Benefits of Invisalign Aligners Over Traditional Braces

Featured Image

Your smile is central to who you are. It reflects your personality and mood, and it can build confidence in your appearance. However, if you have uneven or overlapping teeth, your smile may not bring you the joy it can. Fortunately, Wollaston Dental Group in Wollaston, MA uses Invisalign treatment for patients to straighten their teeth and create a more beautiful smile — all with nearly invisible liners.

Compared to traditional braces, Invisalign offers the discreteness of a removable, barely noticeable liner. If you’re considering treatment to straighten your teeth and enhance your smile, choosing Invisalign over traditional braces could make all the difference in your experience.

How do Invisalign aligners differ from traditional braces?

While traditional braces may be effective at straightening teeth, they come with plenty of downsides — starting with how they look.

Traditional braces use brackets that are impossible to hide. With Invisalign treatment, our team at Wollaston Dental Group provides you with treatment that is nearly invisible. For adults, your colleagues, clients, and friends won’t know you’re undergoing treatment. For self-conscious teens, friends will be similarly unaware.

Another downside of the brackets that come with traditional braces is the irritation inside the cheeks. With Invisalign, patients in Wollaston, MA and Quincy, MA are provided with a custom clear aligner tray made to fit their mouth — no cuts or salt washing.

Finally, while traditional braces remain adhered to your teeth, Invisalign trays are removable. They should be worn 20 – 22 hours a day, but you can remove the tray for eating, drinking, and brushing and flossing your teeth. This means you don’t have to change what you eat or how you brush your teeth — or anything else that would need to be changed with traditional braces.

Who can benefit from Invisalign treatment?

Similar to traditional braces, there are many reasons you might benefit from — and be a strong candidate — for Invisalign treatment. If you’re noticing the following dental problems, Invisalign treatment is an ideal option to address:

  • Gaps in your teeth

  • Overlapping

  • Crooked teeth

  • Misaligned bite

What should I expect with Invisalign treatment?

Traditional braces require an uncomfortable initial appointment, followed by many follow-up appointments that are similarly unpleasant.

With Invisalign, the process is convenient, comfortable, and easy. To begin, our team will take an impression of your upper and lower teeth. This will be sent to a dedicated Invisalign lab where your custom clear aligner trays will be made. When these aligner trays arrive back at our Quincy, MA practice, we will schedule an appointment to receive your first set and learn how to use your new Invisalign trays.

You’ll be instructed to switch to a new set of Invisalign trays every 1 – 2 weeks, helping your teeth adjust to your beautiful new smile. One of our team members will also help you book regular checkups at Wollaston Dental Group to monitor your treatment and evaluate your results.
