But Can Invisalign
Fix My Problems?
Dr. Dowell is a trained Invisalign dentist who uses clear aligners to correct a variety of orthodontic problems that make your smile less than perfect. Common problems he can treat include:
- Gapped teeth
- Crowded, overlapping teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Teeth that jut outward
- Twisted or rotated teeth
- Overbite or underbite
- Open bite
Clear aligners from Dowell Dental Group offer distinct advantages that traditional braces cannot.
Traditional Orthodontics Vs. Invisalign
Traditional orthodontic treatment consists of a metal bracket and wire system, which is attached to the front surfaces of the teeth. While traditional braces are an effective treatment, they can make wearers self-conscious about their smiles.
Braces can also be uncomfortable and irritate the soft tissues of your cheeks and gums. In addition, favorite foods like popcorn and nuts are on the "do not eat" list in order to avoid bending wires and popping off brackets. Those wires and brackets also make brushing and flossing your teeth more difficult and time-consuming, which can lead to tooth decay and gum disease.
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, so they never detract from your smile or make you dodge every time a picture is taken.
The Invisalign aligner trays that move your teeth into the correct position are designed to fit comfortably over your teeth. They are made of smooth, BPA-free plastic. Because they are removable, you can eat all your favorite foods and oral hygiene is a breeze. You simply remove the aligner in order to brush and floss. Invisalign can also be a faster treatment option than traditional braces, in many cases.
"I Am Grateful."
I hate the dentist. But Dr. Dowell is the best in the business. I recently had a wisdom tooth extraction and it was a breeze. Dr. Dowell even called the night after to make sure I was doing ok. That really stood out to me. I won’t go to anyone else.View on Google
I phoned today to be seen as a new patient and because of the problem I was calling about, Jennifer scheduled me to come right in! Dr. Dowell listened to my concerns and addressed the problem in such a way that I know that between his approach and the wonderful way I was taken care of by his staff I have found the best fit for me and all of my dental needs! See you next Wednesday! Thanks to all and Happy Memoral Day Weekend 2018View on Google
Even Complex Cases Can Be Treated
Invisalign is no longer the unproven newcomer in dentistry. The orthodontic method was approved by the FDA more than 20 years ago. Since then, advancements in this novel technique have made it possible to treat even complex orthodontic cases and skip the trip to the orthodontist.
What if you didn't have to worry before each and every dentistry appointment?
Make Your Next Dentist Visit
a Comfortable Experience
At Dowell Dental Group
Many people dread going to the dentist and the orthodontist. However, at Dowell Dental Group, we provide a comfortable, spa-like environment so that you can relax during your treatment.
From our massage chairs to the aromatherapy used throughout our office, we put your experience first.
Invisalign Treatment Timeline
Your treatment time will vary depending on how complex your case is and how well you comply with wearing your aligners. You should wear your Invisalign trays for at least 22 hours per day for the best results. You may take the trays off to clean them, eat, and brush your teeth, but otherwise, the aligners should be in your mouth. Aligners can't correct your smile if they aren't worn the required amount of time.
With offices in Minerva, Carrollton, and Dover, treatment is convenient at Dowell Dental Group.
Our Finishing Touch ...
When you finish your Invisalign treatment with us, we offer complimentary teeth whitening using whitening trays that are custom-made for your new, straighter teeth.
It's our way of celebrating your beautiful new smile.

Maintaining Your Beautiful New Smile After Invisalign
Wear Your Retainer
Over time, your teeth may begin to shift back into their old positions, changing your stunning smile. Wearing a retainer can ensure that your amazing results stay the same.
Clean Your Retainer
After you remove your retainer, rinse it thoroughly. You should also clean it by brushing it inside and out using a toothbrush so that you can avoid build-up.
Practice Good Oral Hygiene
Flossing daily and brushing in the morning and evening will keep your smile healthy. From avoiding cavities to preventing gingivitis, good oral hygiene works wonders.
Attend Dental Check-ups
Even after you finish your Invisalign treatment, you should maintain regular visits with Dr. Dowell in Minerva or at his other offices. He will happily welcome you for cleanings twice a year as well as any other dental care you may need along the way.
