I'm Dr. Samadani; I'm the orthodontist here at Dental Associates of New England. One of the things that we offer here is Invisalign treatment. Invisalign is a clear removal appliance that patients wear. They take it out to eat, so that lifestyle is the same. They take it out to brush and floss, so cleaning is really easy. It works similar to braces in that it moves teeth and straightens them out. Also in more complicated cases of fixing the bite, we can use it. Patients love the fact that nobody knows that they're in treatment. Moving teeth is usually a lengthy process; an average of a year for most patients. It's really great that during that time, it's not like people look at them and say they have braces on. They really have their lifestyle of going out to dinner and all that is the same, they just take it out, and they go to restaurants and eat normally; no one knows. Then they put it back in and their tooth is moving the whole time. Patients love the end result of Invisalign. Their teeth look great. Patients who've never smiled before, after treatment, smile all the time and they love it.
