Invisalign is known for being the nearly invisible solution to misaligned teeth and misshapen smiles. This orthodontic treatment has revolutionized smile straightening, offering an alternative to metal braces that involves the use of clear plastic instead. If you’ve always wanted to straighten your teeth but want to avoid braces, you may want to explore the option of Invisalign from Mark Fried, DMD in Framingham, MA.
What is Invisalign?
p> Invisalign clear braces are made from hard plastic, which is formed into aligners that fit over your teeth to transform the position of your bite. Each tray in the series of aligners is a little different from the one before it, which facilitates change in the shape of your smile. Invisalign can help with a variety of orthodontic problems, including overbite, underbite, crowding, and gapped teeth. For some, Invisalign is a cosmetic solution for problems that disrupt feelings of self-confidence. For others, Invisalign can correct bite problems that contribute to TMJ pain, dysfunction, and oral health problems. People like Invisalign because it’s smooth and removable, improving patient comfort over the course of treatment. They also like that the aligners are clear, making Invisalign a more visually appealing option than traditional braces.
How Long Will Invisalign Treatment Take?
Total treatment time generally takes between 9 and 15 months, depending on the severity of your case.
