My Invisalign journey with Park Avenue Orthodontics

I recently ended my  Invisalign journey with Park Avenue Orthodontics and I still can’t believe how wonderful my smile looks. As a 2nd time braces patient ( the first being a child ) , this was a whole different experience. This time, there would be no metal, no painful adjustments, and no hiding behind my smile. Invisalign was a game changer and perfect for this stage of my life!

From the minute I stepped in the lovely office in August of 2019, I knew this would be an amazing journey. The staff at Park Avenue Orthodontics is just the best and the care I received was like none other. My initial scans showed  minor crowding of my lower teeth and alignment issues on top. I was set up with my first set of trays and started to wear them day and night. No longer 13 years old, I was willing to do whatever it took to quickly straighten my smile. Below is a photo of my final scans reflecting a perfect bite!

After a few rookie mistakes of accidentally throwing out my trays and digging in the trash, I quickly learned to remember them. We all know it happens, but wearing Invisalign definitely comes with responsibility. The staff was super understanding when this happened and got me back on the right track!

Enter 2020 and COVID. Lucky for me, I had just visited the office prior and had supply for many months. However, the office did not go dark and re-opened as quickly and safely as possible. Protocols were put into place, virtual appointments set up, and staggered in- person visits. I was honestly so impressed with the professional manner that Park Ave Orthodontics handled the global pandemic. Safety measures are still in place and I would like to thank them again for making sure the staff and patients stay safe!

Dr. Janet Stoess-Allen is a 2021 Diamond+ Invisalign Provider and the primary reason my smile looks as great as it does! I was lucky enough to be seen by Dr. Janet at most of my appointments.  She honestly helped me more than I can tell you by noticing how off centered my bite was. With Invisalign, it doesn’t take long for a space to close or tooth to shift into place, but jaw misalignment takes a little longer.  I made a commitment to complete the journey  and I’m so glad I did! I can happily say I have no more popping jaw issues and my bite has never felt better! Because of Dr. Janet’s care and concern for her patients, my bite is 100%  where it should be (confirmed by final scans) and I can’t thank her enough!

It’s been a couple of months since I had my buttons removed on my teeth and  no longer wear trays. I still catch myself all the time thinking I should be wearing my Invisalign and forget I’m actually done! I do, however, wear a retainer each and every night to make sure my smiles stays exactly as it should.

If you are wondering what your smile could look like or have ever been curious about the process, I would highly recommend Park Avenue Orthodontics. Their team will make sure you get the care  and the best smile possible!

Smiling again with Park Avenue Orthodontics

From an early age in life I had a hard time loving my smile. My front two teeth came in with a giant space in the middle, which gave me anxiety and an unwillingness to show my teeth. Luckily, my parents were able to get braces for me which changed my situation, but now I’m finding myself once again needing orthodontic treatment as an adult. I know I’m not alone and many people my age are looking for solutions for a straighter smile. Continue reading Smiling again with Park Avenue Orthodontics
