What you need to know about Invisalign treatment
If you’ve been thinking about straightening your teeth with orthodontic treatment but you don’t like the way braces look or you’re worried about how long it will take, have no fear! You need Invisalign, the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth; best of all, with Invisalign it only takes 9 to 15 months to achieve a straight smile. Invisalign is quick, easy and comfortable. Your dentists at Riley Dental Associates in Boston, Massachusetts want you to explore what Invisalign can do for you.
Invisalign treatment involves clear plastic trays called aligners. Your dentists at Riley Dental Associates begin your treatment by providing your first set of custom-made aligners, which you will wear for 2 weeks. Then you replace your aligners with a new set, which you wear for another 2 weeks. You change to a new set of aligners every 2 weeks until your treatment is complete and your teeth are straight.
Your teeth will gradually and comfortably shift into position over a period of 9 to 15 months. You will visit your dentists at Riley Dental Associates every 4 to 6 weeks so they can check your progress. That’s it! There are no metal wires or brackets to irritate your mouth.
There are many reasons Invisalign is more patient-friendly than conventional braces. With Invisalign, you can count on:
- A high level of comfort because the aligners are smooth plastic
- Great cosmetic appeal because Invisalign is virtually invisible to you and everyone else
- A high level of convenience because you can take the aligners out when you want
- Greater satisfaction because you can eat the foods you love
- Better oral health because you can brush and floss normally, without using clumsy tools like floss threaders
Invisalign treatment can correct the same cosmetic and functional issues that conventional metal braces can, including crowded or unevenly spaced teeth, or a poorly aligned bite. You can now have a straight smile, quickly, comfortably and invisibly with Invisalign.
