Dr. Patient –
Statler Orthodontics has great news! As a premiere provider which puts us in the top5% of Invisalign providers in the country, our office has been selected to conduct a study using Invisalign Teen – just in time for back-to-school! If you or a friend are interested in treatment please contact the office to be a part of it – space is limited.
Invisalign Teen use a series of clear, almost invisible, removable aligners that combines Dr. Statler’s clinical treatment plan with proprietary 3-D, computer-generated software to make the unique, custom-made aligners. Each aligner gradually moves your teeth in very precise increments as prescribed. The Invisalign Teen aligner is specially designed to address key issues of compliance, eruption control, and root torque. If you’re not familiar with any of these terms, I’d be happy to talk to you about them and their importance for teen orthodontic treatment.
Over the past 14 years I have been practicing dentistry, I have seen tremendous changes in the design, shape, size and color of traditional braces. Fortunately for patients today, braces are smaller, more esthetic and often work more efficiently to help the Orthodontist achieve a healthy, beautiful smile in less time. Thanks to on-going research in orthodontics, a variety of these orthodontic “appliances” are available today. However, with all the new developments in appliances, I am most excited about Invisalign and Invisalign Teen! As a tooth moving tool (like braces), Invisalign can be the best choice for you and your family.
So why choose Invisalign Teen over braces?
Invisalign, like braces, is just a tool to help us Orthodontists move teeth. The square metal braces bonded to a patient’s teeth will not magically move those teeth into a beautiful smile without a proper diagnosis and treatment plan in place that has been set by an Orthodontic Specialist. Likewise, clear removable aligners (like Invisalign) will not magically move teeth without the experience of an Orthodontist who has expertise in that appliance. With our practice, you are a candidate for Invisalign!
Patients who wear Invisalign will have certain advantages over traditional braces:
- You will be able to brush and floss without dealing with the braces and wires
- No dietary restrictions because you can take them out when you eat
- You will have minimal discomfort compared to the roughness of braces and the wires that potentially stick your cheeks and tongue
- They fit the lifestyle of today’s active teen – sports, band, & extracurricular activities
- Finally, they are virtually invisible, which is great for teens….and adults too!
Again, if you would like to be a part of this Invisalign Teen Study please contact the office and set up a FREE consult.
