Invisalign in Rowley
If you’re an adult who suffers from a smile that’s crooked or misaligned, it may feel like you’ve missed the boat on ever achieving a lovelier look. There’s always traditional metal orthodontics, of course, but what about the professional and social life you’ve worked so hard to build over the years? You don’t deserve to have to suffer through years of clunky braces that make you feel like you’re back in middle school. What are your options, then? Thankfully, Dr. St. Clair has the solution – Invisalign! As its name suggests, Invisalign can help you achieve a perfectly straight smile in a nearly invisible fashion here at our Rowley, MA office.
The Invisalign Process
Invisalign relies on a series of clear, plastic aligners that are carefully customized to fit your unique smile. Each one represents a different stage of your treatment as your teeth slowly move into their ideal alignment; all you have to do is wear each one for a predetermined period of time before switching to the next aligner in the set. Attending brief, regular checkups with Dr. St. Clair is also important so he can check your progress and confirm that everything is proceeding smoothly.
What are the benefits?
Invisalign boasts many benefits over traditional metal braces, including:
- The aligners are virtually unnoticeable saving you from potential embarrassment in social settings.
- They’re also removable, meaning you won’t have to make any annoying changes to your diet or oral hygiene routine in order to accommodate them; instead, just take them out!
- Many people who’ve undergone traditional orthodontics still shudder at the mention of having them adjusted or tightened. No uncomfortable processes like this are required with Invisalign. Instead, your regular checkups will be brief and spread out.
- In most cases, Invisalign treatment is finished anywhere between eight and twelve months – a significantly shorter time than the multiple years traditional braces often require.

Invisalign invisibly straightens your teeth with a series of custom-molded aligners.
Forget everything you’ve heard about teeth straightening. Because now there’s breakthrough technology that lets you get the smile you always wanted without bands, brackets, or wires.
A clear alternative.
By using a series of clear removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth right before your eyes. Change them about every 2 weeks, your teeth will move—little by little, week by week—until they have moved to the final position your orthodontist or dentist has prescribed. Comfortable to wear, our aligners are also removable so you can eat, drink, brush, and floss as usual.
Less treatment time.
A typical Invisalign case takes about a year from start to finish. You’ll see your doctor every month or two to see how you’re progressing. Every few visits, you’ll be given additional aligners to continue your treatment. Commonly, the number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but treatment time and number of aligners will vary from case to case.
Invisible AND comfortable.
Invisalign is an invisible solution. So you won’t draw undue attention to your mouth while in treatment. In fact, virtually no one will know you’re wearing them unless you tell. Comfortable to wear, our aligners are also removable so you can eat, drink, brush, and floss as usual.
Is Invisalign for Me?
Invisalign can be used to treat the vast majority of common problems for adults and teens. Whether your smile needs minor improvements or more extensive adjustments, Invisalign can certainly help. It's successful in treating overly crowded or widely spaced teeth. It can also relieve more complex issues including overbites, underbites and crossbites. In fact, an Invisalign Certified Orthodontist or Dentist can use Invisalign clear aligners in all or part of just about any treatment plan.
