Types of Braces In Amherst and Bedford, NH


Invisalign aligner

These removable braces are a series of prescription appliances that are virtually invisible and work great to straighten your teeth comfortably. Because they are removable, you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment; plus, brushing and flossing are less of a hassle. The aligners are comfortable and contain no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment.

Seeing Dr. Diane for Invisalign treatment means your care is customized beyond the level of the software that designs the appliances. She is a Premier Invisalign Provider, which means you can count on her years of expertise.  You can be assured that your aligners have the correct prescription for the desired tooth movement at that time. This will help to ensure a successful result.
