Invisalign® offered by Brampton Dentistry
Tridont Dental Centre
Bite misalignment doesn’t just affect the look of your smile- it can make it more difficult to keep your teeth clean, increasing the risk of dental decay as a result of the lack of or ineffective oral hygiene. Furthermore, older patients may be less likely to pursue braces, believing that the only way to correct their smile is through bulky metal braces.
Thanks to the innovation in modern dentistry, patients are no longer restricted to traditional orthodontia. At Tridont Dental Centre, we offer Invisalign® as an effective alternative to metal braces.
To move the teeth to the correct position, Invisalign® uses a series of removable clear aligners. To provide patients with lasting results, this clear orthodontia system uses modelling software to plan the treatment course. By using intraoral cameras to take detailed scans of the entire dentition, patients can get an idea of what treatment consists of, as well as what kind of results they can expect.
When compared to traditional orthodontics, Invisalign® is a patient-oriented treatment and yields a number of benefits for compliant patients.
One such advantage is the convenience that comes with Invisalign®. As the aligners are removable, Invisalign® does not interfere with patients’ diets or social life. While it is recommended that patients wear the aligners for at least 22 hours each day, the trays can be removed before eating. Before putting the trays back in, patients should thoroughly brush and floss their teeth to prevent food and debris from getting trapped between the aligners and teeth. Not only does this keep the aligners clean, but it also helps patients maintain exceptional oral health during their treatment
Another benefit that accompanies Invisalign® care is the clear transparency of the aligners. For adult patients, the idea of having to wear metal braces can discourage seeking orthodontic care. With Invisalign®, patients don’t have to worry that their treatment is a distraction.
Invisalign® Patient Profile
Unlike traditional orthodontia, the success of Invisalign® is dependent on patient compliance. As a result, Invisalign® is an excellent option for adult patients that have already achieved their permanent teeth and that can maintain the intensive treatment plan. Additionally, Invisalign® works best when used to correct mildly crooked teeth or to re-straighten smiles that have previously undergone orthodontic care. For more complicated cases of tooth misalignment, Tridont Dental Centre offers traditional braces.
