Invisalign® Orthodontics Reviews
"Best dentist I have ever been to. Dr. Todd does amazing work, cares about his patients, and has a great sense of humor. He did my Invisalign treatment, and I am extremely pleased with the results. I had extensive work done yesterday, and Dr. Todd called me that evening to see how I was doing. No doctor has ever called me on the phone to check up on my progress."- J.H. / Facebook / Mar 31, 2018
"Anyone who is hesitant about these five stars review, HAVE NO FEAR. I would 10/10 recommend this clinic to ANYONE who asks (or doesn't). I was in town for my wedding and I visited my dentist in the area to get my final Invisalign check/retainers. I also wanted to straighten out my front tooth because it had chipped in the Invisalign process since I used to bite my nails. It made me super self conscious especially since I was going to be taking a ton of photos for my wedding this weekend and it had been bothering me since I got my attachments taken off. I had asked my dental clinic if they could even it out, but the dentist was not in so they weren't able to do anything for me... I was definitely 110% freaking out and so so sad. My dental office referred me to Beachwood Dental and Dr. Todd answered the phone. He so willingly accepted me last minute and really tried to work around my hectic schedule. I was late since I was running last minute errands and didn't expect them to take me so quickly (I called Thursday early afternoon, they told me to come in later that afternoon!). They were still able to fit me in with such warm attitudes and smiles. Dr. Todd, Stacy, and everyone in the office were so lovely, really (& I definitely don't say that lightly). They were able to fix me up (I couldn't even tell the difference!!!) and sent me on my way. I am forever thankful to this awesome team and appreciate you all (even if Dr. Todd is a USC fan...GO BRUINS). Thank you, Beachwood Dental!!!!"- H.S. / Yelp / Sep 20, 2018

Everyone in the office is experienced, friendly, and helpful. They take pride in their work. Stacy is smart and knowledgeable about dental procedures and insurance, and she has worked in that office for over 20 years. I've been a patient there since the early 1990s. I have never had any issues with my insurance claims because she knows about insurance plans and how to work with the insurance companies."- J.H. / Facebook / Mar 31, 2018

What to Expect
To be fitted for Invisalign, our dental staff will take photos, digital X-rays, and 3-D impressions of your teeth with our iTero digital scanner. Using this info, a series of clear, plastic, customized aligners will be created to fit your mouth perfectly. Wearing these aligners full time except while eating and brushing/flossing, you will switch to new aligners at home every 1-2 weeks, typically coming to Beachwood Dental every 6-8 weeks for a quick checkup. The aligners will predictably and efficiently move your teeth from where they start to the final position that the dentist approves of using Invisalign's patented technology. Conveniently, aligners are comfortable and easily removable, which is ideal for eating, brushing, and flossing. You can expect to be comfortable during your orthodontic treatment, while knowing the trays are predictably and efficiently moving your teeth to a healthier and more functional position, improving cosmetics along the way for that smile of a lifetime.
Treatment Timeline & Aftercare
Invisalign treatment time depends on the starting position of the teeth and what needs to be changed based on the patient's goals and doctor's vision. Almost all of our Invisalign patients are completed in less than 2 years, more than half of them in less than 12 months.
Do you want to speed up your case? The V-Pro might be good for you. We offer the "V-Pro", a vibrational mouthpiece which can cut treatment time in half while increasing predictability and comfort at the same time. You simply by bite on this device for 5 mins/night. We've been using this device with many of our cases over the last few years with great success. Ask our knowledgeable dentists for more info.
After your teeth have been moved into their ideal position, retainers will be made for you to wear, and our dentist will instruct you on how long to wear them. This time may range from 3-12 months of full time wear, follwed by night-time wear.
