A myth about Invisalign is that it will only correct slightly crooked teeth. While it is true that traditional braces address many misalignments of teeth, it's equally true that Invisalign works to fix many alignment issues, as well. Make an appointment to talk to the dentists at Green Grove Dental about your Invisalign eligibility.
Invisalign appliances are not simply retainers; the clear material used to make the aligners is perfect for daily oral wear. Most people will not even realize you are wearing them if they didn’t know before they saw you.
Can I get Invisalign in St. Albert?
Absolutely! Green Grove Dental offers the Invisalign teeth straightening system as an option to regular braces. Invisalign avoids the “brace face” look with all the wires and brackets — no worries about wires breaking all the time.
How Does Invisalign Work?
An advanced system of clear "aligners," Invisalign provides a more comfortable way to realign upper and lower teeth in adolescents and adults alike, as well as being the #1 dentist-recommended clear aligner treatment. Invisalign is the most advanced clear aligner available. There are over 900 patents filed for this one system.
At your first appointment to get started with Invisalign, our staff takes a 3D image of your teeth. This scan replaces all the goopy molds used in the past. The 3D scan is then placed in the ClinCheck software programmed especially for Invisalign design. Using ClinCheck, a futuristic image is produced of how the patient’s teeth will look after treatment is finished.
The specifications are sent to the Invisalign lab where the first set of aligners are molded using the patented SmartTrack material, customized for each patient in each progressing series. The molds are manufactured, trimmed, and inspected, then sent to Green Grove Dental to begin treatment.
As the patient begins to wear a new aligner, it will probably feel tight, which is natural. When the aligner starts feeling a little loose, it is time to start using the next aligner in the series.
Checkups will be scheduled every four to six weeks to monitor the progression of teeth movement and to pick up the next set of aligners. The total time per day needed to wear the aligners is ultimately determined by your dentist, but it is typically 22 hours per day. Each set of aligners are worn for approximately two weeks before starting a new set.
What Are the Benefits of Invisalign in St Albert?
Invisalign is an easier system to straighten teeth than regular metal braces. Foods, activities, and sports are not restricted or banned. Invisalign aligners are removable for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. The normal oral cleaning routine will be the same with brushing, flossing, and rinsing with an antibacterial mouthwash. Each night, the aligners will need to be rinsed and cleaned gently. The dentist will provide the correct cleaning instructions.
Having straight teeth is more than just a dental issue. Crooked teeth affect self-confidence and self-image. Straightening teeth can bring a smile back to your face and make everyday activities more enjoyable. Don’t cover your teeth in photographs. Talk to us about making your smile the best it can be.
