Invisalign® teeth straightening for teens and adults.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an orthodontic device that uses transparent, incremental aligners to adjust teeth as an alternative to traditional wire braces. These virtually invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners allow you to smile more during treatment as well as after.
Invisalign clear aligners are made with 3D computer imaging technology and have been proven effective in treating tooth alignment issues. However, not all patients are suitable for Invisalign treatment. Only a trained and licensed Invisalign provider can determine if you will be a suitable candidate. Smile Horizons Dental Arts is a Preferred Invisalign Provider in Mississauga; book a consultation with us to see if Invisalign is the right solution for you.
Invisalign treatment is clinically proven to be effective for a broad range of teeth straightening cases, from mild to complex. These are some common concerns doctors treat with Invisalign clear aligners:
- Gapped teeth
- Open Bite
- Overly Crowded
Why would I want Invisalign?
Not only are the aligners virtually invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are free from intrusive metals and wires, making them more comfortable to wear than traditional braces and which also means that less time needs to be spent coming in for adjustments.
How does Invisalign work?
You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to brush, floss, eat, and drink anything other than water. As you advance your aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, day by day, week by week — until they have straightened to their designated final positions.
We will see you about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages about 9 to 15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from person to person. Please ask us during your orthodontic consultation for more detailed explanations.
We will gladly answer any questions you may have.Ask Questions
