Braces can be distracting. Teens already feel enough social pressure to have perfectly straight teeth and should not have to worry about unsightly metal in their mouths. Likewise, adults can feel self-conscious about uneven teeth and want to fix it without looking like or feeling like a teen again, since it was probably hard enough the first time. Invisalign® is the revolutionary new treatment for fixing spacing and straightening teeth without the hassle and unsightly appearance of braces or metal retainers.
Invisalign® is see-through so that you do not have to worry about metal lines or brackets in your mouth. There are no ligaments holding your teeth together and bringing attention to your mouth that you do not want. For teens, there is the added benefit of not having to worry about what colors are on their teeth, those with colored braces in their teens can attest to having chosen the dark colors and regretting the fact that they had black, blue, or red on their teeth making it look like they were bleeding or had gaps in their teeth. Patients who use Invisalign® do not have to worry about what they are eating or drinking and can continue to chew their sugar-free gum without worrying about it getting stuck in their wires. Brushing and flossing remain possible for every part of the tooth using these clear, plastic retainers.
The Invisalign® process is quick and easy. Your Invisalign® certified dentist at Bramwest Family Dental in Brampton, ON will take a mold of your teeth. The mold will be used to make a personalized set of aligners that are replaced every few weeks. It works as a series so that your teeth are fixed gradually to the position which your dentist believes is best for you and which matches your facial anatomy and structure. Your dentist will have you make dental visits every half month to check that the program is working the way it should and to make adjustments if necessary.
A more simplified approach to traditional orthodontics, you should ask your dentist at Bramwest Family Dental about Invisalign®. We will be happy to explain the process in more detail and see if this is the right treatment for your uneven or unaligned teeth.
