With years of experience, numerous hours of training and multiple teeth straightening treatments performed, Dr. Brian Klym of Traverse City has been designated a 2010 Preferred Provider by Invisalign. Known as the clear alternative to braces, this comfortable and removable orthodontic system has helped Dr. Klym straighten the smiles of many of his patients.
Invisalign realizes trust plays a major role in the choosing of a doctor–no matter what type of treatment they perform, whether medical or dental related. The invisible orthodontics pioneer carefully determines which general dentists or orthodontist specialists will be their Preferred Providers; updating the roster each year.
Preferred Providers have achieved a specific level of clinical training and experience in Invisalign treatment. As of today, Dr. Klym is the only practitioner (dentist or orthodontist specialist) in the Traverse City area to be selected by Invisalign.
Invisalign asks dental patients to look for the Preferred Provider 2010 designation when they visit the dentists or orthodontists' websites or arrive at the office for their initial consultation.
This advanced orthodontic technology provides an option that is conducive to the lives and smile straightening needs of adults and teens. Convenience, comfort and confidence in his services and Invisalign's system are key elements making consistent treatment success possible for Dr. Klym's patients.
With Invisalign's 3D imaging technology, Dr. Klym produces a complete, digitized treatment plan. Each stage of the orthodontic therapy, from the initial position of the patient's teeth through the final desired position, is on computer. The Traverse City general dentist has successfully completed multiple smile alignments utilizing this dental technology.
According to Dr. Klym, "Advanced dentistry is about options. One-size-fits-all treatments make it difficult to achieve the goals patients have. Traditional bracket (metal) braces are still vital for treating patients when required by the orthodontic diagnosis. However, Invisalign is a superb alternative for many people with uneven smiles, crooked teeth or smile gaps."
He continues: "No matter what kind of cosmetic, restorative and/or preventive dentistry is needed or wanted, I make sure patients receive the proper care. A thorough examination is required to determine what is best in each case."
Patients and consumers should do their research on how this advanced teeth straightening solution transforms smiles.
Local and northwest Michigan patients with orthodontia and smile alignment questions should schedule a smile consultation at the Northwood Dental office to determine the most effective treatment.
