Who Needs Invisible Braces?
Most problems related to the correction of crooked teeth, under and overbite are usually treated during late childhood or adolescence. However, Greenlake Dental also offers braces for adults. Metal braces were traditionally used to correct crooked teeth, and although they are effective, they are considered unsightly and uncomfortable.
Adolescence is the time when children begin to feel conscious about their appearance. Invisible braces are the ideal treatment option that combines aesthetics with functionality. The good news is that our dentist in Seattle, WA offers multiple options. Patients can get Invisalign®, Incognito®, or other choices to choose from.

How Do Invisible Braces Work?
Invisible braces are highly customizable and are fabricated to fit snugly according to the contours of your oral cavity. They are ideal for correcting crooked teeth that do not require complex treatment. If your teeth require more intensive straightening, your dentist may recommend metal braces.
A detailed exam and evaluation can help determine if you are an ideal candidate for invisible braces. They typically take roughly about 12 months to correct your teeth as opposed to 24 months with traditional braces.
All your invisible aligners are ready before you start wearing them, and each set should generally be worn for two weeks. This usually allows the dentist to calculate a precise time duration for your treatment.
Crooked teeth are usually corrected, starting with one lead tooth that requires the maximum correction. While making the decision to opt for invisible braces, you need to commit to the treatment as all sets of aligners are fabricated beforehand.
