Invisalign™ in Collingwood
What Is Invisalign™?
Invisalign™ straightens your teeth using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. They gradually shift your teeth into place. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete. You’ll achieve a great smile with little interference to your daily life.
Is It As Effective As Traditional Braces?
Yes. When worn according to recommendations, Invisalign™ can be as effective as traditional braces for the most common teeth-straightening issues. Invisalign™ can effectively treat mild to severe cases, including underbite, overbite, overcrowding and gaps between teeth. The chances are very high you, or your teen, will be a great candidate for this service. To find out for sure, book a consultation with us.
Are There Practical Advantages Over Traditional Braces?
If you’ve had braces yourself, you already know the issues associated with metal wires and brackets. With Invisalign™ orthodontics from Collingwood Dental Centre, the aligners are removable so patients can play sports without the worry of being hit in the mouth by a ball – which can cause real damage in braces. They can also continue playing musical instruments properly without braces getting in the way. With braces, there is a long list of foods you shouldn’t eat, from popcorn to apples and raw carrots. With Invisalign™, there are no such restrictions. The removable aligners make it easy to brush and floss normally to maintain proper oral hygiene. Have a look at the information below for a summary of the advantages.
How long does Invisalign™ treatment take?
The average treatment time is about the same as with traditional braces, but the actual length of your treatment depends on the severity of our condition. In short, it depends. We can make estimates on the length of your Collingwood Invisalign™ treatment following a dental consultation which you can book right here.
