If you’re dealing with gaps between your teeth or uneven teeth, you don’t have to keep hiding your smile. Modern orthodontics make it possible to have a straight, even, beautiful smile. Of course, you do have multiple options, including braces and a newer choice, Invisalign. At Lake Sammamish Family Dentistry, we’re excited to offer a new orthodontic system that eliminates the need for all that metal in your mouth. Here’s a closer look at Invisalign, the benefits it offers, and more helpful information that will help you decide if this is the right option for you.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment, but instead of all the traditional brackets and wires that come with braces, it uses removable trays that are clear and customized to fit your mouth. A series of trays are made and each tray is designed to help gently move teeth so you get even, aligned, straight teeth. Depending on your unique needs, this treatment may take from four months to 24 months to complete. You will need to wear these trays for most of the day to ensure you get the results you want.
Benefits of Invisalign
Choosing Invisalign from your local dental clinic in Issaquah, WA offers a variety of benefits. Obviously, they provide the benefits of straighter teeth and an aligned bite. However, you’ll enjoy many other benefits when you choose this option instead of traditional braces. Some of the benefits include:
- Easy Care – While you can’t remove braces and you have to try to brush and floss around the brackets and wires, Invisalign makes oral care easy. Simply remove the trays for regular flossing and brushing.
- Remove for Easy Eating – Eating with braces is a chore, but you can remove your clear trays with Invisalign when you eat so you don’t deal with eating and drinking restrictions.
- A Comfortable Option – Since there are new brackets and wires, you can wear these trays in comfort. They are flexible and custom made, so they fit into your mouth comfortably. You also won’t need to worry about any painful adjustments – you simply switch aligners to continue moving teeth.
- Wear with Confidence – The Invisalign trays are clear, so they are almost invisible. In most cases, no one will ever know that you’re wearing them, so you can wear them with confidence in any situation.
- A Faster Option – In most cases, Invisalign works much faster than braces do, so you’ll get the straight, beautiful smile you want faster.
