Teeth straightening, without the braces, in Boston … Sink into three-plus benefits of Invisalign treatment
There are more than 2,100 general dentists in our proud metro to choose from for you and your family’s oral care. These dental professionals, tasked with revealing a smile you can be proud of, vary considerably in terms of their experience, knowledge, and investments in technology and continuing education. Dr. Anjum Ansari has a hunger for learning, evidenced by her ongoing coursework and mastery of the latest dental techniques through organizations like Dawson Academy and Spear Learning. Among those advanced, tech-based techniques include Invisalign teeth straightening treatment in Boston MA, available at the warm and homey, yet state-of-the-art, office of Anjum A. Ansari, D.M.D. General and Cosmetic Dentistry. Like other advanced treatments at her office, Invisalign supports the most pleasant, comfortable, efficient, discreet, and precision experience at the dentist’s office.
As an alternative to conventional braces made with silver-colored wires and brackets, Invisalign presents an attractive way for our patients to correct many different types of misalignment and bite problems. Crooked and crowded, overlapped or featuring an underbite, regardless of the condition Invisalign treated, our patients universally loved the system’s:
- Clear, smooth aligner trays – Resembling a retainer or mouthguard, these appliances are customized to the contours of your teeth. When worn as directed, the trays incrementally reposition teeth. There are no wires to tighten. The trays themselves are smooth (don’t irritate the inside of the mouth) and transparent (no “metal mouth” here!). Since you can see your teeth through the clear plastic, you get instant gratification. Heavy-looking brackets and wires don’t hide the gradual improvements to your smile.
- Removable feature – Yes, instead of “fixed” braces that remain on your teeth throughout treatment and can only be removed by your orthodontist, Invisalign trays are removable. They can be removed for comfortable eating and effective brushing and flossing, which helps to keep your teeth and gums healthy throughout treatment.
- Hassle-free nature – Invisalign minimizes the return trips traditionally associated with orthodontic treatment. These visits are necessary with braces, as wires must be tightened to ensure the process of straightening progresses. With Invisalign, you only return periodically to Dr. Ansari’s office. So, she can check that your treatment is coming along well.
Each tray is one in a series of trays. The number of trays required to straighten your teeth depend on factors such as the type of misalignment or bite problem that is present, as well as the severity of that problem. Each tray corresponds with a stage of treatment. Around every two weeks, you replace the tray with the next one in the series. Trays are easy to care for, and should be worn for at least 22 hours. By complying with “wear time,” you won’t delay treatment and will be able to reveal your straighter, more even teeth in no time.
