Invisalign Clear Aligners
Discreet Orthodontic Care in Brookline, Newton & Greater Boston
It’s a commonly held belief that straight, white teeth and a radiant smile will do wonders for your self-confidence, sex appeal, and your personal and professional image. Beyond this, a straight smile is also better for your health. Crowded or widely-spaced teeth can make it difficult to keep your teeth and gums clean, putting you at greater risk of tooth decay and gum disease, in addition to increasing risk for problems in the rest of the body.
If you’re a busy professional, traditional bracket and wire braces may seem like they’re out of the question because of how they might affect your image and take up too much time. That’s why Dr. Sasson’s Brookline dental office is proud to offer clear alignment tray orthodontic options using traditional Invisalign® and Invisalign Go. With alignment tray braces, patients can straighten their smiles comfortably, with a series of custom-made, clear aligners that are as effective for most patients as traditional bracket and wire braces.
If you want to learn more about achieving a flawless, functional smile, call the Boston Smile Center to schedule an orthodontic consultation appointment in our Brookline dental office. We’ll review your specific situation and partner with you to create a personalized treatment plan to achieve the picture-perfect smile of your dreams.
How Does Invisalign® Work?
Your clear Invisalign® aligners will be made just for you by the Invisalign® lab, with each set designed to bring your teeth one step closer to their ideal position. There are absolutely no wires or brackets. Instead, you’ll just wear each set of clear aligners for approximately two weeks all day long except when eating, brushing, or flossing your teeth.
Because they are removable by the patient—just like a retainer, athletic mouthguard, or nightguard — Invisalign® aligners can be taken out to eat, brush, and floss. They can also be taken out for special events, and they just slip them back on when you’re done.
Invisalign® treatment doesn’t have any brackets or wires, so you don’t need to make numerous office visits to have anything tightened. Instead, you’ll just need to come in about every four to six weeks, so Dr. Sasson can check your progress. Straightening your smile with Invisalign® often takes 6-12 months. With our accelerated orthodontics option, we can shorten your treatment time by almost half. During that time, you can rest assured that you’ll finally have the smile you’ve always dreamed of without sacrificing your professional image, putting your social life on the backburner, or giving up on the foods you love.
How Does Invisalign Go work?
For patients with minor to moderate alignment needs, like mild tooth positioning concerns, crowding, or gaps between teeth, Invisalign Go offers a faster treatment option. This system is fully integrated with our iTero digital scanner. We can seamlessly scan your current bite and use our chairside computer to plan every step of treatment. Then, the digital scans are sent directly to our Invisalign lab where your full series of alignment trays are crafted. Throughout the treatment process, we will be able to carefully monitor progress and adjust treatment with the minimal number of dental office appointments.
