Invisible Braces - Dr. Michael Dagostino, D.D.S
Newsletter for November 2007
It's not easy being a sports fan in Cleveland. The disappointing loss
to Boston in the playoffs forces us to recite the Cleveland mantra,
"maybe next year!" At least the Browns are playing entertaining
Technology has had an enormous impact on all our lives. The U.S. is
full of forward thinking geniuses that recognize a need and fill it. A
young college student disappointed with his crowded teeth designed a
process that straightens teeth using nearly invisible trays. The technique
is called Invisalign, and although it has only been available for 4 years,
to date over 500,000 patients have been successfully treated.
Patients are first screened to determine if Invisalign is a viable
treatment option. If the patient is found to be a good candidate,
impressions and xrays are taken. At the initial seating appointment the
patient is provided with a series of clear plastic aligners. Each is worn
approximately 2 weeks, and then the subsequent aligner is worn. This is
repeated until the treatment is complete. The patient is seen every 2
months during the active orthodontic treatment phase. Sometimes
alterations are made mid-treatment which may require more frequent visits.
The aligners are made of a medical grade plastic, which is computer
generated and custom fabricated.
In order to generate some interest in this treatment regimen, our
office is holding an "Invisalign Screening Day" at my office on
Tuesday December 11th from 9-5pm. During this day we will evaluate your
potential for Invisalign therapy. Any patient who participates in this
screening will receive $1200.00 off the normal fee of $4800-$6200.00.
Please call our office for the complimentary evaluation.
*P.S. The new electric toothbrush, Oral B Triumph, is now available at our
office at a significant discount, just $99.00 which is a savings of over
$50.00. This amazing brush has converted me from a manual to electric
toothbrush and its smart technology helps you to clean all surfaces of all
