In the United States alone, more than 5 million children, teens, and adults undergo orthodontic treatment each year to achieve a straighter, more confident smile. But even though traditional metal braces are common in today’s image-conscious society, many patients still prefer a more comfortable, attractive orthodontic experience. With Invisalign invisible braces, Dr. Michael Stern is able to give his Willoughby Hills, OH patients a straighter smile while allowing them to still feel confident about their appearance.
Invisalign is one of the latest advances in orthodontic technology that allows patients to have greater lifestyle flexibility during their orthodontic treatment. The Invisalign aligners are made of soft, clear plastic that when worn over the teeth, are virtually invisible. Because the aligners are completely removable, patients don’t have any dietary restrictions and don’t have to hassle with food traps that traditional metal braces create.
“Patients love Invisalign because it still provides the same results as traditional metal braces, but they don’t feel like their image is hampered while working to achieve those final results,” said Dr. Stern. “We find that Invisalign patients are happier patients – they enjoy their treatment period much more and also end up having healthier teeth because it makes for easier hygiene routines than when compared with traditional braces.”
Dr. Stern evaluates each patient carefully to determine if they qualify for Invisalign treatment. The procedure has proven to be effective in treating mild to moderate orthodontic issues such as crowding, gapping, misalignment, underbites, overbites, and crossbites. Dr. Stern then uses advanced CAD CAM technology to create a series of 12-48 different sets of aligners that the patient changes out approximately every two weeks, which gradually shift teeth into alignment.
With Invisalign clear braces, patients have the flexibility to remove the aligners completely for special occasions like presentations, meetings, interviews, photos, and reunions, as long as they are worn for the majority of the day. Most patients also report minimal pain or soreness with Invisalign treatment when compared to traditional metal braces, which makes for a more pleasant treatment experience.
In addition to providing Invisalign invisible aligners for patients who desire straighter teeth without braces, Dr. Stern offers a variety of other dental services to help patients look and feel their best. He offers Lumineers, veneers, teeth whitening, and dental implants for patients who desire cosmetic treatment. For patients who struggle with other dental issues, Dr. Stern provides non-surgical gum treatment, No Drilling Fillings, treatment for headaches and migraines, and more.
Dr. Stern is considered to be one of the most experienced dental practitioners in the greater Cleveland area. He is the official dentist of the Cleveland Browns and regularly works with anchors from Fox-8 news. Dr. Stern has been involved in numerous continuing dental education courses, and has received multiple awards, accreditations, and honors for his expertise in dentistry. Some of these include being a Diplomate of the American Academy of Pain Management, acquiring a Fellowship Degree from the Academy of General Dentistry, and receiving a Fellowship Degree from the International College of Cranio-Mandiublar Orthopedics.
