St. Louis, MO (PressExposure) May 12, 2011 -- In response to the growing demand for expert Invisalign practitioners in St. Louis MO, the offices of Drs. Moshiri are announcing their recent acceptance as a Premier Invisalign® provider, a label awarded to only the top tier of practitioners in North America.
According to a recent report, Align Technology, INC, who invented the Invisalign system, only allows the top 5% of Invisalign® orthodontists to carry the "Premier" title for their system. Their stringent application process not only considers a Doctor's knowledge and experience with their product, but also their commitment to orthodontics and general dentistry as a whole.
Dr. Moshiri, who is a well respected Premier Invisalign® provider in his own right, comments: "Premier Provider status indicates to our patients and to the community that not only are we among the most experienced Invisalign practices in the country, but we are also committed to staying current with the latest Invisalign® treatment techniques. That designation reflects the high standard of care that patients can expect from our practice."
The name Invisalign® has become synonymous with discreet orthodontics, allowing patients to straighten their teeth without the usual ordeal of bulky wires and braces. The system employs clear, removable trays that sit directly over the teeth. With each visit, the patient receives new sets of trays that subsequently make the teeth more aligned and esthetic.
Studies show that most patients receive roughly one quarter of a millimeter of movement with each visit, and it takes an average of 9 months to achieve their desired results. Patients also require fewer visits because the trays can offer more precise movement versus traditional braces.
For those who have used the system, like Nicole Simmons, the results speak for themselves: "I'm a public speaker, so when I decided to straighten my teeth I wanted to do as discreetly as possible. With Invisalign® I was able to get my teeth straightened without anyone noticing. The only thing they noticed is my straighter smile, and that was the result I was looking for."
Moshiri Orthodontics has been serving the greater St. Louis area for over 27 years, and has offered Invisalign® to their patients since 2005. For those patients who want straighter teeth but don't like the idea of bulky hardware, Invisalign® is a comfortable, invisible, and relatively painless alternative to standard braces.
