A Subtle Treatment Option to Solve Your Dental Issues

Adults often shun orthodontic dental treatments to better align their teeth. They assume they will need metal braces that stand out and are visible to others.

That’s where Invisalign comes in. For patients who want to keep their orthodontic treatments quiet, Invisalign offers a subtle treatment option that is discreet and aesthetically pleasing.

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses innovative, custom-designed clear aligners that, over time, move your teeth into the necessary positions. The treatment is highly effective, offering a clear alternative to traditional orthodontic treatments like metal braces.

Invisalign aligners should be worn most of the day, but they are removable when you need to eat, floss, and brush your teeth.

How Does It Work?

Invisalign treatments move and straighten teeth through the application of a controlled force using clear aligners, made for the dental needs of the wearer.

Using cutting-edge 3D computer-generated imagery, Invisalign technology maps out a treatment plan taking the current and desired positioning of teeth into account. Because Invisalign is designed to only move specific teeth with each set of aligners, you will have your Invisalign updated and replaced every few weeks. This procedure continues until the desired look is achieved.

How Much Does Invisalign Cost?

Several factors determine the cost of Invisalign treatments. You will receive an estimate for your specific treatment upon consultation with an orthodontist. Determining factors may include:

  • Duration of treatment
  • Age of patient
  • The severity of dental issues

Typically, in Canada, the cost of Invisalign ranges from $2,000 to $8,000. The cost may be offset for some people with dental insurance.

Benefits Of Invisalign: Why Should You Choose Invisalign?

Invisalign is a known, recognized brand in orthodontics that has been proven to offer fast and accurate results. What are the benefits of Invisalign? Here are some of the many reasons you should choose an Invisalign treatment.

Invisalign Can Solve A Variety Of Alignment Issues

Invisalign doesn’t only fix minor aesthetic dental issues. The treatments solve numerous dental alignment problems that can lead to future pain, tooth damage, and gum irritation. Among the issues that can be fixed with Invisalign are:

  • Gaps between teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Crowded teeth
  • Tooth shape
  • Tooth movement

Low Maintenance

Unlike metal braces, which require diligent care to keep them clean, Invisalign’s clear aligners need only minimal maintenance. However, because they are worn for up to 22 hours a day, they do require some cleaning.

Another downside to metal braces is the necessity of avoiding certain foods to ensure that you do not damage or break the brackets and wires in your mouth. Food can also get stuck in between braces or underneath them.

With Invisalign, there is no reason to limit any food consumption, because they are removable. Take out your aligners before you eat, rinse your mouth out, then replace them.

Clean your aligners with a soft toothbrush and a small amount of toothpaste. The outside of the aligner can be cleaned while in your mouth and the inside cleaned upon removal.

Comfort and Convenience

A top reason that adults should choose Invisalign treatment is its comfort and convenience.

Metal braces often scratch your lips, tongue, and cheeks, and require a painful tightening every month. With an Invisalign aligner, the treatment is more comfortable. The aligners themselves are made of thin plastic, so wearing them for 22 hours a day is not an issue.

The aligners are custom-made, with no extra material that scratches or rubs on the delicate tissues of your mouth. With the change of aligners every two weeks, the teeth gradually move into position without drastic tightening.

With Invisalign treatments, you require less time in the dentist’s office than with traditional braces. Visits will be shorter and total treatment time will also be shorter, unless you have a complex dental situation.

They Are Invisible!

Invisalign aligners are, well, invisible! Metal braces are impossible to hide. Even when you get braces with clear brackets, it is still noticeable.

One in four orthodontic patients are adults, so the procedure is more common than you think. One thing that deters adults from getting braces or other orthodontics is that they don’t wish to draw attention to their mouths. Discretion is important in adult orthodontics, making the Invisalign treatment a perfect option.

With Invisalign, people won’t be able to tell that you are wearing them unless they are in very close proximity. You can present yourself with confidence, without worrying about people staring at your mouth.

Most Invisalign patients live normal home and work lives, without drawing attention to the fact that they are getting orthodontic treatment.
