The clear alternative to traditional braces in Woburn, MA.
What Is Invisalign®?
When technology meets orthodontics, achieving a straighter smile becomes more comfortable and rewarding.
The convenience afforded by the latest dental technology is contributing to the widespread popularity of Invisalign®Opens in the Invisalign website. Teens and adults can now enjoy the benefits of orthodontic treatment without the annoyance and bulk of conventional braces.
Invisalign® offers a comfortable, practically invisible alternative to metal braces. Instead of hardware-like brackets and wires, Invisalign® features custom-molded clear aligners, which are free from PVCs and BPAs. Clear aligners are a versatile and convenient orthodontic treatment producing swift results while delivering a more pleasant patient experience.
Improve Your Smile and Your Confidence!
Dental Technology in Motion
The gentle, constant pressure of Invisalign® clear aligners can influence the movement of teeth until the proper alignment is achieved.
Each aligner is produced according to strict Invisalign® standards and must be worn day and night, according to your dentist’s instructions.
During the treatment, periodic dental visits will be scheduled to monitor the movement of the teeth and to make any necessary adjustments.
Achieving Invisalign® Success
The most successful Invisalign® cases are aimed at correcting mild to moderate orthodontic problems. This includes crooked, crowded, overlapped, or gapped teeth.
It is imperative you wear the aligners at all times and only remove them at mealtimes and for brushing. The rate of tooth movement is greatly reduced when the aligners are not worn for at least 22 hours each day.
Once your teeth have been repositioned, the regular use of a custom retainer will be the only way to maintain the results.
The Invisalign® Consultation
Only an Invisalign-trained Woburn dentist can determine if this orthodontic procedure will deliver the results you desire.
Dental x-rays and clinical dental impressions will be necessary for forming your treatment plan, and the estimated length of your treatment. The average treatment time ranges from 6-18 months.
Your dental records will be forwarded to the Invisalign® world-class headquarters where your treatment plan will be finalized, complete with 3D images illustrating each phase of your treatment.
Exceptional service! I would highly recommend anyone looking for a dentist to come here. Friendly, caring, and professional!

Have Questions About Invisalign®?
- How long do I need to wear the aligner trays each day?
It is essential to wear the Invisalign® aligner trays at least 22 hours every day. Compliance with this direction is vital to achieving the best results possible.
The great thing about Invisalign® is you can remove the trays to eat and brush your teeth. If you have a special occasion such as class photos, you can remove the aligners temporarily.
However, you must place the trays back into position as soon as possible after these short breaks. The more you comply with the outlined treatment, the sooner your treatment will be done. And you will be able to enjoy your beautiful, straight smile!
- How often will I need to visit your office during treatment?
You will only need to come in about every 4 to 6 weeks.
Our doctors will want to check on the progress of your treatment and make any needed adjustments. These visits usually take a few minutes so you can quickly get back to your usual schedule.
The length of treatment will determine how many visits you will need to make with us, and your individual orthodontic needs will define the duration of treatment. Invisalign® treatment typically ranges anywhere from six to 24 months.
Our Woburn dental office is conveniently located to service our surrounding communities of Winchester, Burlington, Stoneham, Reading, Tewksbury, Wilmington, Lexington, and Wakefield.

- What happens if I lose an aligner?
You wouldn’t be the first!
Call our office and let us know about the lost tray.
If you have worn that tray for a few weeks already, we may direct you to move to the next aligner in the series. Otherwise, it will be necessary to have a new aligner made, and you can wear your previous aligner until the new one arrives.
- Can anyone use Invisalign®?
Generally, yes. Invisalign® is the perfect solution for adults and teens who want straighter teeth. There are no age or health restrictions. Invisalign® can effectively straighten most orthodontic issues, including:
- Overbite, underbite, crossbite, openbite
- Crowded teeth
