Why consider Invisalign®?

Invisalign offers a number of benefits that may help you decide between traditional metal braces and clear aligners. Here, our Richmond Hill dentists offer some reasons you might choose Invisalign. 

About Invisalign

There are a number of options available to straighten your smile. Invisalign orthodontic treatment consists of a series of clear custom aligners that are hard to detect when worn.

Invisalign's series of custom aligners are designed to straighten teeth without the brackets or wires that come with traditional metal braces.

Your personalized treatment plan will map out your orthodontic treatment schedule. Throughout your treatment with Invisalign,  you will wear each set of aligners for approximately two weeks, then switch to the next set in your series. This process continues until your treatment is complete.

Invisalign vs Braces

Invisalign clear aligners have a number of benefits that make them appealing to those who want to straighten their smile without the look of traditional braces.

Invisalign for Different Stages

Invisalign offers orthodontic aligners specially designed for adults, teens, and even young children.

Invisalign used to be thought of as unsuitable for children due to the fact that their smiles are changing drastically. But with recent developments, Invisalign, Invisalign for Teens, and Invisalign First for children are designed to address the unique needs of each stage in dental development. 

Discreet

If you are concerned about the aesthetics of traditional metal braces, you'll appreciate Invisalign's clear plastic aligners. Invisalign's aligners are made from a thin clear plastic that can hardly be seen when worn. Typically, people won't notice that you're wearing them. 

Removable

There's no need to give up enjoying any of your favourite foods when you straighten your teeth with Invisalign. Invisalign aligners are removable. All you do is remove your aligners and store them in their handy container while you eat. When you're finished eating, simply brush and floss your teeth, rinse your aligners, and return them to your mouth. Now you won't have to miss out on the popcorn when you're enjoying date night at the movies.

Convenient

Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign aligners don't require adjustments. That means you will only need to visit the orthodontist for checkups and progress reviews throughout your orthodontic treatment. 

Things to Consider

While Invisalign can be quite appealing to many people, it is important to understand that this course of treatment is not suitable for all cases. Those with severe misalignments or cases of jaw misalignment would likely benefit from a different treatment option. 

You should also consider that while it is convenient to be able to remove your aligners whenever you want, the more time spent without your trays in your mouth, the longer your treatment will take. It is important not to abuse the privilege! Your aligners must be in your mouth for 20-22 hours per day in order to be effective.
