Get to Know the Benefits of Invisalign - You Will Love It
What could be worse than having misaligned teeth? Do you want to have straight teeth but hate the idea of having the traditional "train track" orthodontics? Then Invisalign is what you are looking for. This procedure will give you straight teeth without anybody knowing that you're wearing braces.
Invisalign is an innovation in orthodontics and is a terrific alternative to metal braces. One thing that is good about this procedure is that it doesn't use metal wires or bands. Instead, the patient is fitted with a series of clear custom aligners that do all the work. You can see now where its name came from - it's invisible and it is an aligner, hence Invisalign. This device is great for adults and older teens.
How many patients are turned off at getting braces done because of the unappealing "metallic" look? With Invisalign, you won't have to worry about that anymore.
Patients with invisalign love being able to take off this device to eat, brush their teeth or go to special occasions. However, you do need to wear them about 22 hours a day, every day, to see the results.
One of the benefits of removable Invisalign trays is that it can move your teeth gradually, and make it easy for the patient to eat, talk, brush and floss.
Let's see how it works at Dentistry on King
At Dentistry on King, a clinic in downtown Toronto, our resident dentist, Dr. Cheng will take impressions, digitize them, and create a 3D model to plan out the gradual movement of your teeth. Using that model, custom aligners will be generated to fit your teeth. Then, every couple of weeks you'll change your aligner, gradually repositioning your teeth until you've got the straighter, better-looking smile you want.
Do they work for kids?
We will not beat around the bush with you. Actually, we don't recommend them for younger children for a couple of reasons. They still have baby teeth that need room to come out, and because the aligners are removable, it's been our experience that most kids don't have the discipline to wear and care for them properly.
Come and visit the clinic at downtown Toronto conveniently located at 5 King St East, Unit C or give us a call at 416- 368- 8000. Call now and let us help you get those teeth aligned without that metal look!
