Some of our patients would like to have orthodontic treatment, but they feel self-conscious about the idea of people seeing them wear metal braces. No problem! Did you know there’s a revolutionary, new orthodontic system for straightening your teeth? It’s called Invisalign® and unlike conventional braces, it is discreet and nearly invisible!
Invisalign is a modern system that employs clear, plastic aligners that are virtually invisible and are ideal for the fragile self-esteem of self-conscious teens or adults who feel they are too old to have metal braces.
Custom-made with precision to specifically fit your teeth, Invisalign’s aligners will gently shift your teeth into place. Invisalign uses smooth, comfortable plastic aligners that fit over your teeth, as opposed to traditional braces with their sharp metal brackets and poking wires.
The Invisalign system effectively treats mild cases of crooked and protruding teeth to gaps, crowding and spacing. Invisalign also addresses issues like overbite, underbite and crossbite.
One of the biggest challenges to wearing conventional metal braces is getting your teeth cleaned well enough. These challenges can lead to plaque build-up, gum disease and tooth decay.
But Invisalign aligners make daily oral hygiene easier because they are removable and easy-to-clean. Removing the aligners allows you to brush and floss normally for better oral health. And because the aligners are removable, you can eat whatever you want!
So, what’s preventing you from finally having the smile you’ve always wanted? Here at Smiles Dental, we encourage you to call 360.200.6995 and schedule an appointment to talk to one of our doctors to determine whether Invisalign is right for you.
