Discover how this nearly invisible aligner system could straighten your smile.Invisalign

 

You’ve decided it’s time to say goodbye to your crooked smile but maybe you are worried about getting braces as an adult. While more and more adults are choosing to get braces later in life, the idea wearing metal braces is not very appealing. Our Nashua, NH, dentist Dr. Robert LaRocque knows this, which is why we are pleased to offer a much more discreet solution.

How Invisalign Works

Instead of the bracket-and-wire approach that traditional braces take, Invisalign uses a set of custom-made clear aligners that are made specifically to fit over your upper and/or lower teeth. Since aligners are created based on digital images of your teeth, they will provide the proper force they need to shift teeth into the proper position.

Each set of aligners is designed to shift teeth a very specific amount over the course of the two weeks they are worn. After which, you’ll replace the current aligners for the next set of aligners in your plan. Over time, you’ll be able to see the wonderful changes that Invisalign is making to correct your smile.

Invisalign Candidates

Most people think that Invisalign can’t fix many dental issues, but this is simply incorrect. In fact, Invisalign can fix everything from minor to more serious misalignments. You may want to consider getting Invisalign in Nashua, NH, if you are dealing with:

  • Crookedness
  • Overlapping or crowding
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Crossbites
  • Open bites

If you are dealing with one of the above issues and want to straighten your smile then it’s time you talked to our Nashua, NH, general dentist about whether Invisalign is right for you. This treatment is also a great option for older teens and adults but isn’t ideal for children and young teens (whose teeth are still growing).

Certain misalignments that require intricate tooth movements or any pre-existing dental work (e.g. dental bridges) may make it impossible to get Invisalign. When you come into our office we will be able to determine whether or not Invisalign is the best choice for you.

Do you have questions about Invisalign? Want to find out if you are the ideal candidate for this treatment? Then it’s time you called our Nashua, NH, dental office to schedule an orthodontic consultation with us.
