Invisalign in Seattle, WA
Have you been thinking about getting braces? If so, you may not be quite ready to commit to traditional braces, especially if you have to wear them for more than a year. This can be particularly stressful for teenagers and adults who want a straighter smile but feel they are too old to go through the process of braces. We understand this feeling all too well, which is why we now offer Invisalign here in Seattle, WA. If you want to straighten your teeth without anyone noticing, Invisalign might be the best option for you.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a set of custom-made clear, plastic aligners that fit your teeth to help realign crooked, gapping, or overcrowded smiles. Each aligner slowly shifts teeth into their proper position. Throughout the course of your treatment, you will be able to see improvements in your smile.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
The major benefit is the near invisibility of Invisalign aligners. Those in the working world and teens heading to college can still feel confident throughout the treatment process without worrying that people are staring at their braces.
Another bonus of choosing Invisalign over traditional braces is that the aligners are removable. While we don’t recommend removing your Invisalign often (you should still wear your aligners for about 20-22 hours a day), you can remove them before eating and before brushing and flossing your teeth. This means that you have no dietary restrictions while wearing Invisalign, unlike with other orthodontic treatments. Straighten your teeth and still enjoy your favorite meals!
Am I a good candidate for Invisalign?
If you are looking to fix malocclusions, overcrowding, minor crookedness, or gaps between teeth, then Invisalign could help. Most older teens and adults are great candidates for this nearly invisible orthodontic alternative; however, to guarantee that this orthodontic treatment will work best for your needs, we will need to conduct a consultation and dental exam first.
