Invisalign®: Achieve a Perfectly Aligned Smile at any Age
Invisalign® has grown significantly in popularity over the last few decades. Read on to learn all about this effective and discreet orthodontic treatment and why it’s great for any age.

When it comes to options for straightening your teeth, more and more people are choosing Invisalign® due to the fact that it’s more comfortable and discreet than traditional braces. 

Invisalign is the brand name of clear and removable aligners that are made up of a flexible material known as SmartTrack. They move the position of your teeth and jaw gradually and safely.

Whether your teen is ready to have their smile perfected or you’re an older adult in need of realigned teeth, Invisalign is a great option. That’s why Nasrin Sadeghi, DMD, and Medha Singh, BDS, DMD, MS, and the rest of our team at First Dental Associates, located in Reading, Massachusetts, offer Invisalign to help anyone achieve their smile goals. In this blog, we discuss everything you need to know about this orthodontic treatment.

The benefits of Invisalign 

Invisalign can correct a number of dental issues, including misaligned bites (malocclusions) like overbites, underbites, and crossbites; gapped teeth; and crowded teeth. All of this can be done without the visibility of the brackets and wires that accompany traditional braces.

These are some of the other benefits that Invisalign has to offer:

  • Time: Invisalign takes only 6-18 months to complete
  • Comfort: Invisalign is made out of smooth material that won’t irritate your mouth
  • Appearance: Invisalign blends in with your teeth to be discreet
  • Convenience: Invisalign is removable for brushing and eating

All of these factors make it a great and effective alternative to traditional braces.

How the Invisalign process works

At your first appointment, our team performs a thorough dental exam and cleaning before taking digital impressions of your teeth that are uploaded to the Invisalign software. The Invisalign lab then creates your personalized plan and sends your custom-made aligner trays.

In order to be effective, you must wear your trays 20-22 hours per day and have them changed out every 2 weeks while also coming to see our team every 4-6 weeks for check-ins. While every person is different, you should start to see noticeable improvements within 6 months. 

Next steps

If you’re ready to achieve your best smile with straight teeth and an aligned bite without the hassle and inconvenience of wires and brackets, Invisalign could be for you. No matter what stage of life you’re in, it’s an effective orthodontic solution.
