Learn About Invisalign®
We offer free Invisalign® consults. This is a highly effective treatment for straightening the teeth. We often recommend it because it is not only effective, but because patients benefit from the clear bracing technology. Invisalign is one of the most advanced clear aligner systems used today. When you come in for your appointment with us, we’ll review your overall oral health and determine if Invisalign is right for you.
If so, the process includes taking 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. After creating clear, removable, and BPA-free plastic inserts called aligners, 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. When it comes to Invisalign Edmonton Downtown residents should contact our offices as a first step.
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. Crooked teeth are hard to clean, which leads to increased risk of cavities, gum disease and even tooth loss. Invisalign® is a convenient alternative to traditional braces that takes most of the hassle out of the orthodontic process. Here are three major benefits to using Invisalign® over traditional braces.
No Awkward “Brace Face”
Especially for adults, metal braces aren’t attractive. The awkward brackets stick out, constantly catch food and often break, causing an emergency visit to the orthodontist. Invisalign® is nearly invisible on your teeth. The thin aligner trays mold over your teeth to gradually move your teeth into position, accomplishing the same task without the 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 teeth stay healthier by not catching food that could cause gum irritation, cavities and gingivitis.
Timing is Key
Metal braces in adults often take around a year and a half to three years, sometimes as long as five years to straighten teeth. Invisalign® can take around a year to a year and a half, cutting your time until straighter teeth down significantly. Treatments are carefully planned and fully computerized. This makes calculating the necessary time more exact from the beginning. Traditional metal braces often take longer than expected as your orthodontist adjusts to the way your teeth gradually move.
