At John T. Green DDS, we believe our patients should always feel confident and happy with their smiles. However, that is not always the case, especially when their teeth are misaligned, gapped, or crowded. Dr. Green is aware of the impact crooked teeth have on dental aesthetics and function. He sympathizes with those who do not want a treatment which compromises their smile’s appearance such as metal braces. This is why our Dayton office offers Invisalign clear aligners --- an undetectable orthodontic method for adults and teenagers.
Invisalign clear braces are an alignment system utilizing high-quality plastic trays to subtly shift your teeth into their correct positions. These customized trays apply pressure in the areas where you need orthodontic intervention.
As your bite begins to re-align, you change your trays to continue straightening your teeth until completion.
Consider these advantages associated with Invisalign clear braces:
• Practically unnoticeable by others
• No dietary restrictions
• Safe to wear when doing sports
• Metal-free design
Invisalign clear trays may be the most aesthetic choice when it comes to orthodontics, but this treatment is not suited for everyone. This method is best for patients who require mild to moderate orthodontic work. For those with more severe cases of malocclusion, metal wire braces are still one of the best options. The patient must wear their
trays for 22 hours a day for treatment to be effective.
Invisalign Treatment at John T. Green, DDS
An initial consultation and examination are performed by Dr. Green to determine if Invisalign clear braces are the right path for you. Once you have decided to pursue this option, we take impressions of your smile and send them to the Invisalign lab so they may craft your invisible trays. Once they have completed your clear braces, they send them to our office along with predictions of treatment progress at specific time periods.
Our staff thoroughly discusses instructions, so you fully understand the Invisalign process and how to achieve the results you desire. Gaining the straight smile you’ve always wanted could take anywhere from six to 24 months depending on your individual case.
Once treatment is complete, you receive retainers to maintain your smile’s new alignment.
