Gentle Touch Dental Group: Certified Invisalign Provider

Consider Invisalign to get the beautiful, straight teeth you’ve always wanted — without braces. A complimentary consultation with our Bothell dentist can determine if Invisalign is right for you.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable clear aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. So, you can smile more during orthodontic treatment as well as after. Invisalign is made with 3D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective. More than 70% of orthodontists in the US and Canada are certified to treat with Invisalign and Dr. Van Derschelden is one of them!

Why would I want Invisalign?

Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment, and no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in our Bothell dental office getting adjustments. Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.

Invisalign at Gentle Touch Dental Group

You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to the final position Dr. Van Derschelden has prescribed. You’ll visit our office about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages nine to 15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.

Please contact our Bothell dental office with any questions or to schedule an Invisalign consultation with our dentist. We look forward to meeting you soon!
