Bio: Invisalign treatment uses a series of clear, removable aligners that slowly work to straighten your
teeth and align your bite. Invisalign aligners are more comfortable and provide a better fit than aligners made from off-the-shelf material.

Appointment times can be shorter with Invisalign treatment, and patients can go up to 12 weeks between appointments providing you more convenience for
your busy life. As a Diamond Plus provider of Invisalign aligners, Orthodontic Associates is among the
top practices in the United States and Canada who have treated the highest number of patients.
We pride ourselves in taking the difficult and challenging
Invisalign treatment cases and turning them into
success stories for adults and teens across the
Oklahoma City and Edmond, OK areas. Listen to Dr. Amy discuss the
techniques and benefits of Invisalign treatment.

Contact our office today at either our Oklahoma
City or Edmond offices to schedule your free consultation for yourself or your teen. We are ranked as a Diamond Plus
provider of Invisalign clear aligners, which means we are among the
top orthodontists in the United States and Canada who have treated
the highest number of patients. We have treated over 2,000 Invisalign patients total, which is the most in the state of
Oklahoma. Dr. Brian Amy serves as an international speaker and faculty member for Align Technology, Inc, the maker of the Invisalign clear
aligner system. Each year, Dr. Amy speaks to hundreds of orthodontists from
around the world to educate, mentor and advocate for the Invisalign treatment options available for adults
and teens. Dr. Brian Amy has participated in multiple research
studies that have resulted in national journal publications and advances
in Invisalign treatment.

Before you switch to a new dental service provider, be certain that the new dentist
is willing to finish the treatment that the
original dentist started. When you are searching for a new dental service provider, it is important that you find a dentist with a practice that can accommodate your lifestyle.

More exactly, make sure that his office hours, location and overall philosophy of care suits you.
At the same time, you will need to ensure that your feel comfortable
with your new dentist. In case you have a dental insurance plan, then you will need to check whether the new dental service provider is covered,
so you get the maximum benefits. You can check out this piece of
information by calling your insurance company and asking if he is on the list.
If you have a PPO insurance plan, then you will need to make modifications in your policy.

Cosmetic dentists devote themselves to creating attractive, enduring smiles with modern materials.

1. Transform dulled, stained teeth to bright, eye-catching smiles.
2. Replace outdated, mercury fillings that can actually cause
damage. 3. Reshape teeth that are crooked, gapped, uneven, or overlapped with natural-looking veneers.
Because every smile is unique, the cosmetic dentists works very closely
with each patient on a highly individual basis.
They listen carefully to the desires of each patient
to get a sense of the personality and lifestyle that the new
smile will be highlighting. Dentists then take careful facial measurements of
the patient to that enable them to mold new features into the
teeth that are proportional to the bone structure, age, and gender of the individual.

Modern technology is an integral element of cosmetic dentistry.
One of the tools they rely upon very heavily is the intra-oral camera.

It allows them to look at a patients teeth on a high-resolution monitor.
This enables a dentist to make a better diagnosis of what
needs to be repaired within the smile, and allows him or her to provide a more conservative treatment that addresses only the elements that truly require reconstruction and improvement.
To ensure patient satisfaction, a cosmetic dentist will then use digital imaging
technology to create an accurate visual forecast of what the new smile will look like.

Other new developments in cosmetic dental technology allow the
dentists to perform traditional services with newer, more improved methods and

Take, for instance, the age-old science of filling cavities.
Cavities were once filled using a silver-mercury
blend. Advances in dental medicine have now rendered these substances
obsolete. The porcelain inlays and composite resins now used in cosmetic dentistry last longer and
much safer for the human body. They are also much more natural looking and resilient,
and make for a better overall-aesthetic that
create the appearance of white, healthy teeth. One of the services
cosmetic dental specialists are happy to perform for any patient
is the replacement of older dental failings that
are beginning to wear and fail. Even if extensive cosmetic dentistry work is not required at this time,
it is a good idea for any patient who needs one or more
fillings replaced to invest in a healthier, more natural alternative to silver-mercury.
Of course, advanced technology and extensive training in all forms of reconstructive dental work also allows cosmetic dentists to provide much more complex and in-depth services
for their patients. The outcome of these treatments is a new
smile that is virtually indistinguishable from the original.

Many options are available, including bridges, implants and implant-retained dentures.
No human being should ever live with missing teeth. Replacing missing teeth can add self-confidence, and also allows other teeth to last longer by reducing the stress placed on them.

How can a teeth whitening method be chosen? It depends on the individual's needs and goals regarding teeth whitening.

A dentist can advise about various methods and the procedure which will suit him.

Also, he will be in a position to explain about the teeth whitening procedure, side effects, when any, cost, results one can expect out of the procedure and so on. This will enable the person choose the best teeth whitening procedure
out of the placed out options before him. How do the teeth
whitening procedures make the teeth white? The bleaching gel containing either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide is broken down into oxygen molecules.
These oxygen molecules get into the tiny pores
of the dentin and the enamel to break the stains which are blocking out the light.

