Learn About Invisalign®
We offer free Invisalign treatment consultations!
Invisalign (sometimes called "invisalign braces") is one of the best ways to get straight teeth. We often recommend it because it is not only effective, but because patients benefit from the clear bracing technology.
Choosing Invisalign treatment means your orthodontic care is delivered by one of the most advanced clear plastic aligners available today. When you come in for your consultation at our Edmonton, AB dental office, we’ll review your overall oral health and determine if Invisalign is right for you.
How Does Invisalign Work?
If you're a good candidate for Invisalign, the first step is to take dental impressions of your teeth to create customized, highly accurate and detailed results. The first step is always to create digital, 3D images of your teeth to create a precise treatment plan.
Those 3D images will be used to create smooth plastic aligners that are clear, removable, and BPA-free. Also known as Invisalign trays, you’ll be able to slip them into place during the day and remove them when brushing your teeth or eating. The comfort and overall ease of use is one of the reasons many benefit from this technology.
If you're ready to improve your smile with Invisalign in Edmonton, AB, take the first step and contact us to get a free consultation and treatment plan session.
The Benefits of Invisalign®
If you aren’t one of the few born with perfect teeth, odds are your dentist or orthodontist will recommend teeth straightening to correct your misaligned bite.
Crooked teeth are hard to clean, which puts your oral health at risk from cavities, gum disease, and even tooth loss. Invisalign's clear aligners offer a convenient alternative to traditional braces that take most of the hassle out of the orthodontic process.

No Awkward “Brace Face”
Especially for adults, metal braces aren’t attractive. The awkward metal brackets stick out, constantly catch food, and often break off from a patient's teeth, causing an emergency visit to the orthodontist.
Invisalign® is virtually invisible on your teeth. The thin aligner trays mold over your smile, gradually moving it until you have straight teeth. It's the same result as braces, just without any jaw pain or extra trouble.
Removable in a Pinch
Traditional braces are stuck to your teeth until you get them off years later. Invisalign® is removable so you can eat or drink without the fear of breaking a bracket. Additionally, your teeth are easier to brush and floss when your aligners are removable. As a result, your dental health improves by not catching food that could cause gum irritation, tooth decay, cavities and gingivitis.
Timing is Key
When metal braces are used for orthodontic treatment, it usually takes a year and a half to three years - and sometimes as long as five years - to straighten teeth.
Adult or teen treatment with Invisalign aligners can take just a year to a year and a half, significantly cutting down the time it takes to fix crooked teeth. Treatments are carefully planned and fully computerized, which makes calculating the necessary time more exact from the beginning.
When you undergo treatment with traditional metal braces, it often takes longer than expected as your orthodontist adjusts to the way your teeth gradually move.
More Affordable with Dental Insurance
Thanks to its proven reliability and effectiveness, nearly all dental insurance providers recognize the Invisalign system as an eligible orthodontic treatment.
That means, if you have dental benefits, you can use them to lower the cost of Invisalign. It's easier than ever with options like direct billing from just about every insurance provider, so you can forget about your Invisalign cost worries, get your invisible aligners quickly, and start letting Invisalign work on giving you a healthy, straight smile.
