The Invisalign Treatment

 

To begin the Invisalign process, you will need to speak with one of our dental professionals to secure a treatment plan of how your teeth will be changed and to take impressions. Impressions are taken of both arches of teeth, they are used to make official molds.

 Invisalign consists of a series of custom-made clear retainers made from the molds, the retainers are made of dental-grade plastic. Each set of retainers is to be worn for 2-4 weeks, during this time the retainers will be putting slight pressure on the teeth to move them into place. Once it has been 2-4 weeks, the set will be switched out for another to continue the progress. 

Predicting the exact time frame for Invisalign treatment depends on the severity of your teeth and what needs to be fixed. Generally, the Invisalign treatment lasts from 10-12 months. 

 

During Treatment

 

Invisalign is very popular among our adult patients at Beacon Dental Group due to the retainers being invisible. Most worry when needing orthodontic treatment that they will need to have traditional metal braces so they refuse treatment. With Invisalign, we are giving every patient the ability to change their smile while staying confident and professional. 

It is important while undergoing treatment, that the retainers are worn for a minimum of 22 hours a day only being removed to eat, drink, brush and floss. This is a major benefit when comparing Invisalign to traditional braces. Removable retainers allow better cleaning of the teeth and foods not to be limited. 

 

For all residents in the Boston, Massachusetts area we are offering Invisalign treatments at our office. If you have been considering orthodontic treatment, please come in and see us or give us a call so we can serve you!
