At Papandreas Orthodontics, we offer a full range comprehensive orthodontic treatments that includes Invisalign as well as braces. Today, traditional metal braces are much smaller, smoother, faster, more comfortable, easier for the patients to manage. This means that not only are treatment times shorter, but the results that we are able to achieve are even better.

So many of the young kids today come in and, believe it or not, are actually asking for the braces and we’re talking as many out of the braces as we are recommending them because they’re not ready. But when they are finally ready, they’re all about Invisalign.

Invisalign clear aligners are a fantastic option that has been around for some time now, so it has a proven track record. In essence, it’s a series of clear, virtually invisible trays which slowly straighten teeth with each tray that you place in your mouth. The trays are removable, so even though you’ll need wear them ideally for 22 to 24 hours each day, you can take them out when you eat and to brush your teeth.

Got a big presentation to deliver or a special event to attend? You can just take your aligner tray out, which makes it very convenient – especially for people who have very busy schedules, are in the public eye, or simply don’t like the appearance of traditional metal braces.

Depending on your particular case, treatment times with Invisalign are quite often shorter than that of traditional metal braces. When you come in for your free new patient consultation (or begin your virtual consultation) we will evaluate your smile and make a recommendation based on your unique needs.

We’ve found that most of patients – teenagers and adults alike – are good candidates for Invisalign and it costs virtually the same as braces. So which treatment you choose should not be a decision of value, but rather which treatment suits your lifestyle best and will give you the beautiful smile you deserve.

Papandreas Orthodontics is a family-focused practice offering Invisalign, braces, and other orthodontic treatment options in a friendly and relaxing environment. To schedule your complimentary new patient consultation, please contact our Brunswick or North Royalton, OH office.
