Invisalign: Orthodontic Treatments

Fix the positioning of your teeth at our Thornhill dental office with a better alternative to traditional braces!
Invisalign, as the name suggests, is a new invisible alignment method for your teeth! Functionally, it works the same as traditional braces, but aesthetically, it has the advantage of being a transparent acrylic resin that is practically invisible when worn. In most cases, Invisalign can solve the same problems that braces can: crooked teeth, gapped teeth, overbite, underbite, open bite, crossbite, and overcrowded teeth. 

PROCESS OF GETTING INVISALIGN

When you come in for your FREE consultation at Doncaster Dental Studio, our specialized dentists and orthodontists will perform a thorough dental examination to define the best path forward and qualify you for either Invisalign treatment or other solutions for teeth alignment. Once a personal Invisalign treatment plan is made for you, an impression of your teeth is sent to the dental laboratory where special software shapes your Invisalign aligners. Custom aligners fit the shape of your teeth perfectly and lead to healthy alignment.

Invisalign, using the same principle as traditional braces, exert controlled forces on your teeth to gradually move them to the desired position. Typically, every 4-6 weeks, a new Invisalign retainer is made to continue the alignment process until the teeth are fully aligned. Afterwards, fixed retainers keep the teeth in their healthy shape.

INVISALIGN VS. TRADITIONAL BRACES

  • Unlike braces, Invisalign can be taken off to eat, brush and floss but must be worn between 18-22 hours per day.
  • Invisalign treatments take about 1 year. Braces take 2-4 years.
  • Invisalign treatments are substantially cheaper than traditional braces.
  • Invisalign retainers are customized to apply controlled pressure gradually; therefore, they are more comfortable and less painful than braces.
