At Westbrook Dental, we are excited to offer our patients state-of-the-art orthodontic technology, including Invisalign® near Deep River, CT. Instead of metal braces affixed to your teeth, Invisalign straightens your teeth using a series of clear, removable aligners. You wear each set of aligners for two weeks, then discard them and move on to the next set. Invisalign is a great option to maintain your lifestyle and straighten your teeth without anyone noticing!
To start the Invisalign process, we take impressions of your teeth, which are used to create customized aligner trays made just for your unique smile. Each aligner represents the next stage in your teeth’s movement. You wear the clear plastic trays on your teeth for 20 to 22 hours per day. Little by little, the aligners shift your teeth until you have a beautiful, straight smile!
Invisalign has advantages over the wires and brackets of traditional metal braces. Metal braces can cause you to feel self-conscious about your smile and may also cause pain and discomfort as they rub against the inside of your mouth. With Invisalign, the smooth plastic aligners cause no irritation. You simply pop your aligners on and go about your regular day.
Unlike semi-permanent braces, Invisalign aligners are removable. This means you can simply remove your trays when you’re ready to eat or play. You don’t have to change your diet or avoid foods that could break or damage braces, and you’ll never have to worry about making adjustments when playing sports or instruments. This is the freedom you’ll enjoy with Invisalign!
With Invisalign aligners, you can brush your teeth and gums the same as always. You don’t have to spend time cleaning around brackets and wires where food and bacteria tend to get stuck. You simply remove the aligners to brush and floss, and you can clean your aligners at the same time by brushing and rinsing them before you pop them back on. Invisalign keeps it easy for you!
