Your Trusted East Lansing orthodontist

Dr Ed Grubaugh

Dr. Ed Grubaugh grew up in the Lansing area. He majored in Chemistry at Michigan State University. After earning his Bachelors’ degree in only three years, he was accepted in the University of Michigan’s School of Dentistry, where he would go on to graduate at the top of his class. He earned his Master’s of Science in Oral Biology while specializing in orthodontics at The Ohio State University.

Dr. Grubaugh is a diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics (Only one-third of all orthodontists are board certified). His research interests include digital orthodontic imaging and how technology can make orthodontic treatment more efficient. A leading orthodontic journal recently published some of his research. In addition to his full-time practice, Dr. Grubaugh teaches at The Ohio State University’s Department of Orthodontics as a Clinical Assistant Professor.

East Lansing Braces

Traditional braces are one of the most effective tools we have for straightening teeth. They consist of metal or ceramic brackets that are attached to the teeth and connected by wires and rubber bands or elastics. With regular adjustments, these components apply gentle pressure that gradually moves the teeth into their desired positions.

Braces are an excellent choice for correcting a range of oral issues, from simple to complex. They can work faster at closing gaps and aligning teeth than other options, which can reduce overall treatment time. Braces are also a cost-effective option for patients on a budget, as they don't require the complex technology or expensive equipment of newer treatments.

East Lansing Invisalign

Invisalign is a popular alternative to traditional braces, especially among our teen and adult patients. Instead of brackets and wires, Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually move the teeth into alignment.

Made of a comfortable, virtually invisible plastic material, Invisalign aligners are switched out every 1-2 weeks for the next in the series. They must be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment to be effective. Invisalign tends to be most effective when used to correct common orthodontic issues, although it may not be suitable for all cases.
