Comfortable Solutions with Orthodontic Dentistry
Common orthodontic dentistry in Sherwood Park consists of traditional metal braces that are uncomfortable, don’t allow for proper dental hygiene, can cause bleeding and discomfort on your cheeks and gums, and limit your diet.
Invisalign® doesn’t use metal wires. Instead it moves teeth with a series of customized aligners made of a smooth, clear plastic. The process takes several months to straighten your teeth, but Invisalign® offers many benefits including a nearly invisible dental appliance. These aligners are made of comfortable plastic that is much less likely to irritate your gums and cheeks than traditional braces. They are also easy to remove while you eat or drink, allowing you to eat anything you want without restrictions. Invisalign® also allows you to maintain your oral hygiene because you can remove your aligners to brush and floss your teeth. Choosing the right orthodontic dentistry in Sherwood Park will help you feel comfortable and confident while straightening your teeth.
How Does Invisalign® Work?
Invisalign® straightens your teeth using a series of custom-made aligners that gradually move your teeth into place. These aligners are able to treat many different types of dental misalignment including:
- Gapped teeth
- Open bite
- Overly crowded
Your dentist will discuss the process for creating and fitting you with Invisalign® braces. At your consultation your dentist will take X-rays of your teeth that will be used to create moulds. These moulds will then be used to design your personal set of custom aligners. These aligners will fit your teeth and should be worn 20-22 hours a day, only excluding meals. Every few weeks you will switch to a new aligner to help your teeth shift, and along the way you should schedule routine visits with your dentist (every 4 to 6 weeks) to monitor your treatment.
After your last aligner set has been used, your teeth will be straighter than ever before! Benefits of straighter teeth and a properly aligned jaw are both cosmetic and health related. Not only will you be able to smile with more confidence than ever before, you will be at far less risk for periodontal and jawbone problems.
