.

Invisalign is a wonderful way to get the smile you’ve always wanted without years of metal braces. If you are ready to find out if Invisalign is right for you, turn to Milford Dental Group in Mildford, MA today.
