When teeth are crooked they form nooks that are difficult to clean and subsequently invite bacteria that can cause cavities and tooth loss. In addition to helping prevent decay and cavities, straightening the teeth can also alleviate a number of dental issues caused by misaligned teeth, such as jaw stress, trauma to jaw bone and jaw joints, chipping, grinding, and abnormal or uneven wear on the teeth.
When teeth are crooked or misaligned the fit between the gums and teeth can be loose, creating a gap where food particles may become lodged and invite gum disease or tooth decay. Overcrowding can also cause gums to turn red, become swollen, and pompt gum disease.
A Cleaner Mouth
With Invisalign, our Miami patients can remove their aligners for thorough brushing and flossing, which is not always possible with traditional metal braces. Furthermore, braces are notorious for trapping food. Invisalign aligners are removed before eating, thereby eliminating this dental hygiene problem. Reducing the likelihood of oral bacteria also lessens the chances of mouth sores, bad breath, and tooth loss.

Frequently Asked Questions
Am I too old for Invisalign?
No, you aren’t too old for Invisalign. While most people think of braces as being for teenagers, Invisalign treatment has no upper age limit. Though adult teeth are more securely in place, they can still be moved to straighten your smile.
Adult treatment with Invisalign is often successful because you’re more likely to wear your aligners responsibly. Though your treatment can take a little longer than a teenager’s Invisalign treatment, Dr. Grussmark will make sure you get the smile you deserve.
Will Invisalign give me a lisp?
When you begin Invisalign treatment, you’ll have to get used to wearing the aligners. During this time, you may speak a little differently. Most people get used to the feeling of aligners over their teeth within a few days.
After you get used to wearing Invisalign, you’ll be able to speak normally. Your speech won’t be permanently affected by wearing the aligners. If you’re concerned about your speech, we recommend practicing reading out loud or speaking to friends and family to get used to the aligners.
