Invisalign Treatment: An overview

The ability to address a wide range of orthodontic conditions without the use of metal brackets, wires, and bands has made Invisalign technology a favorite choice for both dentists and patients.

Our dentists are using Invisalign in Barrie to correct orthodontic conditions such as:

  • Crowding
  • Spacing
  • Overbite
  • Crossbite
  • Underbite
  • Malocclusion

Beginning with a simple set of impressions, the Invisalign lab will create digital models of your teeth to illustrate each phase of your orthodontic treatment. Upon your dentist’s approval, a series of crystal clear aligners will be fabricated and delivered to your dental office.

Your dentist will advise you to wear your aligners 24 hours each day, only removing them for eating and routine oral hygiene such as brushing and flossing. Created from a durable ultra-thin clear plastic, your aligners become virtually invisible once they are seated on the teeth. This feature is especially important to adults who recognize the advantages of orthodontic treatment, but are unwilling to compromise their appearance with traditional braces.

Each set of aligners should be worn for approximately two weeks before progressing to the next set. The aligners will gently guide the teeth into the proper position until the desired result is achieved. The estimated treatment time will vary for each patient, according to the details of the case. Your cooperation in wearing your aligners as much as possible will also help in moving you closer towards the final, beautiful result.

The benefits of the Invisalign system are difficult to ignore. The clear aligners are comfortable and nearly invisible during normal social interaction. Removing the aligners during eating allows patients to enjoy meals and snacks without limitations. Removing the aligners for proper oral hygiene enables patients to care for their teeth and gums without the use of special brushes and flossers.

Millions of patients have achieved breathtaking new smiles with Invisalign technology. Our team at Georgian Dental can use Invisalign to achieve the smile that you desire, as well. Just call to schedule your visit, and find out how effortless orthodontics can really be!
