Invisalign in Issaquah, WA
Achieving straighter smiles isn’t simply a modern desire. In fact, it’s been something that even our ancient ancestors hoped to achieve. Fortunately, we don’t have to use the same tactic that our ancient ancestors had to! These days, we have patients of all ages turning to Dr. Goharkhay and the friendly, caring staff at Sammamish Dental Center because of the many orthodontic options we offer. If you are a teen or adult who is looking to fix a crooked smile, Invisalign might be able to help.
Choose a Discrete Orthodontic Treatment
While kids typically aren’t too worried about their appearance and how braces will impact them, we know that this often isn’t the case for teens and adults. Everything from senior photos to starting a new job can leave you feeling nervous and the last thing you want is a mouth full of braces.
This is one reason Invisalign is so popular. Instead of metal wires and brackets, Invisalign provides you with completely clear, custom-made aligners that cover teeth in much the same way as mouthguards or whitening trays. This makes aligners more discreet when talking and smiling, and they don’t show up in pictures!
Aligners are Comfortable
Another reason people may shy away from braces is that they’ve been told they are uncomfortable. The good news is that Invisalign’s patented technology provides you with aligners that are perfectly fitted to your mouth, based on impressions that we take during the planning and consultation phase.
Each aligner is made from SmartTrack® material, which is exclusive to Invisalign treatment. This thin but durable thermoplastic is smoothed and rounded at the edges to reduce irritation at the gum line. Plus, Invisalign aligners won’t need to be adjusted or tightened.
Treatment is Convenient
If your schedule is busy, you may wonder how getting braces will impact your life. Again, Invisalign is a great option for many of our older teen and adult patients because it fits into your lifestyle. The aligners are removable, which means that you don’t have to alter your diet in any way, and you can still brush and floss like you normally would without having to clean around brackets or wires. Wearing Invisalign is incredibly easy, just make sure that you are wearing your aligners as much as possible throughout the day (ideally between 20-22 hours).
Are you interested in getting Invisalign? If so, Dr. Goharkhay can examine your smile and easily determine if you or your teen is right for Invisalign. To schedule an appointment, call Sammamish Dental Center in Issaquah, WA at (425) 369-9100!
