What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a orthodontic treatment that offers a discreet and comfortable way to achieve a straighter, aligned smile.

Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign utilizes a series of clear, removable aligners to gently shift your teeth into their desired positions. These virtually invisible aligners are custom-made to fit your unique dental anatomy, making them a popular choice for both teenagers and adults seeking a more convenient and aesthetically pleasing solution to orthodontic issues.

Invisalign Invisible Braces

How Invisalign Works?

Invisalign uses cutting-edge technology to straighten teeth without the need for conventional braces.

This innovative orthodontic system uses a series of custom-made, transparent aligners that gradually reposition your teeth over time. Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks before transitioning to the next, gently applying pressure to shift teeth into their ideal alignment.

Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are removable, allowing for convenient eating and oral hygiene. Dawson Dental can effectively address various dental concerns, offering a discreet and comfortable alternative to a beautiful smile.

Invisalign Process

  1. Initial Consultation
    The journey begins with a consultation with an experienced Invisalign provider. During this visit, your dentist will assess your dental health, discuss your goals, and determine if Invisalign is the right choice for you.
  2. Digital Impressions
    Traditional moulds are replaced with state-of-the-art digital impressions. Your Invisalign dentist will use advanced scanning technology to create a 3D image of your teeth, enabling precise treatment planning.
  3. Custom Treatment Plan
    Using the digital impressions, your dentist will create a custom treatment plan. This plan outlines the anticipated movements of your teeth throughout the Newmarket Invisalign treatment.
  4. Production of Aligners
    Based on the treatment plan, a series of clear, custom-made aligners will be produced. Each aligner is designed to gradually shift your teeth into their desired positions.

  6. Regular Progress Checks
    Throughout your treatment, you’ll have periodic check-ups with your dentist to monitor progress and receive new sets of aligners.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Invisalign Better Than Braces?

Invisalign offers many advantages, such as being nearly invisible and removable, making it a preferred choice for many.

However, the choice between Invisalign and braces ultimately depends on your individual needs and preferences. Consulting with a dentist can help determine the best option for your specific case.

Is Invisalign Really Worth It?

Many patients find Invisalign worth it due to its comfort, aesthetics, and effectiveness in achieving a straighter smile. Its convenience and discreet appearance often justify the investment. Consult with a dental professional to assess if Invisalign aligns with your goals.

How Long Does It Take to Get Straight Teeth

The duration of Newmarket Invisalign treatment varies from patient to patient.

On average, it takes about 12 to 18 months to achieve straighter teeth with Invisalign in Newmarket. The exact timeframe will depend on your specific orthodontic needs.

Is Invisalign Painful?

Invisalign may cause mild discomfort or pressure as your teeth adjust to the aligners. This discomfort is usually temporary, and signifies the aligners are working.

Over-the-counter pain relievers can help alleviate any discomfort. As a general rule, Newmarket Invisalign is less painful than traditional braces.

How Many Times a Day Can You Take Invisalign Out?

Invisalign aligners should be worn for at least 20-22 hours a day. You can remove them for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing.
