Invisalign Invisible Braces

Invisalign Invisible braces first came on the Canadian market 15 years ago. Carlton Dental is a proud certified prouder of Invisalign and has helped countless patients to achieve a straighter more attractive smile. Invisalign allows you achieve a straighter smile without having to have metal braces bonded to your teeth. Many people may not want to undergo orthodontic treatment due to the fact that they have to wear braces that can’t be removed. They may feel self-conscious or may not want to deal with the hassles of eating or brushing with braces. Invisalign avoids these hassles by allowing you wear clear plastic aligners that can be removed at any time!

How Invisalign Works

Instead of having braces bonded to your teeth, you will wear clear removable aligners, so you can eat, brush, and floss without them in getting in the way. You will be required to wear each set of aligners for 2 weeks which gradually shifts your teeth into proper position. Every 6 weeks you will have to come into our office to pick up new aligners until your teeth are straight.

The number of aligners that you will have to wear will depend on the complexity of your case. This includes how crooked your teeth are, the size of the gaps, and if you have bite problems. As a result, your treatment can be as short as 3 months or as long as 2 years.

Following your treatment, you will have to wear a custom-made retainer so that your teeth maintain their new positions. Without a retainer, your teeth will gradually shift back to their original positions which would be the last thing that you want. At first, you will have to wear your retainers all day and night but gradually you will be able to reduce the time you will have to wear them.
