What is Invisalign?
Invisalign utilizes different removable, clear aligners that gradually move your teeth into a new position. Most people cannot even tell that someone is wearing their invisible aligners. We rely on 3D computer imaging technology to show you every stage of progress until you achieve your ideal smile. Kelowna Orthodontics is proud to be “Preferred Invisalign Providers” in our community. We have successfully helped hundreds of Okanagan dental patients realize their smile potential with this state-of-the-art technology that has revolutionized orthodontic therapy.
Why Is Invisalign A Preferred Choice?
The clear, removable plastic aligners are see-through and easy to use. Patients love the convenience of being able to enjoy their normal diet while undergoing treatment. It is also much easier to maintain excellent oral hygiene by brushing and flossing with the removable Invisalign trays. Being metal-free, the clear aligners are extremely comfortable and will not cause abrasions like traditional metal brackets. Many clients report that their oral mucosa, lips, and cheeks are unaffected from any cuts or common problems that regular braces may produce.
Without regular appointments needed to adjust the metal wires of traditional braces, there is often less time required for dental visits. Clients can witness their treatment plans from the start. They will have a complete picture of their straight smiles once the whole process is complete. Seeing your potential results from the beginning often inspires clients to take care of their teeth and follow their instructions for wearing their Invisalign up to 23 hours a day for maximum results.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Every set of Invisalign clear aligners are to be worn for approximately two weeks. They only come out during mealtimes, when drinking, and during brushing and flossing. Each week, your teeth will move slightly after you switch each aligner for the next one in your custom series. Over time, your teeth will be gradually guided into their new locations.
We monitor most clients every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. On average, Invisalign patients are in treatment for approximately 9 to 15 months. The amount of aligners ranges from 18 to 30. Call us today to book your free consultation. We are happy to discuss whether Invisalign or other orthodontic solutions will best suit your smile needs.
