Invisalign in Calgary is a turned to solution for straightening teeth without the need for traditional orthodontic brackets. Developed by Align Technology, this orthodontic system is offered to patients of all ages – yes adults can use Invisalign – and a series of clear, customized, removable appliances (called aligners) are used to move teeth in to correct alignment and arch form.
Combing advanced 3D imaging along with proven orthodontic methods, Invisalign moves teeth in small steps until the desired result that has been mapped out by your dentist has been reached. This steady, non-aggressive method for moving teeth allows the entire dental system to adjust to the small movements. Small, steady force decreases gum inflammation and allows bone to form around a tooth in its new position.
General Dentists in NE Calgary – at Discover Dental – are experienced in using Invisalign to create straight teeth and healthy smiles. Making an appointment to see your NE Calgary Dentist is the first step in establishing if Invisalign is right for you. Once your Calgary dentist has determined that Invisalign is an appropriate tooth straightening system for your bite – custom appliances are made using Invisalign’s 3D imaging. A series of aligners are calibrated and each set of aligners are worn for approximately two weeks and only taken out to eat, brush and floss. As you replace one set of aligners with the next your teeth move – until you reach the anticipated result. Remember – regular daily homecare never stops regardless of dental treatment – you don’t want to end up with straight teeth that are full of cavities, so keep brushing and flossing every day.
Invisalign’s clear aligners are practically undetectable – making Invisalign a great option for people living busy social lives who may have been delaying orthodontic treatment due to the thought of wearing traditional brackets. You may be wondering if Invisalign is more expensive than traditional orthodontic systems. The good news is that Invisalign is an affordable method for straightening teeth and though it utilizes advanced technology, it is still reasonably priced – allowing people to move forward with straightening their teeth and creating a beautiful smile.
