It’s important to seek out board certified surgeons, as a doctor’s assessments and competence are absolutely vital to ensue optimal results.” 106 Stanhope Street, drhamawy.com

And the results you get can be superior to traditional braces…just make certain that you’re being treated by a specialist in the field.” In the process of debunking the myth regarding the process not working on older patients, she asserted: “The oldest Invisalign patient in our practice is almost 75, and her teeth are moving just as easily as any other patient.” 479 County Road 520, Suite A 204, Marlboro, tgortho.com
