At Northwest Dental Medicine Enumclaw, we understand how important it is to feel comfortable with your treatments. For many of our patients, the thought of wearing braces to straighten their teeth is daunting, especially if an individual is an adult. Although orthodontic care doesn’t have an age limit, many adults who would like to straighten their teeth are hesitant about wearing braces because of social stigmas. Understanding how difficult it can be to commit to braces, our dentist and team use Invisalign® clear aligners to discreetly straighten teeth.
Invisalign aligners are made from a smooth, thin plastic that is virtually invisible when worn on the teeth. The aligners are custom made and computer generated to fit around your teeth, making small changes to the fit of the teeth. Every couple of weeks, you will change your aligner and wear it consistently to gradually and gently move your teeth into their proper places. Because Invisalign aligners are clear and removable, you can straighten your teeth without impacting your lifestyle. You can remove your aligners to eat and to brush and floss your teeth.
This treatment is a great way to improve the placement of the teeth, fixing problems like crowding, gapping, spacing and crookedness in the teeth. It can also improve problems with the bite, such as an overbite or underbite.
If you would like this treatment, you will need to arrange a consultation for Invisalign aligners in Enumclaw, Washington, with Dr. Rochelle Riley. Call 360-825-2563 to set up your consultation with our team.
