• Invisalign From Dr. Croft in Vancouver, WA

  • We’ve talked about invisalign before on our blog, but we want to explain more about these treatments options because for some people this is a new concept.

    Invisaligns, themselves, are not new. They have been around for several years and have been found very effective on the right individuals.

    Invisaligns are aligners that are not worn 24/7 like braces. Instead they can be removed a couple hours a day. We recommend they stay in 20 to 22 hours a day. They are easily removed so you can continue to brush and floss your teeth as you normally would. Cleaning the aligners is also easy.

Invisalign allows you to continue wearing your aligners without having to worry about any sharp brackets cutting your mouth. If your sport requires wearing a protective mouth guard, you simply remove your aligners and you’re good.

    Based on your individual treatment plan, a series of custom-made, clear aligners is created specifically for you. As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth gently and gradually begin to shift into place.

    Come on in to one of Columbia Orthodontics three locations—Salmon Creek, Cascade Park, Battle Ground. Dr. Croft will consult with you and discuss your case in detail to determine if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign.
