Invisalign in Concord, NH
Have you considered straightening your teeth?
Braces are often considered a “rite of passage” for teenagers, and more adults than ever are looking into fixing their crooked, twisted, or overlapping teeth. One of the main reasons, however, that people don’t fix crooked teeth is the cost, discomfort, and hassle associated with traditional bracket and wire braces.
At White Park Dental, we have the solution. You may have heard of the “invisible braces” system known as Invisalign. This innovative technique uses clear plastic aligners to gently guide your teeth into the proper alignment. It’s a perfect choice for adults who need to maintain a mature and professional appearance and teenagers who are concerned about their looks or have a condition that doesn’t require treatment with traditional braces.
Do I Need to Straighten My Teeth?
We believe in practicing conservative dentistry with a preventive focus, and Invisalign is a part of that philosophy. While most people think of crooked teeth as a primarily cosmetic issue, the truth is that crooked teeth can actually lead to a number of significant dental health issues.
When your teeth are tightly crowded together, it’s easy for particles to get trapped in between them and it’s difficult for you to remove these with a toothbrush and dental floss. The same problem happens when your teeth overlap or are twisted. Even teeth with gaps can be problematic because food has a tendency to get caught in the gaps and remain there for longer than it should.
Over time, this trapped debris can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. Additionally, when your teeth aren’t properly aligned, it can cause your entire bite to become misaligned (a condition known as malocclusion). This can lead to excess pressure on your teeth, jaw pain, and even erosion.
Ultimately, the decision is yours, but we believe that it helps to know all the facts so that you can make an informed and empowered decision.
The Advantages of Invisalign
Our patients love Invisalign and how simple and convenient it is to use. Invisalign has several advantages over metal orthodontics, including:
- The clear, plastic aligners are virtually invisible once they are in place.
- You remove your aligners to eat, so your food choices aren’t limited like they are with braces.
- You also remove your aligners for cleaning, so you can brush and floss as usual without the hassle of working around brackets and wires.
- Fewer adjustments are needed, so you’ll spend less time in the dental chair.
- You don’t have to deal with the discomfort of tightening wires; instead, you’ll simply move to the next aligner in the series as prescribed by Dr. Harvey.
