Visit Our Certified Worcester Invisalign® Clear Braces Provider
Orthodontic treatment can be an important part of a beautiful smile. Having straighter teeth feels good and makes it easier to keep decay and plaque from building up in crowded, hard to reach areas.
Lahair & Gallagher Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics’ team of experts work together to give our patients options when it comes to teeth straightening. Dr. Joffre, our Worcester orthodontist, offers Invisalign® clear aligners for teens and adults as a more discreet approach to improving their smiles.
What are Invisalign Clear Braces?
Invisalign is an alternative to conventional metal braces. Instead of metal brackets and wires, this system uses a series of custom, clear aligner trays to gently move your teeth into proper position. The aligners are virtually invisible, provide a comfortable fit, and can be removed for eating and brushing. Because they are removable, there are no limitations to eating your favorite foods, or difficulties keeping your teeth and gums clean during treatment.
How Invisalign Works
A series of aligners trays are molded according to a precise impression of your teeth and gums. Each set of Invisalign® aligner trays gradually reposition your teeth and are replaced every two weeks for continued progress towards the desired results. The aligner trays must remain in place for at least 22 hours per day, every day, until treatment is completed.
While traditional braces require monthly visits to your orthodontist, being treated with Invisalign at our Worcester office requires fewer follow-up visits, as Dr. Joffre provides you with enough aligner trays to last until your next appointment.
Invisalign aligners correct most conditions that traditional braces can, including:

The Invisalign System for Teens and Adults
Dr. Joffre treats adults and teens whose adult teeth have emerged and who are mature enough to comply with the Invisalign instructions. Our Worcester orthodontist will discuss the importance of keeping the Invisalign aligner trays in place and not removing them except for when eating and during your dental hygiene routine.
Through this conversation and his findings from your examination, Dr. Joffre will recommend the appropriate treatment to provide you with the best orthodontic results.
