For decades, traditional metal braces have been the standard solution for smile and bite realignment. However, not everyone necessarily needs (or wants) to use metal braces to straighten teeth, especially if they only have mild to moderate levels of realignment to address. With clear aligners from Invisalign in Manchester, Dr. Golparvar and his team can create a customized series of trays that address your specific concerns. Call our dental office to see if Invisalign from our Manchester, NH dentist is right for you!
Each pair of clear aligners you wear is designed to represent a different stage of your realignment. Wearing the aligners for at least 22 hours per day over the next two weeks allows them to apply gentle amounts of pressure to specific teeth. As you move from pair to pair, your teeth are eventually moved into a straighter position, effectively removing gaps, crowding and misalignment. After you’ve finished your series, you’ll need to wear a retainer to keep your teeth in their positions, especially for the first six months to a year.
Since each person’s smile is unique, the length of treatment can vary from patient to patient. However, Invisalign delivers seamless results in an average of 12 to 18 months, which is considerably less than traditional metal alternatives! The best way to get the beautiful results you deserve in record time is to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours a day (unless instructed otherwise by our dentist in Manchester) and dental office good oral hygiene throughout your treatment. That way, dental problems, like cavities and gum disease, don’t interrupt your timeline.
Invisalign treatment is perfect for those who either do not want to make radical changes to their appearance with metal braces or believe that treatment would be too uncomfortable. Since the trays are removable, you can easily enjoy the same foods you always have and continue your oral care routine, rather than have to relearn it. With transparent materials, no one will even notice that you’re going through treatment, other than your dental team of course!
For over two decades, Invisalign has helped millions of patients of all ages achieve their smile goals. While serious dental concerns, like rotated teeth or severe bite issues, require traditional orthodontic treatment, Invisalign can help patients with:
