We have Invisalign experience with countless patients and time after time some of our most remarkable smile transformations have come by way of this technique. During your Free consultation, Dr. Zachary Stein will first determine if you are a candidate discussing your smile goals and expectations.
There are many factors in deciding between Invisalign and braces, such as cost, appearance, time and more. A free in-person consultation can provide you with a complete plan of action and start you on your way towards achieving your smile goals.
As an alternative to traditional metal braces, Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements planned out for you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. Like all treatments, it's good to review the Treatable Cases as a first step. The company is continually making new advancements in our products and treatment process for even better clinical results.
Do you dream of a straighter smile but loathe the idea of wearing metal brackets and wires on your teeth for the next couple of years? Modern technology with Invisalign can allow you to achieve the straighter smile you desire without the hassle of traditional metal braces. The Invisalign method allows your dentist to take a completely customized approach to aligning your teeth perfectly.
How does this amazing system work?
First, your dentist at Markham Dental Centre will meet with you for a detailed in-person consultation to determine if Invisalign is the right choice for you. He will then begin to formulate a treatment plan based on the unique needs of your smile. You will wear a series of custom-fit aligners that gradually shift your teeth into their ideal locations using strategic and gentle movement. Every two weeks, you will swap one of your aligners out with a new one.
Most patients feel that these trays are comfortable to wear on a daily basis, but the best part is that they are almost undetectable. Only your closest friends and family members may know that you’re wearing your aligner. However, everyone will be able to see the end results as your smile becomes significantly straighter throughout the treatment plan.
You may feel like a straighter smile is only a cosmetic change, but it can actually have a huge impact on your overall oral health. Your gums can become sore and swollen with teeth that are overcrowded. When your teeth aren’t in the proper position, daily brushing and flossing can be difficult. This decline in proper oral hygiene can lead to more plaque buildup that causes cavities over time.
Your oral health is directly linked to your overall health. Taking a few steps to improve your smile and your oral health can actually lead to a lowered risk of heart disease, stroke, pneumonia, and diabetes.
Of course, there’s a significant advantage to these clear aligners over traditional braces as well. Beyond the aesthetic appeal of having an aligner that is virtually invisible, your braces won’t hinder your daily life. The aligners are easily removed so you can continue to eat all of your favorite foods and brush more thoroughly. You won’t have to worry about staining behind the metal brackets due to improper brushing, particularly among teenagers.
Dentists and orthodontists can use this system to treat many cases ranging from simple to more complex scenarios. A consultation will tell you if you could benefit from using Invisalign, but you may want to consider what part of your smile you would like to correct first. Invisalign is ideal for a number of very common dental issues including:
- Gaps between teeth
- Open bite
- Teeth crowding
Whether you want a straighter smile for your senior photos or just want a confidence boost, Invisalign is a simple way to ensure that your smile becomes as stunning as you always imagined. Contact Markham Dental Centre today to schedule your consultation and find out if Invisalign is right for you.
