Do you wish you had straighter teeth, but don’t want to experience metal braces? Invisalign the invisible braces may just be the perfect option for getting those straight teeth.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is the clear alternative to metal braces. By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth with results you’ll notice sooner than you think. The course of treatment involves changing aligners approximately every two weeks, moving your teeth into straighter position step by step, until you have a more beautiful smile. And unlike braces, the removable nature of the aligners means you can take them out for special occasions, continue to eat your favourite foods and brush & floss to maintain good oral hygiene. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Less uneven wear on teeth
Easy to clean and eat
To begin, you will have a free initial consultation with our highly experience Invisalign trained dentist Dr. Michael Nguyen. He will determine what your teeth straightening goals are and to establish whether you are a candidate for this method. As part of the process to determine if you are a candidate, our staff will take x-rays and pictures, as well as make impressions of your teeth for models. If you are established as a candidate for Invisalign, these x-rays, pictures and impressions will be utilized to create your exact treatment course which will show exact teeth movements throughout the process.
Clear, custom-made aligners will then be personally created to follow your treatment plan. You will be required to wear the aligners throughout the day, only removing them to eat, brush or floss. While the actual time frame may vary slightly, you will change your aligner trays to a new tray every two weeks. Our Invisalign dentist will check your progress every 6 weeks or thereabouts. The length of the treatment time will vary by individual but our dentist will give you an estimated date of completion according to your progress and results.
