Invisalign
Dayton, Ohio

Do you want straighter teeth but don’t like the appearance of braces? Many of our Cincinnati patients express this concern. Fortunately, cosmetic dentists, Dr. Gary Hardin and Dr. Tara Hardin, can recommend an aesthetically appealing alternative: Invisalign®.

To find out if you are eligible for arguably the best Invisalign® Dayton, Ohio has to offer and if its also your ideal solution for a straighter smile and a better bite, please call Hardin Advanced Dentistry today at (513) 342-0864, to book your initial consultation. Dr. Tara and Dr. Gary serve patients in and around the Greater Cincinnati and Mason areas of Ohio.

How Does Invisalign® Work?

You might hear Invisalign® referred to as “invisible braces.” Though our Dayton, Ohio Invisalign® and traditional braces operate on the same orthodontic principles, there are substantial differences in how each treatment achieves those results.

Invisalign® treatment consists of wearing clear, custom-made plastic aligners that gradually shift your teeth and bite over time. Unlike the metal brackets and wires used in regular braces, these aligner trays are removable.

Many of the same orthodontic issues commonly corrected by braces are treated just as effectively by Invisalign®, including:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crowding of teeth
  • Gaps between teeth

During your consultation, our Cincinnati dentists examine your teeth and bite, and review the cosmetic and functional changes you’d like to make to your smile. If you’re a candidate for Invisalign® we take impressions of your teeth to create a series of aligners precisely matched to the unique shape of your bite.

Invisalign® Advantages

The clear appearance and removable design of the aligner trays make Invisalign® a much more attractive alternative to braces. As the name suggests, most people won’t be able to tell you’re getting orthodontic treatment at all.

Along with no risk of “metal mouth,” other benefits of Invisalign® over braces include:

  • Comfort – aligners apply gradual, even force, and smooth plastic is gentler on your teeth and gums
  • Flexibility – you only have to wear the aligners for 20-22 hours each day
  • No food or activity restrictions – simply take the trays out before eating, playing sports, brushing your teeth, etc.
  • Better self-confidence – smile without feeling embarrassed about issues affecting your smile or an awkward metal apparatus
  • Convenience – instead of visiting the orthodontist to have braces tightened, you’ll simply start using a new aligner every two weeks

Dr. Gary and Dr. Tara will ask you to visit our office in the Greater Cincinnati area approximately every six weeks to make sure your teeth and bite are moving in accordance with your custom Invisalign® treatment plan. We also provide you with your next set of aligners at these visits.

A Perfect Smile in Less Time – Without Metal

Along with requiring fewer appointments than a patient with braces would need, another key benefit of Invisalign® is enjoying a straighter smile in less time. Treatment can be completed in as little as six months to a year – up to one-third of the time usually required for the same results with braces.

Invisalign® for Teens

Young people can have trouble with metal braces; they can be uncomfortable, and restrict the types of food that can be eaten. Teenagers are living through one of the more difficult periods in life, the transition between childhood and adulthood. Worries about appearance are common. Metal braces can be a problem for young people who are involved in sports or play certain instruments. Our Cincinnati Invisalign® aligners straighten teeth without the metal brackets and wires and are virtually invisible.

There are no food restrictions, as the aligners are removed before eating or drinking, and then snapped back into place. Many parents who bring a teen to Hardin Advanced Dentistry come to us for orthodontic treatment, and decide upon Invisalign® over metal braces. The cost of the aligners is comparable to metal braces. Is your teenager a candidate for Invisalign®? We offer a free consultation so you can get all of your questions answered personally.

Invisalign® for Adults

If you have come to the point in life in which you are ready to transform your smile, and correct flaws such as gaps, crooked teeth, overbite, underbite, or other problem, Invisalign® could be the perfect solution. The aligners are custom manufactured specifically for your alignment issue, and are virtually invisible when in place. You can go about your daily tasks, including your social and business activities while wearing your aligners – no one will notice. No worries about the hassle of metal braces and the problems associated with eating, drinking, or your smile. As you move through the various aligners, your teeth are slowly moved into place. You will know exactly how your teeth will look when the treatment is complete. Every person has unique issues, and the length of time it requires to move your teeth into the correct position varies. Not every person is a candidate. Are you? Call our dental office at (513) 342-0864 and schedule a free consultation for arguably the best Invisalign® Cincinnati has to offer. We look forward to meeting you and answering your questions.

Invisalign® Q & A

If you have questions about Invisalign®, we are happy to meet with you in a complimentary consultation. You can find out if you are a candidate for this treatment, how long your treatment would be, and get answers to your other questions. Below are answers to some common questions we hear about Invisalign®.

How long does it take to get Invisalign® braces?

The Invisalign® treatment process is customized for each patient. The first step involves a full dental exam, with digital photos, X-rays, and an impression, along with a bite test to evaluate how your uppers and lowers are connecting. This information is then used to create your custom aligners. You will then be able to see a visual animation of your teeth as they move through the various positions into perfect alignment. Dr. Tara Hardin has an artist’s eye – she reviews the treatment, with the ability to make subtle changes if needed. It typically takes several weeks for your custom set of aligners to be produced and sent back to our offices.

How long will it take for my teeth to straighten with Invisalign®?

Depending on your dental issues, the time can vary. A typical length of time is about 12 months, but more serious misalignment problems may require longer to achieve total smile transformation.

Does Invisalign® cost more than metal braces?

Every dental problem is unique to the individual. We believe quality of life is an important factor when making a decision about the type of orthodontic treatment – and Invisalign® is heads above in comfort. Typically, the cost of Invisalign® is reasonable when measured against the cost of metal braces, and the results are often achieved in less time.
