Record Number of Adults Seeking Orthodontic Care

Fresno Dentist Serving Madera, Clovis, Visalia, Tulare & Nearby Areas in California

Wed, 05/14/2014

A 2013 survey by the American Association of Orthodontists found a 14 percent increase in the number of adults seeking orthodontic care between 2010 and 2012, and the reason why is clear. Options such as Invisalign® now make correcting malocclusion more accessible to adults by offering an aesthetically pleasing and incredibly effective alternative to braces. Fresno dentist Dr. Gregory Miyake would be happy to meet with you to assess your smile and help you determine if Invisalign can help you reach your goals.

About Invisalign

Invisalign corrects malocclusion with aligner trays as opposed to wires and brackets. Made of soft, clear plastic, Invisalign aligner trays progressively push teeth into their correct position over a six to 18 month treatment period.

While undergoing Invisalign treatment, you will return to our Fresno office every few weeks for an assessment of progress. As you are ready, these visits will also allow us to provide you with your next set of aligners.

Because they can be removed, Invisalign aligners do not require dietary restrictions, nor do they interfere with oral hygiene. The soft plastic aligners do not cut or irritate soft oral tissue, and the clear appearance allows aligners to remain virtually undetectable. For these reasons and more, Invisalign offers an ideal orthodontic solution for adults.

If you live in or around Fresno, California and would like to learn if Invisalign is right for you, please contact Gregory G. Miyake, DDS today to schedule your initial consultation.
