Obtain Orthodontic Realignment with Invisalign Treatment
In the past, straightening the teeth was only achieved using traditional orthodontics such as metal brackets and wire braces. That caused many individuals to avoid talking to their dentist about realigning their smile to avoid the embarrassment of using metal appliances to achieve the results they wanted. Fortunately, the field of orthodontics has changed dramatically, and now patients can use orthodontic alternatives such as Invisalign aligners to get the smile they’ve always dreamed of without the embarrassment of metal appliances. Drs. Geeta Gautham and David Ma of Humber Valley Dental in Bolton, Ontario, can educate you further on Invisalign aligners and how they work to understand your options better when it comes to realigning the teeth.
How does Invisalign orthodontics work?
Invisalign is an orthodontic method that straightens the teeth using clear, removable aligners. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible, so no one will know you’re wearing them–unless you tell them!
The Invisalign system uses a specialized series of custom-made, clear aligners to move your teeth slowly into the desired position. The patient uses each aligner tray for about two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series. As you replace each aligner tray, your teeth will move slightly until they reach their final, ideal position.
In addition to being virtually invisible, Invisalign trays are also removable, so you can eat and drink whatever you want without worrying about getting foods or candy stuck with metal brackets or wires. It also makes it simpler to floss, eliminating the need for dental accessories to get the floss between the teeth and the metal aligners. Those who use Invisalign have fewer periodontal issues such as decay or disease, thanks to the ease of caring for the teeth and gums during treatment.
