How Do Invisalign Clear Aligners Work?

Invisalign clear aligners use a series of custom-designed aligners specifically created for your unique smile transformation journey. Here's how it works:

Initial Consultation

During your initial consultation at Family Dentistry of Westford, our experienced orthodontic team will assess your teeth and determine whether Invisalign is the right solution for you.

Digital Impressions

Using advanced 3D imaging technology, we’ll take detailed digital impressions of your teeth, creating a virtual representation of your smile.

Custom Treatment Plan

Based on the digital impressions, our skilled orthodontists will design a personalized treatment plan, mapping out the precise movements of your teeth from their current positions to their desired alignment.

Series of Aligners

Throughout your treatment, you’ll wear a series of aligners, each one designed to gradually shift your teeth. You’ll use each set of aligners for about two weeks before progressing to the next set in the series.

Regular Check-Ups

Throughout your Invisalign journey, we’ll schedule regular check-ups to monitor your progress and ensure that your treatment is advancing as planned. These visits also allow us to address any questions or concerns you may have.

Reveal Your New Smile

Once you’ve finished, you'll be amazed at the transformation of your smile. It's time to celebrate and show off your beautifully aligned teeth.

The Benefits of Invisalign

Choosing Invisalign for your orthodontic journey offers many advantages beyond just a beautifully aligned smile. Here are some of the benefits you can expect:

Discreet Treatment

Since Invisalign is practically invisible, you can straighten your teeth without drawing unnecessary attention. You‘ll confidently smile, speak, and socialize throughout your treatment without feeling self-conscious.

Removable Convenience

You can remove your aligners when necessary. Take them out during meals so you can enjoy all your favorite foods without restrictions.

Additionally, brushing and flossing your teeth becomes hassle-free, as you can maintain your regular oral hygiene routine.

Comfortable Experience

The smooth, custom-made aligners fit snugly over your teeth, providing a comfortable orthodontic experience. Unlike traditional braces with brackets and wires, Invisalign aligners have no sharp edges or protruding pieces that can cause discomfort or irritation.

Shorter Treatment Time

While your treatment time will be unique to you, Invisalign typically takes a shorter time compared to traditional braces. With regular check-ups with Dr. Schofield, Dr. Martin, or Dr. Smegula, you'll be on your way to a beautifully aligned smile in no time.

No Dietary Restrictions

Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign doesn't come with any food limitations. You can continue to savor crunchy snacks and chewy treats and even indulge in the occasional popcorn at the movies.

Is Invisalign Right for Me?

Invisalign is an amazing treatment, but it isn’t the best option for everyone. You’re an ideal candidate for Invisalign if you:

  • Have Mild to Moderate Orthodontic Issues: Invisalign is great for mild to moderate orthodontic problems like crowded teeth, gaps between teeth, overbites, underbites, crossbites, and open bites.
  • Want a Low Profile Treatment: If visible braces make you hesitate, Invisalign's virtually invisible aligners may be the perfect fit. You can confidently go about your daily activities without worrying about the appearance of traditional braces.
  • Enjoy an Active Lifestyle: Invisalign aligners are removable, allowing you to participate in sports, musical activities, and other physical endeavors without the restrictions of traditional braces. You‘ll just remove the aligners during these activities and wear them again afterward.
  • Can Commit to Treatment Requirements: Invisalign treatment requires discipline and commitment. You must wear your aligners for the recommended duration each day to see the desired results. If you diligently follow the treatment plan and wear your aligners as instructed, Invisalign can be a highly effective option for you.
  • Prefer Convenience: With Invisalign, you won’t need to worry about dietary restrictions, and maintaining oral hygiene is a breeze. If you prefer the convenience of eating your favorite foods without limitations and easily brushing and flossing your teeth, Invisalign aligners are a great choice.
