Dr. Chad Ordelheide has been offering his patients orthodontic options for many years. He has successfully treated many cases with traditional braces; and more recently he has become certified in Invisalign. He is excited to offer this new service to our patients. Invisalign is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces, metal wires, or brackets. For more complex cases we refer to Dr’s Fink and Utt whose advanced training helps fix even the hardest cases.
The Invisalign treatment consists of a series of clear plastic aligners, created precisely to gently and gradually move your teeth into place. By using a series of clear removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth right before your eyes. Change them about every two weeks, and your teeth will move - little by little, week by week - until they have moved to the final position that Dr. Ordelheide has prescribed for you. Using advanced 3-D Technology, we can predetermine your treatment plan, and show you the results you would achieve, even before you start your treatment.
Some of the benefits of the Invisalign system include:
- Virtually Invisible – Only you will know you're wearing braces.
- Completely Removable – Eat, drink, brush and floss, or take them out for special occasions.
- Faster Treatment Time – No fixed metal brackets or wires to adjust means you'll spend less time visiting the doctor. You will receive a new set of aligners every other week during your Invisalign treatment. A trip to our office will occur every 6 weeks on average to ensure that your treatment is going according to plan.
Is Invisalign for me?
Invisalign can be used to treat the vast majority of common problems for adults and teens. Whether your smile needs minor improvements or more extensive adjustments, Invisalign can certainly help. It's successful in treating overly crowded or widely spaced teeth. It can also relieve more complex issues, including overbites, underbites and even crossbites. In fact, Dr. Ordelheide can use Invisalign clear aligners in all or part of just about any treatment plan.
