How effective is Invisalign for straightening the teeth?

Invisalign for straightening the teeth in Etobicoke ON Area
Teeth that are both straight and properly aligned have many benefits. They are attractive, ensuring that the teeth are right where they should be. These teeth are also easier to keep clean, especially when compared to patients with significant overcrowding. Proper bite alignment also ensures chewing and speaking efficiency. However, many patients avoid talking to their dentist about their desire for a straighter smile for fear of needing traditional metal braces. At Sherway Dentistry in Etobicoke, Ontario, we offer Invisalign as an alternative to enhance your smile.

What is Invisalign, and how is it used?

Invisalign is a popular orthodontic alternative available from Sherway Dentistry. This alignment solution uses a series of custom-made, clear plastic trays to fit over the patient's teeth. These trays are designed specifically to gradually move and adjust the position of the teeth until they are correctly aligned, without metal brackets or wires covering the smile. With Invisalign, patients can obtain a straighter smile in less time than traditional braces and with fewer visits to the dentist.

How effective is Invisalign?

Before starting Invisalign treatment, we ensure our patients are proper candidates and can achieve their desired results. The best candidates for Invisalign teeth straightening are teenagers and adults who can properly comply with treatment. Mild to moderate cases of misalignment and malocclusion are best suited for this treatment option. At the same time, those with more severe orthodontic needs may still be best served with traditional metal orthodontia. In such cases, our team can refer you to another provider in the Etobicoke, Ontario, community who can assist you further.

For Invisalign to be effective, patients must comply with their treatment. This means wearing the trays as directed by your dentist. The Invisalign trays are designed to be worn one at a time for one to two weeks each. At the end of two weeks, patients can clean and store the current tray and begin using the next one in their series. By following the directions closely and wearing the trays for at least 20 hours each day, patients will reach their desired results in the estimated time. Noncompliance with treatment may cause complications and delays, requiring additional fees to fix changes or recreate trays.

Is Invisalign invisible?

Invisalign is as clear and invisible as you can get with today's orthodontic options. When wearing the aligners, patients can smile, talk, and feel confident in their appearance even while wearing their trays. The trays are removed for drinking, eating, brushing, and flossing but cleaned and returned to fit over the dental arch.
