At our Mississauga and Georgetown office, we take immense pride in being able to help Canadians all across Ontario radically change their smiles with the help of Invisalign.
Invisalign, as you may have heard, is this year’s most popular must-have. Over 6 million people have undergone Invisalign treatments and there are plenty of reasons why.
Invisalign is Comfortable!
Invisalign is the modern alternative to traditional metal braces.
As you change your aligners your teeth will slowly and comfortably move into the desired position designed by your Orthodontist. Unlike metal braces made with unsightly brackets and wires that come with their own level of discomfort, Invisalign appliances are made from medical-grade polyurethane resin that’s (almost) invisible, and quite gentle on the teeth and gums.
Invisalign is Easily Removed!
Invisalign aligners must be worn 22 hours a day, but, there is some flexibility there. In the days before Invisalign, your only option was traditional braces, which can trap food in the wires and brackets. This can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, and unwanted cavities during your treatment, making Invisalign the better choice.
Invisalign aligners are removable so you can take them out to eat, and you’ll be able to brush and floss your teeth as you normally would, allowing you to maintain your regular level of oral hygiene consistently and without disruption.
Invisalign is Designed to be Functional!
Aligners are designed to be removed so you can continue to eat and drink whatever you want whenever you want, and taking part in sports and similar activities will continue to be a breeze. Soccer practice? Hockey game? No problem. Pop your aligner out and put it in your case until after your big win!
As well, unlike traditional metal wires, Invisalign aligners have smooth edges which makes them more comfortable for wear. Unlike brackets, if you find your Invisalign aligner has a rough edge, you don’t need to rush back to your Orthodontist; you can gently file down your aligner using an Emery board and carry on with your treatment comfortably.
A Straight-Toothed Smile is Good For Your Health!
From teens to adults who have teeth misalignments or bite problems, Invisalign is the key to having a healthy and happy smile. These clear aligners are highly effective in fixing a multitude of dental problems, and because Invisalign is designed to straighten your teeth, this may help your jaw alignment, sleeping habits, and, general oral hygiene by removing some of the spaces in your mouth where plaque and food can get stuck. This will allow you to keep your teeth cleaner and feel more confident in your new smile.
A Straight-Toothed Smile Will Boost Confidence!
It’s no secret that teens benefit from Invisalign on a psychological level. Smiles that have protruding or crooked teeth can be a large issue for many people and teenagers are no exception. Those who are experiencing a lack of self-confidence during adolescence are more susceptible to poor decision making and feeling apprehensive about their appearance; by undergoing an Invisalign treatment your teen will feel more confident with each passing day.
