Straighten Your Teeth Without Braces
Are you looking to straighten your teeth without the inconvenience, discomfort, and hassle of traditional metal braces?
Invisalign might be the alternative solution for you. Invisalign straightens your teeth with a series of clear, customised, and removable aligners, which are virtually invisible when you talk or smile around your friends. Plus, because these aligners are removable, there are no restrictions on what you can eat.
Discover how Invisalign can transform your smile discreetly and comfortably. Book your complimentary consultation with us today.
The Benefits of Invisalign
Enjoy the convenience of:
- Comfortable aligners that are uniquely designed for your smile
- Freedom to go throughout the day without others knowing you wear braces
- Eat all of your favourite foods anytime you want
- Easier home care – just brush and floss as normal
Because straightening teeth sometimes takes months or years to complete, there are better options than wearing metal brackets on your teeth.
That’s why you should ask an authorised Invisalign dentist if the solution is right for you.
How Long Does Invisalign Treatment Take?
Invisalign treatment typically takes between 12 to 18 months to complete. However, the treatment length can vary depending on several factors, such as the complexity of your case and how often you wear your aligners. Your orthodontist will be able to give you a reasonable estimate of your treatment length based on your specific requirements.
Here are five primary factors that can affect the length of Invisalign treatment:
The most significant factor that affects treatment duration is the complexity of your orthodontic issues. If you only have minor alignment issues, such as slight overcrowding or minor spacing, your treatment length may be as little as six months. On the other hand, if you have more significant problems like severe crowding or misalignment, it may take longer to achieve optimal results.
Patient consistency is crucial to the success of Invisalign treatment. Patients must wear their aligners for at least 20-22 hours daily to ensure treatment progresses as planned.
While Invisalign is suitable for both teenagers and adults, adult patients usually experience longer treatment times on average. This is because adult teeth are more firmly set in their positions, making them slightly less responsive to orthodontic treatment.
The experience and skill of the orthodontist overseeing your treatment can greatly influence how efficiently they plan and execute your Invisalign treatment. An experienced provider will be better equipped to help you achieve your desired goals quicker.
Our experienced team at Bloor West Smiles has been helping patients improve their smiles for over 25 years. You can rest assured that you’re expert hands when you visit us for all your orthodontic and dental needs.
What Types of Dental Issues Can Invisalign Correct?
Invisalign is a versatile orthodontic treatment that can effectively correct a wide range of dental issues.
If you’re looking for a near-invisible and hassle-free alternative to conventional metal braces for any of the following dental issues, the Invisalign system may be a good choice for you.
An overbite occurs when the upper front teeth overlap the lower front teeth excessively. Depending on the severity of the overbite, Invisalign may be a viable treatment option.
The aligners can help gradually move the upper teeth back, and the lower teeth forward to reduce the overbite and achieve a more balanced bite.
An underbite is when the lower set of teeth extend and stick out in front of the upper front teeth when biting. Again, depending on the severity of the underbite, Invisalign may be a viable treatment option.
Throughout treatment, the aligners will gradually move the lower teeth backward and the upper teeth forward to align the bite correctly.
A crossbite occurs when some of the upper teeth sit inside the lower teeth when the jaws are closed. Invisalign can be used to reposition the misaligned teeth to correct the crossbite.
An open bite is when there is a gap between the upper and lower front teeth when the jaws are closed. Invisalign can close this gap by gently moving the teeth back into alignment, allowing them to meet when biting or chewing.
Crowded teeth are a common condition that occurs when there isn’t enough space in the jaw for teeth to fit properly. Invisalign can treat most types of crowded teeth by creating space in the mouth and gradually pushing the teeth into proper alignment.
What is the Right Age for Getting Invisalign?
Invisalign can be suitable for a wide range of ages, from teenagers to adults. There isn’t a set age limit for getting Invisalign because its effectiveness depends more on the individual’s orthodontic needs and readiness for treatment.
Ultimately, deciding when to start Invisalign should be made after consultation with an experienced orthodontist or dentist. They will evaluate your oral health and the nature of your orthodontic issues to ensure that Invisalign is an appropriate solution for you, regardless of age.
Things To Be Aware Of Before Getting Invisalign Treatment
Before starting Invisalign treatment, here are some important things to be aware of to ensure a successful and positive experience.
Aligners are Custom Made
Custom-made aligners are a core component of Invisalign treatment. Our orthodontists will take digital impressions of your teeth using advanced 3D scanning technology and create a series of custom aligners you’ll wear throughout your treatment.
Maintaining Oral Hygiene is Crucial During Treatment
Proper oral hygiene is key to keeping oral health problems at bay during Invisalign treatment. You’ll need to remove your aligners before eating and drinking and brush and floss your teeth before reinserting them to prevent plaque buildup and cavities.
You’ll likely brush more than usual, so it’s best to have a separate toothbrush at home, at work, and on the go.
You’ll Likely Experience Some Discomfort
In the initial days of wearing a new Invisalign aligner, you may experience some discomfort and changes in speech. However, this will typically improve as you get used to the aligners.
