Invisalign® is the Clearest Choice for Your Dream Smile

If you have crooked teeth, gaps in your smile, or a misaligned bite, perhaps you’ve considered traditional braces in the past and decided they weren’t for you. Invisalign in Holbrook and Scituate, MA could be the solution you’ve been seeking for the straight smile of your dreams. Pearl Dental Associates owner Dr. Teresa Salem’s passion for clear braces goes back to when she treated one of her foster sons and saw the positive effects it had on his life. Since then, she has helped countless adults and teenagers straighten smiles the clear way with Invisalign. While the process is similar to traditional braces, Invisalign uses a series of custom-made, clear plastic aligner trays that gently shift your teeth into place without unwieldy metal brackets and painful wires that require tightening. Invisalign aligners are customized to wear over your teeth and their appearance is so subtle, no one will notice you’re wearing clear braces unless you tell them!

Who is a Good Candidate for Invisalign?

Clear aligners are a potential alternative to traditional braces for some tweens and teens with malocclusion, overbite, or underbite. Invisalign requires a greater level of responsibility than traditional braces because they’re removable. In order to ensure effective and timely outcomes, a patient must be compliant and wear them as directed. If you have gum disease or cavities, these issues must be resolved first, while more complex bite issues likely need to be treated with other methods.

Invisalign vs. Regular Braces

When you choose Invisalign in Scituate and Holbrook, MA, you’ll get all the benefits of traditional braces without any of the downsides. Conventional braces can cause pain, discomfort, mouth sores, injuries, tooth decay (from inadequate brushing and flossing), plaque buildup, tooth discoloration, tooth/bracket breakage, and difficulty eating. With Invisalign, you may experience mild discomfort when you start wearing each new set of aligners. This can be easily managed with ibuprofen or acetaminophen.

Invisalign offers a wide array of benefits, including:

Crooked Teeth Impact More than Your Pearly Whites

Although Invisalign is clearly the most discreet and comfortable way to straighten your smile, it provides far more than cosmetic benefits. Research from the American Dental Association has shown that crooked teeth can damage your dental and overall health. Because it’s harder to brush and floss, this increases the risk of food debris getting trapped between tooth crevices, which can lead to formation of bacterial plaque. When plaque hardens into tartar, this can cause cavities as well as gingivitis, the earliest stage of gum disease. If gum disease progresses unchecked, this can have a negative impact on your systemic health. Protruding upper and lower teeth may rub together in a manner that prevents normal jaw alignment, impacting your bite and ability to chew food, while also causing uneven enamel wear, chips, and cracks. Bite issues can have a cascading effect and lead to teeth grinding, clenching, and headaches and jaw pain associated with temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ).

After you’re finished with one set, you’ll move on to the next in the series. Each new set of aligners gently shifts your teeth in the appropriate direction.
