woman smiling with straight teethYou might feel self-conscious about your teeth. Lax retainer habits as a teen may have led to tooth shifting as an adult, and now you don’t want to go through the hassle of having braces again. Newton Dental Associates is proud to offer Invisalign as an alternative to metal braces, offering a safe and quicker way to an improved smile.

How Invisalign Can Help You

When undergoing Invisalign treatment, you will be given sets of clear aligners at your dentist’s office. Each set will be worn for one to two weeks before being replaced with the next set, which will be slightly different from the previous set. The trays encourage movement, about 0.2 millimeters every few weeks. Because the trays are continuously being switched out, you’ll be seeing results in less than one year! Invisalign trays are removable, so you can take them out to eat, brush and floss your teeth. You don’t need to work around burdensome wires and brackets to keep your teeth clean, which will keep your teeth healthier and reduce the risk of gum disease.

 Benefits of Invisalign

Besides keeping your teeth bright and allowing you to keep your gums healthy, Invisalign can boost your confidence! Patients who have completed Invisalign have said that their new smile makes them look and feel years younger. Your straightened teeth will boost your self-confidence, leaving you beaming all day. Keeping your gums healthy have additional overall health benefits. Poor gum health has been linked to heart problems and strokes. Traditional braces make it difficult to reach your gums and give them proper care, even when incorporating mouthwash and floss picks. Invisalign allows for thorough brushing and flossing.
