PALO ALTO, CA, February 10, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Wu Orthodontics is proud to announce that Dr. Eric Wu is now an Elite Preferred Provider of Invisalign! This is the highest level of experience and expertise with Invisalign. Dr. Wu has been using Invisalign since 2003 and has treated over 300 cases!
"As a Premier Preferred level provider since 2011, reaching the Elite Preferred Provider level is the next step in progression for Wu Orthodontics in staying on the cutting edge of modern digital orthodontic care," says Dr. Wu.
Invisalign uses a series of customized, clear aligners to straighten teeth. Thousands of orthodontists and dentists in the United States and Canada use Invisalign to treat mild orthodontic cases. However, only the top 1% will achieve Elite Provider status like Dr. Wu.
Even though both general dentists and orthodontists treat patients with Invisalign, it is imperative to note that orthodontists go through a rigorous additional 2-3 years of training to earn the specialist designation in the alignment of teeth and jaws.
Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible to the naked eye. They are comfortable to wear. The aligners are made from a special plastic that has smooth, rounded edges so they won't irritate your mouth and tissues like traditional braces often can.
Wearing Invisalign Aligners
Invisalign can be removed when you eat and brush, so you can eat what you want during treatment. It is also much more convenient and sanitary than braces, because you can brush and floss your teeth normally.
How long does Invisalign take? Many cases can be treated in one year or less, but each individual case is different. To find out if you are a candidate for Invisalign, Dr. Wu is the orthodontist in Palo Alto to ask!
Invisible Braces for Teens
Wu Orthodontics is also a certified provider of Invisalign Teen, which means even teenagers can enjoy the esthetics and convenience of Invisalign. With today's teens' active lifestyles, getting metal braces can be awkward and sometimes inconvenient for many kids.
Invisalign Teen will straighten their teeth without having to deal with many of the traditional metal brackets and wires, allowing them to eat whatever they want! The other major benefit for teens is that the aligners can be removed, so their brushing and flossing are vastly improved.
Orthodontics for Adults
Says Dr. Wu, "Half of my practice is devoted to adult orthodontic care, and the majority of them choose to be treated in Invisalign clear aligner therapy." Invisalign is a great option for business professionals and also for adults who want a healthier smile but don't want to be seen wearing metal braces.
