Invisalign®

Teeth straightening is easier than ever, thanks to Invisalign’s thin, clear aligners. Instead of wearing brackets and wires (traditional braces) these aligners gently move your teeth over a specific period of time.

How Long Will I Need to Wear Them?

Woman holding invisible alignerThe length of your Invisalign treatment will depend on how many trays are needed to achieve optimal tooth alignment. For some people, it might only be 10 sets; for others, it could be 50-60.

Each set of aligners is worn for about a week and then changed out with the next pair in the series. So, the overall length of your Invisalign experience is dependent on the amount of tooth movement that needs to take place.

Your Invisalign Consultation

If you’re considering Invisalign, we’ll see you for a consultation appointment where we take impressions of your teeth. The moulds are then sent to Invisalign labs where they’re scanned into their CAD/CAM equipment. At that point, your dentist can digitally map your desired tooth movement all the way to the end results. We can even create a digital movie for you to see the overall process and expected outcome.

Invisalign vs. Other Teeth Straightening

Invisalign is predictable and carefully monitored by certified Invisalign dentists or orthodontists. However, other popular invisible braces brands may not have any sort of involvement from a person trained in clear orthodontics. Instead, they’re left up to a computer.

When you choose Invisalign teeth straightening, you can be confident that your future smile is backed by decades of experience combined with the attention of a skilled clinical provider.

Living With Invisalign

The convenience of Invisalign allows you to take them out whenever you eat. You only need to wear them for 22 hours a day, so there’s flexibility to enjoy all of your favourite foods that might be off-limits to someone in traditional braces.

Brush and floss your teeth like normal each day, cleaning the inside of your orthodontic aligners each time. Change them out as directed.

We’ll want to check your progress to make sure your teeth are responding as they should. Plan to stop by our office about once every six weeks to pick up your next several sets of trays. We can make minor adjustments to your care plan as needed to ensure you get the results that you want.

Who’s an Ideal Candidate?

You’re never too old to enjoy straighter, healthier teeth! Invisalign is great for individuals in their 40s, 50s and beyond. Our adult patients tend to be the most committed to the success of their treatment, making them great candidates for removable clear braces.
