Invisalign.. Great Option for Braces..

Posted by kelvin ray on July 7th, 2016

For many many years, traditional braces made from metal were the main choice for orthodontic treatment. Most often because it was the only option available to patients needing their teeth straightened in Toronto. Finally, there are now other options for braces and teeth straightening than there were in the past.

Dr. Mark Nalbandian at Wired Orthodontics knows that orthodontic treatment with Invisalign is now more popular than any other orthodontic treatment option currently available in Toronto. So before you choose Invisalign for yourself or your child, Wired Orthodontics recommends that you learn a little more about Invisalign.

  • What is Invisalign? Invisalign is a very popular Orthodontic appliance used to get a straight and healthy smile. Invisalign uses custom-made aligners to gradually shift teeth. Depending on each case, every one, two, or three weeks, a new aligner is fitted to the patient and the process recurs for the rest of treatment.
  • What makes Invisalign different from traditional metal braces? The difference between the two is that Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible. The Invisalign trays are clear and fit right over the teeth, so people won’t even know that you are actually straightening your teeth. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign has no metal brackets or wires, making it more comfortable and less painful. Invisalign aligners are also removable and they can be taken out of your mouth when you eat and brush and floss your teeth.
  • Does Invisalign hurt? Invisalign clear aligners exert a gentle pressure to move teeth within the mouth. Depending on each patient, a slight discomfort may be experienced when a new Invisalign tray aligner is fitted. The smooth thermoplastic surface of Invisalign is less likely to cause irritation in the wearer’s mouth than traditional braces.
  • How long does Invisalign treatment take? Every case is different, so the length of your treatment time depends how severe your case is. After your initial consultation. The Orthodontists at Wired Orthodontics will be able to give you an estimate of how long you will have your aligners on. To maximize your results and to ensure a faster treatment, it is highly recommended to follow all of the directions you receive from the team at Wired Orthodontics.
  • Will Invisalign affect my day to day activities? Wearing Invisalign will not affect your day-to-day activities at all. Sure, you will probably want to avoid foods or drinks that may stain your teeth and aligners, and you may find that you have to brush and floss more to keep clean, but no worries you will still be able to play sports, have fun, and live your life while wearing Invisalign.
