Invisalign Invisible Braces St. Albert - Dentist in St. Albert

Misalignment of teeth is a concerning issue for a large number of people. It can plant seeds of embarrassment and social discomfort for many people with asymmetrical teeth, which can lead to bad habits such as hiding one's teeth while smiling and can also bring on feelings of anxiety in social settings. Now there is an alternative to hiding your smile, since you can perfect their alignment using invisalign invisible braces. 

 

What is Invisalign?

Unlike conventional metal braces, Invisalign clear aligners are free of wires and brackets. Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners that gradually shift your teeth into the desired alignment. It uses clear plastic moulds that are made from a digital patented thermoplastic material referred to as “SmartTrack.” They incrementally move your teeth as you change your moulds every 3 to 6 months of use. 

 

What happens during an Invisalign appointment?

During your Invisalign appointment, our cosmetic dentists in St. Albert will perform a consultation first to see if Invisalign is best suited for your dental needs. They’ll take x-rays and then book you in for a teeth cleaning appointment first before doing any work as it will help diagnose if you have any underlying problems. Also, it will help our dentists get an accurate fitting of your teeth as there won’t be any possible plaques that can cause your moulds looser. Next, our dentist, Dr. Gill will begin taking your impressions and scanning your teeth using “SmartTrack”. He’ll send it out to Invisalign, so they can create your moulds. Once we receive them, you’ll start your Invisalign treatment. Our dentists will place your top and bottom moulds and you will need to come back every month to get them changed. 

 

What are 5 benefits of Invisalign?

Aside from the clear aesthetics of Invisalign, these invisible braces won’t give you much hassles unlike traditional braces. Here are 5 benefits that won’t make you second guess getting Invisalign: 

  • They won’t give you canker sores because you won’t have metal brackets nor wires that will stick out and cut your gums. 
  • By aligning your teeth to its right and proper alignment, Invisalign can help reduce your risk of gum disease. Overcrowded and misaligned teeth are a lot harder to clean, which causes plaque, tartar and bacteria to build up. This in turn can result in cavities, decay and gum disease. 
  • Invisalign will not only fix your bite, but will also boost your confidence by giving you straighter teeth. 
  • They’re comfortable, removable and convenient. 
  • When you have Invisalign, you don’t need to worry about food restrictions like how you would with traditional braces.
