Braces can do great things. A smile that you previously hid can turn into one that you can’t wait to share with the world. However, many people would rather hide the fact that they’re wearing braces and who can blame them? A mouthful of metal doesn’t exactly make for an entirely attractive or professional first impression. But now with Invisalign® Boston residents can have the best of both worlds: clear braces that are far less noticeable and a smile that is becoming noticeably straighter with each passing week.
Are You a Candidate for Invisalign?
Like traditional metal braces that use brackets and wires to straighten teeth, Invisalign can correct a number of alignment issues. Have teeth that are crooked or rotated? Invisalign clear braces will gently move them into place. This practically invisible orthodontic system can also correct an overbite, underbite, and crossbite and close up the space between teeth that have wide gaps.
Unlike traditional braces, however, Invisalign requires an important commitment: you have to wear them for the braces to work. For most patients, treatment time is somewhere between 12 to 24 months. During this time, Dr. Share will expect you to wear your Invisalign braces for at least 22 hours everyday. You can remove them for the infrequent special occasion, but otherwise the outcome of your treatment depends on your dedication to wearing your aligners consistently.
Advantages of Invisalign
The obvious advantage of Invisalign clear braces is that they are not obvious. Another advantage is that they can be removed when you want to eat or brush and floss your teeth. People who wear traditional braces often need to eliminate certain foods, such as popcorn, carrot sticks and chewy candies because these can dislodge a bracket. With Invisalign, you can eat whatever you like. And you’ll be able to attend to your oral hygiene as usual while wearing Invisalign, so there’s less risk of developing cavities or gum disease.
Getting Invisalign in Boston
As a certified Invisalign provider, Dr. Share works closely with the Invisalign lab and technicians to create a treatment plan made just for you. With the aid of photos, x-rays and impressions, your aligners are custom fabricated to move your teeth into proper alignment step-by-step. As you progress from one set to the next, you’ll begin to see your teeth straighten and your smile will brighten.
