Orthodontic treatment has evolved so much in the past few decades that now people of from age six to well past sixty have ways to improve the look and the health of their smile. One of the most significant developments in the area of orthodontics has been invisible braces. More specifically, Invisalign treatment has made it possible for patients from Pickering and other areas to face teeth straightening with a smile on their face.
Invisalign is a treatment option that has taken off and not slowed down. This method of straightening teeth is based on proven orthodontic practices, but uses a different vehicle. Rather than sticking bulky brackets onto teeth for a year or more, Invisalign straightens teeth with removal plastic aligner trays.
The fit of these trays is such that teeth will receive the gentle pressure they need to loosen the hold of the ligament in the jaw, facilitating comfortable movement. The design of these trays and the material from which they are made allow patients to straighten their teeth without losing one ounce of confidence in their smile.
Beyond Beautiful Results
Since the development of Invisalign, this system has been sought by men and women of all ages who wish to improve the look of their smile by straightening crooked teeth. As the technology behind Invisalign has advanced, this system has also become a tool for correcting common orthodontic concerns, including:
- Gaps between teeth, which may result from overgrowth of the jawbone
- Overcrowding of teeth due to insufficient space in the jaw during the growth of permanent teeth
- Overbite, or overjetting of teeth, where the upper arch protrudes out excessively
- Underbite, which occurs when the lower arch protrudes forward more so than the upper arch
- Crossbite, a condition in which misalignment has affected both arches
Careful Planning Leads To Excellent Results
One of the best things about the Invisalign system is the predictability we gain through careful planning. The initial step of treatment include data gathering, of which details are sent to the laboratory dedicated to the fabrication of Invisalign aligners. In the lab, specialized software is used to turn provided information into a detailed video which shows us the expected movements one step at a time. Through this virtual simulation, our patients are able to catch a peek of what their new and improved smile will look like before ever inserting their first aligner.
