Gaining aligned and attractive teeth is a desire shared by plenty of people, ranging from pre-teens to older women and men. But for many patients, misaligned, crowded, or crooked teeth are preventing the enjoyment of an ideal smile. Though these concerns can certainly affect the look of the teeth, a wide range of women, men, and adolescents consider the nature of traditional braces to be an undesirable option.

Selecting Invisalign treatments enables a level of discretion that cannot be enjoyed with traditional ortho — even with ceramic, tooth-colored options. Invisalign teeth aligners are easily removed and are crafted with a flexible, nearly undetectable patented material called SmartTrack®. Offering aesthetic benefits, this treatment solution does not carry the appearance and discomfort of chunky devices and is often an effective option for both adult and adolescent individuals. For more on whether Invisalign clear aligners might be ideal for you or your family’s health, our practitioners at Cranston Dental Group invite you to keep reading and discover who can benefit from this innovative orthodontic option.

Invisalign orthodontics is often favored by many Cranston, RI people for its comfort, convenience, and less noticeable appearance. While Invisalign treatments are an effective orthodontic choice for a wide range of people, traditional braces may still be the most effective option in certain situations. Good candidates for Invisalign clear aligners might be people who:

  • Have misalignment issues, like an overbite, crossbite, open bite, or underbite
  • Are bothered by teeth separated by spaces or teeth that are overcrowded
  • Have crooked or overlapping teeth
  • Are affected by narrow arches
  • Have experienced a relapse in orthodontic results
  • Are just starting orthodontic treatment
  • Are pre-teens and teenagers
  • Are working men and women
  • Are active in sports or band

Invisalign trays could be utilized to manage a diverse range of dental complications in less treatment time when compared to metal braces. Custom-designed and computer-generated uniquely for every patient, Invisalign removable clear aligners improve and straighten the position of teeth by way of a series of clear trays, enabling a personalized treatment system. The Invisalign providers at Cranston Dental Group use sophisticated modalities to strategically map out the treatment process, planning the specific realignment of the teeth. This information is then shared with a professional Invisalign laboratory, where your sets of aligners are crafted to achieve personalized needs. Each set of aligners is kept in the mouth for generally one week. As one pair is traded for the next, your teeth should begin to incrementally shift toward their designated locations while guided by the steady pressure provided by every individual aligner tray. Along with the accelerated and cosmetically appealing option of Invisalign aligners for adolescent and adult orthodontics, patients often consider the teeth straightening process to be easier to endure and less challenging for their everyday routines.

While the clear trays fit comfortably on the arches, they also can be quickly removed before eating and drinking as well as for daily oral maintenance. Since there are no dietary limitations when undergoing Invisalign treatments, patients can still have any kind of food without having to worry about uncomfortable lip, gum, and cheek irritation and damaging their orthodontics. Cranston, RI people who participate physical activities or who play instruments do not have to worry about their brackets and wires becoming an obstacle, as the teeth aligners can be easily taken out for these events. Whenever the treatment process with Invisalign aligners is finished and the teeth are straight and aligned, a set of Vivera® Invisalign retainers will be created from the same flexible substance as the trays. Wearing Vivera retainers after completing active orthodontic care helps your hold teeth in their desired places. The retainers should feel much like the durable Invisalign aligner trays worn throughout the course of your ortho care.
