Toledo Dentist Marks 15 Years of Invisalign®
January 19, 2016 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsJanuary 19, 2016 - Toledo, OH – For over 15 years, Toledo dentist Dr. Shabbir Hashim has helped countless individuals improve the look and function of their dentition with Invisalign®.
Unlike traditional orthodontia, Invisalign® uses clear aligning trays to slowly move the teeth into the correct position. Not only does this eliminate the need for unattractive metal brackets or wires, but the removable trays are virtually invisible, making them an ideal option for adult patients looking to straighten minor to moderate alignment issues.
Says Dr. Hashim, "Our mission is to provide patients with comfortable care that yields lasting results. In the last 15 years, Invisalign® has helped me provide patients with effective orthodontic care that doesn't impede their life."
By utilizing advanced technology such as CEREC®, Dr. Hashim is able to create the aligning trays in office, ensuring that the customized trays precisely fit the patient's dentition. During the treatment process, patients visit the Toledo dentist to ensure the treatment is going smoothly and to receive the next sets of aligning trays.
While the treatment does require greater patient diligence than other orthodontic options, many individuals have found Invisalign® to be highly successful as an independent process or as part of a larger treatment program. Dr. Hashim often recommends Invisalign® for individuals who are experiencing a relapse of prior orthodontic work or those looking to correct minor to moderate tooth misalignment.
In addition to Invisalign®, Toledo Dental Arts offers a range of preventive, cosmetic, and restorative services, each of which are personalized to meet each patient's unique needs. By integrating advanced technology into each treatment, patients receive treatment plans that enhance their dentition, improving the overall health, function, and aesthetics of their smile.
