RIVERVIEW, FL, January 02, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Dr. Michael Hess and the team at Hess Orthodontics are pleased to announce they will soon be providing Invisalign and Damon Braces in the Lithia and Fish Hawk, FL areas. Their new, second location will be located off of FishHawk Boulevard, directly across from the FishHawk Sports Complex and Randall Middle School, and is expected to open mid-2013.
Hess Orthodontics' second location will provide all of the same outstanding orthodontic care, fantastic customer service, and innovative technology as they currently do in Riverview FL. They will continue to utilize the most advanced technology such as The Damon and Damon Clear bracket system, Invisalign and Invisalign Teen, SureSmile braces, and i-CAT 3D x-ray equipment.
"We are excited to have broken ground on our second location," said Dr. Hess. "The Fish Hawk Area is a large, family-oriented community and with its plans for continued growth, it made sense for us to open another location in this area so that we can continue to provide our current and future patients with quality care and convenience," said Dr. Hess.
Hess Orthodontics offers a wide range of orthodontic treatment options. Invisalign and Invisalign Teen are clear, nearly-invisible aligners that you wear all the time (except for eating and brushing). Eligible patients can opt for this method of treatment instead of metal braces. With Invisalign, you can achieve a beautiful smile without anyone knowing you're undergoing treatment! Also, because they are removable, it is much easier to keep the appliances (and your teeth) clean!
Damon Braces move teeth faster and more comfortably than traditional metal braces. Damon Braces use what is called a "self-ligating" archwire that does not require elastic o-rings. This is much more sanitary, as o-rings are a significant trap for oral bacteria.
SureSmile Braces use 3D imaging and robotic manufacturing to create a custom archwire for each individual case. After taking x-rays, Dr. Hess uses a 3D computer model to plan tooth movement. Then a robot creates a one-of-a-kind archwire for the patient. The technology allows for multiple adjustments to be built into one archwire, meaning fewer office visits for the patient and more efficient movement for the teeth. In some cases, SureSmile braces work up to 40% faster than traditional metal braces!
