Invisalign

Have you been living with the embarrassment or discomfort of a crooked or misshapen smile?  Would you like a way to straighten out your teeth without the necessity of wearing metal braces.  Oakwood Dental Arts of Shrewsbury specializes in Invisalign, a form of invisible braces that straighten your teeth in a discrete and effective manner.

Invisalign invisible braces are clear, removable aligners that are placed over your teeth and straighten them over time.  There are a number of reasons why patients choose Invisalign over traditional metal braces.

Invisalign braces are invisible.  Unlike the traditional metal commonly used, Invisalign is made of clear plastic plates.  If you do not feel comfortable with the idea of wearing traditional metal braces, Invisalign could be the option you have been waiting for.  Let Invisalign straighten your teeth while going virtually unnoticed.

Invisalign is considerably more comfortable than metal braces.  Metal braces have several sharp wires that can irritate the insides of your mouth and cut the inside of your cheeks.  Invisalign, however, are made of smooth plastic to ensure your ultimate comfort.

Invisalign invisible braces are also removable, which makes eating and brushing your teeth much easier than it would be with metal braces.  Because metal braces are glued to your teeth, patients are often advised to avoid certain foods that can become lodged within the wires of the braces.  Metal braces also make it considerably harder to brush and floss your teeth because there are pieces of metal glued over the better part of your tooth.  This can often lead to tooth discoloration, tooth decay, and gum disease.  With Invisalign invisible braces, you simply remove the aligners before you eat and brush your teeth, and place them back on as soon as you are finished.  Invisalign makes it hassle-free to enjoy your favorite foods and maintain your periodontal health.

Invisalign invisible braces straighten your teeth before your eyes.  Our dentists will custom-design your aligners based on your specific teeth and will intricately plan the movement of your teeth so that you can obtain your straightest smile possible.  Invisalign’s plastic aligners will gently shift your teeth little by little based on the movements your dentist has planned for you.  Approximately every two weeks you will replace your aligners with new ones until your straightening is complete.  Oakwood Dental Arts is your Shrewsbury Invisalign specialist, so call us today!
