Do you want straighter teeth but don’t want the look of traditional metal braces? Luckily there’s a new solution available—clear braces from Invisalign.

Invisalign® in North Andover, MA

If you wish you could straighten your teeth without enduring the time, expense and inconvenience of wearing braces, we might have a solution for you. Dr. Schrader offers Invisalign, a comfortable and effective product that uses a series of invisible aligners. As you wear the aligners over the course of your treatment, your teeth will be moved to appear straighter. Created with 3-D computer imaging technology, the Invisalign aligners are customized to fit your teeth, and often no one will realize you’re wearing them.

Orthodontic treatment with Invisalign is capable of correcting most of the same alignment problems that have traditionally been the domain of traditional braces with brackets and wires. So, whether your teeth are crooked, off center, crowded or you have an overbite, crossbite or open bite, Invisalign clear braces for North Andover residents could give you the straight smile you’ve clearly always wanted.

Invisible Braces in North Andover

When you come to Dr. Schrader to discuss straightening your teeth with Invisalign, he will not only check to make sure you’re a qualified candidate, he will also carefully examine your teeth and gums for any signs of decay or gum disease. These will need to be taken care of before you can begin any kind of orthodontic treatment.

Then, the road to a straighter smile begins with a comprehensive set of digital x-rays, photographs and impressions of your teeth and your bite. In turn, the Invisalign lab uses these to develop a 3D image of your smile. With this, Dr. Schrader creates a treatment plan that he will use to show you exactly how your teeth will move even before you begin wearing your clear braces, North Andover. Many of our patients go into their treatment with a greater sense of confidence thanks to this preview. For the Invisalign lab, the treatment plan is the road map they’ll follow as they fabricate your customized invisible braces.

Your aligners will arrive at Willows Dental Group organized in sets—one for your upper arch of teeth and one for your lower arch. All you have to do is wear each set for about two weeks. And while Dr. Schrader will want you to wear your invisible braces for the better part of the day, because they are removable you’ll be able to conveniently eat and maintain your normal diet. You won’t need to eliminate certain foods as you would with traditional braces that have brackets and wires. In addition, you can continue brushing and flossing as usual, too, with removable Invisalign aligners.

As your course of treatment progresses, your teeth will gradually move into their proper alignment. With each set of aligners that you wear, your teeth gets closer and closer to giving you the straight and beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.

If you or anyone else in your family would like to consider straightening their teeth with Invisalign, then call Willows Dental Group. We look forward to partnering with you!
