Hires Dental Care has offered Invisalign® to our Toledo area dental patients for more than five years, and Dr. J. Eric Hires and Dr. Lauren M. Czerniak have recently undergone additional education for Invisalign therapy. Invisalign is the number one patient requested clear braces system in the United States and has provided straighter, healthier smiles to over one million patients.
Invisalign is the “clear choice” for patients needing mild to moderate orthodontia for both cosmetic and dental health concerns.
Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign can effectively treat a wide range of dental concerns:
- Crowded teeth
- Gapped teeth
Invisalign offers quick, easy and hassle free treatment for patients.
The first step to Invisalign therapy involves taking a mold of your mouth. This mold is sent through specialized Invisalign software to determine how your teeth should look after Invisalign treatment. This virtual model will show you a three-dimensional image of your teeth. You can watch each step of the treatment plan, tracking your teeth’s movements with each set of aligners. If you decide to move forward with Invisalign treatment, we will send the files to the Invisalign laboratory that will then generate several sets of clear plastic aligners.
You will return to our Toledo office to obtain your first set of aligners that should fit seamlessly and then return every 2 weeks for your next set. While the aligners should be removed for eating and cleaning your teeth, you should wear your aligners most of the day (23 hours a day is suggested).
The cost of Invisalign invisible braces depends on the individual treatment. Factors that determine pricing include the number of setups and aligners needed to achieve the desired straightening results. When compared to traditional metal braces, Invisalign is typically less expensive.
