We are offering fee initial orthodontic records including the digital intraoral scan and the Invisalign treatment setup. We are also including a second appointment at no charge to review your Invisalign setup with Dr Riolo; you will be able to see your treatment result before we even begin aligner therapy with Invisalign!

We are the largest provider of Incognito Invisable braces behind the teeth in the Pacific Northwest. Dr Riolo has been using Incognito lingual braces since 2006.  Dr Riolo wore these braces behind his teeth himself so he understands this the Incognito system from multiple prospectives.

Dr Riolo initially certified as an Incognito provider in 2006, Riolo orthodontics is now recognized as an “Center for Excellence” by 3M Unitek and Incognito Braces.  Today lingual braces (braces behind the teeth) are used on about a third of our patients.  

If you miss the Health Fair you can contact us at SeattleOrthodontist.com our Invisalign special offer is in effect until through the month of June.

Seattle orthodontist patients’ guide to Invisalign

Does Invisalign work?

Yes, but the answer is complicated. Invisalign is a custom orthodontic appliance that is innovative and technically sophisticated. This appliance can be a powerful tool in well trained experienced hands

Invisalign is a commercial product that is marketed directly to the public. This marketing leads many patients to believe that any orthodontic problem can be treated using Invisalign. Invisalign technology is also heavily marketed to both orthodontists and general dentists under the mistaken belief that the computer-programed used to generate Invisalign treatment is sufficiently sophisticated to produce satisfactory orthodontic treatment results without significant doctor modification.
