We are an Invisalign Elite Preferred Provider
As Invisalign Elite Preferred Providers, our doctors are in the top 1% of all Invisalign® practitioners worldwide. Our practice is only one of a handful to have achieved this status in New England. Consider Invisalign to get the beautiful straight teeth you've always wanted - without braces. A complimentary consultation with Dr. Glick can determine if Invisalign is right for you.
What is it?
Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you're wearing. So, you can smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign is made with 3-D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective. More than 70% of orthodontists in the US and Canada are certified to treat with Invisalign.
Why would I want it?
Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. And no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your doctor's office getting adjustments. Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
How does it work?
You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move - little by little, week by week - until they have straightened to their final positions. In most cases, you will visit us about once every ten weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. The average treatment time for Invisalign patients in our practice is 12-18 months, but keep in mind that each case is unique, and we often have cases go much faster or slower than those averages.
