How Invisalign can be used as an Alternative to Braces to Achieve a Beautiful Smile!

Invisalign Windham NHOrthodontics. Braces. Brackets. Wires. Metal.

When patients hear these words, they often cringe. While they may really want to achieve a smile that is better aligned and more attractive, they may not be excited about the opportunity of having traditional orthodontia placed over their teeth. Conventional braces bring to mind embarrassing names such as “metal mouth” or “brace face” which can bring about fears for even adults interested in enhancing their smiles. This is why the team at Kalil Dental Associates are excited to offer a solution known as Invisalign.

How Invisalign works

Many patients who hear about Invisalign are curious to know how the process works without the use of metal brackets and wires. Invisalign is a treatment that uses aligner therapy as an alternative to brackets and wires. Patients undergo a process of digital impressions which are then converted into a computer system and sent off to the Invisalign laboratory. A series of trays are made. Each tray is worn for two weeks before progressing to the next tray, and once patients have reached the end of their trays, they will have their perfectly aligned smile. Compliance is key to achieve the final results expected, and we encourage patients to wear their trays at least 20 hours a day to see these changes.

Why is Invisalign popular?

Many patients choose Invisalign because it allows them to achieve a more attractive appearance without having to undergo treatments that cover the smile for sometimes years in order to do so. Invisalign is clear and discreet, often unnoticed when patients are wearing their trays. It is also comparable in cost to traditional braces and allows patients the chance to brush and floss their teeth as they normally would, improving overall oral health and wellness at the same time.
