The Invisalign Process
Invisalign consists of a series of clear aligners that you replace every two weeks or so as they gradually shift your smile into the perfect position. Each aligner is custom-made just for you based on the treatment information that Dr. Grussmark provides to Invisalign.
The initial step in the Invisalign process is a thorough exam by Dr. Grussmark. He’ll create a precise impression of your smile which he submits to Invisalign so they can begin crafting your aligners.
Align Technology will use advanced technology to create your custom aligners. The Invisalign course of treatment typically takes about 12 months to complete, but every case is unique and your total time of treatment could vary.
Health Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign doesn’t just make your smile look fantastic — it will also dramatically improve your oral health. Crooked teeth are difficult to clean and they create pockets where plaque can accumulate.
Plaque is a major cause of gum disease, a serious dental infection that results in bleeding, soreness, swelling, and loose teeth. When left untreated, gum disease can eventually lead to the loss of one or more teeth. By making it easier to care for your smile, Invisalign helps protect you from gum disease.
Crooked teeth or a misaligned bite also contribute to the following health issues:
- Jaw tension
- Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD)
- Eating and speaking difficulties
Frequently Asked Questions
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign uses clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten your teeth into the desired position. You’ll receive a new set of aligners roughly every two weeks, with each set designed to act on certain teeth. Overall, the process works up to two times faster than metal braces.
What does Invisalign look like?
Invisalign aligners are made from a clear thermoplastic material that’s virtually invisible. This means you can smile with confidence and avoid the embarrassment often caused by metal braces. Most people won’t even realize that you’re wearing aligners unless you tell them.
Will Invisalign work for me?
Invisalign can correct most mild to moderate orthodontic issues, such as overbites, underbites, crowded teeth, gapped teeth, and more. During your free consultation with Dr. Grussmark, he’ll examine your teeth closely and determine if Invisalign is the ideal treatment for you.
