At Church Wellesley Dental Centre, our Toronto dentists offer Invisalign clear aligners as an orthodontic treatment option to help straighten your smile.
The goal of orthodontic treatment is the same for teenagers or adults—to straighten your teeth so they look and function better.
At Church Wellesley Dental Centre, we achieve this goal using Invisalign clear aligners which work by putting gentle pressure on your teeth to move them into the correct position over a period of months or years.
Invisalign clear aligners work by gradually straightening your smile over a period of time by using a series of customized, clear, plastic aligners that are adjusted as your treatment progresses.
Similar in appearance to custom whitening trays, Invisalign clear aligners are easy to insert.
Invisalign offers a convenience factor—they are removable for when you'd prefer no one know that you are straightening your teeth and can be removed to eat, drink, brush and floss!
Below are some of the most frequently asked questions about Invisalign clear aligners. Please don't hesitate to contact us with any further questions.
Invisalign is suitable for both adults and teenagers. Invisalign has created a line of aligners specifically made to suit the unique needs of teenagers.
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 your treatment will cost. In many cases, the cost of Invisalign is comparable to that of traditional orthodontic treatment (braces).
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.
Since Invisalign aligners require no adjustments or tightening – you just switch to a new set of aligners about every two weeks – your dentist will schedule brief appointments with you roughly every 4 to 6 weeks. During these appointments, your dentist will take the opportunity to review your progress and general oral health, answer your questions, and adjust your treatment as required.
The Invisalign aligners are made with USP Class VI medical-grade, high molecular weight polyurethane resins. They are BPA free.
