Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. The Kentucky Center for Orthodontics features orthodontists specially trained and certified in the Invisalign process, which eschews cumbersome braces for clear removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of the patient's mouth terrain, will pave 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. At the culmination of treatment, patients take home retainers to ensure chompers remain straight after shedding aligners.
The Kentucky Center for Orthodontics
The Kentucky Center for Orthodontics’ trio of doctors all got into orthodontics when they realized just how much a great smile can improve someone’s life. Dr. Douglas Durbin, the inventor of the Flosspik polypropylene interproximal dental cleaner, Dr. Thomas Garner, and Dr. John Huang enhance the smiles of both children and adults with Invisalign treatments, braces with clear brackets, and invisible retainers glued to the back of teeth. They use digital imaging to construct treatment plans, they avoid headgear whenever possible, and they never just pull out a tooth when it won’t cooperate. Under their steady hands, The Kentucky Center for Orthodontics has straightened the teeth of more than 35,000 patients, including Miss Kentucky USA 2009 Maria Montgomery.
