About Invisalign

Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that offers an alternative to traditional metal braces. Unlike braces, which use brackets and wires to move the teeth, Invisalign consists of thin, clear, removable aligners that fit directly onto the teeth. The aligners are almost impossible to see when worn, and you take them in and out to eat, drink, brush, and floss. You’ll switch to a new set of aligners every two weeks, and with each new pair, your teeth move closer to a beautiful new smile.

How Does Invisalign Treatment Work?

The Invisalign treatment process is a simple, convenient way to straighten your teeth. It starts with a consultation, during which your Marlborough orthodontist will perform a comprehensive evaluation of your bite and smile. After diagnosing any orthodontic problems, your orthodontist will create a detailed treatment plan and break it down into two-week steps. Based on this plan, we’ll have your own set of Invisalign aligners custom-manufactured to fit your mouth. You’ll wear each pair of aligners 22 hours a day for two weeks before switching to a new pair, and once you finish with your final set of aligners, you’ll have a beautiful, healthy new smile that’s yours to keep!

Benefits of Invisalign

Because of its unique construction, Invisalign comes with a number of advantages over more traditional treatments like braces. Some of the benefits of Invisalign include:

  • Almost Invisible: When you wear Invisalign, the transparent aligners fit directly onto your teeth. This makes them almost impossible to see from the outside, meaning no one has to know you’re getting orthodontic treatment!
  • Eat Anything: With traditional braces, you have to monitor your diet and avoid foods that are too hard or sticky. But because you take your aligners out to eat, you can still enjoy all your favorite foods during Invisalign treatment.
  • Simple Oral Hygiene: Brushing and flossing with braces requires special tools like floss threaders, but because you remove aligners to perform oral hygiene, you can brush and floss just like normal.
  • Improved Comfort: Invisalign aligners are smooth to the touch, so they won’t cause the tiny cuts and scratches in your mouth that braces can.

Invisalign Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How much will I wear my aligners?

You’ll wear your aligners pretty much constantly, or about 22 hours a day. The only time you’ll take them out is to eat, drink, brush, and floss.

Q. Will my aligners affect my speech?

Most patients go through a small adjustment period where the aligners have a minor impact on speech, but you can expect this to fade within a week.

Q. Who is a candidate for Invisalign?

Just about anyone! Invisalign can work for earlyadolescent, or adult orthodontic treatment. The only requirement is that you have healthy teeth and no gum disease before starting treatment.

Q. Does insurance cover Invisalign?

Insurance policies vary widely, so whether or not Invisalign is covered depends on the specifics of your policy. That said, our office is more than happy to work with you to find out how much coverage you’re eligible for.Insurance policies vary widely, so whether or not Invisalign is covered depends on the specifics of your policy.
