Our Invisalign® application will keep kids happy, healthy, and confident during their teeth straightening process.
What is Invisalign®
Invisalign® is a form of clear aligners placed on the teeth as an alternative to braces. They are easily removed, similar to a retainer, and remain virtually unseen to others. Invisalign® is made of clear plastic in the form of custom-fit molds for each patient. On a two week basis, the patient will receive a new mold to help slowly adjust the teeth at an efficient pace. Patients can enjoy the benefits of teeth straightening without anyone else knowing their secret. The Invisalign® approach is just as effective as braces and provides even more benefits that surpass their metal counterparts.
Since Invisalign® molds are made of smooth plastic, they will not hurt or irritate the tongue and gums the way sharp metal braces will. The molds are easily taken out, so a patient can enjoy eating and drinking whatever they want during the realignment process. This also means that brushing and flossing routines do not need to be readjusted to suit the needs of Invisalign®. Best of all, Invisalign® is a clear alternative to braces that fit seamlessly onto the teeth.
Teeth straightening will add benefits to a healthy mouth other than just appearance. With Invisalign, teens and adults do not need to be embarrassed about their desire to have a straighter set of teeth. Teeth realignment is important for multiple reasons. Straight teeth make brushing easier, which reduces the risk of plaque buildup. With less plaque buildup, the risk of gum disease is greatly decreased.
The Silverdale Dental Center is devoted to teaching teens the importance of dentistry procedures and the advantages to keeping teeth in good shape with routine brushing, regular checkups, and approaches to teeth realignment and other procedures. We offer a warm environment where any former anxiety is eliminated when visiting the dentist. Plus, with processes like Invisalign, teens will happy to see results without comprising their appearance or lifestyle.
