Orthodontics & Invisalign in Tri-Cities, WA

Invisalign Kennewick WA

Want straight teeth but don’t want to go through the hassle of dealing with traditional braces? Now you don’t have to! Southridge Dental specializes in Invisalign® aligners: a clear, custom alignment system that straightens teeth as an alternative to traditional metal braces.

How does Invisalign® work?

Invisalign® treatment uses clear, custom, removable aligners that gradually move teeth gently over time. Invisalign® requires a new set of aligners every two weeks to continue the progression of straightening the targeted teeth. Invisalign®  invisible braces can be used to treat crowded teeth, spacing between teeth, overbites, underbites and crooked or turned teeth. Dr. Sean Simper will start by taking a highly accurate scan of your teeth using Invisalign’s iTero Element® scanner. This allows for our highly skilled team to develop a treatment plan custom fitted to you and your orthodontic needs. Once your Invisalign® treatment plan has been finalized, your custom aligners will be made using Invisalign’s state-of-the-art printing process.

How long does Invisalign® take?

Invisalign® treatment time is typically 12 months, depending upon your specific condition and degree of misalignment. Dr. Sean will provide you a treatment plan that will include an approximated time for completion of the Invisalign Invisible Braces treatment.

Periodic check-ups are required so your progress can be evaluated and you can be given the next set of aligners. Every two weeks, after your exam, you will be given a new set of aligners to take home with you. After wearing each aligner set, results will be noticeable as your teeth begin slowly adjusting and aligning to your desired smile. This sequence will continue until you have achieved your new, Invisalign smile!
