Fresno InvisalignIf you're suffering from a jaw or bite mis-alignment in the Fresno area, it's important that you address that immediately. Re-aligning your jaw is crucial. Among your many orthodontic options is Invisalign®, an exciting choice if you want an orthodontic treatment that is more comfortable and inconspicuous.

Traditionally, orthodontic adjustment was accomplished through the application of metal braces. Braces are generally effective, but they have a number of drawbacks, especially for adult professionals.

Invisalign® addresses these drawbacks, which makes it – for many patients – a vastly superior option compared with traditional metal braces. The advantages Invisalign® offers include:

  • Clear plastic aligners that are completely invisible
  • No need for uncomfortable and unpleasant tightening appointments
  • A much more comfortable fit
  • Easily removable at meal times, ensuring you don't get food caught under wires

Many of our patients love Invisalign® because they don't have to be embarrassed by the appearance of traditional metal braces during a business meeting or on a date with a romantic partner. Put simply, Invisalign® is a wonderful option for a lot of people.

Is it the right option for you? The only way to know for sure is to arrange an appointment at our office for a consultation and examination. We'll help you find the right orthodontic treatment for you.

If you live in or around Fresno, California and you think Invisalign® might represent the right choice for you, please call Dr. Gregory G. Miyake, DDS today at 559-224-0103.
