If you’re looking for a straighter, more balanced smile without the hassle of traditional braces, try Invisalign® aligners at our Red Deer and Stettler dental offices. Instead of wires and brackets, Invisalign® uses a series of plastic aligner trays to move your teeth into alignment gradually. Having your smile straightened with Invisalign® can be comfortable as well as an effective way to get the beautiful smile you deserve. Get in touch with us at Appleway Dental Clinics to discuss your needs.
All about Invisalign®
These “invisible” braces are a popular option for many patients looking to straighten their teeth discreetly. The plastic trays are clear and custom made for your specific requirement. A series of trays are made for the entire course of treatment, and the patient wears each one for two weeks to gradually move individual teeth into better alignment. If you’re worried about your misaligned teeth and molars, we recommend Invisalign® to dramatically improve your smile.
Invisalign®: The Treatment Process
The treatment process of Invisalign® is rather different from that of traditional braces. During your first appointment, we will take impressions to determine the current alignment of your teeth, and these will be sent to the Invisalign® laboratory. The models are scanned and then a computer program is used to determine how the teeth should align over the course of time. The laboratory then fabricates your set of aligner trays, creating an individual series, and sends them to our clinic. Once you pick up the aligners, you will be educated on how to care for and use them.
What Invisalign® Can Do?
These invisible aligners cannot do everything that traditional braces can. If you have mild to moderate misalignment, you can benefit from these aligners. Many patients prefer Invisalign® over traditional braces because they are more discreet, comfortable and easy to use.
