Invisalign®: Serving Seattle, Tukwila, Renton, Burien, Bellevue, & Southcenter
One of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures is Invisalign, a system designed to straighten and realign your teeth. Dr. Timmerman is a certified Invisalign doctor Seattle, WA patients can trust to help them obtain that straight, white smile we all desire.
Invisalign consists of a series of clear trays that are custom fit to your mouth to move your teeth into place. It’s a great option for those who have an overbite, underbite, crossbite, improper spacing, or crowding. Correcting alignment issues is necessary for proper chewing, and having straight teeth is necessary for the beautiful smile so many people desire. With Invisalign, you can correct your alignment, and improve your appearance in a discreet manner.
Straighten Your Teeth Comfortably
Invisalign is a more comfortable way to straighten your teeth without the pain and discomfort of traditional braces. Your set of Invisalign trays are designed to move your teeth in small increments, meaning less pain. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign trays have no metal brackets or wires to irritate your mouth; instead, they are made of smooth plastic that fits comfortably in your mouth.
One of the main reasons many people prefer Invisalign to traditional braces is that Invisalign does not alter one’s appearance. Invisalign trays are virtually invisible –people more than likely won’t know you are wearing them unless you tell them. Your smile may be under construction, but no one will know unless you tell them. For working professionals or anyone who is concerned with appearances, Invisalign is a great option.
- Traditional braces limit the foods you can eat, are difficult to floss around, and can generally be annoying and obtrusive. Invisalign, on the other hand, is removable. You can take out your trays for meals and special events, so you do not have to change your diet, or avoid certain foods as you would with metal braces.
- Traditional braces often cause plaque buildup and decay because they do not allow for adequate brushing and flossing; since Invisalign is removable, you can thoroughly brush and floss as you would normally.
- There’s no need to let braces interfere with your daily life when you can use highly effective, removable Invisalign trays.
Convenient and Healthy
Wearing Invisalign trays is much more convenient than wearing metal braces. Invisalign appointments are needed less often than traditional braces; with Invisalign, you only need to go in to our office about every six weeks. No other care is required – all you have to do is wear your aligners (taking them out when you clean your teeth or eat). It’s simple!
Using Invisalign trays can also improve your health. Straight teeth allow for easier cleaning, preventing gum disease, bad breath, infections, and other problems caused by trapped bacteria. Also, since oral infections can lead to more serious health problems (including heart disease), straightening your teeth is a wise choice for your entire body.
