Improving Smiles with Invisalign™ Clear Aligners

Straighter and whiter is what we do every day!

Doing braces is truly one of our passions. We read more orthodontic articles than we do about hunting, fishing, or football. Each case is treated as if it were our child or brother or sister. Dr. Brian Bailey and Dr. Benjamin Bailey have a combined 20+ years of diagnostic experience, which has taught us when to start a case, how to treat a case, and when to refer to specialists.

We are proud to offer traditional braces, Invisalign™ and Invisalign™ Teen clear aligners.

Invisalign™ ... (learn more)
Invisalign™ treatment will consist of a series of aligners that you switch out about every two weeks. Each aligner is individually manufactured with exact calculations to gradually shift your teeth into place. And since your Invisalign™ system is custom-made for your teeth and your teeth only, with a plan devised by you and your dentist or orthodontist, you know you'll end up with a smile that truly fits.
 
Invisalign™ Teen ... (learn more)
Invisalign™ Teen uses the same Invisalign™ technology as adult aligners, moving teeth gradually with each set of clear, comfortable plastic aligners. But because teens (and their mouths) are constantly on the move, we've added a few special features:
  • Blue wear-indicators face from blue to clear to help your teen gauge wear time
  • Designed to compensate for the growth of new teeth and molars
  • Six free individual replacement aligners are included in case any get lost or misplaced

Benefits of a general dentist who does braces and tooth alignment

  • Cases are observed and taken care of for years, not straightened and dismissed
  • Partial braces, aligners, or minor tooth movement can create great results with a faction of the time and money (most specialists only do full or interceptive orthodontics)
  • Whitening can be done during treatment to make teeth straight AND white
  • Bonding can be done during treatment to correct misshaped teeeth
  • Caseload is kept to about 50 active cases at a time, instead of hundreds
  • Children are seen at routine cleanings and precisely diagnosed when treatment should start
  • If extractions are needed, they can be done at the same office at the same time
  • Braces can easily be combined in treatment with crowns, bridges, laminates, implants, etc., to 'rehabilitate' a mouth

Technology continues to improve, but some things remain constant

  • Most cases can be treated nicely without removing permanent teeth
  • Most cases are better waiting than starting too early
  • In some cases, early treatment is very important
  • All cases benefit from long-term (more than one year) retainers - 80% of lower front teeth relapse to crowded teeth with typical retainers
