Invisalign® is an ideal tooth straightening alternative if you’re looking to forego the more cumbersome and unappealing traditional metal braces. Invisalign treatment utilizes removable, invisible braces to move your teeth to the preferred positions over 12 to 18 months. Since they’re removable, Invisalign aligners offer greater comfort and flexibility compared to fixed braces. You need not alter your diet or dental hygiene habits when you’re undergoing Invisalign treatment.

Invisalign aligner braces can treat various bite problems, including gaps in teeth, overbite, crossbite, underbite, and open bite. Misaligned teeth can negatively impact your ability to chew and speak and are also detrimental to your self-confidence.
Our Invisalign dentist starts by evaluating you to determine your suitability for Invisalign treatment. For severe misalignment cases, we may combine other interventions, such as surgery, with Invisalign treatment for best results. Using these insights, our dentist creates a custom treatment plan for you.
Next, the dentist takes digital x-rays and your dental impressions and shares these with the Invisalign lab team. The Invisalign lab technicians create custom, comfortable aligners from high-quality, proprietary, medical-grade thermoplastic.
There is a relatively short waiting period of approximately four weeks, during which our dentist and the Invisalign lab exchange notes and collaborate in the creation process.
Invisalign aligners come in a series. Our Wellesley, MA dentist will give you a set of 3 to 4 aligners at a time—enough to last between visits. You are required to come for checks and monitoring every six to eight weeks, during which our dentist gives you a new set of aligners.
If you haven’t achieved your desired smile at the end of the treatment period, our dentist may request additional trays, known as refinement trays.
Just like with conventional metal braces, it’s crucial to wear a retainer after Invisalign treatment to prevent orthodontic relapse. Relapse is where the teeth shift back to their old pre-treatment positions.
