Do You Wish You Could Have Straighter Teeth?
Do you wish you could have straighter teeth, but can’t bear the thought of wearing metal braces? Does your teenager resist getting braces because they don’t want to have a mouth full of metal? The good news is that Invisalign clear braces can help straighten crooked teeth and correct misaligned bites just as well as traditional braces, but with one clear advantage: they are clear!
The benefits of the Invisalign system include:
- Virtually invisible — Invisalign uses clear plastic trays called aligners that are customized to your mouth. People will hardly notice you are even wearing them. This is generally one of the top reasons patients choose Invisalign over conventional orthodontic treatments. While they do want straighter teeth, they’d rather not wear metal in their mouth.
- Comfort — The aligners are smooth and comfortable to wear. They don’t cut into your mouth, like metal braces can. You can also remove the aligners to eat and to brush your teeth. You can enjoy the benefit of properly cleaning your teeth and maintaining your dental health throughout your treatment.
- Results — Invisalign is just as effective as traditional braces when worn at least 22 hours per day. The aligners gradually shift your teeth into an optimal position and the result will be a brand new smile that will make you grin from ear to ear.
Invisalign uses a series of aligners that you will change out every 2 to 3 weeks. Each aligner is tailored to move your teeth incrementally. Patients will check in with us on a regular basis to make sure treatment is progressing and that there are no problems.
If you have questions about orthodontics and would like to know if Invisalign is right for you or your child, please contact us to schedule an appointment at our Ontario office.
