When patients come to Drs. Ashraf, Mark, and Amir Awadalla to ask about straightening their teeth, they are pleasantly surprised to learn about a non-traditional orthodontic solution known as Invisalign. Invisalign is a treatment that is similar in cost to conventional braces, but is a clear alternative in so many ways! Scarborough ON area patients who are interested in learning more about this method of treatment are encouraged to read on!
What is Invisalign?
Many men and women shy away from the idea of straightening their teeth with braces, because they do not want metal brackets and wires covering their smile for months to achieve the desired results. However, with advances in orthodontics and dentistry, patients can now enjoy an option called Invisalign. Invisalign is a method of straightening the teeth with the use of clear aligner trays that fit over the dental arch. These trays are made in a numbered series, and patients wear each tray for two weeks before moving to the next. This results in gradual realignment of the smile over several months.
What is the cost of Invisalign?
The cost of Invisalign varies, depending on how many trays a patient needs to improve his or her smile. The more severe the misalignment, the more trays will be needed to achieve the desired result. Our dentists will be able to assess the smile during an initial consultation appointment and evaluation, and help patients decide the approximate cost of treatment. Also, if patients do not comply with the use of their trays, it may cause delays and extra costs.
What can I expect from Invisalign?
Invisalign has several benefits that patients enjoy, including:
- Fast results
- Discreet treatment
- Comparable costs
- Easy to use
- Simple to clean
- Better oral health
Who is a candidate for Invisalign?
Patients with mild or moderate misalignment of the natural teeth may benefit from the use of Invisalign. Patients should not have veneers or crowns in place if they are considering Invisalign. The best way to determine candidacy is to visit the team of Esquire Dental Centres in Scarborough ON for an evaluation. During this time, our team of professionals can assess the smile and make suggestions regarding the best way to get the look you need. For some of our patients, treatments such as Invisalign may not be necessary. For example, patients with a simple gap between the teeth may want to consider treatment options such as porcelain veneers or the use of composite resin bonding to resolve.
