Invisalign®

Invisalign® clear aligners prove that effective orthodontic treatment doesn’t have to be difficult. These ingenious appliances have helped millions straighten their teeth and achieve better-looking smiles, and they can help you too.

Invisalign® Clear Aligners in Chemlsford, MA

Invisalign® clear aligners are an innovative orthodontic treatment option that provides a discreet and convenient alternative to traditional braces. These custom-made aligners are crafted from a transparent, medical-grade plastic material, making them virtually invisible when worn.

Invisalign® aligners gradually and gently shift teeth into their desired positions, effectively treating a wide range of orthodontic issues such as overcrowding, gaps, and misalignment. One of the key benefits of Invisalign® aligners is that they are removable, which makes it easy to maintain good oral hygiene and enjoy all your favorite foods without any restrictions.

Only remove the Invisalign® aligners for eating, drinking, and cleaning. Initially, they may feel tight, but they will start to loosen and become more comfortable after a few days.

With regular progress checks and adjustments, Invisalign® treatment provides predictable and precise results customized to each patient’s unique dental needs. Experience the confidence of a straighter smile with the comfort and flexibility of Invisalign® clear aligners.

  • How much is Invisalign®? 

    According to Invisalign®’s website, the cost for this treatment is similar to the cost of metal braces. Costs can vary, depending on:

    • Insurance coverage. Most insurance plans cover Invisalign® the same way they cover metal braces. It is rare that insurance will cover Invisalign® for purely cosmetic reasons, but each case is different.
    • Length/complexity of treatment. With Invisalign®, you get new clear aligners every couple of weeks, so the cost varies, depending on if your treatment requires more (or fewer) aligners.

    If you have any financial questions, please contact our office and we will be happy to discuss your insurance coverage or additional payment options available.

  • How does Invisalign® treatment work?

    To begin, we will take photographs of your teeth and face, dental impressions of your teeth, and x-rays. Those records are sent to Invisalign® with detailed instructions on how we want the final result to appear. Invisalign will scan the impressions to create a 3D model of the teeth and work with your dentist to get the mold to its exact proportions. Once final, the trays are made and mailed to your dentist’s office. You will wear a set of trays for two weeks at a time for approximately 2 years, or the length of time determined by your dentist.

  • Invisalign® vs. braces—what’s the difference?

    There are many differences between Invisalign® and braces, we’ve listed some of the largest ones here. Ultimately, the decision is up to you, but the introduction of Invisalign to the market introduced a more efficient, less painful way to straighten teeth.

    • Materials. Invisalign® uses clear transparent aligners, while braces use wires and brackets.
    • Removability. Invisalign® aligners can be removed by the user at any time, while braces can only be removed by a professional.
    • Food Restrictions. Invisalign® allows a user to eat whatever they would like and not make changes to their oral care practices, while braces restrict what the user can safely eat and require special maintenance and care.
    • Injury Risks. Invisalign® aligners do not present any injury risks, while braces can lead to cuts and other injuries.
    • Visibility. Invisalign® aligners are nearly impossible for others to notice, while braces are almost impossible to miss.
  • What are the advantages of Invisalign®?

    Most people are excellent candidates to use Invisalign® clear aligners as an alternative to traditional braces.
    Clear aligners may not be a suitable choice for extensive orthodontic cases where significant movement of your teeth is needed. Some may also choose fixed braces because there are no trays to lose.

    Invisalign® is a great option for:

    • Indiscreetly straightening your teeth
    • Still being able to enjoy foods that are “off-limits” with traditional braces
    • Easily cleaning and brushing your teeth
