Considering Invisalign clear aligners to straighten your smile? Then you may be wondering what kind of results you can expect from Invisalign treatment. Our Canadian Clear Orthodontics Academy member dentists explain more about what you could expect from Invisalign.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign treatment consists of a series of custom made orthodontic aligners that work to gradually shift your teeth into their desired positions, without metal brackets and wires.
While undergoing Invisalign treatment you will switch to a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks until the desired amount of tooth movement has resulted. Every one of the clear aligners in your series is designed to make specific adjustments to the positioning of your teeth until a straighter smile is achieved.
Invisalign aligners are made from a thin clear plastic so they are almost completely invisible when worn. Hardly anyone will notice that you are straightening your teeth with Invisalign, and you will be able to see your smile evolve throughout your treatment.
Convenient Orthodontic Treatment
Unlike braces, Invisalign's clear aligners are also removable. Just take out your aligners and you can continue to enjoy all of your favourite foods! You don't need to give up the foods you love while straightening your teeth.
Your at-home oral hygiene routine will stay much the same as before your Invisalign treatment began. When it's time to brush and floss, pop your aligners out and store them safely in their handy case, then clean your teeth, rinse your aligners, and return them to your mouth, it's that easy!
Invisalign can be used to treat a number of dental health issues from gapped teeth to overcrowded teeth, and overbites to underbites.
To find out if Invisalign treatment is a good option for correcting your dental issue, contact a CCOA member dentist to book a no obligation consultation. Following a thorough assessment of your teeth and bite, if your dentist decides that you are a suitable candidate for Invisalign treatment you will be shown a digital representation of how Invisalign could transform your smile.
If you choose Invisalign as your orthodontic treatment, your dentist will then create a personalized treatment plan for your unique smile. Your treatment plan will chart a course for your Invisalign treatment including anticipated timelines. Because every smile is unique, treatment plans vary accordingly. To achieve the best possible results from your Invisalign treatment it's important to diligently follow the plan and the instructions set out by your dentist.
Your Invisalign Results
Depending on the nature and severity of your misalignment issue, there are a number of things you can expect once your Invisalign treatment is complete.
After treatment is complete, provided that you have followed the treatment plan prescribed by your dentist, you can expect to see a straighter and more even smile. Patients who are using Invisalign to correct bite issues can also expect to see a marked improvement in the function and appearance of their smile.
