The end to bulky, painful braces is finally here. Invisalign has changed the way we straighten teeth and it’s a solution that many people are choosing. But before agreeing to any type of braces it’s best to have your questions answered. Many orthodontic treatments can straighten teeth but is Invisalign right for you? Your dentist in Westborough offers Invisalign and wants you to be informed before you decide.

Can I Still Eat Whatever I Want?

Yes! The Invisalign tray is removed prior to eating so you can still enjoy all your favorite foods. Never eat with the tray in as you could damage it. Avoiding sticky foods can be helpful too unless you are going to brush after eating. Sticking to water or clear liquids to drink when your tray is in will help to keep your tray stain free.

Do I Change How/When I Brush My Teeth?

No! The great thing about Invisalign is that you can remove the tray prior to brushing. You can’t do that with traditional, metal braces. You can still brush and floss normally but there will be one additional task added to your brushing routine. You will have to spend some time cleaning your removable tray. Your dentist in Westborough will tell you the proper products to use.

Can I whiten my teeth while using Invisalign?

Yes! Invisalign allows you to whiten your teeth. Having brilliant white teeth while straightening with Invisalign trays is possible. Dentistry in Westborough gives you options such as at-home or in-office treatments. You can have bright white teeth throughout your entire straightening session.

Am I Too Old for Invisalign?

No! Invisalign is recommended for patients aged 18 and up. The ‘up’ means you can enjoy the benefits of Invisalign if you are any adult age.

Dentistry in Westborough is easy to find and most offices would happy to provide you the latest innovations in the dental industry.
