Orthodontics in Snoqualmie

Orthodontics is a subcategory of dentistry that involves the positioning of the teeth and the alignment of the jaw. When the teeth are positioned improperly, or when the jaw is misaligned, it can cause severe discomfort and major oral health problems. Additionally, these issues can cause a person’s overall appearance to suffer. Snoqualmie Modern Dental Center offers fast and effective orthodontic treatments that are designed to correct these issues and help patients achieve improved dental health and better-looking smiles.

Some of the problems that can be corrected with orthodontic treatment include overbites and underbites, misaligned and crooked teeth, excessive spacing and crowding. By receiving proper orthodontic treatment, a patient is also less likely to suffer from gum disease, jaw discomfort, headaches and neck pain. Fortunately, orthodontic treatment is easier and more effective than ever before, with patients achieving fast results that look great. Snoqualmie Modern Dental Center provides Invisalign, ClearCorrect and retainers.

What is orthodontics?

Orthodontics refers to a sub-category of dentistry that focuses solely on the positioning of a person’s teeth and the alignment of their jaw. Many people suffer from orthodontic issues that require some type of intervention through orthodontic treatment. By receiving orthodontic treatment, a person can overcome many oral health problems and achieve a beautifully straightened smile that stands out for all the right reasons.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is the brand of clear aligners that a patient can wear over their teeth as a form of orthodontic treatment.

The aligners are custom-built to fit very tightly over the teeth, and they are worn for a minimum of 20 hours per day. During this time, the aligner will continuously adjust the teeth into the proper positioning. Each aligner is replaced with a new one every two weeks until the teeth are aligned correctly. Since the aligners can be removed, the patient can eat and drink whatever they would like during treatment. Most patients complete Invisalign treatment after one to two years.

What is ClearCorrect?

ClearCorrect invisible aligners are worn over the teeth to adjust their alignment and positioning. Each set of ClearCorrect aligners is custom-built so that they grip very tightly over the teeth. The aligners must be worn for at least 20 hours per day, and they should only be taken out for eating or cleaning. The patient will replace the current aligner with a new one every two weeks to constantly adjust the positioning of their teeth. On average, treatment with ClearCorrect takes one to two years.

What is a retainer?

After orthodontic treatment is complete, there is a risk that the teeth will revert to their prior positioning. A retainer is an oral appliance that prevents this from happening. Retainers are removable, and they are also very effective in ensuring that the results from orthodontic treatment are maintained.

Nice and professional service! The dentist is very gentle and not pushing (for more spending). Besides the environment is clean and pleasant, a very good plus!

This is by far the best Dental Care services I've got in the past ten years! Staffs are very welcoming over the phone and in person. Great scheduling experience btw (you know that could be REALLY frustrating sometimes) Truly impressed by how modern & clean the office is. Dr Chang was very clear and detail on the whole procedure, listens to my concerns, then explains all the options well with his big friendly smile! How important it is to feel relief and not criticizing by your own dentist! Snoqualmie Modern Dental Care took care of us so well!!! Glad we don't need to keep looking around for a good dentist anymore!
