A straight, beautiful smile is possible at any age, without metal braces. Invisalign aligners can straighten crooked teeth, close gaps and fix many bite alignment issues while offering comfortable, discreet treatment. Invisalign uses clear aligners that give you the orthodontic care you need without metal braces on your teeth. At Northampton Dental, we are happy to offer our adult and teen patients Invisalign for their orthodontic needs.
Invisalign aligners work like braces, without the wires and brackets that can affect your appearance and comfort. The clear plastic aligners are customized to your bite and fit over your teeth. Every few weeks a new set of aligners is prescribed to move your teeth toward their final position. The aligners can be removed when you eat, brush your teeth or floss. They are almost invisible, which is important for many adults that prefer to discreetly transform their smile. Adult treatments last about 12-18 months and offer excellent results.
Teens are notorious for their concern over their appearance. While many teens wear metal braces, most would prefer a clear, removable option. Invisalign Teen can fix many common alignment issues, with treatment lengths close to braces. Teens appreciate that they can still eat the foods they love without the restrictions that come with metal braces. They can pop out their aligners and enjoy most foods, brush, then put their aligners back in. Invisalign Teen aligners need to be worn about 22 hours a day, leaving time to remove them for meals and oral hygiene. The clear design gives teens self-confidence for their social activities, a big selling point with active teenagers.
