• Invisalign a Great Alternative to Traditional Braces

  • Straighter teeth is something that many people desire. At Columbia Orthodontics, we often see adults who hesitantly ask if they are candidates for braces.

    teeth-414489_640We tell them that they are. A nice smile is one of the most attractive things about a person. Many of these adults, however, are very hesitant about wearing a mouth full of braces for two, three, or more years, because it can be a major pain, both literally and figuratively.

    Luckily, Dr. Croft can give you another option to traditional braces—Invisalign.

    We know that you will love your great new smile with Invisalign; however, cosmetics isn’t the only reason for straight teeth.

    When you have straight teeth, your mouth is healthier in general and there is less chance of tooth decay and gum disease. Invisalign makes it possible for more people to straighten their teeth.

    Invisalign is essentially invisible. You can straighten your teeth without unsightly metal in your mouth.

    The average cost is similar to that of traditional braces, which makes it affordable for many families.

    With Invisalign, the aligner trays are smooth and comfortable to wear. Traditional metal braces can be uncomfortable and cause irritation to the mouth.

    Invisalign is removable, so you do not have to wear the system during special occasions, or when you’re eating. With normal metal braces, you are stuck with them for the entire straightening process.

    Brushing and flossing your teeth is simple since the system is removable.  This allows you to brush and floss just like normal.

    As you can see, Invisalign is an exciting option.

    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 are a good candidate for Invisalign.
