Invisalign® Clear Braces – Whitinsville, MA
Invisible Orthodontics Personalized for Your Smile
Have you been wanting a straighter, more beautiful smile, but been avoiding treatment due to the unattractive appearance of metal braces? If so, we have the perfect solution: Invisalign clear braces. Instead of uncomfortable, noticeable brackets and wires fixed to your smile, we offer an easy to use, effective, and borderline invisible alternative. Read on to learn more about Invisalign in Whitinsville.
How Invisalign Works
Unlike metal braces that are permanently fixed to your smile, Invisalign utilizes a series of clear, removeable plastic aligning trays that gradually shift your teeth into place. Each aligner represents a different stage in the series, and you’ll wear each tray 20 to 22 hours a day, for about 2 weeks. After around 8 to 16 months, you’ll complete your treatment, and we’ll give you a retainer to maintain your results. Throughout the process, you’ll visit our office so Dr. Tubo or one of our other experts can ensure that your treatment is going smoothly.
Indications for Invisalign
We use Invisalign to treat a variety of common orthodontic issues, including:
Having teeth that are too close together affects your appearance, but it also makes it more difficult to care for your smile. Tooth decay and gum disease become risks when plaque and bacteria can’t be cleaned away. Thankfully, Invisalign creates needed space for easy brushing and flossing.
Spaces Between Teeth
A gap in your smile may cause you to hide your teeth in public, however this space can also become home to lingering food debris and plaque that eat away at your teeth and gums. However, Invisalign can push these teeth together for proper alignment and a beautiful smile.
Bite problems put pressure on the jaw joints, causing discomfort and dysfunction in some cases. However, it also leaves you more susceptible to teeth grinding and the wear that comes with it. Invisalign can correct overbite, underbite, and crossbite to prevent these issues.
Benefits of Invisalign Orthodontics
Invisalign offers a wide range of unique benefits like:
- Appearance: Made of clear plastic, Invisalign is incredibly discreet, allowing you to smile in your professional and social lives without feeling self-conscious.
- Comfort: Invisalign’s smooth plastic makes the wearing experience incredibly comfortable, avoiding the irritation that metal brackets and wires cause.
- Treatment time: Typically, patients will achieve the straight smile of their dreams in 18 months at the most, which is still months shorter than traditional braces.
Cost of Invisalign
No two smiles are the same, which is why it’s difficult to receive a precise estimate for your Invisalign. The only way to know the price of your treatment with certainty is to visit Dr. Tubo, our expert cosmetic dentist in Whitinsville, for a consultation. He will carefully examine your smile before providing a personalized treatment plan that includes the overall cost.
