Discover the benefits of getting Invisalign in Fitchburg, MA.
Just because you are an adult doesn’t mean that you can’t and shouldn’t have the straight smile you know you deserve. Nothing is more beautiful than a perfectly even and symmetrical smile, and now that smile can be yours thanks to our Fitchburg, MA, dentists, Dr. Yasmine Hassan and Dr. Islam Dehis. If you are an adult or older teen that wants to fix their crooked smiles, then you’ve come to the right place.
Invisalign is a unique orthodontic system that uses clear, plastic aligners instead of metal brackets and wires to shift and move teeth around. Every two weeks you will replace your aligners with a new set. Over the course of your treatment you will gradually see incredible changes in the alignment of your smile.
In order for Invisalign to work, our Fitchburg, MA, cosmetic dentist will need to take impressions of your mouth. From there we will use computer technology to help map out which teeth need to shift throughout the course of your treatment and exactly how much they need to move to achieve the final results. From there, an Invisalign lab will create your unique series of aligners that will apply just the right amount of pressure to the appropriate teeth to slowly move them into the ideal position.
Of course, in order for Invisalign to be successful you will need to wear your aligners as much as possible throughout the day. One of the amazing benefits of Invisalign treatment is that you can remove your aligners. This means that you can take them out before eating and you can still enjoy all of your favorite foods without any restrictions. Plus, it makes brushing and flossing your teeth so much easier while undergoing orthodontic treatment; however, it’s important that you are wearing your aligners whenever you aren’t eating, brushing or flossing. This equates to wearing your aligners anywhere from 20 to 22 hours daily.
