Invisalign®

Straight Smiles with No Wires Attached

The concept of orthodontic treatment for overcrowded or crooked teeth dates back further than the adoption of our Gregorian calendar! We’re happy to report that methods have been updated with educational and technological breakthroughs. Today, we can offer orthodontic options that are much more discreet, comfortable, and speedy. The benefits of orthodontic treatment certainly include increased confidence in your smile, but they don’t stop there. If you’ve ever considered orthodontic treatment, your Hanover dentist, Dr. Millery, can fill you in on the other advantages of a straight smile and help you along the journey!

Invisalign® - The Clear Alternative to Braces

The Benefits of an Aligned Bite

As we mentioned before, the concept of orthodontic treatment is not new. Throughout history, people have sought ways to correct the alignment of their teeth not just because straight smiles have undeniable visual appeal, but also because they’re easier to protect from infection and disorders that stem from an improper bite, such as TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder).

If you have teeth that are crowded, healthy habits like flossing can be more difficult. There are ways to work around crooked teeth, but the risk of bacteria being able to evade your floss and toothbrush to infect your gums or cause decay is still elevated. Additionally, if the way your teeth connect isn’t ideal for your jaw, you may experience TMJ dysfunction, which can cause painful symptoms like chronic headaches and migraines, myofascial pain that extends to your neck, shoulders, and even your back, and excessive wear on your teeth.

A healthy bite helps you chew food, speak, and smile without discomfort. If you weren’t born with one, we can help your bite shift with a treatment that’s improved the smiles and lives of over 5 million people and counting!

Introducing Invisalign®

Its reputation may precede it because of its popularity, but we’d love to provide you with more information on clear aligner therapy and the differences between treatment with Invisalign and traditional braces.

Invisalign continues to make improvements to their aligners and system in order to expand the number of people treatment can help. For most people that ask, the answer is “Yes! Invisalign can help!” There aren’t many cases too complex for Invisalign, but finding out if you’re a candidate begins with a consultation at Inspired Dental Care.

The Invisalign Advantage

Oh, we haven’t even gotten to the aspects of Invisalign treatment that patients rave about! Besides being virtually invisible when you smile, Invisalign is a preferred teeth straightening method for these reasons:

Aligners are removable, so you can keep eating your favorite foods and conducting your oral hygiene routines as usual.

Emergency visits for broken brackets are wires are removed from the equation.

The aligners you’ll wear are safe and durable, but also comfortable as each set is customized to fit your teeth and gumline perfectly.

Treatment times can be up to 50% shorter than they would be with traditional braces!

Invisalign Teen

Invisalign is the treatment of choice for teenagers, too! Think about it—they’re going through all sorts of changes already and don’t necessarily love the idea of attention on metal brackets and wires when they smile and laugh with their peers. Metal braces can even make playing sports more risky, and we don’t want anything slowing them down when it comes to their hobbies and extracurricular activities.

Of the 5 million people who’ve improved their oral health and smile confidence with Invisalign, 1 million of them have been teenagers. Invisalign Teen even comes with a guarantee—if you’re unsatisfied with treatment within the first six months, the switch to braces can be made at no additional cost.

Another benefit of treatment with Invisalign Teen are the compliance indicator dots on the clear aligners. The fading of the blue dot confirms they’ve worn them as prescribed, which is for a minimum of 22 hours daily. Invisalign aligners worn by adults and teenagers should only be removed for eating and hygiene routines—this will ensure predictability with your individual treatment plans.
