At Smile Studios, Dr. Tina Subherwal and her team are excited to offer cosmetic dentistry solutions for patients to consider when it comes to enhancing their smiles. While many patients may consider straightening their teeth, they may avoid bringing it up to their dentist for fear of hearing that they will need metal brackets and wire braces. Fortunately, Dr. Tina Subherwal of Redmond, Washington, offers an alternative called Invisalign. Invisalign is often referred to as “clear braces” and provides patients with an alternative solution that doesn’t require having unsightly metal covering the teeth for months at a time!
What is Invisalign treatment and how exactly does it work?
Dr. Tina Subherwal is a Redmond dentist who is certified to provide Invisalign treatment to patients. Invisalign uses plastic aligners that are nearly invisible when worn. These aligners are custom-made for each patient based on Dr. Tina Subherwal’s careful analysis and treatment plan. The patient wears each aligner for about 14 days before moving on to the next set in the series. As the patient progresses through the aligners, the teeth will gradually shift into place, resulting in a straighter smile!
What are the benefits of Invisalign versus traditional braces?
There are many benefits that come with choosing Invisalign over traditional metal braces. First and foremost, since the aligners are clear and virtually invisible, most people will not even know that you are wearing them! This is a big benefit for adults who are concerned about their appearance. In addition, they are much more comfortable to wear than traditional braces. They also require fewer office visits since there are no adjustments that need to be made. Many of our patients will ask about this treatment to determine if they are a good fit.
Who is a proper candidate for Invisalign aligners?
Most people who are considering orthodontic treatment are good candidates for Invisalign. The best way to determine if you are a candidate is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Tina Subherwal. During your consultation, she will carefully examine your mouth and teeth to develop a treatment plan that is right for you. If it is determined that Invisalign isn’t the best treatment option for you, she will discuss other options that may be available. Invisalign is often used for patients with mild to moderate misalignment of the teeth and may be done after patients have undergone preparatory services such as tooth extractions. Dr. Tina Subherwal advises patients regarding anything that may need to be done before qualifying a patient for Invisalign treatment.
Why might a patient choose Invisalign for teeth straightening?
Invisalign is a great option for children and adults looking to straighten their teeth without the hassle of traditional braces. The clear aligners are practically invisible, so you can smile with confidence, knowing that your smile looks great! Invisalign is also removable, allowing you to eat and drink what you want during treatment and making brushing and flossing a breeze! If you’re looking for a way to achieve the straight teeth you’ve always wanted, call (425) 584-3242 today to find out if Invisalign might be right for you!
