What Is Invisalign Treatment?

Bringing your teeth into proper alignment can not only help produce a beautiful, confident smile — it can also make caring for your teeth and gums easier and more effective. Oral health concerns, such as an overbite or crowded teeth, can cause long-term dental conditions that may lead to other oral health issues or be more expensive to treat. In an effort to help people experience the rewards of a straight, healthy smile, our practice takes pride in offering Invisalign orthodontics to adults and teens in Quincy, MA. Invisalign removable clear aligners steadily repositions teeth using removable, nearly invisible teeth aligners, providing a discreet appearance and a convenient treatment alternative to metal braces. Learn if the Invisalign system is right for your smile by scheduling a consultation with Dr. James McDonough and our team at Wollaston Dental Group.

Am I a Candidate for Invisalign Orthodontics?

Quincy, MA teenagers and adults who desire a less noticeable alternative to traditional orthodontics may be prime candidates for Invisalign orthodontics. Invisalign treatments can be appropriate for addressing poor tooth alignment (an overbite, underbite, crossbite, or open bite), crooked or crowded teeth, gapped teeth, and narrow dental arches. Addressing such issues with an Invisalign dentist may improve jaw function, comfort, and eating and speaking abilities. Clear teeth aligners are also easier to remove from the mouth, allowing patients to eat the foods they love and care for their teeth without brackets and wires interfering with their efforts. During your visit at Wollaston Dental Group, we will take x-rays and provide an exam to determine if Invisalign treatment is a suitable choice for your orthodontic needs.

How Do Invisalign Aligners Work?

The Invisalign orthodontic system works through a custom series of clear removable trays that incrementally direct your teeth into their proper position. To initiate your treatment, we will take an impression of your upper and lower teeth, which will be sent to a dedicated Invisalign lab where your custom clear aligner trays will be created. When these aligner trays arrive at our Quincy, MA practice, we will schedule you to come back in to receive your first set and go over how to use them. Invisalign trays should be worn for 20 – 22 hours each day and only removed to brush or floss your teeth and before eating or drinking. You will then be instructed to swap your current set of aligners for the next in succession every 1 – 2 weeks. One of our team members will help you book regular checkups at Wollaston Dental Group so our Invisalign dentist can evaluate your treatment results.

What Happens After Invisalign Treatment Is Complete?

While the timeframe for Invisalign teeth straightening treatment will vary based on case-by-case needs and goals, many patients wear their removable teeth aligners for 12 – 24 months. Once your orthodontic care is finished, it is crucial to keep your teeth from moving by using a set of custom retainers. Invisalign's Vivera® retainers are fabricated with the same comfortable, clear substance as the aligner trays and are custom made in the Invisalign lab. We will then have your return to try in your retainers and learn how to wear and care for them. Dr. McDonough and our team will continually monitor the positioning of your teeth and your treatment results during your regular dental visits at Wollaston Dental Group.

Does Insurance Cover Invisalign Teeth Straightening?

A portion of Invisalign orthodontic treatment might be partially covered under select dental insurance plans. Prior to your treatment, one of our financial coordinators will review your benefits and talk with you about any out-of-pocket treatment expenses. Wollaston Dental Group proudly accepts a wide variety of payment methods, including flexible payment plans and low-interest dental financing, to make orthodontic treatment even more convenient and simple for Quincy, MA patients.
