What do you say to patients who have concerns about dental x-rays?
Choosing to straighten your teeth is a big decision that affects not only your appearance, but your lifestyle as well. As an adult, you may be looking for the best way to straighten your teeth without braces, to improve your smile for business and social reasons, or even for a special occasion like your wedding day. Invisalign® can provide a simple way to accomplish this without having to put your life on hold. Drs. Michael and Brian Gallagher is a certified Invisalign provider.
Drs. Michael and Brian Gallagher has been offering his patients Invisalign for many years, and he is one of Invisalign's Preferred Providers. Invisalign is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces, metal wires, or brackets.
The Invisalign treatment consists of a series of clear plastic aligners, created precisely to gently and gradually move your teeth into place. By using a series of clear removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth right before your eyes. Change them about every two weeks, and your teeth will move - little by little, week by week - until they have moved to the final position that Drs. Michael and Brian Gallagher has prescribed for you. Using advanced 3-D Technology, we can predetermine your treatment plan, and show you the results you would achieve, even before you start your treatment.
Some of the benefits of the Invisalign system include:
Is Invisalign for me?
Invisalign can be used to treat the vast majority of common problems for adults and teens. Whether your smile needs minor improvements or more extensive adjustments, Invisalign can certainly help. It's successful in treating overly crowded or widely spaced teeth. It can also relieve more complex issues, including overbites, underbites and even crossbites. In fact, Drs. Michael and Brian Gallagher can use Invisalign clear aligners in all or part of just about any treatment plan.

Do you find yourself waking at night gasping for breath? Are you exhausted all day long because you just can't get a good night's sleep?
'Apnea' is a Greek word meaning "without breath"; people who have apnea literally stop breathing in their sleep. A cessation of breath lasting for 10 seconds in adults, or 2 and 1/2 breath cycles in a child, is the clinical definition of sleep apnea.
X-rays are used for diagnostic purposes, and to protect the patient from oral health problems that could arise—or are currently present—which would not be discovered without the use of this important diagnostic tool.
