Our orthodontists and their team team offer patients in Bedford/ Sackville and area, Invisalign, a treatment option that uses clear, removable aligners. It’s never too late to achieve the healthy, beautiful smile you’ve always dreamed of, and with Invisalign, you can, with these subtle aligners.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign is used as an alternative to traditional braces, and is custom designed to help guide teeth into proper position. Just like braces, Invisalign uses gradual force with clear aligners to control tooth movement, but without any metal wires or brackets. The aligners are made with a strong plastic material that has been fabricated to fit your mouth. As treatment progresses you switch aligners. Each aligner is a little different, so your teeth move a little more with every change.
Aligners are worn for at least 20 hours each day, and you’ll receive a new aligner every two weeks. The length of your treatment depends on the severity of your case, and treatment can take anywhere from six months to two years.
Invisalign is a great alternative for patients who want a straighter smile but do not want to wear metal braces, or for patients who have had treatment in the past and want to make minor corrections to their smile. There are several advantages to orthodontic treatment with Invisalign.
Clear aligners are easier to keep clean, making it easier to maintain the health of your teeth and gums. If you are interested in Invisalign and would like to know the treatment options that could help straighten your smile, schedule a free consultation with The Brace Space.
