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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.See other procedures
