A lot of us aren’t blessed with perfect, straight teeth and we used to have to rely on metal railroad tracks better known as braces to give us the smile we’ve always dreamed of. With Invisalign® straight teeth, increased confidence, and constant smiles are just months away! Get in touch with us today to start your journey with Invisalign Vancouver.
If you’ve been wondering, “what does Invisalign look like,” we’re here to tell you all you need to know.
Invisalign are transparent aligners that are custom-made to your teeth and use a forcing mechanism to gently straighten them without the discomfort of metal braces. They’re fitted over your teeth and help to gently realign them while remaining inconspicuous to people who don’t know you have them.
Because they’re less complicated to wear than traditional braces, the Invisalign treatment can be removed while you eat as long as they’re worn for at least 20 to 22 hours each day. Because the trays are replaced on a regular basis to allow for progressive treatment, your Vancouver dentist determines the order in which the teeth are straightened.
There are many benefits to straightening the teeth using Invisalign aligners.
Invisalign treatment may be used by both children and adults, and because it isn’t obvious, it makes it straightforward to carry out daily activities such as going to work or school.
It is also easily removable, so you may take greater care of your teeth since the trays can be removed, which isn’t possible with traditional braces. It’s a really accurate technique to straighten teeth because we can design the finest path to perfection for your individual mouth.
Invisalign treatment is a much more comfortable experience than traditional braces as orthodontic treatment. Invisalign treatment costs can be financed but they are generally more affordable than alternate orthodontic treatment as well. Invisalign is a great way to straighten teeth, give us a call to get started on your treatment plan today.
Make an appointment with our Vancouver Invisalign West Broadway team, and we’ll give you a free consultation to see whether the Invisalign treatment is right for you.
After the consultation, we can schedule your Invisalign treatment and create a timetable for your treatment plan that will last approximately a year. Based on your bite impression, Invisalign will then fabricate your first set of trays.
You will then receive a bit more coaching, and before you know it, you’ll be on your way to a lovely smile and self-assurance as a result of it.
You obtain a pair of Invisalign aligners to straighten your teeth one at a time. The Invisalign trays are made of a thermoplastic that can apply enough force to the teeth to cause them to line up. Every two weeks, a fresh tray will be placed in place of the old one, continuing the alignment procedure in identical ways as it was done at your consultation. They have gradually straightened to your ideal smile over the course of a year thanks to each new set of trays.
After you begin using your Invisalign aligner trays, your dentist will set up appointments to follow the treatment’s advancement throughout the year. When it comes to making sure everything is running smoothly, check in with your Invisalign dentist at least once every four to six weeks. They’ll check your oral health and make sure your teeth are moving as intended at that time. If necessary, changes will be made as the process continues. If additional visits are required, they will be scheduled during your visit.
Invisalign is an excellent method of cosmetic dentistry for closing gaps between teeth or helping misaligned teeth in general. The process might differ depending on the severity of the gap. It can be a fast and successful technique to close space while still maintaining your regular routine. These clear aligners and orthodontic alignment are done with comfortable orthodontic appliances, unlike braces.
If you think that you may have a gap that Invisalign clear aligners can help repair, schedule a consult and we will take a look to help come up with the treatment plan that will work best for you. Before you know it, you’ll be flashing that smile because your gap will be a thing of the past.
Before eating, you must remove your Invisalign tray. From there, you can have a relatively normal diet, as long as you avoid anything that could potentially push your teeth out of position and throw off your course of treatment.
You may think that chewing gum or eating soft foods without removing the trays shouldn’t damage them, but it is advised to always remove trays before eating. Be advised that the trays can gather debris, so if you drink with them in your mouth, be sure to brush and rinse regularly. Hot beverages should be avoided so as to not distort the trays.
You will be happy with your decision to have an Invisalign smile. Invisalign patients are generally very happy with their clear aligners and it’s such a non-invasive form of dental medicine.
We always warmly welcome new patients to our office and accept all major insurance companies. Give us a call at 604-738-7710 or fill out the form to request an appointment.
