Board-certified general dentists Doctors Shaya Hamid and H.R. Hamid straighten serrations with clear Invisalign aligners. Invisalign rearranges crooked grills with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer (from $3,500–$8,000). View some Invisalign FAQs here.

During the visit, Jenny makes a full assessment of a patient's medical history, from a sprained ankle in the fourth grade to the back injury resulting from a banana encounter on the set of a cartoon. Based upon each individual history, she gives a variety of diet, nutrition, and herbal recommendations.