When the teeth contain blue to grey or dark brown stains, it will be very severe to bleach, as
they would have been deeply embedded in to the teeth structure.
These severe stains can be treated with tetracycline and the results can be seen only after three weeks time,
and some may even take six months to see complete results out of the procedure.
Will the patient undergoing such teeth whitening procedure experience any irritation? The range
of discomfort experienced by patients may vary from
individual to individual and also depending on the procedure used.

Many adults do not even feel any uncomfortableness and
even if they feel any discomfort it is to the minimum point.

Whenever the uncomfortableness lasts for more than 2 days, it has to be consulted with the dentist.
The pain tolerance should be discussed with the dentist, so that he can devise a procedure
or combination of procedures to treat accordingly.
What results can be expected after the teeth bleaching procedure?
The results may vary from person to person. It is up to the person to take care not to further stain the teeth through avoiding tobacco, red wine,
or nutrients which stain to make the results stay for long.
The teeth should be flossed, brushed and kept clean to maintain the brightness.
Ordinarily the bleaching lasts for about 1
to 3 years. The dentist may order a paste which is a micro abrasion material
used to polish and clean the teeth. Who is the ideal candidate to
undergo teeth whitening procedure?

Innovative dental practices and firms tend to focus on opportunity risk while non-innovative
firms focus on investment risk. Innovative firms are always looking to try something new and cutting
edge. When you are first to market with something, you
don't always know what the reaction is going to be.
Innovative dental firms have to focus on opportunity risks, because if they make a bad decision, a lot of capital will be lost.
So what is the opportunity to enter a new market or create a new product within the dentistry industry?
Will they be welcomed with open arms, or ignored upon entry?

It is important to assess these risks to make certain that orthodontic and dental product innovation is worth your time and money.
A non-innovative dental practice tends to focus on investments, and the risks associated with them.
While they might not be coming out with cutting edge products,
these firms must still invest money to market and expand their business.
Will a company invest money to expand its reach if it doesn't
know what the results will yield? Though not related to dentistry (besides
it's ability to give you cavities), Tastykake is an example of where investment
risk is closely monitored.

The company has been around for a long time, but hasn't been overly innovative in decades.
They still bake mini snack cakes, and they haven't wondered too far from the market.
Tastykake did at one point, however, look into entering the Midwest region. The
company distributes to only a handful of states,
and expanding west would increase profits significantly; or would it?
After conducting a study, they found that Midwest consumers were turned off by their chocolate products.
When you compare a Tastykake chocolate cupcake to a
Little Debbie's or Hostess cake, you'll notice that Tasty's chocolate is a lot lighter in coloration. This was a sign of a diluted, watered down product to the
Midwesterners, who were used to a dark, rich looking chocolate icing.

Would it have been worth it for them to invest millions and enter the Midwest market only to have to
change their processes? Probably not, and this is why many non-innovative
companies study investment risks before making big decisions - especially in the medical and dental industry.

Dentistry is the branch of the healing arts and sciences devoted to maintaining
oral health. It is a dynamic health profession, offering opportunities to become a
successful, highly respected member of the community. Dentists enjoy excellent compensation and the high demand for dental care is likely to continue in the future.
The realization that oral health can have a serious impact on systemic health drives the expansion of new professional opportunities each year.
Approximately 80% of all dentists practice general dentistry.
General dentists treat all patients, adults and children, in many different treatment facilities and settings.
General dentists are graduates of dental school and hold a D.D.S.
D.M.D. degree. The D.M.D. D.D.S. are equivalent degrees that are awarded to dental students upon completion of
the same types of programs.

Some dental school graduates opt for one or two years of
additional education in a general practice residency or advanced
education in general dentistry program, rather than immediately going into practice.
Use the latest techniques and equipment to examine the
head, neck and oral cavity to determine the oral
health of the patient and identify and diagnose oral conditions that may manifest
into systemic disease. Use the latest radiographic and computer-generated imaging as well as other specialized diagnostic techniques to identify diseases of
the teeth, supporting bone, gingival tissues and other tissues in the oral cavity and
head and neck. Restore and replace teeth damaged by decay, lost from trauma or disease,
with newly developed dental materials, implants
and crown and bridge techniques. Perform corrective
surgery on gums and supporting bones to treat gum disease.

Extract teeth when necessary using the most up-to-date anesthetic techniques.
Eliminate pain arising from oral diseases, conditions and trauma, making use of prescriptive medicines to reduce pain and discomfort.
Correct badly positioned teeth to improve chewing, speech, digestion of food and
appearance. Oversee the administration and business of private
practice and frequently employ and supervise a large number of staff and allied dental personnel to help
treat their family of patients. Evaluate the overall health of their
patients including taking and evaluating comprehensive medical histories.
Provide instruction and advice on oral health care and preventive measures to maintain healthy oral tissues
and prevent oral disease. Provide instruction and advice on oral health care, including individualized diet analysis, brushing and flossing techniques,
the use of fluoridated products and other specialized preventive measures to maintain healthy oral
tissues and prevent oral disease.
