Do you have misaligned or crooked teeth and wonder what you can do about it?  Have you considered veneers but determined they're not the right fit for you?  Have you considered braces but feel you’re too old for traditional orthodontic treatment or fear how they’ll alter your appearance or impact your daily life?  If you answered yes to any of these questions, Invisalign orthodontic treatment from Martins Dental Partners in Beverly, MA may be just what the doctor ordered.

Invisalign is a modern, invisible and painless approach to straightening your teeth. Using advanced digital orthodontics, a series of custom-made aligners created just for you gradually shift your teeth into the desired location leaving you with a beautiful, straight smile.

The Invisalign Process

The process starts with a free consultation.  The consultation is an opportunity for you to speak with one of the doctors at Martins Dental Partners to discuss your goals and the options available to you, including Invisalign.  If you determine Invisalign is the right choice for you, the dentist will take x-rays, photographs and impressions of your teeth.  Then, the dentist will create a 3D image and detailed treatment plan which helps you to understand the entire process, from start to finish.  Finally, the dentist will order the full set of custom-made, clear invisible trays specifically for you.  When the trays arrive you simply begin wearing each set of aligners, typically for two weeks at a time, and watch your teeth move gradually until they’ve straightened into final position.

A Convenient Approach to Straightening Your Teeth

Wearing Invisalign clear aligners, made from medical grade polyurethane won't hurt or result in sore gums the way traditional braces sometimes do.  Switching to a new tray rarely causes pain or headaches. And of course, your dentist will be with you every step of the way to ensure a comfortable process and successful outcome!

Because Invisalign aligners are removable, you can continue to enjoy your favorite foods without fearing that food will get stuck on your braces and brush & floss as you normally would. The best part?  Most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth!

Are you too embarrassed to wear metal braces? You can straighten your smile without hiding it. Invisalign is the clear alternative to metal invisalignbraces. Dr. Valerie Martins, Dr. Sukhpreet Heer, and Dr. Suzanne Fisher at Martins Dental Partners in Beverly, MA, offer a complete range of General and Cosmetic Dental Services including Invisalign.

Here are some reasons to consider Invisalign:

  • Invisalign is Comfortable- While traditional braces are effective in repositioning the teeth, they can be uncomfortable to wear and they can irritate your gums. Invisalign aligners are made from a BPA-free thermoplastic material. The aligners are smooth and comfortable to wear, so you will be able to wear them for 20 to 22 hours a day without much effort. 
  • Invisalign is Removable- Invisalign aligners are not only comfortable to wear, they're also removable. Invisalign will straighten your teeth without the restrictions that come with traditional braces. With metal braces, you may have to avoid eating certain foods because they can become stuck in your braces. With Invisalign, you will be able to eat all your favorite foods and brush and floss as you normally would.
  • Invisalign is Invisible- You can straighten your teeth without a mouthful of metal. Many individuals love the fact that Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible. There are no metal wires or brackets and nobody will notice that you're wearing them, making Invisalign perfect for your lifestyle. Plus, since your dental visits during treatment won't involve wire or metal adjustments, you'll likely spend less time in the dentist's chair.

Millions of people from across the globe have straightened their smiles with Invisalign. Perhaps it's time you joined them? Remember, a better life starts with a beautiful smile!

Most people dealing with crooked or misaligned teeth want to do something about it but often feel like they are too old for braces. If this is invisalignthe case this doesn’t mean that you just have to deal with gaps in your smile or crowded teeth. In fact, our Beverly, MA dentists, Dr. Valerie Martins and Dr. Joseph Whitney, have a simple and easy solution for treating your malocclusions without needing traditional metal braces: Invisalign.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a series of clear, flexible aligners that are custom-made just for you to fit over your teeth. Each aligner is specially designed to move your teeth into the proper position over the course of your treatment. By controlling both the force and timing of tooth movements Invisalign can give you a straighter smile. Before you even get your aligners our Beverly general dentists will map out which teeth should move and exactly how much they should move for each aligner you wear.

What problems can Invisalign treat?

Invisalign is a great option for people dealing with everything from minor to more serious issues. Invisalign can treat these common problems:

  • Protruding teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Crossbites
  • Open bites

How long will I wear Invisalign?

How long your treatment takes will depend on a lot of different factors including how severe your dental problem is. On average, most adults will wear their Invisalign for around 12 months. Teens who choose to get Invisalign may have a longer length of treatment.

What are the benefits to wearing Invisalign?

Since these aligners are almost completely invisible you can enjoy a more comfortable treatment with less irritation than you would if you were wearing traditional metal braces.

Also, since aligners are completely removable you can still eat whatever you want throughout the course of your treatment and you can easily remove your aligners prior to brushing and flossing your teeth. It can be frustrating to have to brush and floss around metal wires and brackets, but you won’t have to with Invisalign.
