Do you want to improve the look of your smile and the performance of your bite without having to notably alter your appearance the way metal braces do? Understand that neglecting to correct your bite can damage your smile over time, and cause structural failures in your mouth that can cost serious money in dental repairs. Don't let aesthetic concerns keep you from good oral health. Choose Invisalign clear braces from your Maple dentist for a discreet dental solution that provides big results.
Invisalign is an orthodontic tool or technique which uses progressive sets of clear teeth-aligners to straighten your teeth. They are thin and may only affect your speech a little, if at all.
The appeal behind Invisalign or Clear Aligners is that they allow your teeth to be repositioned the same way braces do, but with a much more subtle device leaving you with the smile you always wanted.
The same thorough orthodontic diagnosis and treatment planning that is done for conventional braces, is the first step. Impressions and photos are taken and then sent to Invisalign. Digitized molds of your teeth are made and a computer simulated treatment is sent for review.
When the projected outcome is satisfying, you'll come in for a consultation and have the chance to see the projected outcome of the treatment. Once you are satisfied, the manufacturing process for your aligners begins and they are typically ready in about 2 weeks.
Invisalign does not allow you to control tooth movement the same way you can with braces. Compared to conventional braces, Invisalign treatment takes approximately one third longer. However, most patients are very satisfied and even thrilled with the results.
The cost of Invisalign is very similar to that of conventional braces, but comes with some added advantages. On top of a more desirable appearance, the aligners can be removed which allows for easier cleaning of your teeth.
Not everyone is a great candidate. Invisalign works best for adjusting front teeth where the bite is well aligned. Bite correction may require a combination of conventional orthodontic treatment and Invisalign.
