Dr. MaryEvan Thacker

Dr. MaryEvan Thacker is a native of Cincinnati and has always wanted to be a doctor. She worked as a chairside technician at Thacker Orthodontics during her high school and college years before joining the team full-time as an orthodontist in 2017. She earned her Bachelor of Arts from Vanderbilt University in 2009, majoring in Biological Sciences and minoring in Medicine, Health, and Society. She next earned her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree at the University of Louisville School of Dentistry, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude, finished third in her class, and was elected to membership in Omicron Kappa Upsilon, the National Honor Dental Society, for her exceptional academic performance. In 2014, Dr. MaryEvan completed a one year Craniofacial Biology program at the University of Kentucky in their Department of Orthodontics. She graduated with a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study in Orthodontics, and a Masters of Science in Dentistry from Boston University.

Cincinnati Traditional Braces: A Time-Honored Approach

At Thacker Orthodontics, we harness the proven power of traditional braces to straighten smiles and correct misalignments between teeth and jaws. Comprising either metal or ceramic brackets affixed to the teeth, connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics, these braces are a cornerstone of orthodontic care. Regular adjustment appointments with our skilled orthodontists ensure that the components work in harmony, applying gentle, consistent pressure to gradually guide teeth into their ideal positions.

Traditional braces have a storied history of effectively addressing a wide range of orthodontic issues, from the straightforward to the complex. Often, they can expedite the process of closing gaps and aligning teeth, potentially shortening the overall treatment duration. Moreover, traditional braces in Cincinnati are a cost-effective solution, requiring less complex technology and equipment than some newer orthodontic treatments.

Invisalign in Cincinnati: The Clear Alternative

The Invisalign system, a modern alternative to traditional braces, employs a series of clear, removable aligners to progressively align teeth. This innovative approach has gained immense popularity among both patients and orthodontists, offering a discreet yet effective solution. The aligners, crafted from a clear plastic material, are custom-fitted for comfort and changed approximately every one to two weeks, ensuring continuous and directed tooth movement.

For the Invisalign system to be effective, patient adherence is crucial. Aligners must be worn for 20-22 hours daily throughout the treatment. Non-compliance can hinder progress and extend the duration of the orthodontic process. While Invisalign is adept at correcting many common orthodontic issues, it may not be suitable for more complex cases. Our free consultation at Thacker Orthodontics will assess your eligibility for Invisalign treatment.
