Four Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign is rapidly becoming the most requested orthodontic treatment for patients that live in or work near Marlborough MA. Invisalign is a clear, virtually invisible thermoplastic aligner system that gives the wearer the ability to remove the appliance when eating, brushing, or flossing. Dr. Deborah Himelhoch of Smiles in Framingham is experienced and knowledgeable in providing orthodontic treatment with Invisalign near Marlborough MA.

Invisalign is a series of clear plastic aligners that are created by your orthodontist to gradually move your teeth into their correct position in your mouth. Using 3-D technology, Dr. Deborah Himelhoch is able to prescribe a treatment plan and even preview with you the results at the end of treatment.

Four Benefits of Invisalign in Marlborough MA

1. Virtually Invisible. Because Invisalign is made out of a thermoplastic material, it is almost invisible. You will be the only one who knows that you have something in your mouth that is adjusting your teeth and improving your smile. Invisalign has no metal brackets or wires that may irritate the wearer’s mouth. 

2. Completely Removable. Traditional metal braces are attached to the surfaces of the teeth securely until the course of treatment is complete. Invisalign is completely removable and can be taken out for convenient cleaning, brushing, and flossing. There are no restrictions on your diet as there may be with . Patients with traditional metal braces must avoid foods that are extremely sticky or hard. Patients with Invisalign clear aligners, however, do not have to change their diet because Invisalign aligners are removed by the wearer every time they eat. It is also easier then to brush your teeth and keep your mouth fresh and clean with Invisalign. Dr. Deborah Himelhoch recommends patients that live in Marlborough MA that Invisalign aligners be worn consistently and only taken out for meals, brushing, and flossing.

3. Faster Treatment Time. Patients with Invisalign usually experience a shorter orthodontic treatment time than those with traditional metal braces. Each treatment plan depends on the individual patient and how much work they need to have done. Most patients with Invisalign wear it for a year or a year and a half, while patients with typically have them on for a year-and-a-half or two years.

4. More Comfortable Than Traditional Metal Braces. Invisalign patients report less discomfort than with traditional metal braces, because there are no metal wires and brackets to break and irritate the inside of your mouth.

Typically this disappears within the first 12 hours after changing sets.
