Invisalign – Boston, MA
Discreet Aligners. Amazing Results!
For decades, the only way to address crooked, gapped, and otherwise misaligned teeth was to wear traditional braces. Although effective, the metal brackets and wires left much to be desired in the looks department. The good news is that there is now an equally as reliable but considerably more discreet option: Invisalign clear aligners. If you want to learn more about this orthodontic treatment, keep reading or get in touch with our Boston dental team to schedule a consultation!

How Invisalign Works
To move your teeth from where they are now to their properly aligned positions, our team at Turning Leaf Dental will create a custom series of clear aligners. If your case of malocclusion is minor, then you may only have a handful of trays. If your case is more severe, however, then you may have 25 or more. Regardless, you’ll be instructed to wear each set of aligners for 20-22 hours a day, switching to a new pair every 7-14 days. Once you’ve worked through the entire series and you’re happy with the results, we will provide you with a retainer to prevent orthodontic relapse.
Indications for Invisalign
Over the last 20+ years, Invisalign has helped patients with all sorts of orthodontic issues – from overcrowded teeth to uneven bites. To learn more about how clear aligner treatment can help, read on!
If your teeth are overcrowded to the point where they overlap, then your toothbrush and floss aren’t as effective at removing plaque, food particles, and other debris. Fortunately, Invisalign can move your teeth into their properly aligned positions, improving your confidence and your oral health.
Gaps Between Teeth
Spaced-out teeth pose a similar problem because debris can get caught between your teeth and gumline, increasing your risk of developing gum disease. Again, the clear aligners can gently guide your teeth to their ideal positions – all without the metal brackets and noticeable wires!
Overbites, underbites, crossbites, and open bites can result in premature wear, speech issues, abnormal chewing patterns, and jaw pain. Fortunately, orthodontic accessories, like rubber bands, can be added to your Invisalign treatment plan so that the final result is aligned teeth and an aligned bite.
The Benefits of Invisalign
More than 12 million patients have chosen Invisalign because:
- The aligners are see-through, making them virtually undetectable
- There aren’t any dietary restrictions
- You don’t need to buy any special oral hygiene tools
- The average treatment timeline is 12-18 months
- There are fewer check-in appointments
How Much Does Invisalign Cost?
The cost of your Invisalign treatment will depend on a few key factors, including the complexity of your case, how many aligners are needed, and if rubber bands or any other orthodontic accessories need to be included. That’s why we can’t give you an accurate estimate of the cost until your consultation! The good news is that – in addition to providing you with a number – we can review all of the financial solutions available, like dental insurance and financing. That way, you know exactly how much it costs and what you can do to make the price fit into your budget.
