Richard Grant DDS, MS

The Invisalign® Alternative

While most individuals seek orthodontic intervention for aesthetic purposes, this specialty branch of dentistry goes beyond helping you achieve a visibly-appealing smile. Straighter, properly-aligned teeth prevent overcrowding, gaps, and improper bite, and support long-lasting oral health.

With innovative orthodontic treatments like Invisalign®, individuals looking to address their dental misalignment issues without the use of noticeable, traditional metal braces have a discreet and reliable solution.  At Braces By Grant, Dr. Grant we have been delivering skilled Invisalign treatment for over a decade.

To provide the best orthodontic service throughout San Diego County, Dr. Grant has three locations; Carmel Valley, Encinitas, and 4S Ranch. Contact our skilled team today to schedule your initial Invisalign consultation!

What You Can Expect at Your Invisalign Consultation

Dr. Grant and his team begin by establishing trust with an educational and honest conversation about your dental alignment needs and your aesthetic goals. After we understand all your concerns, we proceed with a detailed examination of your current dental health.

Dr. Grant performs a thorough evaluation before outlining an effective treatment plan tailored to suit your needs. We complete a full assessment of your bite, inspect each tooth, and take precise digital x-rays.

These images are then sent to our trusted Invisalign technicians who will craft a treatment strategy that is as unique as your smile. We will instruct you about each step and how to care for your clear aligners. Best of all, you will get to see a digital image of what your smile will look like after all the phases of treatment are complete.   

Invisalign Teen and Express Treatment Plans

For responsible teens, we offer the Invisalign Teen® system which has been strategically designed to adapt to an adolescents’ developing smile. These trays are replaced about every two weeks and include indicators that show whether teens are staying compliant with treatment guidelines.

If your teeth have simple cosmetic imperfections, we provide an express approach to our Invisalign treatment, designed to deliver efficient results without the need for metal braces. This treatment is ideal if you have an upcoming event, such as a wedding, graduation.

Living with Invisalign Clear Aligners

To achieve the best results, patients should wear their clear braces 22 hours per day. You can remove the trays before meals and during your at-home hygiene routine. Invisalign is easy to maintain, simply rinse the aligners with lukewarm water after meals and at night to prevent the buildup of bacteria.

Are You a Good Candidate for Invisalign?

If you have mild to moderate malocclusion and are in good oral health, then you are most likely a good candidate for Invisalign treatments. Individuals with active oral health issues such as periodontal disease, decay, or cavities will need to treat these issues before any orthodontic treatment can be started.  A healthy smile that is free of infection ensures your aligner treatment will achieve the best results.
