Crowded Teeth – South Hadley, MA

Fix Your Crowded Teeth with Invisalign

Not everyone is born with a naturally straight smile. In fact, few people have the smile they want. Tooth crowding, gaps, and other alignment concerns not only influence your self-esteem but your oral health as well. In the past, the only way to resolve the complications was with metal wires and brackets. Now, you have an alternative solution with Invisalign in South Hadley. You can enjoy a nearly invisible treatment using clear plastic aligners to move your teeth.

Problems with Crowded Teeth

When you look in the mirror, you may think the only issue with crowded teeth is your aesthetic concerns, but this is not true. It also impacts your oral health. Your teeth are harder to clean effectively when they are not in their correct positions. This increases your risk of tooth decay and gum disease. You also suffer a heightened risk for dental emergencies. Resolving your alignment concerns protects your oral health and allows you to invest in your self-esteem.

How Does Invisalign Fix Crowded Teeth?

We take a digital impression of your mouth to create a 3D model to map the movement of your teeth using clear braces in South Hadley. The information is fabricated to a series of custom-fit aligners that are worn over your teeth for at least 22 hours per day to gradually move them into position. You switch to the next aligner in the series every week. On average, it takes about 12 months to finish the treatment; however, complex cases of overcrowding may require longer. You will need a retainer at the end of your treatment to prevent your teeth from moving back into their previous positions.
