Professional And Experienced Invisalign Dentist in Boston
Needing orthodontic work doesn’t mean you are sentenced to a year or two of braces anymore. There are many adult braces treatment options available today for patients to choose from when they visit their orthodontist. For many patients, Invisalign is a viable treatment option. Invisalign treatment uses a series of custom aligner trays to straighten teeth.
Invisalign has become a popular treatment option for many patients due to its effectiveness and convenience. Invisalign treatment uses a series of custom-made, clear aligner trays to gradually and gently shift teeth into their desired positions. These aligners are virtually invisible and removable, meaning you can eat, brush, and floss as you normally would without the hassle of brackets and wires. Plus, you’ll spend less time in the orthodontist’s chair because Invisalign doesn’t require adjustments like traditional braces.

A Word About Invisalign
Invisalign can be an effective tool to straighten minimally crowded teeth over 1 to 2 years usually, although very simple orthodontic cases can be done in a shorter time in some instances. However, Invisalign is NOT ideal for rotated teeth or teeth that must be brought down out of the bone or intruded into the bone. Modifications and additions can make to the teeth, but with no firm anchorage on teeth, the amount of torque and force applied IS LIMITED, so there are many restrictions that are sometimes not evident until after the case has been begun. Many dentists begin with Invisalign and switch to regular braces after struggling unsuccessfully for months, and many patients quit Invisalign because they are not compliant with the wear regimen, which is most of the daytime and all of the nighttime. For this reason, we use Invisalign to treat simple cases only.
