Want A Straighter Smile Without Braces?

Invisalign Methuen, MA | Windham NHThe idea that one could get straighter teeth without having to wear bulky metal braces was once a “pie-in-the-sky” sort of wishful thinking. Today, more and more people realize that this preference is available, and may work for their needs. At Kalil Dental Associates, we are pleased to provide patients with the discreet orthodontic option they desire, Invisalign. When you visit our Methuen or Windham office, your orthodontic treatment can be our little secret!

Invisalign is More than Clear Braces

Clear braces are real. They are a method of orthodontia that mimics the standard protocol, only with tooth-colored wires and brackets. While clear braces are more discreet, for sure, they aren’t the total package that many patients are looking for. This is because of the presence of brackets, and the fact that those sharp edges can cause discomfort is a big problem. Invisalign goes beyond the need for a natural appearance.

There are several advantages to the Invisalign system beyond the fact that you cannot see any brackets or wires – because there aren’t any! Some of the additional reasons why patients prefer this method of straightening teeth include:

  • They have freed from dietary limitations thanks to removable trays.
  • Brushing and flossing are not challenged by orthodontic appliances.
  • Many cases are completed more quickly than with alternative methods.
  • Treatment is completed with fewer visits to the dentist’s office.

Which of these advantages sounds most appealing to you?

Candidates for Invisalign

One of the biggest misperceptions about the new way we straighten teeth is that the Invisalign aligner method is purely cosmetic. Cosmetic braces are intended to straighten only the teeth at the front of the mouth. Invisalign is a full-mouth system that has been widely used to correct a variety of orthodontic problems, including:

  • Gaps
  • Overcrowding, even overlapping
  • Bite issues including overbite, crossbite, and underbite.
