Straight teeth are not just cosmetically pleasing – they are also important for your overall oral health. Thankfully, traditional metal braces are no longer the only way to get a straighter smile. With years of orthodontic experience, Dr. Desatnik can use clear aligners to expertly adjust your teeth for a healthier, more youthful smile you can be confident in!


What Are Clear Aligners?

Here at Chagrin Highlands Dental Group, we can use clear aligners to gently and comfortably straighten your teeth. These plastic trays fit over your teeth and gently adjust their alignment over time. Aligners are comfortable and discreet – so you can go about your day without having to worry about visible metal frames and brackets.

Unlike traditional braces, clear aligners do not require any dietary restrictions. You can still enjoy your favorite popcorn and gum whenever you would like! All you have to do is remove your aligner before you eat or drink. After you are finished, brush as usual and place your aligner back over your teeth. Because aligners are removable, they are easy to clean and maintain.

What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign® clear aligners are an excellent alternative to traditional braces. By using a series of plastic aligner trays, we can comfortably adjust your teeth over several months. Each aligner is worn for approximately two weeks. During each two-week period, your aligners will make small adjustments to gradually move your teeth into place. Depending on your teeth, your treatment will take anywhere from two to 12 months.

Invisalign® aligners are practically invisible and can be removed at any time. This system is ideal for patients of nearly every age, from teens to adults. Dr. Desatnik recommends wearing your aligners during the day and night. Only remove your aligners when you are eating, drinking, or brushing.

What Other Options Do You Have?

For patients who are looking for a more cost-efficient treatment option, we are happy to offer other brands of aligners at a discounted price. With these brands, patients can save between 30-40% on average.
