Gone are the days of having to deal with uncomfortable, metal braces. Now you can get nearly invisible braces, that are so discreet, others will barely even notice them.
Our dentists have helped many of your Scarborough neighbours get beautifully straight teeth with the use of Invisalign, the world’s most popular system of clear aligners.
Keep reading to learn more about the advantages of Invisalign over traditional braces.
The Invisalign system uses a highly advanced 3D digital process which analyses your smile and then digitally moves your teeth into the ideal functional and best looking position. This allows both our dentists and you to visualise the end results to match your specific needs and desires. Once your treatment plan is approved, a series of sequential clear aligners are manufactured, each one being precision-made to fit your teeth.
Each aligner places a very controlled pressure across each tooth to move them with a high level of precision. We’ll give you a new set of aligners every few weeks; each new aligner is designed to move your teeth an extra couple of mm each time.
Because of the convenience and accuracy, Invisalign is very popular because it can do all this and remain virtually undetectable to the naked eye. It’s suitable for a lot of adults because they can straighten their teeth with the discretion needed to get on with their professional work or life.
Most patients will have between 18 and 36 sets of aligners. The shorter treatment plans take just a few months, with the more complicated plans needing around 18 months. Again, during your consultation, we’ll be able to give you a more accurate idea of how long your treatment should take.
For best results, you need to wear your aligners full-time, only taking them out for eating and brushing / flossing. You will also wear your aligners while sleeping, for a total of about 22 hours a day, every day. Maintaining a strong oral hygiene regimen is part of the process, so be sure to brush after each meal and floss daily. We’ll see you for a check up every 4-6 weeks and provide you with the next sets of aligners, which will be swapped out once every 7-14 days.
Everyone’s teeth are different, as such, results will vary. With the Invisalign ClinCheck software, we’re able to show you an accurate representation of how your teeth will look once your treatment has been completed.
Invisalign offers these benefits compared to traditional metal braces:
• Aesthetics: because the aligners are nearly invisible, your friends and coworkers are less likely to notice that you are having orthodontic treatment.
• Hygiene: traditional braces require more complex hygiene care, whereas Invisalign is removable and teeth can be brushed and flossed as per usual.
• Comfort: your tongue won’t get caught on metal brackets and the soft tissue inside your cheek won’t get irritated since the aligners are made of a smooth moulded plastic material.
• No diet restrictions: with traditional braces, you avoid foods such as chewing gum, hard foods and crunchy foods that could potentially damage your brackets and wires. With Invisalign, since aligners are removed before eating, you can eat all of the foods you enjoy.
Our experienced team has received specific training and certification from Invisalign to ensure you get the best possible results. When you call up our practice and schedule your Invisalign consultation, you’ll soon discover what your teeth will look like once they’ve been perfectly aligned
With the advancements in technology, Invisalign is able to treat even some major issues with teeth like overbites or rotated teeth. It does depend on your individual situation though. We offer a free consultation where we will determine if you are a candidate for Invisalign, and even show you what your teeth will look like after treatment.
No, in fact many professionals choose to get Invisalign treatment because it is so effective and uses almost invisible aligners. We have had patients in their 40’s and 50’s take advantage of Invisalign. Each treatment is customised for your individual needs.
Treatment typically takes from 6 months up to 18 months, depending on how much your teeth need to be moved. The aligners are meant to be worn all the time, apart from eating or cleaning your teeth, so if you don’t wear them as directed, your treatment could take longer.
When you first start treatment, there may be a slight adjustment period during which the aligners may feel slightly uncomfortable. Most patients become accustomed to their new aligners fast, and after a while, hardly even notice that they’re there at all.
The cost for Invisalign varies depending on how many aligners are needed to move your teeth to their ideal position. This can be anywhere from 8 to 48 sets of aligners. Typical costs for a full case will range between $8,000 to $9,500. When you come in for your free consultation, we’ll be able to give you an exact cost including promotional offers we may be running at that time.
