What are Invisalign Clear Aligners?
Many patients want a beautiful, confident smile that comes with straight teeth. Some teens and adults find that traditional metal braces are an excellent option, but an increasing number of people opt for the more discreet Invisalign treatment. Invisalign aligners are made of clear, thin material and are designed to incrementally adjust tooth alignment until they reach their ideal locations. If you're interested in a healthy, straight smile but don't want to deal with the challenges of metal braces, the Invisalign orthodontics system from our full-service team at Made Ya Smile Rayford may be right for you.
It's not just about getting a straight, gorgeous, more balanced smile — the truth is that straight teeth are easier to clean and maintain. Invisalign trays for adults and Invisalign Teen aligners are nearly invisible solutions that can help you and your family overcome orthodontic issues. We're happy to report that our patients find Invisalign clear aligners to be a comfortable and easy method. These aligner trays make it simple to brush, floss, and eat, as they can be easily removed when necessary. Our modern full-service practice is proud to offer this advanced solution that uses cutting-edge technology to resolve common orthodontic problems like crowding, bite misalignment, and gapped teeth. To find out if you or your teen might be a candidate for receiving Invisalign clear aligners in Spring, TX, reach out to our multi-specialty practice today to schedule a personalized consultation with our dentists.
About Invisalign Teen® Orthodontics
Younger patients sometimes need a discreet method of straightening teeth just as adults do, and Invisalign Teen aligners may be the perfect option for them. Designed to accommodate the unique needs of your teen, these nearly invisible, comfortable, and removable aligners can help those who are self-conscious about wearing metal braces or let your teen continue to play sports or instruments that may carry a risk of injury if traditional metal braces are used. Because compliance issues can arise due to the fact that these aligners are removable, Invisalign Teen trays provide blue indicator dots on each tray that fade with proper use. These dots make it possible for you, your teen, and our Invisalign dentists to partner together and ensure the aligners are being worn properly to achieve ideal smile results.
"Love this place and that’s saying a lot! When I first met Dr Green he explained to me what I needed and how we would fix it, & 6 months later with work almost completed he and his staff have been amazing never making you feel like a dollar sign but part of the family! Never really enjoyed my visits to the dentist but now I can’t wait till my next appointment! :~}"- J. / Google / Oct 20, 2022
"I have had a large amount of dental work by other dentists and this place is the best! I always thought some discomfort was expected from the work but they made everything painless. The Dentist talked to me about options and gave me choices because prices can be hard to handle. I was treated with respect and the entire staff did everything to make me comfortable. Best Dental office ever!"- K.D. / Google / Sep 15, 2022

"Stumbled upon Made Ya Smile while searching for a dentist that took my insurance. I called to set up an apt for my issue and they immediately got me in the next day! That rarely happens with dentist and pcps. Probably saved my issue from getting a lot worse. Everyone in the office was extremely friendly. The hospitality I received from the time I called to paying and leaving was outstanding. I will be using these guys from now on."- M.L. / Google / May 19, 2022

Who is a Candidate for Invisalign Clear Aligners?
If you want to achieve a straighter, more even smile without the challenges of wearing traditional metal braces, Invisalign teeth straighteners from Made Ya Smile Rayford may be an optimal treatment for you. Customized for each individual patient, Invisalign clear aligner trays should be worn for at least 20 hours a day to ensure your desired results. With this innovative treatment, you can get the smile you want without any noticeable orthodontic appliances.
Many factors can affect jaw and teeth alignment, like genetics, thumb-sucking, trauma to the mouth or face, tooth loss, and developmental concerns. Worn or chipped teeth, jaw and facial pain, a receding gumline, and other concerns can arise from tooth misalignment. Without a properly aligned bite, your ability to bite, chew, and speak comfortably may also be affected. Depending on your unique needs, Invisalign orthodontics may help improve your bite (how your upper and lower teeth fit), oral health, and smile. Invisalign adult aligners and Invisalign Teen aligners can correct problems with the bite, crooked/crowded teeth, spacing, protruding teeth, and rotated teeth.
How Does the Invisalign System Work?
A comprehensive oral evaluation can help our dentist determine if Invisalign treatments are the right course of treatment for you or your teen. We will take 3D cone beam images of your head, mouth, and jawbones along with digital impressions of your upper and lower teeth when you come in for your consultation. These images will help us decide if Invisalign orthodontics is the best option, and if we proceed with this treatment, these scans and impressions will be sent to our special software that allows our Invisalign dentists to craft your personalized treatment plan. A series of clear, custom aligner trays is how this system gradually moves teeth to their proper places. Our partner Invisalign lab custom-makes your trays to match your exact treatment needs. Once your trays have been created and arrive in our office, you'll come back to try on the first set. At that visit, we will provide specific instructions for wearing your aligners.
Each set of aligner trays will be worn for two weeks, and it's essential to wear your trays in the order established by our team. This makes it easy to trade each set for the next in line after each two-week period and keeps you on track with your progress toward a straight, beautiful smile. Visits for monitoring your progress and making adjustments as needed will be scheduled with our dentists every 4 – 6 weeks. Typically it takes about a year to complete treatment with Invisalign adult aligners and Invisalign Teen aligners, but individual times can vary depending on your unique needs.
After Invisalign Orthodontic Treatment
You will need to wear an Invisalign retainer once your active orthodontic treatment is complete. A retainer works by holding your teeth in their new place until the jaw stabilizes. Custom-crafted Invisalign Vivera® retainers are made from the same clear, comfortable material as your aligner trays. We will explain how to properly care for your retainer daily and when you should wear your retainers. For the first few months after your Invisalign treatment, you will need to wear your retainers all the time. It's essential to strictly adhere to the recommendations for retainer usage given to you by our dentist. Failure to do so can cause a relapse in tooth positioning. Invisalign orthodontics is an investment you make in your smile, and continuing to follow recommendations for retainer usage after the active treatment stage helps protect it. When you visit Made Ya Smile Rayford for your routine cleaning and exams, we will monitor your bite and tooth position.
Is Invisalign Treatment Covered by Insurance?
Your dental insurance plan may offer some coverage for Invisalign treatments. To discover your specific benefits, a member of our business team will get in touch with your provider and examine your individual plan. At Made Ya Smile Rayford, we want our care to be convenient and affordable for your family and can help you find a solution that meets both your oral health needs and your budget. We offer a variety of convenient payment options, including CareCredit®, a low-interest financing option.
