Straightening the teeth within a dental arch used to require metal bracket-and-wire braces. But thanks to continued advances in the field of general, cosmetic, and orthodontic dentistry, Redmond, Washington area patients have other solutions to consider that are not nearly as noticeable. Dr. Tina Subherwal and her team at Smile Studios work with patients to determine if they are potential candidates for an alternative option known as Invisalign. This is a treatment that achieves the same results as metal braces without covering the smile with metal. If you would like to straighten your smile but have avoided the conversation with your dentist for fear of being told traditional braces are your only option, it’s time to speak up and discuss Invisalign as another way to achieve the changes you truly desire and deserve!
What are Invisalign clear aligners?
Invisalign aligners are a wonderful alternative to traditional metal braces. They are fabricated from a strong, clear plastic that is molded specifically for your mouth, and they gradually move your natural teeth into the desired positions. These aligners are practically invisible in your mouth, hence the name “Invisalign.”
What are the advantages of the Invisalign system for straightening teeth?
There are many benefits of Invisalign treatment that make patients consider it for their smiles. Below are just some of the advantages that our team will discuss with those thinking about moving forward with Invisalign treatment.
One of the benefits of using these clear aligners is that they can be easily removed for eating and brushing your teeth, allowing for better oral hygiene.
Many people also prefer the aesthetic aspect of Invisalign over metal braces.
Invisalign is a convenient and discreet option for straightening your teeth.
Using Invisalign is just as affordable and often comparable in cost with traditional metal braces.
How does Invisalign work?
During your initial consultation, our team at Smile Studios will take impressions and images of your teeth to create a personalized treatment plan. The aligners will then be created specifically for your mouth, with each set being worn for about two weeks prior to moving on to the next set in the series. You will have check-up appointments with Dr. Tina Subherwal throughout the treatment to ensure everything is progressing as planned. If there are any complications during treatment, such as noncompliance with wearing the trays, new trays may need to be made and added to the series to get the smile back on track. This will result in additional costs, so it is vital that patients considering Invisalign follow the treatment plan and use the trays precisely as directed by their Invisalign provider.
It is essential that you have a consultation visit with your orthodontist to see if Invisalign is the right solution for your smile!
