Braces for Children & Adults | Invisalign

Grand Rapids Braces Dentist

At River Valley Dental we provide braces for adults, teens and children that straighten teeth to help an individual to effectively bite, chew and speak. Straight teeth contribute to healthy teeth and gums. Properly aligned teeth and jaws may alleviate or prevent physical health problems. Teeth that work better also tend to look better. An attractive smile is a pleasant “side effect” of straightening teeth with braces.

An attractive smile is a wonderful asset. It contributes to self-esteem, self-confidence and self-image—important qualities at every age. A pleasing appearance is a vital component of self-confidence. A person's self-esteem often improves as braces treatment brings teeth, lips and face into proportion. In this way, braces treatment can benefit social and career success, as well as improve a person’s general attitude toward life.

Braces for adolescence and adults

At River Valley Dental we provide braces for children who are 7-10 years of age. This treatment develops the jaws and takes advantage of the growth of both the maxilla and mandible.

Braces and Invisalign are for adolescence and adults. Invisalign is a treatment that is appealing to individuals who are trying to conceal their efforts in straightening their teeth. In addition Invisalign allows for better enunciation during speech and ease of flossing and brushing because they are removable.

Invisalign is the best way to straighten your teeth without having to live with the "metal mouth" look of traditional braces. That's because Invisalign is a series of clear, removable, plastic aligners that are custom-made for your teeth. It's easy to get started. First, Dr. Spraggins will talk to you about your goals and examines your teeth to ensure they will benefit from the Invisalign system. He then writes a detailed treatment plan and orders a full set of customized aligners. If you’re looking for an Invisalign Dentist in Grand Rapids, call us today.
