Invisalign® Clear Braces – Buzzards Bay, MA

The Discreet Way to Straighten Teeth

Traditional metal braces are a tried and true method for correcting orthodontic problems. However, many adults shy away from them because they are quite noticeable; they do not always mesh well with a professional image. Invisalign®, on the other hand, is a remarkably discreet treatment. It has the potential to straighten your teeth, correct bad problems, and close unsightly gaps — all without the use of metal brackets and wires.

Why Choose Canal Side for Invisalign®?

How Invisalign® Works

When teeth are exposed to sustained pressure, they move. Invisalign® applies such pressure though the use of a series of custom-made clear aligner trays. The trays are designed to fit your unique oral structures. You wear each tray for about two weeks, for 20 – 22 hours each day, before you graduate to the next one. After you work your way through all of the aligners, your teeth should be in their ideal positions.

Throughout your treatment period, you must visit our office for periodic Invisalign® checkups. At these brief appointments, we will assess the progress of your treatment and provide you with the next few aligners in your series. After your treatment is complete, we will provide you with a retainer to help you keep your teeth in their new positions.

Indications for Invisalign®

Invisalign® can address a number of orthodontic issues, including:

Crowded Teeth

Teeth that are too close together are difficult to clean and are more prone to breakage. Invisalign®, along with a possible extraction or two, is often able to correct overcrowding.

Spaces Between Teeth

Large gaps between the teeth are unsightly. Invisalign® may be able to close those spaces, thus providing you with more attractive teeth.

Bite Alignment

If your top and bottom teeth do not fit together properly, your misaligned bite can lead to serious issues, including TMJ discomfort and damage to your teeth. In many cases, Invisalign® is able to correct overbite, underbite, and crossbite.
