Invisalign® Clear Braces in Wayland, MA
In the past, straightening your teeth meant filling your mouth with sharp metal brackets and wires. For three years – or longer – you’d have to wear metal braces, attending tightening appointments every few weeks. It’s easy to see why most adults decline orthodontic treatment. Today, we have an alternative to traditional metal braces. With Invisalign in Wayland, you can bypass this traditional technique and head into a straighter smile with lightning speed. Contact our Wayland, MA team today to schedule an Invisalign consultation.
Invisalign clear braces are translucent aligners that gradually reposition teeth. Dr. Michael Putt designs the treatment plan from start to finish, and then you simply switch out your aligners every two weeks. Six-week progress reports allow Dr. Putt to monitor your smile’s improvement.
The Benefits of Invisalign
Figuring that the Invisalign treatment is sounding better and better as you continue to read? Just wait—there’s more! You can also benefit from Invisalign in these ways:
- Fewer dental visits and saved time overall.
- Flexibility with your diet as the trays are removable.
- Easier dental hygiene care at home compared to traditional braces.
- Less irritation and discomfort because the trays are crafted from smooth, clear plastic.
Am I a Candidate for Invisalign?
There are many patients who make great candidates for the Invisalign straightening treatment. Many people can benefit from the flexibility that it offers as well as it’s easy maintenance, but if you’re not committed to great oral health you might not be the right fit. Also, your mouth should be fully developed. This means that ideal candidates are at least teenagers and many adults opt in for this option as well.
Ultimately, you’ll need to visit our practice for an exam and discussion with our dental experts to determine your best options.
How to Maintain My Smile After Invisalign?

We’re here for you throughout the whole process—even after the whole process is complete. We can help you with creating a customized retainer, cleaning your teeth at home, and checking on your smile to make sure your teeth are staying in their correct positions.
