If you are a candidate for Invisalign, the dental team at Cohasset Dental in Cohasset, MA could have you fitted for a new set of custom aligner trays in a relatively short period of time. Learn more about this orthodontic treatment, which has helped countless patients achieve a better-looking smile.
Invisalign: A Modern Orthodontic Solution
In the late 1990s, Invisalign was developed as a “clear alternative” to regular orthodontic braces. Up until then, patients who had even minor orthodontic problems had to wear metal braces to realign their teeth. With Invisalign, clear removable trays move your teeth gently into the right position. Thanks to a revolutionary computer modeling system, your dentist can see how your smile will look after the treatment period is finished.
Are You a Candidate?
You may be a candidate for Invisalign treatment by a Cohasset dentist if you have any of the following smile problems:
- There are small spaces between your teeth due to misalignment.
- A few of your teeth are slightly overlapping.
- The teeth are pointing in different directions.
- Overbite or overjetting teeth.
- Teeth are slightly turned or protruding out of position.
The main advantage of Invisalign is that it doesn’t interfere much with your daily life. When you’re wearing the trays you might even forget you have them on. They’re clear, so there’s no need to feel embarrassed when you smile in public. When you need to eat your food, just take them off for a short time. Invisalign also requires less of a treatment period compared to regular braces.
