The impact metal braces can have on appearance in social and professional situations resulted in many adults who desire a straight smile to forgo orthodontic therapy. Ease of use, comfortable as well as being virtually invisible has made Invisalign® a welcomed orthodontic treatment with adults who wish to straighten their smile.
Invisalign® is a series of custom-made clear aligners created from advanced 3-D computer imaging software. This system enables you to view your entire procedure progression and expected end result on screen prior to beginning any treatment.
You wear your aligners for approximately 2 weeks before exchanging them with the next in the series. Unlike fixed braces Invisalign® aligners can be removed so you can enjoy all your favourite foods and brush and floss normally without having to worry about cleaning around brackets and wires.
To ensure your treatment is progressing as planned, you will need to visit Forest Lake Dental around every 6 weeks. Depending on the position of your teeth, you may need to continue wearing your Invisalign® aligners for 9 – 15 months. Following your assessment appointment, our Orthodontist will be able to give you a more accurate treatment timeframe.
For teenagers who require orthodontic treatment, Invisalign® is a preferred alternative to metal braces. Following an assessment appointment, our Orthodontist can advise if Invisalign® is suitable for your child or can be used in conjunction with fixed braces.
To discover if Invisalign® is right for you, schedule a consultation appointment with the Forest Lake Dental team.
