Invisalign and Teeth Straightening
Myobrace and Invisalign: Modern teeth straightening options in Franklin and Centerville Areas
Most people want to have straighter, more attractive teeth, but the idea of living with a mouthful of obvious brackets and wires for several years holds them back. We offer teeth straightening options for patients of all ages, that don’t look, feel, or work like conventional braces. With Myobrace or Invisalign, patients in the Franklin area (including Bellbrook, Lebanon, Springboro, and Miamisburg) look great while they straighten.
Myobrace takes a different approach to straightening teeth and jaws, based on correction of myofunctional habits. Mouth breathing, reverse swallowing, tongue thrusting, and thumb sucking are the underlying causes of crooked teeth. Myobrace is a series of dental appliances you wear overnight and for one to two hours each day. Combined with a program of exercise to improve breathing, tongue posture, and muscle function, Myobrace contributes to healthy facial development and a beautiful smile.
The Myobrace system is ideal for patients six to ten years of age, but it can also be beneficial for teens and adults.
Invisalign uses a robust computer software system to turn three dimensional impressions of your mouth into a series of crystal clear aligners. The smooth plastic fits comfortably, and most patients adapt quickly to drinking water and speaking while wearing aligners. Because aligners are removable, you are able to eat foods you love, and keep your mouth sparkling clean.
You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, before advancing to the next set, gradually moving teeth into desired positions with low force. Invisalign is a good choice for teens and adults. The system can be used to address minor misalignment or more complex bite issues. A typical treatment plan is completed in a year, and your dentist monitors progress at six-week intervals.
