Using clear, removable aligners as opposed to braces Invisalign® is the clear, ‘invisible’ way to straighten your teeth. Our orthodontists are experienced in assessing if you are an eligible candidate for treatment and will be able to accurately gage the potential results and costs involved upon your initial assessment. Invisalign® is an effective option for those with good jaw structure but poorly aligned teeth.
How it works
Invisalign® works through a series of removable aligners that are designed to slowly guide your teeth into their optimal positions while you wear them. During regular visits to Mountains Orthodontics every 6-8 weeks you will be provided with your new set of around 4 aligners which are to be changed every 2 weeks. These regular check-ups are also a great opportunity for our team to assess your progress and make and required adjustments to your aligners.
As the aligners are removable, brushing, flossing, eating and drinking are no longer and issues for patients. Simply remove your aligner and eat, drink and clean your teeth as you normally would. During an average treatment plan a patient will be provided with between 18 and 30 aligners.
What are the benefits of Invisalign®?
As Invisalign® is virtually invisible it allows for patients to undergo treatment without attracting any unwanted attention. This is a great option for those people who have previously avoided more traditional orthodontic due to concerns about their aesthetic appearance.
As they can be easily removed Invisalign® does not require any specific oral hygiene techniques or tools for brushing and flossing. Further, Invisalign® treatment will not place any restriction on the types of food or dinks that you can consume.
If you feel that Invisalign may be the treatment option for you or a member of your family, contact Mountains Orthodontics to arrange an consultation and Invisalign® assessment.
