Orthodontic treatment has never been so efficient, effective and affordable. This branch of dentistry has seen dramatic improvements over the last decade in technology, methods and case suitability – thanks to the ongoing demand from patients to have a stunning smile and healthy bite.
Is Invisalign Right for You?
General Dentists at Centennial Smiles Dental in Downtown Calgary help patients create the smile they’ve always wanted with the use of Invisalign®. Dr. Rhemtulla and associates are Invisalign® providers who can attest to the ease of use and dramatic results this bracketless orthodontic system offers. Developed by Align Technology Invisalign® has been used by General Dentists around the world since 2001 – straightening teeth and improving oral health with the use of clear, removable aligners. Is Invisalign® right for you? A complimentary consultation is the best way to establish if this teeth straightening system is suitable to meet your dental needs as no two smiles are alike, and some patients may benefit from an alternative system.
How Does Invisalign Straighten Teeth?
Invisalign’s® clear removable aligners are custom made to fit the unique characteristics of a patient’s bite. There’s no one-size fits all approach with this orthodontic system as aligners are fabricated from 3D images of a person’s teeth and then used to form a template for treatment – acting as a roadmap to achieve the desired end result. Each Invisalign® case involves wearing a series of aligners, with each aligner being worn for approximately two weeks before being changed for the next aligner in the treatment sequence. Each aligner is designed to be worn for 22 hours a day – leaving some wiggle room for meals, socializing and sporting events. Invisalign® has done a great job acknowledging that life should go on as normal during orthodontic treatment – that’s why they’ve factored non-wear time in to the overall treatment plan – without compromising tooth movement and end results. Aligners are made to complete a specific phase of treatment – with each aligner being responsible for creating a desired amount of tooth movement until teeth are in better alignment.
