At John Day Smiles: McMillan, DDS, PC, we want every one of our patients to love their smiles! If you'd like a straighter smile without using traditional metal braces, Dr. McMillan provides Invisalign® clear braces for both adults and teenagers at our John Day, OR dentist office.
How Do Invisalign Clear Braces Work?
Have you had braces before, but then stopped wearing your retainer? This usually results in your teeth shifting back back to the way they looked before you had orthodontic treatment. Invisalign, known also as invisible braces, may be just what you need to discreetly get your straight teeth back!
Invisalign clear aligners can also be ideal if you have never worn braces, but have mild to moderate crowding of your teeth.
As an Invisalign dentist, Dr. McMillan can help you straighten your teeth without having to go to an orthodontist for traditional brackets and wires.
Aligning your teeth can have a positive impact on your appearance, but it also makes your teeth them easier to clean. The Invisalign system uses removable plastic trays that are easy to care for and comfortable to wear. These clear, almost invisible, removable braces allow you to easily keep your smile clean and avoid tooth decay and gum disease.
Are Invisalign Braces Right For Me?
When straightening your teeth, traditional braces may seem like your only option but you may not like the look or feel of metal on your teeth. Invisalign has similar teeth straightening ability to braces, but are almost invisible.
If Dr. McMillan determines you’re a good candidate for Invisalign, clear aligners will be created to fit over your teeth in the same way that a mouth guard or whitening tray would. Each set of of these clear invisible braces are worn for about 2 weeks, then are swapped out for the next set.
Over time, these invisible braces move your teeth to a straighter, more aligned position within your mouth. In many of our cases, the Invisalign process takes only a year or less to complete.

- Removable for easy maintenance and cleaning

Invisalign Teen Braces
If your teenager needs orthodontic treatment, invisible braces could be a better solution to straighten their teeth than using traditional metal braces.
Invisalign Teen is made specifically for teenagers and provides a nearly invisible method of straightening their teeth using clear, removable aligners that are custom-made for your teenager’s smile. While traditional braces use wires, brackets, and bands - Invisalign makes getting a straighter smile simple with clear aligners.
At John Day Smiles: McMillan, DDS, PC we often recommend Invisalign to our teenage patients because:
- Treatment is discreet

- Teens can easily remove the aligners to brush and floss their teeth, keeping their smile healthy during orthodontic treatment
- They can enjoy any food without worrying about damaging their invisible braces
- There's no risk of emergency dental visits because of breaking wires or damaged brackets
- Straightening their teeth with Invisalign often takes less time than with traditional orthodontic treatment
