If you’ve been wishing for a straighter smile but don’t want to undergo the timeline, discomfort, and attention-grabbing metal appearance of traditional braces, we have some great news to share. Invisalign® clear aligners are a revolutionary yet proven treatment in the orthodontic field, and they are available from our dentists near you at Sharon Dental Group.
As Invisalign-approved dentists in Sharon, MA, our doctors have the training and technology to transform smiles in a way that is virtually invisible, extremely comfortable, and highly effective. Sharon Dental Group is a proud, certified provider of Invisalign near you, and we provide FREE consultations with an appointment.
Thanks to increased innovation in dental technology and materials, straightening teeth has become more convenient and more efficient than ever before. Unlike metallic braces, Invisalign offers you a transparent way to straighten your teeth, so no one will notice your quest for an improved smile.
Other advantages of Invisalign over other aligner therapies are that the treatment has worked successfully for millions of people, plus you’ll only need to visit our dentists every six weeks. Keep in mind, however, that should you ever need to speak to our dentists or visit us during an interim period, we are here to provide one-on-one personalized care. This personal care is something that is lacking in over-the-counter (OTC) and online purchases for aligner therapy.
In addition to our dentists being available to answer your questions about Invisalign procedures personally, there are a few other things that make Invisalign the aligner of choice for so many patients.
One essential difference in the technology and customized treatment that Invisalign provides for patients is the iTero Element® scanner. Using this advanced scanning technology (with is exclusive to Invisalign), our dentists can map out your new smile using 3D images in real-time.
During your consultation, the advanced scanning capabilities of the iTero Element allow us to design a customized treatment plan for your smile makeover goals based on technology that takes over 6,000 images per second. With that breadth of diagnostic accuracy, patients are guaranteed more accurate results than old-school physical impressions.
Plus, you’ll be able to see and track the changes in your smile during every appointment so adjustments in your treatment can be made if needed. For example, the mapping software of Invisalign’s algorithm allows customization and adjustment of force that’s used for every tooth movement.
As with most aligner therapy, your Invisalign aligners should be worn for at least 20-22 hours per day. This means that you’re left with about 2-4 hours a day to remove them. Many patients especially appreciate this flexibility in work, school, and social settings when they want the focus to be on them and not their aligners.
One of the first things that patients ask us when considering Invisalign is the cost. While we wish we could provide that information right now, some factors will need to be considered first. Some examples include the complexity of your condition and your general oral health (outstanding issues such as tooth decay should be taken care of in advance of your aligner therapy).
In addition to the benefits already mentioned, Invisalign aligner therapy can be used to successfully treat a host of smile imperfections, such as crooked or misaligned teeth, over-crowded teeth, crossbites, overbites, and more. Plus, our office can coordinate benefit coverage with your insurance provider or provide you with information about CareCredit®, a third-party financing option, to help make your aligner therapy more accessible.
The three biggest takeaways about Invisalign aligner therapy from our dentists are that the technology and customized treatment ensure proven performance, patients can visit us for one-on-one care, and we can coordinate insurance benefits or third-party financing options. Sharon Dental Group is a comfortable and convenient dental practice offering you top-tier comprehensive dentistry, and we look forward to meeting you soon for your FREE Invisalign consultation.
