Why Choose an Orthodontist?
About Our Practice
A straight smile is what you want, but the idea of braces gives you pause. Imagine a healthy, straight smile without brackets or wires. Consider Invisalign for a discreet alternative to braces and get a smile you’ll love to show off. All it takes is a consultation with Dr. Haeger to see if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign.
Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created specifically for you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth, similarly to a retainer or mouthguard.
Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, using the exact movements outlined in your treatment plan created by Dr. Haeger. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You will change to a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks.
To ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned, you’ll visit Haeger Orthodontics once every 6 to 10 weeks for evaluation. Total treatment time averages between 9 and 18 months. The average number of aligners worn during treatment is 18 to 30, but this will also vary from patient to patient. The results will be a beautiful smile with little interference to your daily life.
Since orthodontists specialize in misalignment issues of the teeth and jaws, your results will vastly improve if you get treatment from a qualified orthodontist like Dr. Haeger as compared to a general dentist. Orthodontists are trained to see the full picture during treatment planning and execution, rather than focusing on simply straightening your teeth.
For even better results, choose a board-certified orthodontist. Dr. Haeger has not only specialized in orthodontics but has done voluntary additional training and education to keep up with the latest techniques in orthodontics and clear aligner treatment. If you have a clear picture of what you want, Dr. Haeger can make that happen.
Invisalign clear aligners are highly comfortable as they utilize quality SmartTrack plastic that keeps your teeth moving toward alignment without discomfort.
One of the main reasons our patients love Invisalign is because it’s discreet. The aligners are made out of clear plastic and many people won’t even know you have them.
Braces and Invisalign are different in that braces utilize wires and brackets, and Invisalign is a clear aligner that uses SmartTrack material. With Invisalign, you get more discretion and don’t have to change your diet. However, sometimes braces are needed for severe orthodontic problems.
