Are your teeth crooked or crowded? For patients who wish for a straighter, more attractive smile, Dr. Lynn Leyde may recommend Invisalign® in Shoreline, Washington. Invisalign is the leading brand of clear aligners. They provide a way for you to straighten your teeth without the brackets and wires of braces. Invisalign consists of a series of clear, plastic aligners that slip over your teeth. These aligners fit snugly and gently straighten your teeth over time. About every two weeks, our dentist will give you a new set of aligners that will continue moving your teeth to their desired positions.
Invisalign has many advantages. Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible, so most people will not realize that you are straightening your smile. While braces have wires that can poke and irritate your mouth and gums, Invisalign uses comfortable aligners to straighten your teeth. With braces, brushing and flossing is difficult and takes much more time. Your clear aligners are removable, so you can brush and floss with ease. With braces, there are many food restrictions, but Invisalign aligner wearers can continue to eat all of their favorite foods.
