Invisalign

Here at North York Smile Centre, we offer a state of the art Invisalign solution to fix your misalignment, extra spaces between your teeth, and overcrowding, among other issues in just a matter of few months instead of 2-3 years required with traditional metal braces.


With our Invisalign treatment, you can avoid the metal wires and brackets of the traditional braces and get straight, properly aligned teeth in a simple and affordable way.

What Are Invisalign Trays?

Invisalign is today’s alternative to the traditional metal braces with two clear benefits: first, as the name suggests, the Invisalign is invisible clear braces, so it’s designed for patients who want to don’t like the aesthetics of the braces’ wires and bracket so they can keep their smiles clean during the treatment.


Second, the Invisalign is removable, so you can opt to remove it when eating or brushing your teeth. The Invisalign—according to many patients—, is also much more comfortable to wear during your sleep.

How Invisalign Works

As we know, traditional braces use metal wires, brackets, and bands to fix the teeth’s alignment. Invisalign, on the other hand, uses clear, nearly invisible plastic aligners (clear braces). The Invisalign is custom-designed to fit your teeth perfectly according to your dental condition. Depending on the severity, you might need to switch between multiple Invisalign trays over the duration of your treatment until your teeth are shifted into their proper place.

In a typical Invisalign treatment, you will get a new set of clear trays that are custom-tailored to fit your current dental contours. Invisalign trays are designed to be removable and disposable after a week or two weeks of wear, so they are also much more affordable than your traditional metal braces.


Since the Invisalign trays are almost invisible, most people won’t notice that you are straightening your teeth – which is one of the reasons why people choose Invisalign trays over braces.


While there might be some discomfort upon initial wear, the aligners can be removed when you eat and should be removed when you floss or brush your teeth. Since the Invisalign is removable, it is also much easier to clean to maintain its hygiene.

The Benefits of Invisalign

Aesthetics

Not everyone likes the look of the traditional braces, even if nowadays they come in various attractive colors. The Invisalign, on the other hand, is clear and almost invisible, so people hardly notice them.

If you are among those who don’t want to let others know that you are fixing your teeth’s alignment at the moment, then the Invisalign might be the better option for you.

Removable

You can easily remove the Invisalign trays anytime you want. The traditional braces are notorious for being problematic when you are brushing your teeth, and it’s also much more difficult to clean the braces itself. The Invisalign, however, is removable so you don’t have to wear it during eating (to maintain hygiene), and it is also much easier to clean. Of course, you can also remove those clear braces when brushing or flossing your teeth.

Comfortable

Teeth alignment will always cause a certain amount of discomfort due to the nature of the treatment (your teeth are, after all, forced to move). However, the Invisalign offers a gentler pressure compared to traditional braces so it is much more comfortable to wear. Also, the Invisalign rubs smoothly against your gums and won’t cut your gums accidentally.

We Believe in Your Smile!

WE ARE OPEN!

Hello!

We are so excited to announce that the Royal College of Dental Surgeons has just given us the green light to begin seeing all non-essential and deferred treatment! Under the guidance of the RCDSO, all dentists in Ontario will now be able to re-open their practices for routine care and treatment. ​ Up until now, due to COVID19 pandemic restrictions, dentists have only been permitted to provide ​ emergency dental treatment. ​ This means that we have been unable to provide any other type of dental procedures since mid-March.

We can't wait to get back to work and begin seeing our patients again! We are spending this week implementing the changes mandated by the ministry of health and the dental association and will resume a normal schedule starting next week. You can rest assured that the safety of our community, our patients, and our team members are of utmost importance and we will have implemented additional safety measures and precautions. This is in addition to our already strict infection control protocols that were already in place.

Please be patient with us and give us some time to contact you; if you have had an appointment rescheduled, you are at the top of our list to call. We will be doing our best to ensure that everyone is re-booked as soon as possible. However, if you would like to get in sooner, or are having a concern, please feel free to give us a call.

What can I expect at my next dental appointment?

  • We will be ​pre-screening ​all patients prior to their appointments, and one more time upon arrival.
  • We are requesting that only the person who is booked for an appointment enter the office where ever possible (parents and caregivers will be permitted if necessary).
  • Upon arrival for your appointment, you will be asked to use hand sanitizer at the front entrance, and also to wear a mask until you are seated in the treatment room. (A mask will be provided if you do not have your own)
  • We will be staggering appointment times to limit the number of people in our offices to promote and encourage physical distancing.
  • There are hand hygiene stations located throughout the offices.
  • We have installed plexiglass barriers in the waiting room to protect our patients and team members.
