4 things you didn't know about Invisalign

Are you dreaming of a straighter smile? Invisalign is a modern alternative to metal braces and has revolutionized how orthodontic treatments are performed. Say goodbye to uncomfortable wires and hello to a virtually invisible treatment.

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a customized set of clear, thermoplastic aligners. The aligners will gently guide your teeth to their new, desired positions. You will typically wear each set for around two weeks before switching to the next. Your dentist in NW Calgary will take 3D scans of your teeth to develop a personalized treatment plan and to create your aligners.

There are many reasons why patients opt to receive Invisalign treatment.

  1. They are meant to fit your lifestyle

    Invisalign aligners won’t change your lifestyle. They are made to easily adapt to your lifestyle. Since they are removable, you can continue to eat all of the foods you love without any restrictions. In addition, their discreet nature allows you to attend special events without any noticeable brackets and wires.

  2. They improve your oral health

    Straighter teeth are, without a doubt easier to clean. Your gums will also “fit” tighter around aligned teeth. This can lead to improvements in your periodontal health. The aligners are removable, so it will be easier to brush and floss your teeth during treatment as well. In addition, straighter teeth distribute the force among your teeth. This leads to a lower risk of abnormal wear and trauma.

  3. They allow you to be confident during and after treatment

    Since Invisalign aligners are clear and virtually invisible, no one will know you’re receiving treatment. They are not bulky or unsightly, so you can remain confident while straightening your teeth. Once you have completed your treatment, you will be left with a beautiful smile.

  4. They improve the functionality of your mouth

    Misaligned teeth can cause difficulties to properly speak, bite, and chew. Invisalign will reposition your teeth for optimal functionality.
