At West Etobicoke Dental, we aim to create healthy, beautiful, straight smiles with Invisalign.
Invisalign is a modern, innovative, and more popular teeth-straightening and smile-enhancer option than traditional metal braces. It uses a set of custom-made aligners to fit your mouth as it slowly shifts your teeth to their ideal position.
Invisalign Dental Treatment: Redesigning Your Smile
The first thing that people notice about a person’s smile is their teeth. Orthodontic issues, such as crooked, misaligned, or unevenly-spaced teeth not only impact your confidence but also your oral health. Incorrect teeth alignment keeps you from brushing your teeth thoroughly, increasing your risk of cavities, gum disease, bad breath, and other dental problems.
An Invisalign dentist can treat various orthodontic issues, improve your smile, and eliminate the risk of potentially serious oral health conditions. With Invisalign treatment, you do not need to undergo uncomfortable orthodontic treatment to have straighter teeth and improved self-confidence.
Traditional braces use uncomfortable materials, such as metal archwires, brackets, and molar bands, to move your teeth to their correct places over time.
However, Invisalign is different. It uses a highly elastic material to shift your teeth, placing a greater amount of control on the movement of your teeth.
The unsightly materials used in metal braces can make your mouth look unattractive. Not only it is noticeable, but food can easily get caught in them without you knowing.
On the other hand, Invisalign uses clear aligners that are almost invisible, making it a better option than metal braces.
Unlike metal braces, Invisalign can straighten your teeth faster. While treatment with metal braces can take as long as 5 years, Invisalign only takes as short as 1 year or 2 years to work its magic.
Are You a Good Candidate for Invisalign Treatment?
Teens and adults want straighter teeth and a beautiful smile to make a great first impression. If you have crooked, misaligned, gapped teeth, or a bad bite, then you might just be an ideal candidate for Invisalign. If you want to learn more about Invisalign and if it is right for you, it is best to visit our Invisalign clinic and consult with our dentist.
How Invisalign Works
If you are an ideal candidate, our Invisalign dental professional will do a 3-dimensional scan to create a custom digital impression of your teeth. The computer will use these impressions to simulate a series of clear aligners designed to gradually shift your teeth into their proper position over a period of months.
The dentist will change the set of aligners every few weeks until your treatment is complete. However, for Invisalign treatment to be successful, you must wear them for at least 22 hours every day. This gives you enough time to eat, brush, and floss your teeth before you need to put them back on.
