Straightening the teeth may seem like an easy way to improve the smile, but many teenagers and adults avoid speaking up about their desires with their dentist for fear of conventional braces. While traditional braces are a great way to address malocclusion, they are not always the most attractive. Dr. Tina Subherwal is a dental professional serving the community of Kirkland, Washington, who is proud to offer a solution for patients that allows them to enjoy a beautiful smile during the entire process—Invisalign!
What is Invisalign, and how does it work?
The team at Smile Studios describes the process of Invisalign as the use of clear aligner trays designed to gently reposition the teeth into better alignment within the dental arch. The clear aligners are difficult to discern from the patient’s smile, making it a less noticeable way of moving teeth. Digital impressions are taken of the patient’s current tooth alignment and then used to create a series of trays through special software at the Invisalign laboratories. The number of Invisalign trays used for a patient will vary depending on the severity of their misalignment. Patients wear each tray for two weeks as they progress through their treatment.
How long does Invisalign treatment take?
Most patients will be able to achieve their dream smiles within a year or less. Compliance is incredibly important to see the desired results. If patients do not wear their trays as directed, they may experience delays and additional costs to finish the changes.
Invisalign is an excellent solution for many patients dealing with the misalignment of the smile. Many patients choose this treatment because it is:
Easier to care for the teeth
Simple to use
Easy to clean
