Our dentists provide Invisalign® treatment in Edmonton, AB
Today, there are many different options available when it comes to getting beautiful, straight teeth. One of the most comfortable and discreet alternatives to traditional metal braces is Invisalign. An Invisalign consultation with one of our dentists is your first step!
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners made with 3-D computer imaging technology. Other than being invisible, there are many advantages Invisalign offers to patients:
- Invisalign aligners are removable so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment, and brush and floss with ease.
- Invisalign aligners are comfortable, with no metal to cause abrasions during treatment.
- Invisalign allows you to view your virtual treatment plan so you can see how your smile will look when treatment is completed.
You wear each set of aligners for about two 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 their final positions. About once every six week, you'll visit our office to ensure that your Invisalign treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 6-18 months depending on how much movement is required. Once treatment is completed, our dentists will provide you with a custom retainer or a fixed retainer to make sure your new smile will last a lifetime.
