For many patients, crooked teeth are considered a cosmetic concern and something they may choose to live with to avoid the cost of treatment. But straightening teeth often goes beyond enhancing your natural smile. It improves overall dental health in the process. Dr. Davis is a Worcester, MA Invisalign® provider and often recommends it for teens and adult patients with mild to moderate orthodontic issues.
Crooked teeth are often difficult to brush and floss effectively, increasing the chances of developing tooth decay or gum disease. Teeth that are misaligned can also be the underlying cause for bite disorders such as TMJ, which can lead to worn and damaged teeth. Straightening your smile with Invisalign can support lasting dental health and a comfortable bite.
Do you have crooked teeth but dread the thought of bulky metal braces?

- Gaps between teeth

What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Patients enjoy many added benefits when they choose Invisalign clear aligners. Invisalign aligners are custom designed to the specifications of each patient, improving comfort and shortening treatment times. Clear aligners are made from an ultra-thin, soft plastic that does not irritate or damage soft tissues.
Benefits of Invisalign include:
- Discreet; they are invisible and no one has to know you are wearing braces
- Removable retainers allow easy brushing and flossing
- Allow for routine oral hygiene
- Reduces tooth decay
- Reduces risk of tooth discoloration
- Effective at straightening teeth
- smooth, plastic material is comfortable and does not irritate soft tissues
How Does Invisalign Work?
Using a custom fit set of clear aligners, Invisalign will gradually and comfortably realign your teeth. Dr. Davis will design a series of aligners for your specific dental needs. You will wear the comfortable aligners every day, switching to the next aligner when determined appropriate by your dentist.
Invisalign retainers are removable for your convenience and comfort. With traditional metal braces, food particles can build up in the brackets. Traditional braces often caused damage or left behind stained teeth. Because Invisalign is removable you can maintain your oral hygiene routine and remove aligners when eating to avoid build up. Patients who use Invisalign tend to experience less post treatment tooth decay.
Invisalign aligners are made of a soft, nonirritating material that will not scratch or damage your gums or cheeks. The clear material is practically invisible and most people will not notice you are even wearing them. Finally, there is a way to straighten your teeth and maintain your confidence.

Who is Invisalign for?
Invisalign is for adult and teen patients who suffer from mild to moderate orthodontic issues. This teeth alignment treatment is perfect for patients who have busy lives and do not want interruptions. Invisalign also comes with a system for parents to make sure their teens are wearing their aligners properly and for enough time.
I used to have braces and now my teeth are crooked again. Can Invisalign help?
Invisalign is a great treatment for people who suffer from orthodontic relapse. Most people never want to experience wearing metal braces ever again! This clear aligner system will straighten your teeth again with out all the negative consequences of wearing traditional braces.
I have dental restorations. Can I still use Invisalign?
This depends on many factors including what type of restoration you have and where it is located. Since Invisalign is designed to move teeth individually, people who have a dental bridge will not qualify for this type of orthodontic treatment. We recommend scheduling a consultation with your dentist. Here they can examine your mouth and determine if you are an Invisalign candidate.
