Invisalign® Vancouver WA
Many older patients in Vancouver, WA will benefit from the Invisalign® System. This clear alignment system is meant to gradually adjust and move the teeth into perfect alignment. Using the latest in dental and orthodontic imaging, Invisalign is a modern way to get the smile of your dreams!
Benefits of Invisalign®
- Discreet - Older teens and working professionals love the ability to straighten their teeth with clear alignment, allowing them to get a beautiful, straight smile without anyone even noticing.
- Flexible - The clear aligners are removable, which is why we don’t recommend this system for young patients. It gives you the flexibility to remove the aligners for eating or speaking (when necessary). As long as the aligners are worn for at least 22 hours per day, your treatment will be successful.
- Comfortable - Invisalign clear aligners are made FOR you! Using the latest in dental imaging, our orthodontists can construct an amazingly accurate 3D replication of your smile. With this technology, we can even show you how your teeth will gradually move into place with each aligner. This custom fit (made at an Invisalign lab) allows for the perfect comfort without brackets or wires.
Your First Consultation
At your initial consultation, we will discuss your orthodontic needs and evaluate whether Invisalign treatment is right for you.
Your Custom Treatment Plan
We will use a scanner such as the iTero® digital scanning system to create fast, precise 3D digital images of your teeth. Then we will map out a precise treatment plan, including the exact movements of your teeth and how long your treatment will be. You’ll even get to see how your teeth will move and preview your new smile.
Your Invisalign Clear Aligners
Your custom-made aligners will be made of Invisalign’s proprietary SmartTrack® material. They’re virtually invisible, so most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them during your teeth straightening.
Wear your Invisalign clear aligners 20 to 22 hours a day for the best results, and take them out only to eat, brush, and floss.
As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth will gently and gradually shift into place. We may recommend that you begin wearing a new set of aligners every week and schedule checkups every six weeks or so.
Taking Care of Your New Smile
When your treatment is complete, ask us about a Vivera® retainer. Vivera retainers are custom-made using the same state-of-the-art technology as Invisalign clear aligners.
For the last 25 years, Invisalign has been increasing in popularity among adults and teens alike.
Invisalign® Teen has now been introduced to help teenagers avoid wearing metal braces which can make them look unattractive on their Facebook profile, not to mention in their yearbook photo. This straightening system involves having clear aligners, which are virtually invisible, fit over your teeth so no one needs to know you are having your teeth straightened. Because they are removable you can eat whatever you want. You can also brush and floss your teeth as normal, which helps keep your gums and teeth healthy. They are more comfortable to wear since there are no wires or brackets to irritate the inside of your mouth.
Our Vancouver orthodontist specializes in your smile. Our new patients often inquire about what their best options are for straighter teeth.
