One of the biggest innovations in orthodontics in the last few decades was the emergence of Invisalign® aligners. Invisalign was the first to offer clear aligners for orthodontic treatment, changing the way adults and teens straighten their teeth. At Liberty Lake Smile Source, we are happy to offer the Invisalign aligner for our patients that want a straighter, healthier smile without wearing metal braces. Both teens and adults can enjoy the benefits of discreet, comfortable clear aligners for their orthodontic treatment at our clinic in Spokane Valley.
Invisalign aligners are made from a clear, flexible plastic and designed to fit over your teeth. The aligners are customized from a 3D scan of your teeth to create the right pressure to shift your teeth into the correct position. Adults enjoy the discreet nature of Invisalign – the clear aligners are almost invisible, allowing orthodontic treatment without noticeable braces. Every few weeks, a new set of aligners is issued to continue shifting the teeth. The aligners can be removed when eating or performing oral hygiene, offering more lifestyle flexibility than braces during treatment.
Teens also can enjoy more comfortable orthodontic treatments with the Invisalign Teen product. We can straighten teen smiles with clear aligners that do not have the wires, bands and brackets of braces. Teens enjoy the appearance of Invisalign and the ability to eat the foods they love – braces require restrictions on crunchy and chewy foods. The treatment time for Invisalign Teen is similar to braces, usually requiring 1-2 years, but the experience is more comfortable and less invasive. There are also fewer visits to our office with Invisalign than with braces, which can require frequent adjustments and repairs.
Invisalign for adults and teens can achieve beautiful results without the need for metal braces. If you or your teenager need orthodontic treatment, Liberty Lake Smile Source offers Invisalign and other orthodontic options at our dental center in Spokane Valley. We welcome patients from the greater Spokane and Post Falls, ID, area at our clinic in Liberty Lake, WA.
