Do you want straighter teeth but reject the idea of wearing traditional metal braces? Apparently, you are in good company. It is estimated that over a million people across the globe choose Invisalign to achieve the smiles they desire. Orthodontic treatment with invisible braces provides discreet pain-free correction without brackets or wires. Invisalign treatment involves a series of custom fitted clear aligners that gradually fix imperfect teeth.
During the first step, the Invisalign dentist will take digital images of your teeth. Next, the Burnaby Invisalign team will use a 3D model to map out the movement of your teeth. Custom Invisalign clear braces are then crafted to fit your unique case. You will change to the next aligner every couple of weeks, as prescribed. Invisalign braces gradually reposition teeth in small increments until the desired result is reached.
Part of the appeal of Invisalign clear braces is that they are removable. Patients like having the luxury of taking out their aligners to eat, brush their teeth or for special occasions. But keep in mind, to achieve optimal results, Invisalign treatment requires at least 22 hours of wear each day, consistently.
