Invisalign Treatment at Cashmere Family Dentistry
Crooked teeth or noticeable gaps between teeth can be a big drain of self-esteem, yet many adults don’t want to commit to years of wearing noticeable metal braces.
Introducing Invisalign: The Best Alternative to Braces
Invisalign has transformed so many smiles using simple orthodontic dentistry, yet because they are clear by design you may not have noticed your friends or family wearing them. This revolutionary orthodontics system can correct the alignment of your smile and create a beautiful and symmetrical appearance that you’ll be proud to show off.
Drs. Janie and Ryan Busk are happy to offer Invisalign and similar forms of orthodontic or restorative dentistry near you as your family dentist in Cashmere, WA. Give us a call at (509) 782-2516 to schedule your consultation for orthodontic dentistry and Invisalign.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign consists of a set of clear, custom designed plastic aligners that gently reposition the alignment of the teeth. With clear aligners, you won’t have to worry about goopy wax or uncomfortable brackets-- each custom made Invisalign tray is made up of a strong, virtually invisible thermoplastic that fits comfortably just over the surface of your teeth.
Your Invisalign Consultation
At your orthodontic consultation for Invisalign our team will guide you through a preliminary evaluation to determine if you are a good fit for Invisalign aligners. During the process they will collect precise measurements of your smile to design your custom aligners and determine how many aligners will be needed.
Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign can be used to correct the following conditions in most cases:
- Teeth are gapped, crooked, or protruding
- Underbite, overbite, or crossbite
- A misaligned or crowded smile
- Teeth that were treated with traditional braces but have shifted back over time
Invisalign Vs. Traditional Braces
If you can get past the immediate cosmetic difference of a beautiful clear smile compared to metal brackets, you may want to know more ways Invisalign is often preferred to orthodontics with braces:
- No brackets or wires that can poke or prod the cheeks
- No need to apply wax or clean the teeth differently
- No food restrictions; eat all the food you love to enjoy
- Invisalign aligners are easily removable and just as easy to clean
- Watch your progress in real time through clear aligners
- Length of treatment time of Invisalign is generally lower
The benefits of Invisalign versus traditional braces are numerous, and that is why we encourage our patients to come in for a consultation for orthodontic dentistry to determine what their unique dental goals are and how to best achieve them. As your local family dentist in Cashmere and nearby, your health is our top priority and your comfort is equally important.
How Long Does Invisalign Take?
Invisalign aligners need to be worn throughout the day and night, except when eating, brushing or flossing. After about every two weeks, you’ll switch to the next tray in the series. While your teeth gradually move into place, you’ll attend brief check-ups at our office every few weeks so that our team can gauge your progress. The length of treatment time for Invisalign varies from patient to patient, but most cases can be completed in about a year.
