The Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment with Invisalign® in Providence, RI

Here are some reasons why we recommend Invisalign® and why so many patients request this orthodontic system over traditional braces.

  • It’s virtually invisible
  • The aligners are easy to clean
  • It’s easier to care for your teeth and gums
  • Reduced treatment time
  • Patients with mild to moderate misalignment can benefit from this system
  • Clear aligners are the more comfortable option
  • You can eat whatever you want because the aligners are removable
  • Less likelihood of an orthodontic emergency
  • Orthodontic check-ups are faster and easier (no tightening or archwire/bracket replacements needed)
  • More insurance companies cover Invisalign® treatment than ever before

How to Care for Your Teeth and Invisalign® Aligners While Undergoing Orthodontic Treatment

Oral hygiene is a breeze when you have clear aligners. Remove the aligners and brush and floss your teeth as per usual. Oral hygiene recommendations to prevent decay and gum disease during orthodontic treatment include:

  • Brush at least twice a day for two minutes each time
  • Floss at least once a day
  • Use an electric toothbrush for a thorough clean

To clean your Invisalign® aligners:

  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush
  • Use antibacterial soap (toothpaste is too abrasive and will damage the aligners)
  • Thoroughly brush the aligners (inside and out)
  • Rinse with lukewarm water
  • Let air dry completely
  • Store in your aligner container

What Is Invisalign®?

Invisalign® is an orthodontic treatment system that gently shifts the teeth into their ideal positions like traditional metal braces.

Unlike metal braces however, Invisalign® utilizes removable clear aligners to move the teeth. The aligners in this system are virtually invisible.

The clear aligners look similar to teeth whitening trays. They fit over the teeth and are worn for 20-22 hours every day. Wearing them any less can result in delayed results and extended treatment time.

How Does Invisalign® Work?

To begin Invisalign® treatment, we start by creating models of your teeth and use those models to fabricate the clear aligners. At first, the aligners will feel quite snug. As time progresses, the aligners will feel like they fit like a glove, which indicates that it’s time to get a new set of aligners.

Every few weeks, you’ll start wearing new aligners. Just as with the first set, each additional set will feel snug. As your teeth shift into position, the aligners will feel less snug.

You’ll need to wear a retainer once you’ve completed orthodontic treatment in Providence, RI. The retainer will look like one of your clear aligners. In most cases, patients need to wear a retainer 24/7 for the first year after orthodontic treatment. Eventually, you’ll only need to wear your retainer at night – but you’ll need to do so forever. Not wearing your retainer can result in the teeth shifting back to their original position.
