Invisalign Braces

Want to straighten your teeth without a lot of hassle?

 North Seattle Dental offers Invisalign as a new approach to traditional braces. In fact, you could say that  Invisalign is the “clear alternative” to traditional braces.

Your Invisalign treatment will consist of a series of aligners (hard clear trays) that you switch out about every two weeks. Each aligner is individually manufactured with exact calculations to gradually shift your teeth into place. And since your Invisalign system is custom-made for your teeth and your teeth only, with a plan devised by you and your dentist or orthodontist, you know you’ll end up with a smile that truly fits.

If you’re ready for a smile that transforms your appearance, Invisalign is your answer. Although there are many choices out there, no other works as effortlessly as the Invisalign system. Click here for 5 Reasons to Invisalign Your Smile!

Invisalign is the best way to transform your smile without interfering with your day-to-day life. 

With Invisalign treatment, you also can lighten your teeth with our take home lightening system. As a patient of our practice, you will qualify for the “lightening for life” program. You have access to free lightening product for the rest of your life as long as you are a patient in our practice.

What kind of bite problems can Invisalign® correct?

Invisalign® corrects the same dental problems as traditional metal braces; the only difference is that Invisalign® trays are almost invisible to the naked eye, and can be removed at will.

Here are some problems that are commonly corrected with Invisalign®:

  • Overcrowding – This occurs when there is too little space for the teeth to align normally in the mouth.  Overcrowding can cause tooth decay and increase the likelihood of gum disease.
  • Large gaps between teeth – This can sometimes occur because teeth are missing or because the jaw continues to grow abnormally.
  • Crossbite – This common dental problem occurs when one or multiple upper teeth bite inside the lower teeth.  As a consequence, uneven wear can lead to bone erosion and gum disease.
  • Overbite – This problem occurs when the upper teeth project further than, or completely cover, the lower teeth.  Eventually, jaw pain and TMJ may occur.
  • Underbite – This is the inverse of the overbite; the lower teeth project further than, or completely cover, the upper teeth.  Eventually, jaw pain and TMJ can occur.
