Invisalign is a new alternative to metal braces. It is an invisible method for straightening your teeth without the hassle and look of braces. Invisalign was made public in May of 2000, and consists of a series of snap-on, custom fitted aligners. These removable mouth trays work by applying a controlled amount of force to your teeth. Within months, this force causes your teeth to shift and move into their proper alignment.
At Focus on Smiles of Edmonton, Alberta, we know the importance of a dazzling smile and are dedicated to achieving the smile of your dreams.
How the Aligners Work
These clear, medical-grade plastic aligners should be switched every two weeks as your teeth shift into place. Each set of aligners should be worn at all times, and only removed to eat, brush and floss.
The number one benefit of Invisalign is that it is clear, so no one will be able to tell that you are wearing them. This means that Invisalign will fit your lifestyle and your daily interactions with others. Because it is removable, you can eat and drink what you would like during treatment with the ability to brush and floss accurately to prevent gum disease.
Because it does not contain metal braces or wires, Invisalign will not cause irritation or pain. Since you will not need bracket adjustments, you will spend less time in the dental chair.
