Modern Orthodontic Dentistry Provides More Than a Beautiful Smile

Modern orthodontic dentistry at Hospital Dental Group offers everyone an opportunity to get the smile they’ve always dreamed of. Whether your household consists of just you or an entire crew, Dr. Anatoliy Ravin and the entire HDG team are dedicated to practicing the most advanced approaches in orthodontics to treat adults, children, adolescents, and individuals with special needs dental requirements. This means providing our patients with modern orthodontic treatments like Invisalign that come with several benefits beyond producing an attractive smile.

While many people associate orthodontic dentistry as the service that gets you to that long-desired, perfect smile, it also can address issues affecting the alignment of your jaw. If you’re jaw isn’t in harmony it can create issues with the way you bite, chew, speak, and yes, smile. So, while we’re all about propelling you toward an attractive smile, we’ll make sure it’s a functional one as well.

And, since HDG remains competitive and ahead of the game when it comes to practicing modern orthodontic dentistry, one of the services we provide for teens and adults is Invisalign. We routinely provide Invisalign treatment for a diverse range of clients who are thrilled with the impressive and lasting results.

While Invisalign straightens teeth, it can also address:

  • Orthodontic DentistryOverbite: Involves the top teeth overlapping the lower, bottom front teeth.
  • Underbite: Occurs when the lower front teeth jut out in front of the upper teeth.
  • Crossbite: Results when upper teeth sit inside the lower teeth, instead of on the outside.
  • Open Bite: Happens when upper teeth and lower teeth don’t touch, it’s referred to as an “open bite.”
  • Gaps in the Teeth: Refers to extra space in-between teeth
  • Crowding of the Teeth: Creates the appearance of overlapping, twisting, and/or bunched up teeth.

In addition to correcting the issues listed above, our patients enjoy a method of orthodontic dentistry that does not come with poking wires and metal brackets. Invisalign utilizes a system of clear aligners—a welcome improvement to visibly noticeable traditional braces. And, unlike braces that restrict what you can eat and drink, Invisalign won’t require you to give up crunchy carrots and apples (okay, and an occasional hard candy!)

How Invisalign Works

Before implementing Invisalign treatment, we’ll set up an exam with Dr. Ravin to provide a comprehensive evaluation of your teeth and mouth. During your visit, you’ll have an opportunity to share your smile goals, learn more about the full process of Invisalign, and ask questions. Once you and Dr. Ravin have determined you’re ready to move forward with Invisalign orthodontic treatment, we will:

  • Capture 3D imaging digital impressions of your teeth.
  • Create a custom treatment plan unique to your needs.
  • Provide a set of aligners to be worn for two to three weeks at a time as your smile begins to transform.

Throughout the duration of your Invisalign treatment, you’ll only require a few visits with Dr. Ravin—another added bonus! Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign customizable aligners are created in a series that doesn’t require frequent adjustments or alterations.

You will be instructed to wear your clear aligners for the majority of each 24-hour day to ensure best outcomes. Our patients love, the freedom that comes from being able to remove their Invisalign aligners for meals, an occasional important business or social event, sporting session, and of course, to brush and floss teeth as normal.
