Invisalign® Invisible Braces in NW Calgary
From overbites to underbites, there are many reasons why braces may be needed. Invisible braces by Invisalign® are a popular dental procedure for straightening teeth. It allows patients to realign their teeth to the desired position without the need for traditional metal brackets and wires.
All of our services are performed by general dentists.
How Does Invisalign® Work?
Invisalign® takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created specifically for you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, clear plastic that you simply wear over your teeth.
Each aligner applies a precise amount of light pressure in strategic spots, gradually and gently shifting your teeth into place based on the exact movements your dentist or orthodontist plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You simply put in a new set of aligners when directed, approximately every two weeks. This routine continues until your treatment plan is complete.
Covert Smile Correction
Because Invisalign® aligners are clear, they can appear practically invisible. Some patients report a higher sense of confidence, feeling that no one can see their dental appliance. Because there are no wires, brushing and flossing is just like normal. Unlike conventional braces you won’t get your favourite foods stuck on metal parts, because there aren’t any wires or brackets
