Modern Alternatives To Traditional Braces

Dr. HagShenas discusses why dental implants will last you a lifetime.


Without The Hassles

Having a straight smile is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also provides many health benefits as well. Crooked or misaligned teeth are often corrected through the help of orthodontics. And while we do offer traditional braces, many patients do not like having a mouth full of metal brackets and wires for many years. Thanks to advancements in dental technology, Dr. Amir HagShenas is proud to offer patients effective alternatives to traditional braces in the form of Invisalign® clear aligners and FASTBRACES® technology. Invisalign and FASTBRACES remove many of the hassles of traditional braces and often provide results in a much shorter treatment time.

Invisalign® and Other Clear Aligner Braces

Invisalign has revolutionized orthodontics by making tooth alignment possible with virtually invisible removable aligners. The aligners must be worn for 20-22 hours a day but can be removed to allow for improved teeth cleaning and to eat without restriction. Dr. HagShenas will take virtual images of your mouth and teeth and design a series of aligners that gradually and gently shift your teeth into proper alignment. Every week or two patients will change their aligners for a new set until they achieve optimum results. Typically, Invisalign can achieve straight teeth faster and more comfortably than traditional braces without the embarrassment of a mouth full of metal.
