Dr. Yunki Cho is thrilled to bring new and innovative treatment procedures to patients in Monroe, WA that haven’t been offered here before. We are now offering invisible braces with Invisalign at Sky Valley Dental!
Imagine being able to straighten your crooked teeth without the hassle and embarrassment of wearing traditional metal braces. That is precisely what Invisalign offers our adult and teen patients.
How Does Invisalign in Monroe, WA Work?
Instead of using traditional braces, Invisalign uses aligners that are clear and fit snugly, are customized for your unique needs, and arranged in a series that gently moves your teeth into alignment. To achieve your best outcome in the planned timeframe, you will wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours each day and change them every two weeks.
You will also check in with Dr. Cho periodically every few weeks to make sure that your treatment is proceeding as planned. Invisalign is convenient because most of your aligner changes can happen at home, so treatment doesn’t interfere with your busy schedule.
The Advantages of Choosing Invisible Braces
Invisalign in Monroe, WA offers our patients many benefits, such as:
- Comfort. With Invisalign, you don’t have to endure the discomfort of brackets and wires scraping or poking your gums, cheeks, and other soft tissues.
- Convenience. Since your aligners are removable, you don’t have to make any changes to your diet or your home care routine.
- Discretion. Invisible braces are comfortable and easy to wear, so they don’t interfere with your normal activities.
Why Should I Straighten My Teeth?
While you may be thinking of all the advantages that a straighter, more beautiful smile can provide, there are also many benefits that invisible braces offer for your dental health.
Rotated or overlapped teeth are often hard to brush and floss, and plaque and bacteria can get caught in all the hard to reach places. This can put you at risk for developing gum disease or tooth decay.
A bite that is not aligned correctly can also cause problems for your jaw joint (TMJ). If your bite is off, your jaw has to compensate. This can lead to painful headaches, clicking and popping of the joint, pain or tenderness in your neck and shoulders, and a locked jaw.
Is Invisalign in Monroe Right for Me?
Dr. Cho is a certified Invisalign provider, and he can determine if invisible braces are the right treatment to achieve your best smile. During an Invisalign evaluation, he will take x-rays, photos, and pictures of your teeth that he will use along with 3-D imaging to create your treatment plan. He can even show you what your smile will look like after completing Invisalign.
