Lexington, KY Invisalign Short-Term Orthodontics


The first visit is a consultation that we have with the parents and the child, or whoever the patient may be … Explaining, these are the processes that we have, this is what it does, this is how it looks, and we let them help make that decision. Do they want to wear braces, do they want to have Invisalign?

If they’re ready to start with Invisalign, it’s the process of just taking photographs, one x-ray and impressions. We start the process there. I do the prescription for the tooth movement. That’s important because it’s just not … Okay, we’re taking impressions and they’re going to make something. The doctors all are trained on how we want the teeth to move, and the aligners are designed that way. We get the final product that we’re asking for.

The neat thing that we have here, I think that sets us apart, too, is … Sometimes teeth don’t move like you think they’re going to move … We can finish patients with maybe 2 or 3 months of braces just to get everything where they need them to be or where we want them to end up.

Do you or your teen suffer from mildly crooked teeth? Invisalign short-term orthodontics might be the answer for you. If you have crooked teeth or a mild bite problem, but no other major orthodontic issues, Invisalign braces can help you achieve a straight, beautiful smile with less hassle and less discomfort than traditional braces.

The program that I went through for the Invisalign was amazing. I never smiled. I never opened my mouth. I always had my hand here. Now, I smile. This was a great place to be for a year and a half.

They did all the molds. When it was time to come back, I got my first set of Invisaligns. They were very patient with me; putting them in, and taking them out for the first time. At first, I came back every four weeks. Always kind. They do a little video to show you what the end result is going to look like. Every time, I would say, “I’ve got to see that video.” They were always very kind to show me. Then it went to every six weeks. Always pleasant, kind, [Whitney 00:00:41], [Panda 00:00:41]. Everyone was just so nice through the whole experience, and encouraging the whole time.

I’ve become a selfie queen. Just to take a picture and actually see myself smiling, because up until now there are no pictures of me smiling. I was so self-conscious of the gaps, and the spaces, and the teeth laying to the side. Now, everything is nice and straight. I’m thrilled, thrilled.

What is Invisalign? For many people, Invisalign provides the easiest and least invasive solution for teeth straightening. Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible and require little change to your lifestyle, little to no discomfort, and won’t stop you eating any of your favorite foods. Patients who use Invisalign are astounded at the results while having none of the normal complaints about braces: no discomfort due to sharp-edged brackets or wires and no unsightly metal to muck up your smile.

Knowledgeable, Competent Invisalign Provider

I enjoy the service. The staff is nice and friendly. Dr. G has been very accommodating, even one time I was going out of town, and he got me in just right away. I have Invisalign, which I love it. I’m halfway through it. I’m looking forward to the end result. I would be on business meetings with my husband. We would eat with people, and my teeth were a bit crooked. Food would get in my teeth, and it would be so embarrassing, and so I was just so thrilled at the time when we came here and we mentioned it, and it just went smooth. Our insurance was great with it too, so that was even a plus. There was no obstacles. Everything went smooth. I got my first plates in, and there’s pains with it, but nevertheless, I look forward to the end result. That’s very exciting for me. My kids cannot believe in how straight they are, and I’m just very excited about it, very thrilled, long time coming.

How does Invisalign work?

The great thing about Invisalign is that it’s a clear tray that you can take in and out. Ideally, patients wear them 22 hours a day. Usually patients are motivated to do Invisalign. The majority of these patients are adults who have either had the [inaudible 00:00:17] or they’ve never been able to afford conventional orthodontics as younger in life and now they’re at a place where they really do want to straighten their teeth but they don’t want to have the conventional brackets and wires. A lot of these people are in sales or out speaking to people a lot and they don’t want to have the hindrance of having brackets and wires and would never actually go that step to straighten their teeth if they had to go that route. Invisalign is great because it’s a clear tray that they wear and they come and see us about every six weeks. It’s a really great tool that we have here to help that group of patients who really do want to help their overall health and help their appearance, to straighten their teeth without having to use the conventional brackets and wires.

We take X-rays, pictures, and impressions of your teeth, which Invisalign uses to create digital 3D images. Using these images, we map out your treatment plan to gradually move your teeth into position through a series of smooth, plastic overlay trays called aligners.

There are no wires or metal brackets. You simply pop in a new set of aligners every two weeks until your teeth have moved into the final position. Every six weeks, you will need to come in for a checkup. Invisalign can work in as little as 12 months, but often takes about the same treatment time as conventional braces.

Will Invisalign work for me?

Invisalign is a great solution for many people. It can treat overcrowding, gaps, crossbite, overbites, and underbites. If you have any of these problems, Invisalign braces might be perfect for you.

However, Invisalign is not for everyone. Patients with severe bite problems or other larger orthodontic issues are not good candidates for Invisalign. We offer many other orthodontic solutions (such as Fastbraces®), and we can find one that will fit your needs. However, if you have only mild malocclusion (your teeth do not fit together properly), Invisalign may be the perfect solution and your ticket to a happier, more beautiful smile.
