Invisalign is an alternative to metal braces in which a series of clear, removable trays are worn in order to gently move and straighten teeth into better functional and aesthetic alignment. Invisalign can treat a wide range of orthodontic issues. Both teens and adults can be successfully and predictably treated with Invisalign.
Invisalign treatment is now helping thousands of Canadians achieve their ideal appearance. This leading-class alternative to traditional metal braces helps straighten and align teeth and improve a person’s smile for the years to come.
Our team of dentists and dental hygienists at Guelph Village Dental work with patients to help them understand the Invisalign process and to guide them in achieving a great looking smile for the long-term.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign treatment involves the use of custom-made aligners to gently move teeth in a straight, funcional and natural-looking position in the mouth. Each aligner shifts the person’s teeth slightly, moving them in the horizontal and vertical positions, and imparting a level of force that assures the ideal appearance and minimal discomfort. The entire treatment is mapped out by advanced computer software and the team at Guelph Village Dental, as they set a path that is designed uniquely for the patient and their oral health requirements.
What are the Benefits of Invisalign?
Compared with traditional metal braces, there are a number of advantages gained by using Invisalign. The skilled team here at Guelph Village Dental can help Invisalign patients achieve the following through their treatment process:
The Invisalign product is nearly invisible to the naked eye. This means that patients can achieve their ideal appearance over time, using the treatment while taking on their normal day-to-day activities. There is no negative social effect of wearing the Invisalign aligners.
- Invisalign Offers Maximum Comfort
The Invisalign aligners are designed to rest comfortably in the mouth. The entire system is crafted so that the patient rarely thinks about the Invisalign product being in use. They can be worn naturally throughout the day in complete comfort. There is minimal discomfort associated with moving teeth through Invisalign treatment.
- Dental Hygiene is Easier with Invisalign compared to Braces
Since the Invisalign aligners are removable, patients can exercise ideal oral hygiene during their treatment. With metal braces, it is difficult to keep the teeth and gums in ideal health due to wires and brackets that are bonded onto the teeth. Simple brushing and flossing can be easily achieved during Invisalign treatment because the trays are removable. In contrast, a lot more time, attention and tools are required to keep teeth clean and healthy during treatment with braces.
- Predictable results
Each element of the Invisalign process is orchestrated through a computer design program that models the results and ensures the optimal long-term strategy for each patient. This means that Invisalign assures effective treatment results no other bracing system can provide. As an added benefit, patients can see what their teeth will look like at the end of the treatment through this advanced and proprietary software.
