Many people have to deal with issues involving the placement of their teeth within their mouth. This can be overcrowding, spaces between teeth, even a misalignment of the jaw itself. A Winchester family dentist or orthodontist can resolve many of these problems through the use of traditional braces. Another option in many cases is using the Invisalign system to be comfortably and discreetly fix the issue. Our office at Amherst Dental Practice can provide you with Invisalign to resolve problems with the spacing, function, and appearance of your teeth.

Invisalign uses a series of clear, comfortable-to-wear aligners to gently straighten teeth over time. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign is discreet and removable, so there are no restrictions to what you can eat or drink during treatment. Furthermore, the absence of wires and brackets means you'll have an easier time brushing and flossing during your treatment.
Patients receive a new set of aligners every two weeks. With each new set, the teeth will gradually move into the final position.
Invisalign can provide a solution for:
The total length of treatment varies from patient to patient, but typically is between nine and fifteen months. During treatment, patients will typically visit their dentist every four to six weeks to check their progress. It is important for patients to remember to wear their aligners as often as possible for maximum efficacy (20 to 22 hours per day, removing only to drink, eat, brush, and floss).
We understand that cost is an important factor when deciding on orthodontic treatment. The cost of Invisalign is comparable to traditional braces and is generally covered to the same extent by insurance companies. Be sure to carefully review your policy to determine whether you have orthodontic coverage. If you have any questions, feel free to contact our office.
One of the great things about Invisalign is that is a customizable solution to dealing with many issues. Since they are able to be taken out when you eat and placed back in, there is a level of convenience that traditional braces can’t offer. Dr. Gerald Brown can make sure that your clear braces system is properly set up for you to succeed. Our staff is committed to helping you benefit from our dental services. Amherst Dental Practice utilizes high-quality labs to make sure that your Invisalign and any other dental service is done by a trustworthy and competent technician.
