What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® uses nearly-invisible, removable aligners to gradually move your teeth toward the projected final position. These aligners are tailor-made to comfortably fit over your teeth using cutting-edge technology.
How does it work? Here is an overview of Invisalign® treatment in Issaquah, WA:
- Complimentary consultation: You and our certified Invisalign® provider, Dr. Madhuri Vanama, will discuss your smile goals and needs, and evaluate your best treatment plan.
- Custom treatment plan: With an iTero® scanner, we will take fast, 3D digital images of your teeth – no goopy impressions. Using those images, Dr. Vanama will map out your treatment plan, including the exact movements of your teeth and how long treatment will be. Bonus: You can even preview your final smile and all the projected movements.
- Start wearing aligners: Shortly after, you will receive your custom-made aligners. For best results, you will need to wear them 20-22 hours a day and only take them out to eat, brush, and floss. These aligners are so clear people may not notice you are wearing them.
- Progress: Every one to two weeks you will change to a new set of aligners, ensuring your teeth continue to move little-by-little, day-by-day. Because you won’t need adjustments like braces, you will only schedule check-ups every six weeks or so.
- Straight smile: Ta-da! You will complete treatment with a beautiful, straight smile! To keep your smile in alignment, we can make you a Vivera® retainer.
Even better: If you sign up for Invisalign® at Discovery Dental you can receive $500 off treatment! Keep reading for more info.
My teeth have a (fill in the blank). Am I an Invisalign® candidate?
The general answer is: Yes, Invisalign® can straighten a broad range of cases.
However, the only way to know for sure is to schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Vanama and let the expert, and technology, do the talking.
In the meantime, here are some well-known bite issues Dr. Vanama can treat with Invisalign®:
- Gapped teeth: This one is pretty self-explanatory – missing teeth, spaces, teeth shifted and now there’s a gap, etc. These gaps can lead to gum problems or periodontal disease.
- Overbite: When your upper teeth extend over your lower teeth. An unresolved overbite can lead to gum issues, wear on the lower teeth, and cause painful jaw or joint problems.
- Underbite: The opposite of an overbite – when your lower teeth distend past your upper teeth. Underbites can interrupt the normal function of your front teeth and molars, and lead to tooth wear and painful jaw or joint problems.
- Open Bite: When your upper and lower teeth don’t touch when your mouth is closed. An open bite can cause poor or painful chewing, speech impairments, or temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ).
- Overcrowding: When there isn’t enough room in your mouth for all your teeth to fit comfortably. This case can worsen over time and result in severely crooked teeth – it’s best to address this sooner than later. Without proper spacing, you are more susceptible to plaque, tooth decay, and gum disease.
- Crossbite: When your upper and lower jaw are misaligned. Misaligned jaws can cause uneven wear on your teeth, gum disease, and bone loss.
