Question: What is Clear, Comfortable, and Virtually Invisible?

Question: What is Clear, Comfortable, and Virtually Invisible?
Answer: Invisalign is!
More and more patients at OSL are achieving their orthodontic goals with Invisalign. Dr. Steckel is happy to provide this opportunity for her patients to realize their goals
with this ever-advancing technique.
Advantages for Invisalign:
1. Easier brushing and flossing, less dietary restrictions, no “wire pokes”.
2. Comfortable to wear, and not obvious to most people that you have the aligners on
What patients need to know: It will change your daily routine to some extent. You need to wear them 22 hrs per day to complete treatment on schedule.
Disadvantages of Invisalign:
1. Being consistent with your aligner schedule is very important, or the treatment can take longer or not work.
2. Some patients still need braces on some of their teeth to get the best results. This can be determined at your initial appointment with Dr. Steckel.
A patient is shown below who recently finished Invisalign treatment, and then was able to have restoration with his dentist to complete his perfect smile.
Both he and his dentist were happy with the results achieved:

“Brush up” on Your Knowledge for Children’s Dental Health Month

Children’s Dental Health Month is a great time to “brush up” on dental health knowledge. It is important to brush two times a day, using small circles, for two full minutes. Watch the video below to see how.

A trip to the orthodontist can also be an important part of dental health. Teeth that are aligned properly look and feel good. The ability to speak, chew, and bite, as wellCDHM as good dental health can all be dependent on properly aligned teeth.

If your child’s teeth are not properly aligned, it can lead to dental problems. A check-up, no later than age 7, will help Dr. Steckel provide treatment at the right time in your child’s developmental process.
