Ten things you should know about Invisalign invisible aligners in Scarborough

Dr. Amir Awadalla at Esquire Dental Center, Providing Removable Aligners

Are crooked teeth keeping you from displaying your best smile? Patients who are informed about the options available to them are more satisfied and also more empowered to handle their dental concerns quickly. Don’t just assume you must live with a crooked smile. Do your homework. With the various options available today, such as Invisalign removable aligners, Scarborough dentists are helping patients who had thought they were stuck in the smile they had.

There are several notable points to Invisalign, including:

  1. Aligners made from thin, clear plastic are barely noticeable. Invisalign is more discreet than tooth colored brackets and wires called “invisible braces.”
  2. Aligners are removable, which means patients do not have to modify their eating or oral hygiene habits. Aligners should be worn about 22 hours a day.
  3. Plastic aligners contain no metal and no BPA, making them not only comfortable but safe for oral tissues.
  4. Aligners move crooked teeth into place with gentle pressure. No adjustments needed.
  5. Invisalign can correct a bad bite such as the overbite in which upper teeth extent too far in front of lower teeth. Aligners can also address the crossbite and the underbite.
  6. Results are predictable thanks to the design process. Initial images and molds of the teeth are sent to the Invisalign lab, in which ClinCheck technology turns these models into a 3D image, and then into a 3D animation that shows every step of the straightening process through a series of aligners.
  7. Treatment is comfortable and also convenient due to the fact that aligners can be removed for meals, brushing and flossing, and also for special occasions for which you want an all-natural look.
  8. The capabilities and approved uses for Invisalign have expanded since their first approval in 1998, at which time this system was viewed more as cosmetic orthodontics than a bite-correcting system.
  9. The time frame in which treatment is completed with invisible aligners is about the same compared to traditional braces, though the gentle, consistent force is lighter.
  10. Invisalign is available from your family dentist at Esquire Dental Centres! With offices in Pickering, Scarborough, and North York, Invisalign is conveniently available to you.

We are happy to provide you with information about Invisalign and help you determine if this system is right for you. Contact one of our offices today.
