Invisible dentistry is changing the way people approach braces. With the Invisalign innovation, you can get a clear smile without compromising your oral health.
Our dentists at the Northern Dental Centre find that the most common worry patients have is whether braces are going to change the way they look.
Unfortunately, they do and it’s why some patients who need them have avoided them in the past. But now we’re happy to offer the Invisalign clear smile braces product as part of our range of services.
Here’s what you need to know about it.
How Invisalign Works for You
These products are revolutionary because they act in the same way as braces without changing your smile. The process is nearly exactly the same too.
A mold of your teeth is taken so that an external lab can create the aligners that will be fitted into your mouth. Every aligner is different, which is why we have to take the impression. They’re crafted to your mouth’s precise specifications.
The aligners then arrive at our dental lab, where we will show you how to fit them.
Why Invisalign is so Powerful
These Invisalign braces are so powerful because they give you a clear smile through a special thermoplastic material. Only if you examine the wearer up close can you detect that they’re there at all.
They’re a better option for patients who’re self-conscious about changing their look through having braces installed.
These aligners are nearly indestructible, unlike normal braces, so you don’t have to worry about any malfunctions. They’re invisible and indestructible, which makes them superior to other oral alignment options.
What are the Advantages of Using Invisalign?
We go out of our way to explain to our patients at the Northern Dental Centre what the benefits are of using this oral alignment option.
You don’t have to wear them all the time. For two hours every day, you can take them off without ruining the progress of your teeth straightening.
There’s also no evidence to show that you’re having your teeth straightened in the first place. Your look will be exactly the same throughout the entire process.
Plus there are no special care requirements for taking care of Invisalign. All you have to do is rinse it with warm water every time you take it out. Each individual straightener is worn for around two weeks before you will need to return to our dental clinic for another one.
Finally, they provide better protection for your teeth because they’re easy to clean and the risk of additional teeth staining is minimal.
The metal braces, on the other hand, are difficult to clean and food can easily get caught inside. This could compromise your oral healthcare and make it more difficult to maintain a healthy mouth.
