    Iowa City, IA orthodontist, Dr. John Mergen, recently introduced Inspire ICE clear braces that is helping patients have a more comfortable and confident orthodontic experience. Unlike traditional metal braces brackets that can be bulky and interfere with facial aesthetics, Inspire ICE brackets are crystal clear, making them virtually invisible except for the metal wire that runs horizontally across the teeth.   Patients with severe crowding or misalignment are not always candidates for other clear orthodontic treatments such as Invisalign. With Inspire ICE brackets, they can still enjoy the same improved aesthetics of clear braces while still getting the same great results of straight, beautiful teeth.   “Up to this point, many patients—especially adults—who wanted straight teeth would opt out of orthodontic treatment just because of the way traditional metal braces look,” said John Mergen, Inspire ICE and Invisalign orthodontist at Mergen Orthodontics in Iowa City, IA. “But with this new product, we’re able to please more patients and show that they can have a great smile even while they’re working to have their teeth look even better.”   Other leading brands of non-metal brackets often use porcelain or tooth-colored brackets to make them appear less visible than traditional metal brackets. However, because each individual’s tooth shade doesn’t always match the bracket, they are still often just as noticeable. With the Inspire ICE brackets made from patented sapphire material, their crystal-clear nature essentially blends in with teeth, regardless of their shade. Also, Inspire ICE brackets won’t stain or discolor during the course of treatment.   In addition to providing clear orthodontic treatment for his patients, Dr. Mergen is also a pediatric orthodontist in Iowa City, IA and specializes in early treatment beginning at age 7. Early treatment can reduce the occurrence of more serious issue during growth and development, and can also help reduce treatment time with braces in the future.   Dr. Mergen has been a practicing orthodontist for more than 15 years. He completed his DDS degree from the University Of Iowa College Of Dentistry, where he also earned his degree in orthodontics. He is highly involved with continuing education courses in the field of orthodontia and also enjoys providing orthodontic care for the less fortunate in his community. Dr. Mergen maintains membership in several professional organizations including the American Association of Orthodontists, the Iowa Society of Orthodontists, the ADA and Iowa Dental Association, among others.   To find more information about Inspire ICE braces or about any of the other services offered by Dr. John Mergen, please visit www.MergenOrthodontics.com and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JfXNVL6y8SY.
