Metal braces have been used to straighten and secure teeth for many years and are still popular today because of their reliable results. As well as that traditional method does its job, it still leaves a lot to be desired. Metal braces require extra care and can cause speech and eating difficulties. What’s more, they tend to stand out, making the wearer feel self-conscious. At Newburyport Family Dental, we realize the problems this can cause for our patients—especially adolescents who may draw unwanted attention from their peers. Modern dentistry has given us revolutionary Invisalign, which straightens your teeth and corrects bite problems through discreet clear braces.
The Obvious Advantages of Invisalign

Results That Are Clear to Be Seen
Invisalign works through aligners made of clear, highly durable plastic. When you come for an appointment, Dr. Reczek will take impressions of your teeth so that your aligners can be custom-made to fit you perfectly. On a follow-up visit you’ll receive your customized aligners and can begin using them immediately. Offering the strength of metal braces without the appearance, these aligners slip over your teeth and will stay firmly in place while you speak. You wear them for up to 22 hours per day, including during sleep, removing them only for eating, brushing, and flossing. Others won’t even notice that you have aligners in, and after a time you may even forget they are there! Follow all the guidelines given to you by Dr. Reczek, and your aligners will gradually shift your teeth into their correct upright positions, giving you the straight, spectacular smile you desire. No more crooked or misaligned teeth!
