Invisalign® In Brampton, ON
Bite misalignment doesn’t just affect the look of your smile; it can make it more difficult to keep your teeth clean by increasing the risk of dental decay from ineffective oral hygiene.
Both teenaged and mature patients find Invisalign clear dental aligners appealing, as they do not detract from your natural appearance. Adults interested in treatment to realign teeth find discreet orthodontics to be particularly beneficial for their social and professional lives.
With treatment from Invisalign®, you are no longer restricted to traditional orthodontia. At Tridont Dental Centre, we offer Invisalign as a cosmetically appealing alternative to metal braces.
To move the teeth to the correct position, Invisalign uses a series of removable clear aligners. These devices are custom-fabricated to the shape of your smile at each phase of treatment – from the first tray to the last. Invisalign technology is used to map the plan of the aligners, as well as your progress, which allows you to see what your finished smile will look like before you even starting.
When compared to traditional orthodontics, Invisalign requires increased patient responsibility. As the aligners are removable, patients have to be diligent about carefully cleaning and reinserting aligners before and after meals. Wearing aligners as intended creates predictable results, while inconsistent use will affect the length and success of the treatment.
The Benefits of Clear Braces for Straighter Teeth
The convenience that comes with Invisalign makes it a popular choice among patients. The aligners can be removed during meals, so patients do not have to avoid certain foods for fear of damaging appliances. While it is recommended that patients wear the aligners for at least 22 hours each day, the trays should be taken out before eating, cleaned, and put back in place.
Keeping your braces clean is easier with removable trays. Simply remove your aligners, rinse and brush them with a soft-bristled brush (avoiding the use of toothpaste), and brush and floss your teeth as usual. Not only does this keep the aligners clean, but it also helps patients maintain exceptional oral health during their treatment – a goal which is difficult with bonded brackets and threaded wires.
Perhaps the most compelling benefit of Invisalign is the transparency of the appliances and their unique design. Once in place, the trays practically disappear and are almost impossible to detect. Patients who take excellent care of their appliances can ensure they remain as inconspicuous as possible. The trays are also scalloped along the upper edges, following the natural line of the dental enamel where it meets the soft tissue. The aligners do not cover gums, so they don’t stand out and appear obvious.
Invisalign Patient Profile: Are You Qualified for Treatment?
Invisalign is an excellent option for many adult patients with minor to moderate dental alignment problems who can commit to a routine of wearing their trays for the full 22 hours per day. Patients who are experiencing alignment relapse after years of initial treatment and not wearing a retainer commonly choose Invisalign to provide the subtle change they need to feel confident. Before recommending orthodontic trays, our dentist will evaluate your smile to look for signs of periodontal disease and decay. The trays cover all sides of your teeth, so they can trap debris and aggravate these conditions. For complicated cases of dental misalignments, such as crossbite, overbite, and underbite, Tridont Dental Centre offers traditional braces.
