Get the smile you have always wanted with Invisalign®
The Invisalign system of removable aligners are perfect for patients who are ready to take the first step towards getting a beautiful smile, without the awkwardness of traditional metal braces. Are you ready to get started? We invite you to call us at 604.222.8430 for a quick and easy consultation to explore Invisalign with Dr. Sidhu.
Invisalign Process at a Glance
During the consultation process, Dr. Sidhu will assess your individual needs and determine whether Invisalign is a good fit for you. What makes Invisalign ideal is that it can treat a number of teeth misalignment issues including:
• Overly Crowded Teeth • Spaced Teeth • Misaligned Teeth • Over Bite
Adults can expect treatment to last about a year, sometimes shorter or longer depending the complexity of each case. For teens, treatment tends to be as long as traditional braces, but the before and after results are fantastic.
Invisalign doesn’t interfere with your lifestyle
Invisalign aligners are thin pieces of medical-grade plastic that fit over the teeth, making it hardly noticeable that it’s there. That means that generally you can freely eat and drink what you want while in treatment, and continue with a normal brushing and flossing routine.
Invisalign aligners are also a more comfortable option, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. No metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your doctor’s office getting adjustments. As an additional benefit, Invisalign allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start. The virtual environment shows you just how your straightened teeth will look after treatment is completed.
Living with Invisalign
Patients wear each set of aligners for approximately 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to the final position the doctors have prescribed. You’ll visit Alma Dental Centre about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Brittany’s story is a great video testimonial about the overall experience:
Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
