Invisalign, Lowell MA
Invisalign clear aligners allow you to straighten your smile in the most discrete way possible. Invisalign uses a series of clear, comfortable aligners to gently guide your teeth to their new locations. Because they are clear, no one will even notice you are wearing them, unlike with metal braces. And they are removable, making eating, brushing and flossing a breeze.
For most patients, Invisalign can be just as effective as metal braces. For patients with minor malocclusions or spacing issues, Invisalign can be a wonderful option. Invisalign can cost slightly more than traditional braces, but the cost is generally very close.
Invisalign uses a series of fully customized aligners that fit over the teeth, and work to gently guide the teeth to their ideal locations. Each set will be worn for approximately two weeks and is precisely calibrated to achieve a certain degree of movement. Aligners are removed when eating. Drinking, brushing, and flossing.
Invisalign is typically slightly more expensive than traditional braces, but the cost has become much more on par in recent years. Our office will do everything we can to help you find an affordable treatment plan that will fit comfortably into your budget.
The first thing patients love about Invisalign is that the aligners are made from clear plastic. This makes them virtually invisible to others. But additional benefits include:
Adults and teens with minor to moderate malocclusions are ideal candidates for Invisalign. The treatment is typically not recommended for children or for patients with more severe orthodontic issues. The best way to determine if Invisalign is right for you is to schedule a consultation.
Most major dental plans will cover a portion of Invisalign treatment costs. Our office will help you determine the extent of your benefits.
As with any orthodontic treatment, retention is important. You will be given a retainer to wear to ensure your new smile stays in place. Always follow your dentist’s recommendations for retainer wear.
