The Perfect Solution for Crooked and Crowded Teeth in Boston, MA
Are you self-conscious about your crooked or crowded teeth? Do you want to enhance your smile without wearing unsightly metal braces? Dental Arts of Boston has a perfect solution for you. Invisalign is gaining immense popularity due to the ease of the procedure with fewer dental visits.
Our Boston, MA dentists are proud to offer advanced Invisalign treatment that uses clear plastic trays to treat your dental issues.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses clear plastic trays instead of traditional metal braces to straighten your teeth. The clear aligners are custom-fitted to your teeth using 3D computer imaging technology. The treatment process involves wearing a series of clear aligners to gradually move your teeth into the desired position. You will receive a new set of aligners every two weeks until the treatment is complete. The entire treatment duration can last between nine months to a year.
Why Choose Invisalign?
There are several reasons why Invisalign treatment is the perfect solution for you:
- The clear aligners are practically invisible, so you can smile and talk without feeling self-conscious about your appearance.
- They’re removable, making it easy to eat, brush, and floss.
- They’re comfortable to wear, and most patients forget they’re even wearing them after a few weeks.
- Invisalign treatment requires fewer dental visits than traditional metal braces.
Invisalign Treatment Process
The Invisalign treatment process starts with a consultation with one of our experienced dentists. During the consultation, we’ll evaluate your oral condition and determine if Invisalign treatment is suitable for you. We’ll take scans and digital X-rays of your teeth and create a precise treatment plan. We’ll then send the impressions of your teeth to an Invisalign provider to fabricate your aligners.
Wearing Your Aligners
Once your aligners are ready, you will receive a sequence of plastic trays, each slightly different from the one before. You’ll wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, brush, and floss. As you progress through the series of aligners, your teeth will gradually move into the desired position. You will notice a difference in your bite and appearance with each set of aligners.
The treatment duration can last between nine months to a year, depending on the severity of your dental issues. On completion of the treatment, you will have a beautifully aligned smile.
Frequently Asked Questions
▼ Is Invisalign painful?
Invisalign aligners are generally considered to be more comfortable than traditional braces. However, some patients may experience mild discomfort or soreness when they first start wearing their aligners or switch to a new set. This discomfort usually goes away within a few days.
▼ How long does Invisalign treatment take?
The length of Invisalign treatment varies depending on the individual case. In general, treatment can take anywhere from nine to 18 months. Your dentist or orthodontist will be able to give you a more accurate estimate based on your specific needs.
▼ How do I take care of my Invisalign aligners?
To keep your Invisalign aligners clean and hygienic, you should rinse them with water and brush them gently with a soft-bristled toothbrush. You can also use special cleaning crystals or tablets to remove any stubborn stains or buildup. Avoid using hot water or abrasive cleaners, as they can damage the aligners.

It’s recommended you remove your Invisalign aligners when eating and drinking, as they can become stained or damaged. You should also brush your teeth before putting your aligners back in to maintain good oral hygiene.
