Levesque Dentistry is a Nashua, NH Invisalign Provider
Levesque Dentistry in Nashua is an Invisalign® provider. We provide Invisalign clear aligners to teen and adult patients looking for mild to moderate orthodontic treatments. Invisalign is often recommended as an alternative to traditional metal braces for the treatment of a range of dental health or cosmetic concerns.
Invisalign provides several benefits to oral health as well as the convenience of comfortable, removable retainers that gradually realign teeth. You can expect visible results in as little as a few weeks. Most patients complete Invisalign treatment in about one year.
Why Should You Straighten Your Teeth?
Straightening your teeth can lead to healthier gums, improved oral hygiene, and a decreased risk of abnormal wear. Crooked teeth are not only more difficult to clean, but can be the underlying cause of bite problems and TMJ-related disorders.
A straight smile also boosts your sense of confidence in your appearance, something that can have a positive impact on your daily life in many ways. If you are an adult who is experiencing relapse and tooth movement after previous orthodontic treatment as a child or teen, Invisalign can be a great solution for restoring a smile that is looks and feels good.
Real Patients, Real Results
“Dr Keith and the Levesque Dentistry staff were incredibly knowledgeable and helpful in making my Invisalign treatment a success. I never once felt unsure of the process and enjoyed my time in the office. I highly recommend Levesque Dentistry if you are considering Invisalign. The treatment was worth it and the staff was the icing on the cake”~ G Stratton
The Invisalign Process
The Invisalign process will begin with impressions, taken using a digital handheld device for convenience and comfort. These images are then used in conjunction with the Invisalign CAD/CAM software to create a detailed treatment plan for your smile. We will send this information to the Invisalign lab and they will return a custom-made set of clear aligners that will gently reposition your teeth.
You will be required to wear the aligners up to 22 hours a day, changing them out every couple of weeks as your new smile emerges. The aligners can be removed easily for eating your favorite foods and daily oral hygiene. Invisalign offers some additional benefits that make treatment preferable when compared to traditional metal braces:
- Clear, invisible aligners are discreet- no one has to know you are wearing braces
- Removing aligners for dental care and hygiene enables patients to maintain a clean and healthy smile during treatment
- Aligners are made of a smooth material that does not irritate the gums and soft tissues of the mouth as wires and brackets do
Once treatment is complete, typically in 12-18 months, we recommend the use of a retainer to maintain your straight, new smile.
How quickly do teeth move with Invisalign?
Invisalign is one of the fastest options for correcting crooked teeth. Patients typically begin to see results within 2-3 months. Patients must remember that everyone responds differently to treatment and be patient while waiting to see results from their Invisalign treatment.
What will happen if I don’t wear my Invisalign for 22 hours a day?
In order for Invisalign to work at its projected rate, patients should wear their corrective aligners for at least 22 hours per day. Failure to wear the aligners for 22 hours may result in longer or failed treatment.
Can a dentist use Invisalign to widen your smile?
Invisalign can be used to widen your smile. Invisalign aligners are used to shift teeth position and widen smiles and jaws if necessary. To widen your smile, the clear aligners will be specifically created to shift your teeth wider until the desired result is achieved.
What can you not do with Invisalign?
Patients with Invisalign should be sure to clean their teeth and aligners after eating and drinking. They should avoid playing with and chewing on their aligners, as this can alter their shape.
Should I drink through a straw with Invisalign?
We recommend that patients with Invisalign consume liquids through a straw. Your teeth and your Invisalign will have less contact with the drink if you use a straw. This can prevent food particles from sticking between your teeth and the aligners.
Should you brush your teeth before putting Invisalign back in?
We recommend brushing your teeth before putting on your Invisalign aligners after each meal or drink to avoid staining and decay. You may also brush and rinse the aligners before putting them back in your mouth.
