An invisible solution to a visible problem

Having straighter teeth is a common goal for many people. Although aligning your teeth is not only for cosmetic purposes it can also allow you to have a healthier smile as it helps resolve splintered teeth, gum disease and cavities. These issues can be better prevented through the straightening of your teeth using either traditional metal braces or an Invisalign® system and simultaneously allow you to have straighter teeth.

Invisalign® is an invisible alternative to the wire braces used to straighten your teeth. It works by utilizing a series of virtually invisible and removable aligners. The aligners are customized to fit your teeth and will slowly straighten your teeth.

To determine whether you are a suitable candidate for Invisalign®, the dentist will perform a thorough orthodontic examination of your teeth and gums. This will involve identifying cavities, undiagnosed periodontal disease and any other underlying oral health issues. It is important to address any underlying issues before proceeding with the orthodontic treatment to achieve the best results.

After this complete diagnosis, your teeth will be scanned and the digital scan will be sent directly to Invisalign® for fabrication of your personalized fitting trays. These trays will straighten your teeth over the course of few months, depending on the complexity of your case.

Our patients have consistently informed us that they are seeking out more subtle and practical alternatives to the traditional metal and ceramic braces. Invisalign® trays are removable, clear and not bulky. This means that you can remove them during that crucial job interview or even leave them on because they will be barely visible.

Invisalign® is easy to maintain, since toothbrushing and flossing can be continued as normal. No more special floss or tricky brushing practices. Therefore, we find that our patients maintain higher short-term and long-term dental hygiene when using Invisalign®.

Invisalign® and other orthodontic procedures are not simply for cosmetic and aesthetic purposes. Instead, a professionally designed orthodontic treatment plan will help improve your dental health by reducing your chances of oral diseases and emergencies.

Misaligned, crooked and crowded teeth often lead to discomfort and difficulty in cleaning. This will increase your susceptibility to gingivitis, periodontitis (gum disease) and to other dental problems. On the other hand, gaps between your teeth can increase your chances of tooth decay. Teeth malocclusion can also increase your chances of experiencing dental emergencies, such as cracked teeth. The best option is often to straighten your teeth and prevent such long-term complications.
