Everybody dreams of a picture-perfect smile with all of the teeth in their proper alignment. In the past, patients had to endure months, even years, of wearing clunky metal appliances on their teeth to achieve that dream. Now, it’s much simpler.
The Invisalign®️ orthodontic treatment system straightens the teeth through a series of removable clear plastic aligner trays. The patient wears the trays for 20-22 hours each day, switching them out every other week, and most patients complete treatment within a year to 18 months.
Invisalign®️ is based in basic orthodontic principles. It straightens the teeth by applying forces that cause them to shift into proper positioning. Your Invisalign dentist will perform an initial evaluation and gather information that will be used to design Invisalign trays tailored to your unique situation.
Invisalign®️ can be used to correct a variety of problems with the teeth, including overbites, crossbites, and underbites, as well as severe crowding.
Invisalign®️ offers patients a host of advantages over traditional orthodontic treatment. The clear aligner trays are barely noticeable, so they have minimal impact on the appearance.
Additionally, it’s easier to keep the teeth and gums clean and healthy with Invisalign trays, which can be removed for brushing and flossing, as well as at mealtime.
In particular, Invisalign appeals to Surrey adults who need orthodontic treatment. Although teens are expected to sport a mouth full of metal brackets and wires can be a bit embarrassing for adults who delayed treatment or those who have to go through a second course of it because their teeth reverted back to their original positions.
