Teeth Straightening without Braces in Vancouver

July 10, 2017

Teeth Straightening without Braces in Vancouver doesn’t have to take 18 months to 2 years, and thanks to the Invisalign treatment available at Ocean Front Dental Vancouver, it won’t.

Teeth Straightening Procedures

According to Dr. Nick Seddon, General Dentist, there are two ways to straighten your teeth, conventional wires and brackets and the alternative to old school braces, custom-made clear plastic aligners. Dr. Seddon, General Dentist, explains that clear plastic aligners are one of the best ways to straighten your teeth without braces.

Conventional Wires and Brackets

Braces have been used for teeth straightening for decades, but can be downright uncomfortable, and take longer to work. Conventional wires and brackets need to be tightened and adjusted more often than the Invisalign treatment. With the Invisalign® treatment, you only need to visit Ocean Front Dental every six weeks to make sure that everything is going according to plan.

How to Straighten Teeth without Braces

The Invisalign® treatment is an amazing system that can straighten your teeth in as little as 6 months with the average being 12 to 18 months. If you are asking yourself how long braces take to straighten teeth, you may want to opt for the clear alternative, Invisalign®. Conventional wires and brackets can take up to two years. The invisible braces from Ocean Front Dental are soft and comfortable and are one of the best ways to straighten your teeth without braces.

The Invisalign® Treatment

If Dr. Nick Seddon, General Dentist, believes you are a good candidate for the Invisalign® treatment, an impression will be made so that your new clear plastic aligners fit comfortably. You will be given between 11 and 31 sets of invisible braces that you will wear 20 to 22 hours each day only removing when you eat, brush, and floss. Invisalign® braces are clear, comfortable, and so invisible that you and Ocean Front Dental will be the only ones who know you are straightening your teeth without braces.
