With Invisalign, Dr. Grussmark can fix gaps, uneven spacing, crooked teeth, and other orthodontic flaws up to 2X faster than traditional braces. Best of all, Invisalign treatment uses clear aligners that are virtually invisible and removable, eliminating the discomfort and embarrassment that comes with metal braces.
If you’re interested in this innovative treatment, read on to learn if you’re an ideal candidate for Invisalign.
Issues that Invisalign Can Correct
Invisalign can treat a number of orthodontic flaws, including:
- Uneven tooth spacing
- Wide gaps between teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Crowded teeth
If you suffer from any of these issues, Invisalign could be the solution you’re looking for. While many dentists believe that Invisalign can only fix mild to moderate orthodontic issues, Dr. Grussmark has had success treating even the most complex cases. With over 40,000 orthodontic cases behind him, Dr. Grussmark is an experienced and skilled orthodontist that will earn your trust.
Basic Guidelines for Invisalign Candidacy
An ideal Invisalign candidate is someone who:
- Doesn’t have untreated cavities/tooth decay
- Doesn’t have gum disease
- Practices good oral hygiene
- Doesn’t smoke
- Is willing to follow instructions
What Age is Best for Invisalign Treatment?
The majority of our Invisalign patients are adults who wish to fix orthodontic flaws without the inconvenience of wearing metal braces. However, Invisalign can be used for patients who are age 12 or older, as long as their second molars have erupted.
Invisalign Teen offers a great alternative to braces for our younger patients, many of whom are already self-conscious about their appearance and don’t need to be burdened with additional insecurity. Thanks to Invisalign clear aligners, we can help teens and adults smile with equal confidence.
If you’ve undergone restorative dental work, such as receiving a dental bridge or crown, Dr. Grussmark will need to examine your teeth to ensure your restoration won’t interfere with the Invisalign treatment.
It’s very rare that a crown causes any issues. Bridges can sometimes interfere with the results you’re looking for, though some patients with bridges have still achieved stunning smiles through Invisalign. Ultimately, Dr. Grussmark evaluates all restorations on a case-by-case basis.
Is everyone a candidate for Invisalign?
If you want to correct orthodontic imperfections without altering your appearance or inconveniencing your lifestyle, Invisalign might be just what you’re looking for. Invisalign can straighten crooked or gapped teeth, or correct issues with malocclusion such as overbite, underbite, crossbite, and open bite.
Even if you’ve been told in the past that Invisalign isn’t for you, Dr. Grussmark may be able to straighten your smile with Invisalign. Contact our office today to schedule your free consultation by calling (305) 842-3672.
Can I get Invisalign on just my top teeth?
Ideal candidates for single arch treatment have gapped, crooked, or misaligned teeth. Single arch treatments are determined on a case-by-case basis. If you have issues with your bite, Dr. Grussmark may recommend a complete treatment to ensure your teeth fit together properly.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Grussmark will examine your oral health and determine which treatment would benefit you the most.
