Invisalign – Weymouth, MA
Choose the Clear Choice in Orthodontics
Columbian Square Dental offers the latest orthodontic solutions to help you get a healthy, straight smile. Besides traditional braces, we also provide the preferred choice among teens and adults. Now, you can correct your bite and alignment concerns using a nearly invisible option with Invisalign in Weymouth. In as little as 12 months, you will have the smile you have always wanted without brackets and wires.
What is Invisalign?
Traditional metal braces rely on brackets and wires to pull your teeth into position. Although it is effective for correcting complex issues, it is very noticeable. We understand you need a more sophisticated solution.
Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners worn over your teeth to align them. They are virtually undetectable, so you do not need to worry about unnecessary attention brought to your mouth when you speak or smile.
Benefits of Invisalign
The clear removable aligners allow you to enjoy several benefits that are not possible using traditional braces, including:
- Translucent appearance for a less noticeable treatment.
- Removable to eliminate dietary restrictions.
- Easy oral hygiene routine.
- Simple maintenance and care.
- Comfortable, smooth aligners to prevent irritation.
- Results in as few as 12 months.
- No need for adjustment appointments.
Am I a Candidate for Invisalign?
Now, Invisalign is suitable for correcting a variety of bite and alignment concerns, including gapped, rotated, or tilted teeth. Although it can fix many issues, you still need a consultation to ensure it is the right choice for you. We perform a comprehensive examination and take the time to discuss your preferences to create a customized treatment plan to achieve a straight smile.
What Can I Expect?
We take x-rays, pictures, and digital impressions to map the movement of your teeth using advanced technology. The information is fabricated to a series of aligners worn over your teeth for at least 22 hours per day. You wear each aligner in the series for about 1 week before switching to the next. On average, it takes about 12 months to finish your series. Throughout your treatment, you do not need appointments for adjustments, so you will spend less time in the dental chair, but you need to come in every few weeks to monitor the movement of your teeth. After you finish your series, you will need a retainer to prevent your teeth from moving back into their previous positions.
Maintenance & Care
Besides brushing your teeth twice per day and flossing every night, you must also care for your aligners to make the most of your treatment. It is best to:
- Clean your aligners using a soft-bristled toothbrush and clear antibacterial soap.
- Do not eat or drink anything except water while wearing them.
- Store your aligners in their protective case when they are not in your mouth.
- Rinse them with water before placing them back into your mouth.
