A Subtle Orthodontic Solution Using Invisalign®

Invisalign® versus bracesInvisalign® has changed the face of orthodontic treatment. The system straightens teeth using a series of clear, plastic aligners designed for comfort and ease-of-use. The aligners are removable, so patients can slip them out during mealtimes, or to brush and floss their teeth. And, perhaps best of all, the aligners are completely clear, so no one will be able to tell you’re wearing them.

While the process is subtle, the results achieved with the Invisalign® system are dramatic. If you are interested in learning more about Invisalign®,contact Dr. Leah Stempfle in Edmonton, Alberta today.

How Does Invisalign® Work?

First, your dentist will take digital pictures, x-rays and impressions of your mouth in order to create your individualized series of clear, plastic aligners. These aligning trays, made of smooth, BPA-free plastic, are designed to be much more comfortable than traditional braces. With Invisalign®, there are no uncomfortable metal brackets or wires to deal with, and the trays can be removed while eating or brushing your teeth.

Using a new set of trays approximately every two weeks throughout your treatment plan will gradually bring your teeth into proper alignment. In order to achieve the desired results, the aligners must be worn for 20 to 22 hours per day. Your dentist will invite you back approximately every six weeks in order to monitor your progress and make sure you’re on track to the achieving the smile you’ve always wanted.

Benefits of Invisalign®

For many, the main draw of Invisalign® is its subtlety—with the clear, plastic aligners, you can straighten your teeth without drawing attention to your orthodontic treatment.  However, there are many other benefits to choosing Invisalign® beyond simple aesthetics.

Invisalign® makes it easy to maintain your oral hygiene at home, since the aligners can be conveniently slipped out while you brush and floss. The liners themselves are easy to take care of as well, needing only to be brushed clean and rinsed with warm water.

With the Invisalign® system, you are free to live your life as usual. Because the trays can be removed during eating, there are no restrictions on what types of food you can enjoy during your treatment. And, because there are no metal brackets in your mouth, you’re free to play sports and lead an active lifestyle.

Who Is Invisalign® For?

Invisalign® provides an ideal solution for adults looking to straighten their teeth without noticeable dental appliances. An increasing number of patients are discovering how easy it is to straighten their smiles discreetly, in the midst of busy professional and personal lives. 

“Invisalign® Teen,” designed specifically for younger users, uses the same technology as the adult system, with several modifications. A blue dot on each set of aligners serves as a “compliance indicator,” telling teens—and their parents—if the aligners have been worn for the necessary amount of time. Also, the Invisalign® Teen treatment plan takes into account the fact that a teenager’s developing mouth may still house several baby teeth.
