Using Invisalign braces to straighten the teeth without metal appliances
Drs. Geeta Gautham and David Ma of Humber Valley Dental in Bolton, Ontario, provide patients with solutions to help them achieve and maintain healthy, beautiful smiles. When it comes to straightening teeth, many patients are curious to learn more about invisible braces using clear teeth aligners. This treatment, referred to as Invisalign, is a revolutionary alternative to traditional metal brackets and wire braces. It allows our patients to get the results they truly want without unsightly orthodontic work.
Understanding how Invisalign works
Invisalign is a treatment that uses teeth aligners that fit over the dental arch. These are made with a clear, strong plastic customized for the patient’s current smile. With a series of trays, patients gradually realign their teeth by wearing each one in their series for two weeks at a time. The Invisalign treatment requires compliance from the patient to ensure they get the desired results in the quoted timeframe.
Who is a good candidate for Invisalign?
Patients considering Invisalign invisible braces will want to schedule their Invisalign consultation appointment with our team at Humber Valley Dental. This appointment allows our team to evaluate the patient’s smile and decide if they are a good fit for this or other treatments available at the practice. If patients choose to move forward with Invisalign, a series of digitally scanned images of the patient’s current smile are completed. These are then sent to Invisalign laboratories, where a series of trays are made to reposition the teeth into proper alignment within the dental arch. The best candidates for this treatment are those with either mild or moderate misalignment or malocclusion of the smile who can comply with treatment and wear the trays as directed for optimum results.
