Straighten your Smile
Invisalign® Orthodontic Treatment
Have you ever thought about straightening your teeth? Are you concerned about those crowded teeth when you smile? Teeth Straightening has certainly changed thanks to invisible braces and clear braces. These days dentists who offer the Invisalign® treatment can give patients a brand new smile in as little as six months with the average being 12 to 18 months. It offers a way to quickly and painlessly straighten your teeth without the unsightly wires and brackets of traditional braces.
Dr. Nick Seddon, General Dentist, from Ocean Front Dental offers Invisalign® services that can straighten teeth without braces.
What is Invisalign®?
The clear alternative to braces is a teeth straightening procedure that uses a series of almost clear invisible braces that are made to straighten your teeth. Dr. Nick Seddon, General Dentist, from Ocean Front Dental Vancouver will custom make the clear plastic aligners that will gradually move your teeth into the desired position to ultimately give you the smile you’ve always wanted.
How Does Invisalign® Work?
Impressions of your mouth are made by a special scanning technology called the iTero and a computer simulation is used to show the progression to your new smile. A series of clear, plastic aligners are used to shift your teeth into their final positions. Every week or two, depending on your custom made invisible braces treatment; you will swap out one pair of aligners for the next in the series. Your rotated, tipped, or crooked teeth move slowly into position because you are replacing one series for another every one or two weeks.
How Long Do You Wear Invisalign®?
Dr. Nick Seddon, General Dentist, from Ocean Front Dental explains that the clear plastic braces must be worn 22 hours each day, removing the invisible braces when eating, brushing, and flossing.
How Long Does Invisalign® Take?
According to Dr. Nick Seddon, General Dentist, the Invisalign® treatment time varies. The treatment depends on the patient, treatment time can range from 3 to 24 months but most cases take about 1 year, depending on the amount of movement necessary.
Is Invisalign® Painful?
There may be slight pain and discomfort when you first start wearing your clear braces, however, Invisalign® braces are much less painful than conventional wires and brackets, and just like any other orthodontic treatment, the pain and discomfort usually subside as you start getting used to your new clear plastic aligners. Slight pain is also a sign that your treatment is working. Invisalign® is barely noticeable from a talking distance.
