Dr. Hagood has completed specialized training with the Invisalign® Company. In combination with his advanced training in esthetic and functional dentistry, he is able to utilize Invisalign aligners very effectively.
Because of the ease, comfort, and clarity of the aligners, Invisalign® treatment is the top choice for orthodontic treatment among adults nationwide. The treatment is especially helpful for individuals with crowded teeth or spaces between them. The good news is Invisalign treatment is not only an appropriate choice for most patients, but also provides optimal benefits for them.
In most cases, Invisalign® treatment takes 12 to 18 months to complete and is not more expensive than bracket and wire braces. If you accept treatment, your aligners will be custom designed to create optimal tooth spacing for esthetic appearance and an optimal bite for best chewing function.
If you are a good candidate for Invisalign and select this treatment, your teeth will be moved as you wear smooth, comfortable, and nearly invisible clear aligning trays on your upper arch and lower arch of teeth. With this type of treatment, you will remove your aligners each time you eat and clean your teeth. Thus, you will experience normal chewing function and easy teeth brushing and flossing. As your treatment progresses, you will wear a new set of aligners at frequent intervals, and you will enjoy seeing your progressively more beautiful smile.
