Grand Rapids Invisalign® Clear Braces
We offer Invisalign clear braces in Grand Rapids MI. Invisalign is a series of clear, removable teeth aligners that our Grand Rapids Invisalign dentist uses as an alternative to traditional metal dental braces. Consider using Invisalign to get the beautiful straight teeth you've always wanted — without braces. A complimentary consultation is available with our Grand Rapids Invisalign dentist to find out if Invisalign Clear Braces are right for you.
Misaligned teeth can cause difficulties with speaking and eating, as well as keep your smile from looking its best. Comfortable, removable and nearly invisible, Invisalign Clear Braces offered at our convenient offices in Grand Rapids, can straighten your teeth without the conspicuous appearance of traditional metal braces. Rather than bonding irritating metal braces to your teeth, our dentist will provide you with a set of custom-molded Invisalign aligners that will gradually reposition your teeth without disrupting your lifestyle — simply remove the aligners to eat, brush, and floss.
Benefits Of Invisalign
Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you're wearing. So, you can smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign is made with 3-D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective.
Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment, plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. And no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your doctor's office getting adjustments. Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start, so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to the final position. You'll visit our Invisalign dentist about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
