Many of our patients did not wear traditional braces when they were young, however, today they seek to have straighter teeth. Another pool of individuals may actually have worn braces at one time but still hope for straighter teeth. Through advanced technology at DentalWorks - Novi Twelve Oaks at Novi, MI, custom straightening trays, such as Invisalign, can correct the teeth. Invisalign uses a series of custom-made aligner trays to gently and slowly move the teeth straight. These almost invisible fit snugly on the teeth and are worn for at least 22 hours a day. They are typically only taken off for teeth brushing, eating, and drinking certain liquids. Invisalign from our dentists at DentalWorks - Novi Twelve Oaks can successfully enhance the teeth for a dazzling smile.

"Where do I begin? Well, my visit to another dentist, Howell Family Dentist, was unpleasant and overwhelming for me. As a result, I immediately called DentalWorks of Novi and to my delight I spoke with Laura. She patiently listened to my problem and politely reassured me that Dr. Rice would answer all of my questions. Today I met with Dr. Rice at DentalWorks-Novi and the meeting was educational and efficient. I now have a much better plan in place with help from EVERYONE. All in all, I will recommend this office to family and friends. Respectfully,Scott"- S.R. / Yelp / Aug 24, 2017

Straightening aligners are to be worn for approximately 10-14 days before the next set of aligners are then provided. This is based on the how fast the teeth move.
