Straighten Your Smile Discreetly

Are you embarrassed by your crooked or misaligned teeth but feel self-conscious about wearing braces? If so, we have the perfect solution to straighten your smile. Invisalign teeth aligners are made from a clear, flexible material, so no one will ever know that you’re wearing them. The team at Great Meadows Dental Group, based in Bedford, MA, provides Invisalign straightening technology to our patients.

How do Invisalign Aligners Work?

You will first have a consultation with your Bedford, MA, dentist so they can decide on the best plan for correcting the alignment of your teeth. Once you get your Invisalign clear braces, you will wear them for two weeks, allowing your teeth to move into place. Every two weeks, you will be fitted with another set of aligners so that your teeth will be gently moved into alignment over time.

Invisalign aligners are made from a clear acrylic material. They fit comfortably over your teeth and you can remove them when you eat, brush, and floss. This makes your oral hygiene much easier to manage than with traditional metal braces which cannot be removed.

How Long Will I Need Invisalign?

Most people find that their teeth are straightened within 10-18 months. How long your need Invisalign will depend on the condition of your teeth and gums as well as the extent of the correction needed.

Correcting misaligned teeth does not only benefit your smile and your self-confidence, but it also benefits your overall health by protecting your teeth from decay and gum disease.
