In 1999, I flew to Raleigh, North Carolina from Charleston with a handful of other orthodontists to be introduced to the movement of teeth with clear aligners by a new company named Align Technology who makes ®Invisalign. As one of the first orthodontists to learn about the new aligners in South Carolina, I was extremely excited as this was never done before using 3D printing technology. 18 years later I have personally treated over 500 patients with clear aligners and feel that I have an excellent knowledge of what clear aligners will achieve. My patients are thrilled with the opportunity to have a beautiful smile without fixed braces. My staff will tell you that my clear aligner patients are the happiest patients in my practice! In 2017, we have eliminated messy and gooey impressions by scanning your teeth in 3D with the latest TRIOS 3D scanner and are excited to offer the next generation of our own clear aligners in 2018 using our own 3D printer with the latest technology. Stay tuned for our next generation affordable in-house Clear Aligners. *coming soon!
