Invisalign Sherwood Park
It is common for straight teeth to be desirable, but the natural growth of our teeth is not typically perfectly aligned. Aside from just cosmetic appearance, straighter teeth can also assist with dental hygiene and cause fewer long-term issues.
The classic approach to teeth alignment was to use braces. However, not everyone may like the appearance, and for that, newer teeth straightening technologies have been developed that are practically transparent, very comfortable, and easy to maintain. Invisalign is one of the preferred alternatives to braces that address teeth misalignment and bite problems while retaining a natural appearance. Connect with our Sherwood Park location to learn more about the process.
Benefits of Invisalign
Think of Invisalign as clear, comfortable and removable molds that are worn over your teeth. Unlike braces, Invisalign can be removed easily, and as needed. It is an effective treatment for a range of issues, from mild cases of crooked teeth, teeth crowding and even bite problems.
Ask us about Invisalign
Unlike braces, Invisalign is free of metal or any abrasive parts. Not only do they fit comfortably, but they also feel more natural while in your mouth.
Easy Removal and Maintenance
Invisalign comes out in seconds, allowing you to easily brush your teeth and floss. To clean your aligners, they are cleaned simply by being brushed and rinsed through room temperature.
Doesn’t Interrupt Your Lifestyle
The benefit of being able to remove your aligners and place them in a case while eating means you can pretty much eat anything without the worry of food getting stuck - as they might if you were to use braces. Feel confident at work or while playing your favourite sports.
Bennett Dental is an Invisalign Clinic
For a local dentistry that provides Invisalign, Sherwood Park has Bennett Dental which will guide you through the necessary steps so you can achieve your desired teeth appearance.
We perform the initial consultation to determine if you are good candidate for Invisalign treatment.
Once accepted, and with all your questions answered, we can begin the procedure. It starts with X-rays, photos and a complete set of accurate teeth impressions that are used to create a 3D image.
The dentist can use this information to evaluate the complexity of the procedure along with the gap between the current teeth position and the desired outcome. Depending on this, a different amount of trays will be prepared. Invisalign is a lengthy process, that can take up to a year or longer in which you will progress through various pre-planned stages of treatment.
At each stage, you will have a custom set of trays that has been carefully manufactured from a computer CAD 3D model. Each stage typically spans a two-week period and your teeth will gradually progress to the target result. The BPA-free plastic used is surprisingly smooth and comfortable, with just the right amount of rigidity to perform its function.
How long do I have to wear Invisalign?
In order for Invisalign to work, it must be worn at least 20-22 hours of a day. However, you can easily remove them for eating, brushing and flossing. You will need to be strict with your dental hygiene routine throughout the procedure and we will have your visit us every 6 weeks to ensure the process is going according to plan.
