Invisalign Clear Braces in Bangor, ME
Do you have troublesome crooked teeth or a misaligned bite? Are you dissatisfied with the appearance of your crowded teeth? Problems like these are not only a cosmetic issue – they can negatively affect your health. Crowded or crooked teeth can make brushing and flossing difficult, leading to an increased risk of tooth decay or periodontal disease.
For orthodontic treatment, we offer our patients Invisalign. Invisalign is a leading orthodontic treatment that is convenient and effective.
The first step toward a beautiful, healthy smile is scheduling a consultation with one of our Maine Family Dental Practice dentist Dr. Travis Buxton.
What Is Invisalign?
Your Maine Family Dental Practice dentist will evaluate the current state of your smile. A comprehensive plan for straightening your teeth will be mapped out by your dentist. According to this plan, a series of custom-made aligners will be designed just for you. You will graduate to a new set of aligners every two weeks. Each set will slightly reposition teeth by applying controlled pressure.
This system works to gradually shift your teeth into their ideal positions in a step-by-step manner. The end result is a beautiful smile with perfectly straightened teeth.
What Is ClearCorrect?
We also offer ClearCorrect Invisible Braces. This is an orthodontic system that incrementally adjusts your smile using clear aligners, similar to Invisalign. ClearCorrect aligners are clear enough to be almost invisible. Dr. Buxton is happy to discuss both of these options with you and help you decide which one is right for you.
Advantages of Aligner Straightening
Invisalign orthodontic treatment is effective in both teenagers and adults. Aligners are nearly invisible to the eye, so they may be a great option for individuals who are concerned about the appearance of traditional braces.
Is there a teenager in your life who could benefit from orthodontics but is hesitant to wear braces? Invisalign Teen may be your solution! Invisalign is also the favorite orthodontic treatment of adults who want to maintain their mature and professional appearance while also straightening their teeth!
Another advantage of Invisalign is that your aligners can be removed at any time, for example when you are brushing or flossing your teeth and during mealtime. The ability to remove aligners for brushing and flossing allows you to clean your teeth properly – a task that can be difficult with traditional braces. Being able to remove your aligners during mealtime means that there are no restrictions to what you can eat!
For the best results, you should wear your aligners at least 20 to 22 hours a day. Treatment is typically complete after about one year of using Invisalign.
