If you are uncomfortable with the idea of wearing traditional metal braces, Invisalign® may be the alternative solution you’ve been looking for. Invisalign® is an innovative method of orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear teeth aligners to gently shift your teeth into their ideal position. Because these aligners are virtually unnoticeable while you’re wearing them, Invisalign® is one of our most popular orthodontic options among adults and older teenagers.

Invisalign® is capable of correcting many different types of mild to moderate bite problems. Most people only require a treatment period of around 12 months to fully straighten their teeth.

The Benefits of Invisalign®

Custom-made to fit snugly over your teeth and gums, Invisalign® trays are switched out every two weeks to progressively move your bite towards its proper alignment. Unlike clear braces, Invisalign® does this without any brackets and wires, making the process of correcting your bite considerably more comfortable.

In addition to comfort and aesthetics, the ability to remove your aligner trays comes with a number of other benefits. The removable Invisalign® trays:

Invisalign® Candidates

Although Invisalign® is capable of correcting a wide variety of orthodontic problems, it may not the best option for patients with moderate, severe or complex bite issues. Dr. Gross will carefully examine your teeth and bite to determine whether or not you are a good candidate for Invisalign®. If you are not, he will recommend a different orthodontic treatment method that will better meet your needs.

Invisalign® trays must be worn for at least 22 hours every day. Although your trays are removable, they should be kept in place at all times, unless you are eating or brushing your teeth. In order to achieve the results you want, you must be willing to diligently wear the aligner trays and follow all of Dr. Gross’s advice.
