Invisalign

Your Barrington RI Invisalign Specialist

Thank you for choosing Dr. Jordan Jaffe as your Portsmouth, Bristol and Barrington orthodontist. We work hard to ensure that each patient receives a personalized treatment plan that fits best with his or her budget and lifestyle. We are proud to offer Invisalign for both adults and teens. Read below for more information about Invisalign® clear aligners.

What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign straightens your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. Invisalign aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by Dr. Jaffe. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan.

The aligners are virtually undetectable, which means hardly anyone will know that you’re straightening your teeth.

How Does the Invisalign® Process Work?

First, you will have a complimentary consultation with your Barrington, Bristol and Portsmouth RI Invisalign specialist, Dr. Jaffe, complete with pictures and X-rays. Once Dr. Jaffe has determined that you are a candidate for Invisalign, we will create a virtual model of your teeth using our iTero scanner. With this new technology, we can even provide you an animated prediction of your Invisalign treatment progress!

Once we have attained your images, Dr. Jaffe will map out a very specific treatment plan, including the exact movement of your teeth. Based on Dr. Jaffe’s very specific instructions, a series of custom-made, clear aligners is then created specifically for you. These aligners are made of a smooth, comfortable, BPA-free plastic that won’t irritate your cheeks and gums.

Approximately one month after your scan is complete, you will return to the office for delivery of your first sets of aligners. Typically we will give you 3-4 sets of aligners. As each set of aligners is worn for 2 weeks, your appointment intervals will be 6-8 weeks apart. With each office visit, we will monitor your progress and make adjustments as needed. It’s that easy!

Who is Eligible for Invisalign®?

Only a certified Invisalign Orthodontist can tell you for sure if you are a candidate for Invisalign Treatment. At your initial consultation, Dr. Jaffe will perform a comprehensive examination and discuss your suitability as an Invisalign patient.

If you are interested in an Invisalign consultation, there are several things to keep in mind. First, Dr. Jaffe has been Invisalign certified for over 10 years, and has completed several hundred cases. Do not be confused into thinking that everyone offering Invisalign has the same level of experience and expertise. Invisalign is not a consumer product where everyone providing the service uses it in the same way or with the same clinical excellence. In fact, orthodontic training and Invisalign knowledge vary greatly from one provider to another.

What are the Advantages of Invisalign®?

  • Discreet – Invisalign is nearly invisible, so no need to feel self-conscious about wearing metal braces.
  • No Dietary Restrictions – With Invisalign, you have the freedom to eat what you want.
  • Easier to Maintain Oral Hygiene – Invisalign is removable so you can take them out to brush and floss like you normally would.
  • No Emergencies – Since there are no wires or braces, there is no chance of anything coming loose.  This eliminates the possibility of after-hour emergencies.
  • Comfort – There are no braces or wires to rub against teeth and gums.
