Years back, patients with crooked teeth were only limited to conspicuous, unflattering metal braces. If you missed the “braces train,” it doesn’t mean you must live with a misaligned smile. Invisalign treatment from Humber Valley Dental in Bolton, Ontario, can help you achieve a beautiful, straight smile faster, easier, and more discreetly than you could ever think. The Invisalign teeth straightening system uses a series of detachable, invisible aligners to gradually shift your teeth to the ideal position without a metal mouth.
During the early 2000s, Invisalign was commonly used as retainers for patients who had straightened teeth using metal braces. Since then, Invisalign has evolved significantly, and today it’s used to handle moderate to severe orthodontic issues. This revolutionary orthodontic system can address several dental issues, including bite problems and overcrowded, gapped, or crooked teeth.
The journey starts by visiting an Invisalign-Certified dentist like Dr. Geeta Gautham. After a full dental exam, we take a 3D scan of your mouth to examine your bite from every possible angle. Using your mouth model, we use Invisalign software to determine how and when each tooth moves. Next, we order your series of aligners, each to be used every two weeks. This pattern continues until your treatment is complete.
We expect you to wear your Invisalign clear braces for 20-22 hours daily. Only remove them when cleaning your teeth or eating, although you can drink clear liquids with your aligners on.
There’s a lot to love about Invisalign. Following are the benefits of Invisalign teeth straighteners.
