Invisalign (Braces)

Adults and many teens with misaligned teeth would prefer to correct their smiles without metal braces. Invisalign in Newmarket is an excellent alternative, especially since it can be up to 50 per cent faster. When you use clear aligners and custom-fit to your teeth, no one will even realize you are using braces, and you can gain the smile you have always wanted.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Aligners gently shift the position of your teeth, moving them in any direction necessary. They send the right amount of pressure to each tooth at the right time. You will probably receive a new set of aligners weekly for continuous treatment.

Who Can Receive Invisalign Treatment?

Aligners can correct many teeth problems, including:

  • Gaps between teeth.
  • Overbite is when the upper teeth extend past the lower teeth.
  • An underbite is when the lower teeth jut out past the upper teeth.
  • Open bite is when the upper and lower teeth are unable to meet.
  • Teeth crowding.
  • A misalignment of the upper and lower jaw causes Crossbite.

The Invisalign Procedure

The process for receiving Invisalign starts with a consultation with your dentist, who will assess your suitability for the treatment. If aligners work for you, your dentist will take impressions of your teeth and use these to create a custom treatment plan. It will determine how your teeth need to move each week and how long the treatment will last.

You will return to the clinic when your aligners are ready. Usually, your dentist will recommend you wear them for at least 20 to 22 hours per day, removing them just to eat and brush your teeth. You must return for regular appointments with our dentist near you to check your progress every six weeks.
