Transform your smile with orthodontic braces in Maine
Are you ready to improve your confidence and self-image? If so, you can have the smile of your dreams with orthodontic treatment at the Maine Center for Dental Medicine. Dr. Khan offers the Invisalign treatment to address misalignment and give patients a straighter smile.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign helps patients achieve the smile of their dreams with a series of comfortable, clear, and removable aligner trays. The custom set of trays works to gradually move teeth into proper alignment for a better bite and a straighter smile. Aligners are worn for about 22-23 hour each day and can be removed for eating and daily oral hygiene.
In addition to straightening the teeth, Invisalign can also help maintain oral health and prevent gingivitis or periodontitis. Teeth that are crowded, particularly the lower front teeth, can be very difficult to clean properly. By using Invisalign to straighten your smile you can improve its appearance and health!
Candidates for Invisalign
Dr. Khan uses Invisalign to treat patients of all ages, from teenagers to seniors. It can address a variety of alignment issues including underbite, overbite, overcrowding, crossbite, or wide spacing. The most important aspect of Invisalign treatment is compliance. Patients must be committed to wearing the aligners at all times unless they are eating or cleaning their teeth. Follow-up appointments are scheduled every 4-6 weeks to monitor progress.
Caring for your aligners trays
Dr. Khan will provide instructions on how to care for your aligner trays. At least once each week the trays will need to soak in a special cleaning solution. We’re always happy to share any tips from other patients on keeping your aligner trays clean and in great condition.
