Get a straighter smile without metal braces when you choose Invisalign clear aligners from Scotia Square Dentistry in downtown Edmonton.
Invisalign is a series of clear, custom, removable aligners that can help you achieve a straighter smile.
With minimal disruptions to your daily routines, this orthodontic treatment is a discreet, convenient option for busy teens and adults.
Using 3D imaging technology, your dentist will create an Invisalign treatment plan specifically for you.
A series of clear, custom Invisalign aligners will then be made to fit your teeth during each stage of your treatment. The aligners are designed to move your teeth by small increments during your treatment.
You will wear each aligner for about two weeks and then replace it with the next one in the series. This process will continue until your teeth are in their new positions.
The best part? The aligners are discreet, smooth, and even removable for eating, brushing and flossing! Rest assured, they will fit comfortably into your daily life.
Your dentist will determine the duration of your Invisalign treatment based on your specific needs.
Factors that may determine the duration of your treatment include the misalignment of your teeth or jaw, the shape of your bite, and the amount of movement required to correct the problem.
Cost will depend on the severity of your case and duration of your treatment. For instance, the more severe the malocclusion, the more aligners you'll need and the more treatment will cost.
Ultimately, though, the cost of Invisalign is comparable to that of traditional orthodontic treatment (braces).
You will probably find that Invisalign fits very comfortably into your day-to-day life.
Because of the low profile appearance, many people won't even notice the aligners treatment, so the impacts on your social life are very minor.
You can also take your aligners out whenever you need to eat, or brush and floss your teeth. That means no dietary restrictions, and brushing and flossing as just as easy as ever.
Yes! Anyone who has healthy teeth and gums is a potential candidate for Invisalign.
More and more adults are deciding to undergo orthodontic treatment these days, in large part because lower profile options like Invisalign have become available.
Yes! Teens are candidates for Invisalign. In fact, Invisalign has created a line of aligners to meet the unique needs of teenagers.
Invisalign Teen aligners have compliance indicators on them (small blue dots that fade away after the aligners have been worn for two full weeks) to help teens stay on track with their treatment.
They also come with eruption tabs that provide space for second molars and prevent them from growing in crooked.
