Straighten Your Smile - Experienced Invisalign® Aligner Provider in Calgary
Traditional metal braces have long been the singular choice for patients who need to have their teeth realigned. Today you have many choices beyond metal braces. Some of these new options provide a purely cosmetic improvement, while others can correct your bite as well, helping you achieve a healthy and appealing smile.
Quarry Park Dental provides Invisalign clear aligners for our patients in Calgary who wish to obtain a straighter smile without having to wear highly visible traditional braces.
Better Results than Once Thought Possible
When it comes to Invisalign clear aligners, there is a misconception that this innovative straightening system can only make slight cosmetic changes to your smile. This couldn’t be further from the truth, as over the past decade, it has been well documented that Invisalign aligners can correct even moderately complex malocclusions.
The dentists at Quarry Park Dental work closely with Invisalign’s lab and are meticulous when using this advanced and discrete tooth straightening system.
How Invisalign Works
Invisalign clear aligners are fabricated to fit comfortably over your teeth, while being difficult to detect by those around you.
This treatment utilizes several sets of plastic trays that are worn over your teeth. Each set of trays applies a gentle force to move the teeth closer to their proper position. The set is replaced every two weeks with the next set of trays in the series to get you closer to your ideal smile.
The Benefits of Invisalign
The advantages to this orthodontic alternative include the clarity of the trays, allowing for a discrete but effective treatment option as opposed to metal braces that stand out in the smile. These virtually invisible trays typically go unnoticed.
Metal braces cannot be removed, which can create some limitations to your ideal at-home oral health care routine. Invisalign clear aligners are designed to be removed for brushing and flossing.
Can Anyone use Invisalign?
It is important to adhere to the Invisalign guidelines. This means continuing to wear the aligners throughout the day and night for at least 22 hours, only removing them to brush and floss your teeth, and while eating. For this reason, Invisalign aligners are typically recommended for adults and mature teens who understand the importance of complying with these instructions.
