Discover the unique benefits surrounding this clear orthodontic treatment.Invisalign


Are you a teen or adult who is contemplating getting braces? If so, you may be doing some research to figure out which braces are right for you. Luckily for you, you have options. Our Bedford, MA, dentists Dr. Nicholas Papapetros, Dr. Leo Kharin and Dr. Jessica Ristuccia are here to tell you more about Invisalign and what makes it unique from other orthodontic systems.

Fix a Multitude of Imperfections

If you are dealing with a mild-to-moderate misalignment in your smile then Invisalign could just be the perfect option for you. Invisalign is ideal for handling:

  • Crowding
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Malocclusions or “bad bites” (e.g. overbites; underbites)
  • Crooked teeth

Of course, even though Invisalign can address many different dental issues it won’t be able to handle more complex problems. In this case, our Bedford, MA, general dentist may recommend getting traditional braces to improve the efficiency of your orthodontic results.

Get a Subtle, Less Noticeable Treatment

We know that there are a lot of teens and adults out there who want to fix their smiles but are worried about metal braces. Luckily, Invisalign uses clear, plastic aligners that are custom-made to fit close to your teeth so they aren’t obvious to those around you.

Enjoy All of Your Favorite Foods

With traditional braces, you’ll have to be careful about what you eat, but not with Invisalign. You can easily remove your aligners prior to mealtimes, so you can enjoy all of the foods you love without having to worry. Of course, it’s always a good idea to limit sugar and other starchy foods or to brush your teeth immediately after before putting your aligners back in.

Your Oral Routine is Simple

Conventional braces can be a challenge to keep clean. Brushing and flossing around sleek, thin wires and brackets are enough to make anyone nervous. Luckily, Invisalign aligners are completely removable so you don’t have to change up your oral care routine at all (unless, of course, it needs it). And wearing Invisalign means that we can easily get your smile clean during your six-month checkups, too.
