We are a Certified Top 1% Invisalign Provider

Rad Orthodontics is proud to be an Invisalign® Top 1% Provider year after year. Because of our excellent results, we have been recognized by Invisalign and earned this distinction, which is awarded only to the top 1% of Invisalign providers nationwide. Experience counts, and Rad Orthodontics is known for achieving excellent results in highly complex Invisalign cases.

Orthodontists like Dr. Mehdy, Dr. Dave, Dr. Petrarca, and Dr. Mostowfi have specialized training in orthodontics: They have completed a three-year residency program to learn the medical and physical science of jaw alignment and function as well as the art of straight teeth and beautiful smiles. Generally, family dentists who provide Invisalign have several hours of weekend training in Invisalign and orthodontics.

When you compare that to the years of specialized orthodontic training that certified orthodontists have, it’s clear why many patients choose a highly trained orthodontist. Experience counts: choose an orthodontic specialist for your Invisalign treatment.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign treatment uses a series of virtually invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that allow you to smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign clear aligners are made with 3D computer imaging technology and have been proven effective. 

Why use Invisalign?

Not only are the aligners virtually invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also more comfortable than traditional braces, with no metal or wires, which also usually means you spend less time in our office getting adjustments.

Invisalign technology allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start, so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.

How does Invisalign work?

You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks.  During this time, you should  remove them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to their final positions.

You’ll visit Rad Orthodontics about once every six weeks to ensure your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages nine to 15 months and the number of aligners is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.  It is very important that you stay on schedule with your aligners during the treatment.      If you don't wear your aligners as directed, your treatment may take longer than scheduled.
