Clearly Gets The Job Done
Although metal braces are excellent at straightening teeth and eliminating crowding and spacing problems, many people hesitate to get them.
Why? Well, often it is because they do not like the look of metal braces. Invisalign® clear braces give all the benefits most people need from metal braces yet do not change your appearance while you wear them. Our Toronto dentist can fit you for Invisalign in our dental office, monitor your progress and make adjustments until the straightening process is complete.
What Are Invisalign Braces?
Invisalign is a special type of braces you can wear without anyone knowing you have them on. They are clear and fit snugly over your teeth to create the appearance of wearing no braces at all! At the same time, they gently and gradually move your teeth into better position.
Advantages of Invisalign over Metal Braces
You might immediately decide that Invisalign is just what you have been waiting for, simply because of the improvement in appearance over metal braces. Yet, Invisalign provides many other benefits that you cannot get with traditional metal braces. The following list sums up a few of the reasons you might prefer Invisalign braces.
- Natural appearance
- Take in and out when you like
- Eat normally
- Dental hygiene is easier
- Talk as easily as without them
- Have less gum and cheek irritation
- Spend less time in dentist’s chair
The Invisalign Process for Straightening Teeth
Navigating the Invisalign process is extremely easy and takes very little time away from your other activities and interests. After a discussion of the Invisalign process, your dentist takes x-rays and photos of your teeth and makes a physical impression of your teeth and mouth. All of this is sent to an Invisalign lab so your aligners can be created. You simply start with the first aligner and then change to a new aligner every two weeks.
Living with Invisalign
Managing your life is simple when you choose Invisalign for straightening your teeth. You can eat anything you want to eat. All you have to do is pop out the Invisalign braces each time you eat, have anything you like, and then pop them right back in! Brushing and flossing your teeth could not be easier than with Invisalign braces. Simply take out the aligners and brush and floss your teeth as you normally would. You can clean the aligners gently with a brush and soap and then put them back into place. When you want to do something with a risk of dental injuries like contact sports, take them out until you finish the activity. You can wear your aligners 20 to 22 hours per day for maximum effectiveness.
