Like glaciers and tectonic plates, teeth are slowly yet surely on the move as they attempt to turn their host’s mouth into frozen tundra and then rip it apart like a bite-size Pangaea.

The Invisalign treatment includes the following:
- Initial examination
Lincolnway Dental Center’s Dr. Young Kim invokes nearly 20 years of dental experience to straighten out asymmetrical smiles. Invisalign straightens crooked chompers 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 the patient’s mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 12 or as many as 48 separate aligners will need to be worn during a period of 6–15 months before the straightening effect finally self-actuates in a sudden burst of pink smoke and slobber. Aligners are only removed when eating, brushing, flossing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
Aromatherapy scents fill the air of the warm and inviting patient lounge as the tranquil trickle of a waterfall sets moods at ease and encourages teeth to fall in line like synchronized swimmers. Dr. Kim’s staff makes the experience all the more convenient with weekend appointments.
