Knoxville, TN cosmetic dentist, Dr. Michael J. Solly is providing patients with a more optimal way to achieve a straight, beautiful smile with the latest orthodontic technology. With Invisalign, patients can still feel confident about their smile even while working to improve it.
Invisalign is becoming one of the most popular orthodontic treatments due to the fact that the soft, clear plastic aligners are nearly invisible when worn. Unlike the metal wires and brackets used with traditional braces, Invisalign also offers patients a more comfortable treatment period beyond just improved appearances.
“We're really happy about providing Invisalign for our orthodontic patients, because it definitely makes them happier patients,” said Dr. Solly. “Patients love that they can still smile with Invisalign without having to feel self-conscious like they would with traditional braces, and the lifestyle flexibility it offers is second to none.”
Invisalign has been proven to be effective in correcting a variety of orthodontic issues that traditional braces are also used for, including mild to moderate gapping, crowding, misalignment, or bit issues. While Invisalign isn't designed to correct severe orthodontic issues, many teens and adults still are candidates for the procedure.
Each Invisalign patient is provided with a series of 12-32 different clear aligners that are replaced approximately every two weeks. As patients progress through their series of aligners, the clear plastic trays apply gradual force to the teeth that slowly shifts them into alignment over a treatment period of 9-18 months. Because the force applied to the teeth with the aligners is different than that of metal wires and brackets, Invisalign patients experience much less pain and discomfort than traditional braces patients do.
As a cosmetic dentist, Dr. Solly specializes in a variety of other treatments beyond Invisalign. He is also a certified dental implants dentist for adult patients seeking a permanent solution to missing or failing teeth. He and his staff also offer other cosmetic services such as crowns, veneers, and teeth whitening for patients who are looking for an improved smile. Additionally, Dr. Solly is a highly trained conscious sedation dentist in order to provide patients with the most comfortable visit possible.
Dr. Solly has nearly 25 years of experience as a practicing dentist. He completed his dental education at Emory University, and also attended Florida International University where he received a BS degree in Biology. Dr. Solly is a member of numerous professional dental organizations, including the ADA, American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the American Orthodontic Society, Tennessee Dental Association, and several others.
