What's Up Doc?

Braces aren't just for tweens.  While some adults may be hesitant to get a mouth full of metal, options like clear braces and Invisalign are ways to more subtly realign teeth. There are many people using aligners like Invisalign in their 50s and 60s and even 70s. Rosenberg Orthodontics is a top 1% Invisalign practice which means we do more Invisalign than 99% of all dental practices in North America.  While you’re straightening your teeth with Invisalign clear aligners, you can keep brushing and flossing with ease like you always do. When your treatment is complete the doctor recommends patients use a retainer to prevent teeth from gradually shifting back towards their initial position. Retainers are custom-made from an impression or scan of your teeth for a precise and comfortable fit. It’s that easy! 

 

In our over 25 years of creating beautiful smiles, we have seen the number of adult patients in our practice go up significantly. There are several reasons why we are seeing this happen. Firstly, the advances in technology and available treatment choices have made Invisalign and other aligner therapy treatments an option for many adult conditions, when just a few years ago they were not. More insurance companies are including adult orthodontic coverage in their policies as well, which has helped tremendously. Additionally, flexible spending plans and health savings plans have also helped to make orthodontics an affordable option. We’re committed to working with the unique needs of our adult patients, and providing smiles that will last a lifetime.

 

Don't lose your Flexible Spending money!

Many flex spending accounts allow employees time after year's end to use remaining pre-tax money in their accounts or even to carry over part of their balance into the following year.  Don't miss out on using your flex spending dollars!

Invisalign as well as other orthodontic treatments are included in the health related items for which funds can be used and both are great ways to take advantage of your flex spending benefit.  Now would be a great time to see if Invisalign is right for you.

 

 

Express Your Smile® was the brainchild of orthodontist Dr. Barry Rosenberg. Dr. Rosenberg has completed thousands of cases of aligner therapy and has lectured across the United States to dental professionals on this subject.

Dr. Rosenberg was looking for a solution to lower the cost and time commitment required for minor tooth movement. 

He had observed many cases every day in his private practice and wanted to help more people with this common problem. He decided that the answer was to take the treatment out of the office and into the patient's home. By doing so, he is able to lower the cost and make the treatment more convenient. 

The Express Your Smile® system is inexpensive compared to traditional braces or other aligner products.

After an initial examination and digital scan of your teeth, Express Your Smile® aligners are conveniently mailed to you. Most cases can be completed in 6-9 months for a more perfect smile. While Express Your Smile® is not for all dental misalignments, many people will benefit from this type of treatment.
