Invisalign® is a revolutionary new treatment that forgoes the metal bracket and wires braces of old in favour of clear acrylic aligners that gently guide the patient’s teeth into place. Patients wear an average of 20 to 30 sets of aligners, over a period of 12-18 months to achieve their desired results, all without painful wire tightening appointments or food restrictions. We offer this incredible orthodontic treatment for our patients who long for a straight, beautiful smile.
Who can use Invisalign?
The advent of Invisalign® means that orthodontic treatment no longer benefits only teenagers. We treat many adults with Invisalign, including many who wore traditional metal braces as teens. Invisalign aligners can repair many dental problems, such as overbites, underbites, and crooked or rotated teeth.
The aligners work well for patients with wide spaces between their teeth, helping even when other teeth have shifted and moved into those spaces. Adults suffering from malocclusion, which occurs when the upper and lower teeth don’t fit well together, often find that Invisalign aligners work wonders for their smiles, preventing the speech problems, teeth grinding (bruxism), TMJ disorder, and frequent biting of the cheeks and tongue the malady often causes.
