Invisalign is a cutting-edge and highly innovative orthodontic system designed and implemented using advanced technology like 3D imaging and specialized software. The system is designed to correct misalignment and bite issues such as over-, under-, or crossbites with the help of customized aligners.
Invisalign aligners are custom-made for a comfortable fit and they are clear and removable. They apply gentle force to specific teeth at optimal times throughout treatment, gradually straightening them.
The first step in your Invisalign treatment in Redmond, WA, is a consultation with one of our dentists. During your consultation, our dentist will assess your oral health and the alignment of your teeth and discuss your needs and concerns in detail.
There are no known risks associated with using Invisalign. You might, however, experience mild discomfort or soreness when using the clear, plastic aligners for the first several days or while switching to a new set of aligners. After the first few days of using your aligners, you will likely get used to wearing them and will not experience any more discomfort.
Once you are determined to be a suitable candidate for Invisalign, our dentist will take images and scans of your teeth and use the Invisalign software to plan out your treatment. The dentist will also be able to show you what your treatment’s end results will be using this advanced software.
Once your treatment plan is ready, your custom Invisalign aligners will be designed and manufactured. You will receive a series of aligners that you will have to wear for 20 to 23 hours each day. We recommend you only remove the aligners when eating or cleaning your teeth. As the aligners gradually apply pressure and move the teeth, you will switch to a new set of aligners, typically every two weeks.
The treatment time will depend on each patient’s goals and the complexity of their orthodontic issues. Most cases are completed in six to 12 months.
During your treatment, you will see our dentist every six weeks so that we can track your progress and make any necessary adjustments. After the treatment is complete, we may recommend retainers to ensure your teeth remain in their new positions.
