Washington, DC (Vocus) October 6, 2010
Michelle Janbakhsh DDS of National Integrated Health Associates (NIHA) recently earned the Invisalign Preferred Provider designation. This provider status is reached after a specific level of Invisalign cases and training has been achieved. Invisalign is the clear, removable method of straightening teeth without wires and brackets.
The Invisalign Preferred Provider status is a national recognition. Doctors must achieve a specific level of case experience and training with Invisalign products to receive the designation. With this designation, Dr. Janbakhsh will be listed on the Invisalign website as a Preferred Provider.
Invisalign is an advanced orthodontic technology that offers unique benefits to the patient. The series of almost invisible, removable aligners move teeth into place incrementally according to the treatment plan. Using advanced 3D computer imaging technology, Invisalign depicts the complete treatment plan from the initial position of the teeth to the final desired position incrementally using a number of aesthetic and removable aligners. The clear braces are barely noticeable and easily removed for eating and brushing teeth, and will work for crowded teeth, spaced teeth, under bite, overbite and many orthodontic conditions.
Dr. Michelle Janbakhsh, known as Dr. Jan to her patients, recommends Invisalign for many adult patients because they are more comfortable and less noticeable than traditional metal braces. Also, the aligners are made of a thermoplastic material that does not contain Bisphenol-A or phthalate plasticizers. Tests have shown that they are bio-compatible and pass all requirements for human use.
Dr. Jan’s philosophy is that dental health relates to the overall health of the body. She educates patients on the importance of maintaining oral health and often writes dental articles for NIHA’S Integrative Health blog. She believes that a healthy beautiful smile can be a prelude to total wellness.
