Clear Aligners in Coeur d’Alene, ID, offer many benefits during and after treatment. Therefore, most patients prefer systems like Invisalign over the traditional bracket and wire braces.

Your dentist near Sandpoint has you come in for an orthodontic assessment to ensure Invisalign is a suitable option for your needs and goals. If it is, we take impressions of your teeth and send them to the Invisalign lab. The Invisalign lab fabricates a series of aligners and sends them to our dental office.

When you come in to pick up your aligners, we can show you how to place the first set. From there, you change them out on your own according to a provided schedule, usually every two weeks. At the end of treatment—several months or up to two years—we fit you with a retainer to ensure your teeth remain in their new positions.

Benefits of Invisalign

#1 You Can Remove Your Aligners

#2 Invisalign Is Virtually Invisible

Unlike metal and wire braces that draw attention to treatment, Invisalign is discreet and not immediately noticeable.

#3 Fewer Trips to the Dentist

With traditional braces, you must visit the dentist every few weeks for adjustments. With Invisalign, you change your aligners at home, which means fewer trips to the dental office.

#4 Straight Teeth Offer Many Benefits

Straight teeth are easier to brush and floss. And an aligned smile means less wear and tear on your dental enamel. Additionally, an aesthetically pleasing smile instills confidence.
