Invisalign – West Brookfield, MA
Get a Straight Smile with Clear Aligners
Your smile is influential in your self-esteem. Unfortunately, few people are born with one that’s naturally attractive. Besides discoloration, chips, or cracks, the positioning of your teeth can also impact the appearance of your smile. Not to mention, alignment and bite issues can harm your dental health and your quality of life. If you’re embarrassed by rotated, crooked, or gapped teeth, you can get the healthy, beautiful smile you deserve without brackets and wires. Invisalign in West Brookfield is a patient-preferred solution because it moves your teeth using nearly invisible clear aligners.
How Invisalign Works
Traditional braces use brackets and wires to pull your teeth into position. Although this is effective for even the most complex cases, they are noticeable and there are several disadvantages. Invisalign resolves many of the common complaints about metal braces.
Our in-office orthodontist takes digital impressions of your mouth to map the movement of your teeth using state-of-the-art software. The information is transferred to a series of clear aligners that are worn over your teeth for at least 22 hours per day. Each aligner applies continual pressure to your teeth to gradually move them into position. Although every treatment differs, most patients are finished with their series in about 12 months.
Indications for Invisalign
Crowded teeth increase your risk of cavities and gum disease because it can be difficult to effectively remove bacteria and plaque. Invisalign creates more space to improve your smile and your oral health.
Gaps Between Teeth
Your bite can lead to uneven wear on your enamel and jaw pain. Invisalign can correct several bite issues, like an overbite, underbite, or crossbite.
Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign provides several benefits that aren’t possible using traditional metal brackets and wires, including:
- Improved confidence because no one will know you’re wearing the aligners.
- Comfortable because there aren’t any brackets or wires irritating the inside of the lips and cheeks.
- Effective for correcting a variety of bite and alignment issues.
- Enjoy your favorite foods because the aligners are removable.
- Easy oral hygiene routine and aligner maintenance.
- Less time in the dental chair because you don’t need appointments.
- Results in as few as 12 months.
Cost of Invisalign
Depending on your individual needs, your Invisalign treatment might be around the same cost as metal braces. There isn’t a set price for the aligners because the cost is based on your specific treatment plan. We’ll provide you with an estimate during your initial consultation and discuss your payment options, like using your dental insurance or CareCredit.
