If you want straight teeth, but aren’t interested in traditional metal braces, you can benefit from Invisalign®! Unlike traditional or clear braces using brackets and wires, Invisalign in Framingham, MA uses discreet clear aligners to straighten your teeth. These aligners are removable, so you won’t have to worry about what you eat or changing your oral hygiene routine. The greatest benefit of Invisalign, for most patients, is that treatment is virtually invisible and won’t hinder their social or professional lives. With certification in Invisalign orthodontics, our skilled dentists provide customized treatment with predictable results. We’ll help you find confidence in your smile with comfortable and effective Invisalign clear aligners.
The first step in your treatment process is taking images of your teeth with our intraoral scanner. We’ll use these images to map out your specific treatment plan and show you a digital representation of how your teeth will move. This software can help us determine how long your treatment will take and how many aligners you’ll need. We’ll send this information to the Invisalign lab where your custom aligners will be made. This entire process is digital to ensure a precise and comfortable fit.
You’ll receive a series of clear aligners customized to your teeth. Starting with the first aligner in the series, you’ll wear each one for about two weeks before replacing it with the next in the series. To ensure your teeth are constantly moving, we recommend you wear your clear aligners between 20-22 hours a day, only removing them to brush, floss, eat, and drink. You’ll return to our office every 6-8 weeks so we can monitor your progress.
With the discreetness and comfort of your clear aligner orthodontics, the treatment process will move quickly and before you know it, you’ll have no aligners left to wear! It’s time to reveal your gorgeous new smile! We’ll make sure your newly straightened teeth are healthy, then provide teeth whitening if you want your new smile to be extra bright. You’ll go home with a custom retainer to wear at night so your teeth stay straight for many years.
