Want straighter teeth?
Traditionally, people who wanted straighter teeth had no alternative but braces. But nowadays, there’s a new option: Invisalign.
Invisalign is a new way to straighten your teeth without braces. The process consists of removable aligners that gradually straighten your teeth. No brackets and wires, and none of the restrictions that come with metal braces! Best of all, The aligners are thin, clear, and fit snugly over your teeth, making them virtually invisible.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign treatment starts with a consultation with an Invisalign-trained dentist. Your dentist will evaluate your smile and then map out a precise, customized digital treatment plan that showcases the step-by-step transformation of your smile.
Once you approve your plan, your unique aligners will be created. You will wear each set of aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day, changing to a new set of aligners every 1 to 2 weeks, as directed by your dentist. Each set of aligners will gently and gradually shift your teeth into place, according to your treatment plan, until you reach your beautiful new smile.
Why should I choose Invisalign over metal braces?
Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible — people may not even notice you’re wearing them. You can remove them to eat and drink, to brush and floss, or for special occasions. There are no metal brackets or wires that could irritate your mouth or break, sending you to your doctor for an emergency visit.
Can I take the Invisalign aligners off whenever I need to?
Yes, you can remove your Invisalign aligners for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. You can take them off for special occasions, like a wedding, job interview, or for playing your favourite sport or instrument. Just remember to wear them 20 to 22 hours a day to get the best results.
Can the aligners slip off while I’m asleep?
It is very unlikely that your aligners would ever fall out, no matter what you are doing: sleeping, talking, laughing, etc. Invisalign clear aligners are designed to fit snugly around your teeth, so this should not be a cause for concern.
