Invisalign orthodontic treatment is a very interesting alternative to traditional methods. Indeed, it allows the alignment of teeth wearing removable and invisible aligners to achieve the same result. Thus, this procedure is ideal for people dreaming of straight teeth without having to wear braces.
Following a consultation with the dentist to find out if you are a good candidate for Invisalign, we take a 3D impression of your teeth. A series of custom-made transparent trays are then made from these images to fit perfectly with your dentition. The aligners are made of a medical grade thermoplastic material. Composite anchors can be placed at certain strategic points to gently shift your teeth into place. In general, each series of aligners is worn for about two weeks until the desired end position is reached. For effective treatment, they should be kept in the mouth at all times, except for eating and brushing.
The advantages of Invisalign:
– Invisible orthodontic treatment that does not interfere with your daily activities
– The aligners are easily removable to eat, drink, brush your teeth and be cleaned
– No braces
– Regular visits of short duration and less frequent than a traditional orthodontic procedure
– Visualization of the expected end result, on a computer screen
– Easy to care for
Invisalign is as effective as traditional orthodontics to treat a wide range of orthodontic problems. It is indicated for both minor dental movements and much more complex scenarios but is not ideal in all cases. Invisalign is very effective for correcting overlapping teeth, spaced teeth or misalignment of the upper and lower teeth.
Your entire permanent dentition must be present and we must make sure of your good dental health as well as repairing any cavitiy before starting such treatment.
