Straighten your teeth without braces

Braces. Just the word alone can conjure feelings of dread and fear, but it doesn’t have to be that way! It may seem hard to believe, but it is possible to get straight teeth without braces. Invisalign is the answer to the dilemma of wanting straight teeth but not wanting a mouth full of uncomfortable metal braces.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a teeth straightening treatment that offers an effective alternative to traditional metal braces. The trays are clear and nearly undetectable when worn. Invisalign trays are comfortable to wear and must be removed when you are eating, drinking, brushing and flossing.

Who will benefit from Invisalign?

Anyone who needs their teeth straightened or aligned will benefit from a consultation with Beverly, MA dentist Dr. Ben Polan. An experienced Invisalign dentist will be able to see if they would be a good fit for your individual needs.  Some of the dental issues that can be corrected with Invisalign are:

  • Gaps Between Teeth
  • Crossbite
  • Overcrowding
  • Overbite
  • Underbite

Patients of all ages have seen success with Invisalign. It does require a good amount of diligence and responsibility on the part of the patient, so it is best suited for adults and older children who have a greater level of maturity and will be able to properly care for their Invisalign trays.

Get the Invisalign benefits

People often think that straightening teeth is done solely to improve physical appearance, but there are actually many health benefits to orthodontia. Patients who suffer from sleep apnea, back and neck issues, or TMJ migraines often see improvement once their teeth are put into correct alignment.

Improving one’s appearance thanks to straighter teeth is a huge benefit of Invisalign. Older children and teenagers will be able to enter their young adult years with their heads held high and the confidence that a beautiful smile brings. Many Invisalign patients are adults who have been self conscious of their smiles for years; sometimes even decades.

Dr. Benjamin Polan specializes in treating patients with Invisalign in Beverly, MA. His commitment to staying at the forefront of dental techniques and technology helps patients to get the smile they’ve always wanted.

Have a Perfect Smile with Braces

Perfect smiles are often a source of envy for those of us who didn’t receive braces at a young age. We often believe that braces are no longer an option and that they might have too big of an impact on our current daily lives. In actuality, more and more adults are opting for perfect teeth and adult braces.

Why braces?

Various things can cause your teeth to become crooked or your jaws to be misaligned, including: crooked or crowded teeth, overbites or underbites, incorrect jaw position and disorders of the jaw joints. If left untreated these problems can become more serious, resulting in tooth decay, gum disease, headaches, earaches, and speaking, biting or chewing problems. Orthodontic techniques and technology have advanced significantly within the last decade. It not only takes less time until you can show off that perfect smile, but it’s a much less noticeable process.

Procedures

Orthodontic procedures are complex processes which is why it’s important to see a dentist such as Dr. Benjamin Polan. In most cases, the dentist will need to make a plaster cast of the individual’s teeth and perform full X-rays of the head and mouth. After orthodontic appliances are placed, they need to be adjusted from time to time to ensure that they continue to move the teeth into their correct position. Retainers are used following the braces to ensure that the teeth remain in position.

Aesthetic and Comfort Issues

Advances in technology have vastly improved appearance issues with braces. Today they are made from extremely lightweight and natural-colored materials. The braces are attached to the teeth via a bonding agent, which is completely removable after the process. Since orthodontic appliances need to be regularly adjusted they can create pressure on the teeth and jaws. This mild discomfort will quickly subside following each adjustment.

Hygiene issues around kid and adult braces in Beverly, MA

People who wear braces must be diligent in ensuring that food particles and other debris do not get trapped in the network of brackets and wires. Daily oral hygiene such as brushing, flossing and rinsing are a necessity. Some people with orthodontic appliances can benefit from using water picks, which emit small pressurized bursts of water that can effectively rinse away such debris.

Questions?

You and your child are probably going to have all sorts of questions on when to best obtain the braces, how long the process will take, and of course if they’ll affect school pictures. If you need more information about kid or adult braces, Beverly MA dentist Dr. Ben Polan has the answers. His primary goal is to make sure that nobody is left in the dark and that everyone is at ease during all stages of the process.
