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.
Dr. Jim Thacker’s commitment to creating healthy, beautiful smiles that last a lifetime began with a Bachelor of Science Degree from Ohio State University in 1978, followed by his Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree from Case Western Reserve University in 1982. Upon completion of a two-year graduate residency, he was awarded his degree in Orthodontics from Boston University in 1984. Dr. Jim is a Board Certified Orthodontist, a designation that is held by only 30% of orthodontists. He's also a member of the following professional organizations:
Traditional braces are one of the most efficient orthodontic tools we have. Ceramic or metal brackets are attached to your teeth, then connected by wires and tiny elastics or rubber bands. Through regular adjustments with our doctors, these components work together to apply gentle pressure, which will gradually move your teeth into the desired positions.
Braces in Cincinnati are an excellent choice for correcting a number of tooth issues, both simple and complex. Traditional braces sometimes work faster at closing gaps and aligning teeth than other options might, and this can reduce overall treatment time. In addition, braces don’t require some of the more complicated technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can. This makes braces in Cincinnati are a cost-effective orthodontic option for patients on a budget.
The Cincinnati Invisalign system uses clear, removable aligners to gradually move the teeth into alignment instead of brackets and bands. This option is the top alternative to traditional braces because it’s incredibly popular with both patients and orthodontists.
Invisalign aligners in Cincinnati are made of a comfortable plastic material and designed to fit snugly over the patient’s teeth. The trays are virtually invisible and are usually switched out every 1-2 weeks for the next in the series so your teeth keep moving in the right direction! Aligners must be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment in order for them to do their job. If you don’t wear your aligners as directed you might negatively impact your results, and make your orthodontic treatment process longer.
Invisalign is most successful when used to correct many of the most common orthodontic issues. For certain complex cases, Invisalign may not be a very good option. A free consultation with Thacker Orthodontics will be able to help determine your eligibility for Invisalign.
