How is Invisalign like Harry Potter’s magic?
By Dr. Amirparviz Davoody & Dr. Rena Mehr
At Greater Houston Orthodontics we believe in the power of magic (big Harry Potter fans), but sometimes science is so advanced that it becomes almost indistinguishable from wizardry. Invisalign is powered by the kind of tech that can be considered magical. Get ready to step into the fantastic world of Invisalign!
Cloak your teeth with invisibility
In the beginning of his story, the young wizard is gifted a magic cloak. It’s a powerful bit of magic that allows the wearer to become completely invisible while wearing it. The fabric of the cloth is woven from special enchanted material for witches and wizards to render themselves unseeable. Much like the magic cloak, Invisalign appliances are made with a material that makes them virtually invisible to the naked eye. The aligners are produced from a patented flexible plastic material that was invented exclusively for Invisalign by biomechanical engineers, who we consider a special class of wizards.
Wands that scan your teeth
A standard instrument of every magic-user is the wand. It allows the bearer to focus on magic often with a beam of powerful light that can produce wondrous things. Dr. Amir Davoody and Dr. Rena Mehr work with the Invisalign scanner much like a wizard does a wand. During the Invisalign digital scanning process, our orthodontists wield a handheld device that takes a high resolution, interactive image of your teeth in 3D, snapping 6,000 images per second!
Spells and magic maps for your future smile
In one adventure, the wizards are bestowed with a magic map that tells them how to achieve their goal and avoid any pitfalls. After scanning your mouth, Dr. Davoody or Dr. Mehr will use a magic spell (aka powerful computer software) to create a map for your treatment plan. Every step is plotted using multiple aligners that gently (and invisibly!) guide your teeth until they produce a perfect smile: Novos Risus! No worrying about any missteps along the way.
A potion for almost every ailment
The study of magic potions is the stock and trade of every budding wizard, seeking out ways to address any situations they may encounter and always tinkering with the formula to make it better. Invisalign has a very similar way of producing results. Over the decades of use, Invisalign technology has improved so that it can treat many cases including crowded teeth, overbites, underbites, crossbites, gap teeth, open bites and generally straighten teeth. Tinkering with the technology in the future will allow Invisalign to resolve even more problems.
The Invisalign aligners are produced from a powerful 3D scanner that seems to create the appliances out of thin air. There is no hocus pocus here though. A fleet of high-tech devices are employed to produce each and every custom-made aligner that is a perfect fit for your mouth. The technology that backs the Invisalign system isn’t magic, it just seems like it!
Meet our head wizards
If it’s smile magic you want, you have to see the right wizard. You wouldn’t go to Professor Flitwick to learn Transfiguration and you wouldn’t want Professor Binns teaching you Quidditch. Since Madam Pomfrey isn’t readily available, for the straight smile of your dreams, you want to see Dr. Davoody or Dr. Mehr. Each has extensive experience using Invisalign to straighten young wizards and witches teeth as well as strong experience with adult orthodontics.
Dr. Amir Davoody and Dr. Rena Mehr lead a friendly, dedicated team that works together to create a positive experience for patients and their families that’s fun, light hearted, warm and inviting. The doctors and team use the most advanced treatments available today, including Invisalign, Invisalign Teen and Incognito™ invisible braces.
With two convenient locations in Bellaire and Memorial, we are ready to help you start smiling. Please contact our West University or our Memorial office to schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Davoody and Dr. Mehr.
