Invisalign®

Straight teeth and an even bite are both key to an attractive, functional smile. With Invisalign®, we are able to offer our patients a convenient alternative to traditional orthodontic treatment. Invisalign® provides the benefits of orthodontic treatment (straight teeth and an even bite), with added flexibility.


INVISIBLE BRACES (INVISALIGN®)

What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign® straightens teeth using clear, virtually invisible removable aligners.

It is a great alternative to traditional orthodontic treatment. Invisalign® is available for both adult and teen patients.

What are the advantages of Invisalign®?

Unlike other forms of orthodontic treatment, Invisalign® aligners are virtually invisible. This allows our patients to maintain a natural looking smile throughout treatment. Unlike traditional fixed braces, patients can remove the Invisalign aligners whenever they desire. Being able to remove the aligners means that our patients can continue to enjoy their favourite foods and drinks without the restrictions necessary while undergoing treatment with traditional braces. Also, because the aligners are removable, cleaning and flossing teeth are far easier with the Invisalign® system than with traditional braces.

How does Invisalign® work?

After determining that a patient is a good candidate for Invisalign®, our team will begin by taking impressions. Invisalign® 3D imaging software is used to create a series of virtually invisible aligners, based on the impressions.

Patients will wear each aligner in the series for approximately two weeks before moving on to the next aligner. As patients move along in the series, their customized aligners gradually and gently straighten their teeth without the discomfort and inconvenience of traditional fixed braces.

How often are appointments required during Invisalign® treatment?

Patients will need to visit our office for a short appointment approximately every four to six weeks while undergoing Invisalign® treatment.

Is Invisalign® appropriate for adults?

Invisalign® is an increasingly popular option for our adult patients! In our experience, many adult patients are reluctant to proceed with orthodontic treatment. Although they understand the benefits and confidence that a beautiful smile and improved bite will provide, the idea of wearing traditional metal braces, possibly for several years, can be a deal breaker. With Invisalign® treatment, even teeth and a proper bite are attainable without compromising your natural looking smile during treatment.
