The Clear Alternative To Braces For Teens.

Smile with Invisalign 


 Invisalign Teen is designed with today’s youth in mind. These clear, removable orthodontic aligners can straighten your teeth without the need for metal wires and brackets. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign Teen aligners are comfortable, nearly invisible, and removable, which allows you to remove them as you eat your favorite foods and brush and floss your teeth. Invisalign Teen motivates teenagers to enjoy life without restrictions while promoting better overall dental care.
 Key features of Invisalign Teen Teenagers are constantly on the move and require special options when it comes to their braces. Invisalign Teen utilizes the same technology as Invisalign for adults; they consist of a series of clear plastic aligners that gradually move the teeth.
 Extra features designed especially for teens include:
 •Blue wear-indicators on the aligners that gradually fade from blue to clear to help you, and our team, gauge wear time
 •Aligners designed to compensate for the growth of molars and new teeth
 •Customization to fit your mouth correctly and comfortably
 •Removable and nearly transparent to ensure you can eat with freedom and smile with confidence
 •Six free individual replacement aligners in the event that your aligners become misplaced or lost Conditions improved by Invisalign Teen Between 70 and 80 percent of adolescents in the United States require braces, according to the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO). Invisalign Teen uses advanced technology to treat a broad range of orthodontic conditions. These include overbite, underbite, crossbite, widely-spaced teeth, and overly crowded teeth. Injuries and tooth and jaw problems may also require the use of braces to correct jaw and teeth alignment problems.
 How does Invisalign Teen work?
 Like any orthodontic treatment, Invisalign Teen requires a customized treatment plan created by
 Dr. George Bardawil. Generally, each set of aligners is worn for approximately two weeks and removed when you brush, floss, eat, and drink. Your teeth will gradually move with the series of aligners, which typically ranges from 18 to 30 aligners in total. You’ll visit our Hamra or Fanar  office every eight to ten weeks to check your progress and make any needed adjustments. Invisalign Teen introduces a whole new way to make your smile straight without the unappealing look and hassle of traditional metal braces. This revolutionary method of correcting smiles is being used by teens everywhere, including right here at Advanced Orthodontics, to straighten their teeth with confidence. bardawil -ORTHODONTIST,, Invisalign premier provider, speciality clinics center, st maamari,12th floor hamra,beirut lebanon Hamra clinic 961-1-747644 Fanar clinic 961-1-873718 mobile 961-3-542724

Adult Orthodontic Treatment

Adult Treatment

A growing number of adults are replacing teenagers as the stereotypical face of orthodontic treatment. Proper tooth alignment can be achieved at any age, provided your gums and supporting bone structure are healthy. In Lakeville adult orthodontic treatment is available through Dr. George Bardawil. He offers a variety of treatments that are designed for different age groups - including adults. Your journey to an improved smile can begin today.
Adult orthodontic treatment can improve your personal appearance and self-confidence. Improved teeth and gum health is another benefit of treatment. Crooked teeth and an improper bite are contributors to gum and bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal enamel wear, uneven wear of tooth surfaces, headaches and jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain.
The advanced techniques and appliances we use are more comfortable today, they require less frequent orthodontic visits, and they provide quicker treatment time. You may even have several treatment methods from which to choose, such as Damon braces, clear or tooth-colored braces or Invisalign ,and Robotic Fast Invisible Braces .
Dr. Bardawil can determine your best treatment based on your individual needs when you visit one of our offices. We also will share our treatment plan recommendations, the estimated amount of time you will be in treatment, and the approximate cost.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

What are the benefits of Invisalign®?

www.drgeorgebardawil.comA popular option for straightening teeth at Our Offices, Invisalign can be a great method for improving your smile, and can help patients with crowded teeth, crossbites, overbites, underbites, and more.
Invisalign, which is different from traditional braces, works by applying a series of clear, retainer-like aligners in order to eventually move your teeth into their ideal positions. Patients typically swap aligners approximately every couple of weeks.
At Advanced Orthodontics, we have lots of experience using this technology to give our patients the beautiful and healthy smile they’ve always wanted. During your initial visit at our Hamra, or Fanar office, the first thing we do is take an impression of your teeth as they are now and digitize it. Using special software, we look at the current positioning of your teeth and compare it to the way your teeth should look.
Not only are the aligners invisible, they are also removable, so you can eat and drink what you want, and brushing and flossing are easier. Invisalign’s aligners are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during your treatment. And, no metal and wires usually means you spend less time at our office getting adjustments. With Invisalign, you can view your own virtual treatment plan when you start, so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete!
Depending on the severity of the problem, Invisalign treatment may take anywhere from three to 18 months to complete. You should be aware that Invisalign is not as effective as traditional braces in treating bite problems, teeth that are lower or higher than others, or severely overcrowded teeth. Both teens and adults are now great candidates for Invisalign, so we invite you to contact our  office to set up an initial consultation and learn more on how Invisalign can give you the smile you’ve always wanted! bardawil -ORTHODONTIST,, Invisalign premier provider, speciality clinics center, st maamari,12th floor hamra,beirut lebanon Hamra clinic 961-1-747644 Fanar clinic 961-1-873718 mobile 961-3-542724

Early Orthodontic Treatment

Phase 1 Orthodontic Treatment

Phase One Orthodontic treatment can be thought of as correcting your child’s tooth foundation for a lifetime of beautiful smiles, and occurs when your child has a mixture of primary and permanent teeth. At this time the bones of the foundation (jaws) are pliable and ligaments can easily and comfortably be stretched to accommodate the developing teeth or correct facial contour.
The goal of Phase One treatment is to help the jaw develop in a way that will accommodate all of the permanent teeth and to improve the way the upper and lower jaws fit together. If Dr. George Bardawil has recommended early treatment, this may mean that your child has exhibited early signs of jaw problems, such as an upper or lower jaw that is growing too much, not enough, or is too narrow.
Early treatment may also be used to avoid permanent tooth extraction later and will deliver better long-term results and more treatment options in the future.
The second phase of treatment, usually including a full set of braces, begins when almost all permanent teeth have erupted and is necessary in order for your child to achieve an ideal bite and perfectly straight teeth. bardawil -ORTHODONTIST,, Invisalign premier provider, speciality clinics center, st maamari,12th floor hamra,beirut lebanon Hamra clinic 961-1-747644 Fanar clinic 961-1-873718 mobile 961-3-542724
