Issaquah Invisalign Premier Provider
Consider Invisalign to get the beautiful straight teeth you've always wanted — without braces! A complimentary consultation with Drs. Dr. Oleg, Dr. Nikole or Dr. Sakai at our Issaquah office can determine if Invisalign is right for you. As Preferred Providers of Invisalign, we have the trust of our patients and Invisalign with the level of expertise that we offer.
We treat all of our Invisalign patients as our aesthetic patients, not only correcting the functional problems with malocclusion, but also enhancing cosmetics. We redefine the idea of personal and individualized care in dentistry and go above and beyond for our patients, even billing their insurance for them.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a clear, aligner-based orthodontic treatment option for patients that would like to straighten their teeth or correct their bite without the use of conventional metal braces. Invisalign aligners are removable and practically invisible, thus preventing food getting stuck during eating as would happen with metal braces. Being able to use clear trays hides the fact that you are going through orthodontic treatment and doesn't interfere with your social life.
Treatment depends on the level of complexity and the position of your teeth, but most patients are great candidates for Invisalign.
If you would like to have the position of your teeth corrected and can commit to wearing clear trays throughout the day, except for when you eat, brush, and floss, then Invisalign would be a great method of treatment for you!
The Advantages of Invisalign
Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, removable, comfortable, and affordable. There is no need to change bands or wires, which lessens the amount of visits you’ll make to our office, and you can even use the trays to whiten your teeth during Invisalign treatment!
Treatment with Invisalign takes about 12 months, though that will vary from case to case. Patients come for their Invisalign appointments every six to eight weeks. Most appointments last less than 30 minutes. We pride ourselves on being flexible with appointment frequencies and work around our patients’ schedule.
We also now offer our Invisalign patients access to the iTero® digital scanner, which provides quick and painless impressions without the inconvenience and discomfort of the gooey impression molds frequently still used at other dental practices. The digital scan is included as part of our free consultation and displays a patient’s potential before and after results within minutes. This helps patients quickly visualize what the end product will look like following their Invisalign treatment, which we’ve found to be invaluable.
Keeping Your Smile Beautiful after Invisalign
When treatment is completed, Dr. Oleg, Dr. Nikole or Dr. Sakai will discuss different options of retaining the corrected tooth position with the patients. Options include clear trays that can be worn at night or a retention device that can be attached to the back of the lower teeth. Retention is very important once any orthodontic treatment is done, as teeth have a tendency to move back to their original position.
To determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign, simply visit our Issaquah dental office for a free consultation with our Invisalign-certified doctors. We will evaluate the position of your teeth, gums, smile display, and a few other important criteria to decide if Invisalign is right for you.
