Invisalign is a new invisible alignment method for your teeth! Functionally, it works the same as traditional braces, but aesthetically, it has the advantage of being a transparent acrylic resin that is practically invisible when worn. In most cases, Invisalign can solve the same problems that braces can: crooked teeth, gapped teeth, overbite, underbite, open bite, crossbite, and overcrowded teeth.
When you come in for your consultation at Bellesmere Dental, our Scarborough dentists and orthodontists will perform a thorough dental examination to define the best path forward and qualify you for either Invisalign treatment or other solutions for teeth alignment. Once a personal Invisalign treatment plan is made for you, an impression of your teeth is sent to the dental laboratory where special software shapes your Invisalign aligners. Custom aligners fit the shape of your teeth perfectly and lead to healthy alignment.
Invisalign, using the same principle as traditional braces, exerts controlled forces on your teeth to gradually move them to the desired position. Typically, every 4-6 weeks, a new Invisalign retainer is made to continue the alignment process until the teeth are fully aligned. Afterward, fixed retainers keep the teeth in their healthy shape.
Here are a few key differences between Invisalign braces and traditional braces:
