Invisalign®

woman smiling with clear alignerWould you like to align your smile without everyone knowing? Perhaps you wanted to get braces as a teen but didn’t get around to it. It’s never too late to straighten your smile with Invisalign! This system is particularly great for adults and responsible teens who want a beautifully aligned smile but don’t want the traditional “train tracks” braces.

What Is It?

This orthodontic system uses clear plastic aligners that discreetly correct your teeth alignment. Invisalign is the original clear aligner provider with the most advanced technology—the proprietary materials and technology guarantee more predictable results.


What Are Some Benefits

In addition to being discreet, there are other advantages of this clear aligner treatment:

The trays are removable

Unlike fixed braces, Invisalign trays are removable, so you can take them out before eating and brushing your teeth. This attractive benefit means that no foods are off- limits. You can enjoy all of your favourites without having to worry about foods getting stuck in wires and brackets.

While the aligners are removable, you need to make sure you wear them for at least 22 hours a day for your treatment to be effective.

Keeping your teeth clean is easy

Maintaining good oral hygiene with traditional braces can be a challenge. Flossing can be tricky, as can getting stuck food particles out of the brackets. Some people who wear traditional braces have a greater risk of decay, gingivitis and other dental issues. That’s because braces trap food, and it takes scrupulous cleaning to keep them and your teeth free of food particles. With Invisalign, it’s easy to keep your teeth sparking clean.

No adjusting appointments are needed

Those who opt for traditional braces need to go to the orthodontist periodically so their braces can be tightened and adjusted so teeth can move toward alignment. With Invisalign, however, you just need to wear a tray for a specified period and then move onto the next one to be worn—to help gradually shift teeth into place. You also don’t have to endure those uncomfortable tightening procedures. And because you won’t have multiple appointments you’ll save time.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take?

As every patient is different, we won’t know the length of treatment until we provide an evaluation. Treatment time with this aligner system takes 12-18 months on average. Aligner therapy for certain patients can be as short as six months as opposed to two years for traditional braces.

Does it give the same results as traditional braces?

Yes, for the eligible cases, it does.

Do I need to wear plates/retainers after treatment?

Yes, with any teeth alignment therapy, you need to wear retainers for as long as you want straight teeth. Teeth moving is part of the aging process, so if you don’t wear the plates after therapy is over, then your teeth will move as you get older.
