Attractive, comfortable features make Invisalign a perfect complement with holistic practice in Maine
Misaligned teeth pose more than cosmetic concerns. It can negatively affect how you chew food, speak, and even breathe. Misalignment and problems with bite, may also be to blame for bad breath, receding gums, sensitivity, and chipping.
The Maine Center for Dental Medicine restores the beauty of your smile, and your ability to eat and speak comfortably and confidently.
The many aesthetic and health benefits of Invisalign make this modern alternative to conventional braces a perfect fit with The Maine Center for Dental Medicine’s focus on holistic wellness.
Instead of using a system of hard, silver-colored wires and brackets to straighten teeth, Invisalign’s series of smooth, BPA-free plastic aligner trays incrementally shift teeth into proper positions. These dental appliances don’t irritate gums and teeth the way wires and brackets might.
Likewise, Invisalign aligners are removable. Conventional braces are fixed. Only your dentist can remove or adjust them. With Invisalign, the trays may be taken out when necessary, as long as they are worn daily for the number of hours prescribed by Drs. Imam or Khan.
Unlike silver braces that can appear very obvious, the aligners are discreet because they are made from a clear plastic. Every couple of weeks a new aligner tray will be worn to correspond with your customized treatment plan. Invisalign requires minimal office visits scheduled at roughly six-week intervals so the dentist can assess your progress.
