Hires Dental Care is a certified provider of Invisalign® in the Perrysburg, OH area. Invisalign® is clear braces worn for 6 to 12 months to straighten teeth. Invisalign® uses a unique, ultra-thin, hard-soft plastic material. The aligners are custom made for the patient using impressions of the teeth. A series of aligners is made for the patient, the total number of aligners dependent on the desired results. Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks before moving on to the next set. Throughout treatment, Dr. J. Eric Hires or another dentist at Hires Dental Care will monitor your progress.
Invisalign® is the number one patient requested clear braces system in the United States. Invisalign® is an orthodontic treatment that is comfortable, convenient and virtually unnoticeable.

Invisalign® is used to treat a variety of orthodontic concerns including:

The first step in the Invisalign® process involves taking a mold of your mouth at our Perrysburg, OH area dentist office. This mold is sent through specialized Invisalign® software to determine how your teeth should look after Invisalign® treatment. These will be used to accurately plan your treatment.
With this specialized software, you can see each step of the treatment plan, tracking your teeth’s movements with each set of aligners. We will send the files to the Invisalign® laboratory that will then generate several sets of clear plastic aligners to be worn for a specified amount of time each day. The number of aligners and length of your Invisalign® treatment will depend on the problem(s) being addressed and desired result.
You will return to our Perrysburg, OH area cosmetic dentistry office to obtain your first set of aligners 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).
Your last aligner will be a retainer, which should be worn as directed each day to keep your teeth from shifting and maintain results.
The primary reason Dr. Hires’ patients prefer Invisalign® to metal braces is that the aligners are thin and clear therefor no one knows your wearing braces. People also love the fact that Invisalign® aligners are removable, allowing you to eat comfortably, brush and floss normally, and remove trays for special occasions without disrupting your treatment. A few reasons why Invisalign® is a better choice compared to metal braces are:
- No dietary restrictions
- Easy removal for cleaning and routine dental care
- Discreet treatment
- No risk of tooth enamel staining from permanently attached brackets
