What is Invisalign®?
Coron Dental team of invisalign dentist in Brookline and Boston, straightens teeth using a series of clear aligners. Our staff digital scan your mouth so that a series of aligners can be created in a invisalign lab. The invisible aligners are made out of clear thermoplastic material that is strong and flexible for your long term comfort.
The aligners should be worn 22 hours except for mealtime and cleaning. They need to be switched out with the next one in the series every 2 weeks.
Over a period of treatment time, the aligners will slowly move , making minor and gradual adjustment at a time that is targeted to specific teeth. This helps your teeth to be comfortable as they are moved into position at a manageable pace.
Once you are done wearing your aligners, your teeth should be straight for perfect smile.

Benefits of Invisalign
Patients may prefer wearing Invisalign® because of how convenient it is in comparison to wearing traditional braces.
No one can tell you are straightening your teeth
You can take them out to eat dinner, go on a date, or make an important presentation at work
Easy invisalign Home Care- Simply remove aligner and rinse it with warm water on a daily basis. You may use a soft toothbrush for additional cleaning.
You can brush and floss your teeth like normal
There is less of a risk that your teeth will become stained as compared with wearing metal braces.
The procedure is more comfortable than metal braces since the aligners move teeth into place slowly and only focus on a few teeth at a time.
Aligners are easy to take care of, and you only use the same aligner for a couple of weeks.

The exact timeframe will depend on your situation, and Coron Dental team can tell you how long they will need to be worn. Overall, the treatment time can be less than with metal braces.

Patients will need to see us for checkups to ensure that teeth are moving like they are supposed to. Fortunately, since the aligners are made at the beginning of the procedure, these appointments are less frequent than if you were wearing metal braces. With traditional braces, a metal bracket is placed on each tooth, and a wire is threaded between them then held in place using rubber bands. The wires need to be adjusted on a regular basis in order to keep teeth moving in the right direction. This requires frequent office visits.
For people with busy schedules and a hectic life – this is inconvenient, and any delay in appointment scheduling can prolong the timeframe that braces need to be worn for. As an Invisalign® dentist, we see patients less frequently because the checkups are not to adjust anything, just to make sure that the procedure is working. This is far more convenient for patients throughout the Brookline and Boston, MA area.

How will Invisalign® impact my life?
Unlike wearing traditional braces, Invisalign® will not make a major impact on your quality of life. Since the aligners are clear, it will not impact your appearance. Additionally, since they only need to be worn for 22 hours a day, they will not interfere with eating. This is a huge advantage because you can eat your favorite plate of ribs, go out for a romantic date, eat a caramel apple without worrying about something becoming stuck in your teeth or a wire being pulled out of place. This time also allows you to take the aligner out when having an important conversation or making a presentation at work. Overall, this is a convenient way to straighten your teeth and provides the maximum level of flexibility.
Some people are concerned about whether or not wearing an aligner will impact their speech. Most of our Brookline and Boston patients tell us that they have to get used to wearing aligners after the first couple of days. Sometimes, patients have a slight lisp which goes away once they become used to speaking while wearing them. This is standard with any orthodontic procedure but fortunately; most people can speak normally within a couple of days.
