If you have ever felt self-conscious about crooked teeth, you owe it to yourself to ask our Grand Rapids cosmetic dentists about Invisalign®.
Like the name suggests, Invisalign are nearly invisible aligners designed to move your teeth little by little into a straighter smile. Invisalign is an alternative to traditional metal braces and is subtle enough to go undetected by family, friends, and coworkers.
Candidates for Invisalign
We recommend Invisalign for our teenage and adult patients with bite and teeth alignment issues. To be a candidate for Invisalign aligners, you will need to have the self-discipline necessary to wear your clear aligners 20 to 22 hours a day. It is important that you wear your aligners all day every day so teeth move according to schedule.
Invisalign clear aligners can correct the following issues:
- Crooked teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Open bite
How Invisalign Straightens Teeth
During your consultation, our Grand Rapids dentists will be able to determine if your bite and teeth alignment issues can be corrected with Invisalign. We will also be able to discuss the pros and cons of clear aligners so you can make an informed decision for your smile.
The most advanced clear aligner system in the world!
During Invisalign treatment, you will need to wear clear aligners 20 to 22 hours a day to move teeth into optimal alignment. The dental aligners are designed to exert enough pressure on teeth so that they gradually move into their final positions. As a result, you will experience temporary dental discomfort during the first couple days of wearing new aligners.
Every two weeks, one of our dentists will evaluate your progress and determine if you are ready for the next set of aligners in the series. Invisalign treatment for adults usually takes about 12 months.
Our Grand Rapids, MI, Invisalign dentists are dedicated to helping you achieve your best smile. If you are interested in learning if you are a candidate for Invisalign treatment, call GR Family Dental today at (616) 455-3020, or contact us online.
