At Grubaugh Orthodontics, we’re proud to offer you a winning smile without all the hassles associated with more involved appliances that keep you from living your best life. Want to know one huge benefit of Invisalign? Chances are, most won’t even realize you’re undergoing treatment. The award-winning Invisalign process consists of a set of clear, lightweight plastic aligners that easily fit over your teeth and are specially formulated to correct your specific orthodontic issues. One huge benefit is that they are removable, which makes it a breeze to eat, drink, brush and floss. Patients report that Invisalign is consistently more comfortable than traditional metal bracket braces, and the results speak for themselves – a stunning smile, every time. We’ll begin your first free consult at either our Lansing or DeWitt locations by taking a series of digital scans and X-rays on the cutting-edge iTero Digital Scanner in order to develop a 3D image of your mouth, including the superficial and deeper set of your teeth and jaws. Then, we’ll make your first set of custom-fitted aligners from these images. That means your aligners will fit perfectly, and cut straight to the issues that you need worked on. From here, you’re on the way to a clearer, straighter smile. Here at Grubaugh Orthodontics, a standard course of Invisalign treatment will last anywhere between 9-15 months, during which time we’ll generally develop 18-30 aligners for use in correcting your orthodontic issues. It’s important to remember to wear your trays for roughly 22 hours a day. However, the flexibility of Invisalign means that you can remove them for cleaning as well as eating. That saves a LOT of time and effort. You’ll work directly with Dr. Grubaugh to develop a plan that works for you. Chances are, you’ll begin to see improvements to your smile in just a few months. Bringing Brighter Smiles to DeWitt & Lansing You’ll love the modern approach taken by Invisalign when it comes to straightening your teeth. The clear aligning trays, made from high-quality Smartrack proprietary thermoplastic, are designed for you and your exact corrective needs. The high-tech material is smooth, comfortable, and practically undetectable, which is great for clients for whom a low profile is important to their treatment goals. Invisalign works by applying gentle, consistent pressure to the teeth, allowing for a comfortable and gradual process designed entirely for you by Dr. Grubaugh. Some of the many advantages when it comes to your custom Invisalign treatment at Lansing and DeWitt include the lack of any annoying metal brackets to attach or wires to tighten. All there is to it is rotating your new set of aligners every couple of weeks until your treatment is complete. Woo-Hoo. There’s a reason Invisalign has quickly grown to become one of the most sought-after orthodontic treatments available. Dr. Grubaugh and the team have been treating our patients with Invisalign for many years, and we’re proud to offer this exciting treatments to our DeWitt and Lansing patients. The Invisalign Advantage Your Invisalign clear plastic aligners have a bunch of great benefits as compared to traditional metal braces, not least of which is the fact that the smooth Smartrack plastic won’t break or snap and irritate your mouth. You won’t have to limit your diet to braces-friendly offerings thanks to Invisalign’s easy-peasy removable design. That means popcorn and gummies are back on the menu. (In moderation, please.) Speaking of which, you should keep in mind that your Invisalign aligners should be removed any time you eat, and whenever you drink anything other than water. This is a must in order to ensure your aligners maintain their cleanliness and ability to properly adjust your teeth. Another tip – to prevent staining, you’ll want to be sure and give your teeth a thorough cleaning prior to putting your aligners back on after you eat. Of course, brushing and flossing are much easier than with traditional braces, since you don’t have to work around any brackets and wires.
