Issaquah, WA Invisalign Treatment
Chances are good that while researching the different orthodontic treatment options out there that you came across Invisalign. Nowadays it’s difficult not to turn on the television or read a magazine without hearing or reading about Invisalign. If you’re interested in getting Invisalign our dentist Dr. Aaron Wellborn provides this popular orthodontic treatment to his older teen and adult patients. Here are some of the top reasons people say “yes” to Invisalign.
Invisalign Uses Transparent Aligners
Instead of having to sport a visible set of braces on the front of your teeth, this alternative orthodontic system provides completely clear trays that fit over your upper and lower teeth to shift them into place. Invisalign is a 100 percent clear way to get a straighter smile.
Invisalign Aligners are Comfortable
Each aligner is customized to your treatment plan and the smile goals you have. Aligners will fit snug at first, which allows them to put just enough pressure on teeth to gradually move them around. Our Invisalign dentist Dr. Wellborn will map out each tooth movement during your treatment-planning phase. This data will then be used to create aligners that move teeth exactly as our dental team planned out. This means getting custom aligners that provide the perfect fit and are smoothed at the edges to prevent irritation.
You Can Remove Your Aligners
A lot of our older patients are a bit wary about getting braces because they worry that their normal routine will have to change (and we are certainly creatures of habit, after all), but you’ll be pleased to hear that Invisalign fits into your routine; very little about your day-to-day habits will need to be altered to accommodate your braces. While you will want to wear your aligners about 22 hours per day, aligners can be removed before eating and caring for your smile, so you don’t have to change your diet or your oral care routine.
You May See Faster Results
For some of our adult patients, the goal is to get a straighter smile as quickly as possible so they don’t have to wear braces for longer than is needed. We completely get that you want to hide your orthodontic treatment from colleagues, coworkers, and clients. Depending on the type and severity of your misalignment issues, Invisalign could give you results in about one year (or less, if your specific dental issues are minor).
