Boston Area Dentist Improves Your Smile with Invisalign

Improve Your Smile with Invisalign with Boston Area Dentist

Everybody loves to find ways to save money. So, sometimes, going with a cheaper option is not a big deal. With aligners and teeth-straightening products, this is not the case. When you buy over-the-counter options, you save money and sacrifice quality, comfort, and lasting results.

Anjum A. Ansari, D.M.D. is a dentist that can improve your smile in Boston, Massachusetts, with the Invisalign system. Invisalign has proven to be one of the leading teeth straightening aligner systems in the market. Your teeth should not be a do-it-yourself project that you buy over-the-counter. Through dentist (or orthodontic) supervision, you will reap the benefits offered by the Invisalign treatment system.

Invisalign vs. OTC straightening

When looking at the benefits of Invisalign compared to what an over-the-counter option offers, there really is not much of a contest as to which treatment will consistently provide great results. 

First, Invisalign is tailored to fit your mouth and teeth exactly. This is achieved through state-of-the-art 3D imaging that is sent into the Invisalign lab so that your aligner trays can be created to fit you perfectly and comfortably. When comparing this to over-the-counter options, the advantage goes to Invisalign. Over-the-counter options will often have the user take a mold of their own teeth using a putty mold. This is difficult to do by yourself and, if a mistake is made, you may have to request more putty be mailed to you. No doctor is there to help you, and you will mail in the mold.

The comfort goes to Invisalign as well. Your Invisalign trays are created to fit your mouth perfectly. These trays are created using specially engineered materials that are designed for comfort. These trays are trimmed, so they align perfectly with your gumline. This will minimize the possibility of irritation and provide a snug fit over your teeth. Over-the-counter options are often manufactured using a hard plastic that is not very comfortable. You do not have the benefit of any sort of guarantee where it comes to the fit. These options can result in irritation of the gums where the trays rest.
