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.
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.
