Welcome back to the Dores Dental blog!
Fall has definitely arrived in Longmeadow, MA. The colors are brilliant. People are busy. And everyone is smiling, on the sunny days at least.
Of course, if you have a smile that’s bothering you, this could be a time when you feel embarrassed or self-conscious rather than invigorated.
If that sounds like your situation, you owe it to yourself to find a solution.
This is because your smile is the first thing people will notice about you. It can be the key to your success both professionally and socially.
Whatever needs to be addressed, we want to work with you to transform your smile into something you are proud to share with the world.
If crooked, overcrowded or gapped teeth are what bothers you most, our Longmeadow, MA dental team can remedy that with an Invisalign orthodontic treatment plan.
Times Have Changed
Back in the day, folks with a misaligned smile could only find a solution in metal brackets and wires that would be installed to forcefully pull their teeth into a better-looking row.
The process would take 2-3 years, and you would have to come in every month for an adjustment. Plus, you would need special tools to clean your braces and remove all the food that they trapped.
We don’t want to give the impression that conventional braces don’t work, because they do get the job done.
But they may not be the ideal solution for adults who are professionally active.
We have found that most grown ups are not going to want to go through such an ordeal, which is why we have something better to offer in our Longmeadow, MA dental office.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a straightening system that corrects misaligned teeth using a series of clear, removable mouthpieces called aligners.
They aren’t exactly braces though they perform the same essential function in a more discreet manner.
These aligners are more akin to whitening trays that slide over your teeth, except that each Invisalign aligner is customized to fit your mouth perfectly and guide it towards a more ideal placement.
You will be happy to know that they are also designed to be taken out any time you need to do so.
This means that they are not going to collect food particles like metal braces would.
They also won’t disrupt your life.
You can remove them quickly for eating and for cleaning and then get back to whatever you were doing.
They fit snugly over your teeth, providing a much more comfortable treatment process, and there won’t be any bleeding or sores.
Perhaps the best part is the timetable.
As we alluded to earlier, conventional braces can take 2-3 years for an adult to complete treatment, while the average Invisalign treatment time is only a matter of months.
And while your treatment is moving forward, you won’t have to visit the orthodontist every month for adjustments. You will just switch out your aligners at home according to a pre-made plan.
By the time we are finished, you will be amazed by your new smile!
