Certified Elite Invisalign Provider in Marlborough, MA
Consider Invisalign treatment to get the beautiful straight teeth you've always wanted — without braces. Schedule complimentary consultation at our office, to determine if Invisalign clear aligners are right for you.
What is it?
Invisalign treatment uses a series of virtually invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that allow you to smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign clear aligners are made with 3D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective. More than 70% of orthodontists in the US and Canada are certified to administer Invisalign treatment.
You may be a good candidate for Invisalign if you have minor discrepancies in your bite or alignment of your teeth. You will need to be responsible with wearing your aligners as prescribed and maintaining good oral hygiene throughout your treatment.
Why would I want it?
Not only are the aligners virtually invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also more comfortable than traditional braces, with no metal or wires, which also usually means you spend less time at our Marlborough, MA office getting adjustments. Invisalign treatment also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
How does it work?
You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to their final positions. You'll visit Metrowest Dental Center about once every four to eight weeks so we can ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. We constantly update photos and X-rays, and we make sure that you are satisfied with your progress every step of the way.
Total treatment time can last from six months to two years, and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary depending on your unique case.
After treatment is completed, you will need to wear a retainer to prevent your teeth from moving again.
