Clear Orthodontic Aligners
Are you looking for a solution for crooked or crowded teeth but dread the thought of spending years in metal braces?
At Northborough Family Dental, we offer orthodontic treatment with clear orthodontic aligners that are appropriate for adults and older teens. The aligners are a popular alternative to metal braces because they work quickly and are discreet and comfortable to wear. Your teeth are gently repositioned using clear plastic aligners that are virtually invisible and much gentler on your mouth than metal braces. This treatment is exactly like Invisalign but without the expensive Invisalign price.
Another advantage of clear orthodontic aligners is that you can remove the aligners for meals, so you don’t have to give up your favorite foods during treatment. You will also be able to thoroughly brush and floss because there are no brackets and wires to try to clean around.
How The Process Works
Dr. Moheban first takes your impressions with his state of the art 3-D CAD/CAM scanning camera and designs your clear aligners with state-of-the-art 3-D computer imaging technology. As he plans your treatment, he will share the virtual results with you so you can see how your smile will be transformed using the aligners.
He sends the plan to a custom lab that customizes your aligners for your needs. Dr. Moheban and his team then 3D print your orthodontic models and fabricate your aligners in our specialized orthodontic lab. You will receive several sets of custom aligners with instructions to wear each for about two weeks, then move to the next set in the series. As you go through treatment, you’ll notice the change as your teeth move into their correct position.
Every time you switch to a new set, you will notice that the aligners feel very snug. But as the weeks pass, you’ll see that they gradually fit more comfortably. That’s how Invisalign works – each set of aligners is designed to gently move your teeth into proper position as treatment progresses.
We’ll make appointments to see you about once every four to six weeks so we can check on your progress. Treatment with clear orthodontic aligners usually takes about 10 to 12 months.
Convenient, Personalized Care
At Northborough Family Dental, we provide you with personalized care that takes your oral health, lifestyle, and budget into account. We encourage you to be a part of the process because we want you to feel empowered to make confident decisions about your treatment. Dr. Moheban and our team will take the time to listen to and understand your smile goals to ensure that you are thrilled with the results.
Our team will explain all the costs involved, and what portion you are responsible for so there are no surprises after treatment. We participate with almost all insurance providers, and if you don’t have insurance, we also offer CareCredit interest-free financing.
