Using Orthodontic appliances such as Invisalign

While traditional metal braces are a great solution, some patients seek a more discreet way to achieve the smile they’ve always wanted. With treatments such as Invisalign, which uses removable orthodontic appliances, patients can achieve the smile they’ve always wanted without fixed orthodontic appliances such as traditional braces, which are attached to the teeth and connected with archwires.

Orthodontic appliances for all ages

Dr. Edgar Mendieta of Columbus, Ohio, is a dedicated Orthodontic professional who can assist patients of all ages with Orthodontic treatment. A popular type of orthodontic appliance is Invisalign. This treatment option uses a removable set of aligner trays that gently reposition the teeth within the smile. Invisalign is popular for children, teenagers, and adults who want a more discreet treatment to realign their teeth. 

How are Invisalign aligners used?

Ortho appliances such as Invisalign are used to achieve realignment of the smile. They are made with clear plastic aligners that are customized for the patient’s smile. This starts with computerized impressions of the patient’s current smile. Invisalign software then designs your new smile and creates a series of clear trays used to reposition the teeth and give you a smile you’ve always wanted! To get the best results in the quoted time, patients must be diligent in using their trays as directed by Dr. Mendieta and his team.
