Invisalign is a series of clear, removable teeth aligners that our Grand Rapids Invisalign dentist uses as an alternative to traditional metal braces. Consider using Invisalign to get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted — without braces.
A free consultation is available with our Invisalign provider to find out if clear teeth aligners are right for you. Misaligned teeth can cause speaking and eating problems, as well as keep your smile from looking its best.
Our dentists 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.
How Invisalign Works
You wear each set of clear 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 gradually into optimal alignment. You’ll visit our Grand Rapids cosmetic dentist about once every 6 weeks to ensure your dental treatment is progressing as planned.
Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of clear dental aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
Dr. Ritzema DDS at Complete Health Dentistry is dedicated to helping patients achieve beautiful healthy smiles through cosmetic dental treatments. To learn if you are a candidate for treatments, give our dentist in Grand Rapids a call at (616) 458-7267.
