Invisalign

Clear . . . Removable . . . Comfortable

Without bands, brackets or wires, Invisalign is a virtually invisible solution to straighten teeth. In fact, almost no one will know you are wearing them unless you tell. By using a series of clear, removable aligners that are changed about every 2 weeks, we gradually move your teeth toward the smile you’ve always wanted.

One of the new technologies you’ve probably been reading about is Invisalign. These clear removable appliances are made of thin plastic. They are comfortable, easy to wear and talk with, so even your friends won’t even know you’re having your teeth straightened.
There are even more advantages to Invisalign. You can take out the appliances to eat and brush and floss your teeth. The movement is so subtle that your teeth are seldom sore. The inside of your lips and cheeks don’t have to “ toughen up” to get used to the constant roughness of the metal brackets. Eat anything you want. No problems with broken brackets or loose wires.

Well if they’re this good, why do people wear metal braces?

  1. Some people forget to wear them ( or lost them), so treatment slows (or is stopped) – must be worn 20 hours daily.
  2. Some cases are so involved that the strength and versatility of metal braces is required.
  3. The cost of braces with invisalign is higher.

I really enjoy working with Invisalign. In fact, if you go to www.invisalign.com, you’ll see that I am one of their recommended orthodontists for Troy Ohio Invisalign and Dayton Ohio Invisalign needs.
