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
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.

Can I get Invisalign on just my top teeth?
Single arch Invisalign treatments are determined on a case-by-case basis. If you have issues with your bite alignment, Dr. Grussmark may recommend a complete Invisalign treatment. During your initial consultation, Dr. Grussmark will examine your oral health and determine which treatment will benefit you the most.
Can I remove my braces and get Invisalign?
Depending on your current situation, you may begin treatment with Invisalign even if you haven’t completed treatment with braces. This depends on several factors, such as your oral health and the severity of your misalignment.
Can I get Invisalign If I've had braces before?
Many patients who’ve had braces in the past have had their teeth shift back to their original positions. Invisalign can help correct misaligned teeth and offer permanent results. Teeth tend to move and shift with age, so it’s common for patients to undergo the Invisalign treatment as a follow-up to metal braces.
Can I get Invisalign if I have a TMJ disorder?
If your TMJ problem isn’t severe enough to interfere with treatment, you may be eligible for Invisalign. Patients with mild TMJ issues can wear Invisalign to help correct misalignment. However, patients with more severe cases may not qualify for Invisalign, as it could lead to complications. It’s best to schedule an appointment at our Miami office so Dr. Grussmark can assess your situation and determine if Invisalign is right for you.
