Dr. Jacob Grapevine is a Plano Invisalign® provider, offering this convenient and comfortable orthodontic treatment option to teens and adults. Invisalign is one of the most popular and effective ways to address both cosmetic and dental health concerns that can benefit from mild to moderate orthodontic treatment.
Why Should You Fix Orthodontic Problems?
Orthodontic issues are chronic conditions, meaning if the alignment issues are not corrected, the teeth will continue to shift and move. The cosmetic issues are the most obvious concern, but crooked or misaligned teeth can contribute to a number of health and functional dental risks such as:
Depending on the person’s specific condition, the problems can cascade into more complicated bite problems and TMJ related disorders. Treating orthodontic problems early allows for the most conservative treatment options.
Invisalign can treat crooked teeth, crowded teeth, overbite and crossbite with clear retainers that are comfortable, easy to use and discreet- no one has to know you are wearing braces.
Enjoying your normal diet and keeping your teeth clean is easy with removable aligners that can are worn in a series for about two weeks each.
After an initial consultation, Dr. Grapevine will use Invisalign software to plan your treatment and address your concerns.
Most patients will receive several sets of retainers, each pair is worn for about two weeks to gradually reposition the teeth. The length of treatment depends on your condition as well as your goals. Treatment is typically complete in a year or less. Special retainers and follow up visits with Dr. Grapevine will help you to maintain your straighter smile.
