what qualifies you for Invisalign Treatments?
Invisalign removabel clear aligners may be ideal for both adults and teens who wish to achieve straighter teeth without the challenges and appearance of traditional metal braces. There are many factors that can affect tooth alignment: genetics, thumb-sucking as a child, tooth loss, and oral trauma. Tooth misalignment can cause several oral health problems, including an uneven bite, enamel wear, trouble chewing or speaking, and jaw pain. It can even increase the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. If our team finds any of these concerns during your exam, we may recommend an orthodontic treatment like the Invisalign system. Invisalign removable aligners can address orthodontic concerns like:
- Crooked teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Narrow arches
- Open bite
what is the invisalign Process?
Invisalign treatmentss work to align the teeth through a series of custom clear, removable mouth trays. To create your aligner trays and plan your treatment, our team will take digital impressions of your teeth and send these images to the Invisalign lab. When your clear aligners arrive in our office, we will have you return to get started with your orthodontic treatment. Your aligners should be worn for 20 – 22 hours every day, ideally only taking them out only for eating and cleaning. Every 1 – 2 weeks, you will move on to the next set of aligner trays as they carefully move your teeth into better alignment. Our team will schedule follow-up visits every other month to monitor your treatment progress.
How can invisalign clear aligners help you?
what happens after invisalign treatment?
The length of time you'll need to wear Invisalign removable aligners will vary based on the original position of your teeth and your goals; however, most patients spend about a year undergoing the Invisalign process. Once your teeth are properly aligned, it's important to keep them from migrating back to their former position. Vivera® retainers by Invisalign are made using the same smooth, clear material to help maintain your orthodontic results. Your retainers will be custom-made at the Invisalign lab from digital impressions taken after your orthodontic treatment is complete. Our team will discuss how often to wear your retainers and how to care for them each day. We will continue to monitor the alignment of your teeth and bite during your routine dental check-ups at Cranston Dental Group.
how much does invisalign treatment cost?
Invisalign teeth straightening treatment may be covered in part under dental insurance plans that offer orthodontic benefits. Our skilled treatment coordinator will review your individual plan before calculating any out-of-pocket costs. As a leader in comprehensive family care, Cranston Dental Group accepts several convenient payment methods and can help you apply for flexible, low-interest financing through CareCredit.
