At Westbrook Dental, we are excited to offer our patients state-of-the-art orthodontic technology with revolutionary Invisalign near Old Lyme, CT. Rather than metal braces attached to your teeth, Invisalign straightens your teeth using a series of removable clear, plastic aligners. You wear each set of aligners for two weeks, then discard them and move on to the next set.
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 smile you can flash proudly!
Invisalign has many advantages over the wires and brackets of traditional metal braces, which can cause you to feel self-conscious about your smile. Metal braces may also cause some pain and discomfort when 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. Plus, with Invisalign’s clear aligners, no one will even know you’re straightening your teeth!
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 avoid foods that could break or damage braces, and you’ll never have to worry about making adjustments in the way you play sports or instruments. This is the kind of freedom you’ll enjoy with Invisalign!
With Invisalign aligners, you can brush your teeth and gums the same way you did before your treatment process began. You simply remove the aligners to brush and floss, and you can also clean your aligners at the same time by brushing and rinsing them before you pop them back on. Invisalign makes it easy for you!
