Chances are you’ve already heard about Invisalign treatments at our Back Bay dental office; but you might not think it’s right for you. Is Invisalign all that it’s really cracked up to be? The truth is – yes! The benefits of Invisalign allow us to provide gentler dental care and customized dentistry in a way that conventional braces can’t.

Invisalign braces are….

With Invisalign, you can take your alignment trays out during meals and for oral hygiene purposes. That means you can eat literally anything you want without having to worry about whether or not it will damage your orthodontic treatment. When you brush, you’ll never have to worry about oral hygiene aids to access the plaque around brackets on your teeth, because there are none! You’ll find it easier to keep your mouth cleaner, your breath fresher, and avoid complications like demineralized white spots on your teeth.

The custom molded fit of clear Invisalign braces mean there are no rough wires, brackets, or appliances to irritate your lips and cheeks. Every alignment tray snaps comfortably over your teeth until it’s time to be replaced with the next aligners in the series. This prevents the need for uncomfortable adjustments in a dental office, leaving you with hours of discomfort afterward. Surveys show that Invisalign is more comfortable than any other type of orthodontic method.

Since no adjustments are needed, Back Bay Dental Care Invisalign patients enjoy fewer, shorter appointments. We send several sets of aligners home with you at a time, so that you can progress your treatment at home. Every 2 or 3 months we will perform a quick assessment to ensure that your treatment is advancing as planned and then send you home with additional alignment trays.
