At Phinney Ridge Dental, we provide excellent orthodontic work for our patients throughout the Seattle and Ballard, WA area.
Great orthodontic work not only improves your smile, but it corrects your bite. When your bite is off, this can lead to chewing abnormalities, speaking issues, and jaw pain.
Additionally, when teeth overlap or are not straight, brushing and flossing are compromised. It’s simply impossible to clean between teeth that are tightly overlapped.
What to Expect at Phinney Ridge Dental
At Phinney Ridge Dental, our dentist assesses your oral health and the alignment of your teeth. Following your assessment, our dentist will recommend the best orthodontics to complement your unique smile.
Often, our dentist in Seattle recommends clear aligners, clear braces, or clear retainers to help bring your smile in line. These are lasting solutions, and often the most reliable methods available.
Solution #1: Invisalign Clear Aligners
Invisalign clear aligners are modern-day braces, but the system is vastly improved. With Invisalign clear aligners, your teeth straighten gradually through changing aligners every few weeks. Additionally, each aligner is customized to fit your mouth.
Unlike metal braces, Invisalign aligners are not bulky, obvious, or uncomfortable. You can even remove your aligners when eating, brushing, or flossing.
Solution #2: Clear Braces
Clear braces rely on invisible brackets and clear memory wire to bring teeth in line. This method generally means faster results because low force pressure continually works to bring your teeth in line.
This method to straighter teeth is also comfortable and not cumbersome like metal braces.
Solution #3: Clear Retainers
We usually offer clear retainers to our Seattle and Ballard, WA area patients following orthodontic work. This helps keep your teeth from shifting after your orthodontic therapy is complete.
