Smiling Man with Invisalign


While crooked teeth can negatively affect your confidence and your oral health, you may be hesitant to undergo treatment in braces. 

Fortunately, Dr. Nathaniel Podilsky can provide comfortable, discreet treatment with Invisalign® clear aligners. 

Here's why you should consider Invisalign treatment by the DentaCare Group in Downtown Edmonton, AB.

Invisalign Offers Several Advantages
Compared to Traditional Braces

Discreet Treatment

Many of our Edmonton patients initially avoid orthodontics because they don't want to wear the metal wires and brackets used in traditional braces. Invisalign aligners are made of clear plastic that is virtually invisible and does not affect the appearance of your smile. 

Comfortable Fit 

The smooth plastic aligners fit comfortably around your teeth and do not interfere with your lifestyle and activities. While braces can irritate the inside of your mouth and increase your risk of injury when playing contact sports, Invisalign aligners won't.

Removable Hardware

You should wear your aligners for about 20 to 22 hours each day, but you are able to remove them as needed. This allows you to eat any foods you want and brush and floss using the same techniques.

Just Need A Retainer?


Wearing a retainer is crucial to preserving your results — and you should be commended if you've been diligent about using yours. If your retainer is lost, broken, or simply in need of a replacement, though, our dental team can assist. Starting with a consultation, we can gather your measurements to create a brand-new retainer, so you can continue to enjoy your best smile.

Investing in Invisalign allows you to reap long-term changes in your appearance and confidence.

Invisalign Can Correct
Many Common Orthodontic Problems

Invisalign aligners can do much more than straighten slightly crooked teeth. The powerful system works for a wide range of orthodontic concerns, including: 

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Gapped teeth
  • Overcrowding
  • Crossbite 
  • Open bite

In some cases, we can place Invisalign attachments onto your enamel to assist with more intensive needs. However, not all patients are candidates for Invisalign. In some cases, we can secure Invisalign attachments onto your enamel to assist with more intensive needs. Our Downtown Edmonton dental office will conduct a detailed screening to determine if this treatment is right for you.

What Can Proper Alignment Prevent?

The improved appearance and confidence you can experience after Invisalign are just the beginning of the advantages of this treatment. In addition to cosmetic enhancement, Invisalign can also improve your oral health. How? Proper dental alignment can prevent:

Tooth Decay

When your teeth are correctly spaced, you can brush and floss more thoroughly and avoid tooth decay. 

TMJ Disorder

Invisalign can correct your bite alignment, preventing stress on your jaw and conditions like TMJ disorder.

Sleep Apnea

Better dental alignment can reduce symptoms of sleep apnea by keeping the airways open to promote normal breathing. 

Explore Your Candidacy

The best way to find out if Invisalign is right for you is to schedule a consultation with our dentist, Dr. Podilsky. Using his advanced digital iTero® scanner, he can determine the position of your teeth and your degree of misalignment. To learn more about straightening your smile, email us or request a consultation.

When you visit Dr. Podilsky, you'll receive care from a dentist who has proudly treated Edmonton patients since 1987.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Don't want to deal with braces tightening appointments or noticeable hardware? Invisalign uses effective custom-made clear aligners. Over time, each set will bring you closer and closer to your final results. Once you're done with a pair of aligners, you can switch them out — but we advise holding onto your older sets in case you lose or damage any successive ones.

For a Finishing Touch, Consider Teeth Whitening

Invisalign can address the position of your teeth, making them look straighter and more even. However, it can't change the color of your enamel.

That's why we offer teeth whitening to give you beautiful final results. Plus, with both at-home and in-office options available, we can make sure your full cosmetic dentistry treatment plan is as simple as possible.

Wearing Your Aligners

You will use a new set of trays approximately every two weeks. In order to achieve the desired results, the aligners must be worn for 20 to 22 hours per day. In some cases, patients may also need Invisalign attachments. Attachments are the same shade as your enamel and allow more extensive repositioning.

Maintaining Your New Smile: Life after Invisalign

Once you complete your treatment, Dr. Podilsky in Edmonton will provide a retainer to protect your newly straightened smile. In some cases, you may wear your last aligner as a retainer. For the best possible results, you should wear your retainer every night and take it with you when you travel. 

A retainer is a medical device that should be carefully stored and transported. Keep your device in a hardshell case and clean it thoroughly every morning to prevent bacteria buildup.

Modern orthodontic treatment doesn't have to involve metal brackets and wires. With Invisalign, you can feel confident and comfortable while you straighten your teeth.

Invisalign & Braces Have Similar Costs

Invisalign typically costs about the same as braces: an average of about $3,000 to $10,000. Additionally, insurance coverage usually applies to both treatments.

However, the cost of orthodontic treatment will always differ based on the complexity of the case, such as whether or not you will need Invisalign attachments.

Dental insurance often contributes to the cost of Invisalign.

Insurance and Financing Can Make Treatment More Affordable

Dental Insurance

Most insurance plans cover some of the costs of your orthodontic treatment. If your provider offers coverage for traditional braces, they will likely also cover clear aligners. Our Edmonton team will be happy to look into your dental insurance to find out what benefits you are entitled to, as well as file a claim to ensure you get maximum coverage for your treatment. 

Financing Plans

If you do not have dental insurance or need additional help with your out-of-pocket expenses, consider flexible financing. Our Downtown Edmonton practice offers in-house payment plans and will work with you to accommodate your budget, which can make treatment costs much more manageable. 

Frequently Asked Questions About Invisalign

Until you are able to meet with us at our Edmonton office, we have provided answers to three common questions about Invisalign:

How long will I wear Invisalign aligners?

Patients typically wear Invisalign aligners for 12 to 18 months. However, the actual length of your treatment will depend on the severity of your case and how often you wear your aligners. Failing to wear them for 20 to 22 hours each day can lengthen your treatment timeline, resulting in unnecessary delays. For some patients, there are also accelerated treatment options available.

Won't I have a lisp?

Invisalign aligners are custom-made to fit securely against your teeth. Although it can take a few days to adjust to the aligners, you will grow used to speaking clearly with your aligners on. Because they are transparent, your friends and family may not even notice when you wear them.

Am I too old or too young for Invisalign?

Clear aligners can be designed for either teens or adults who want straighter smiles. It is never too late to consider clear aligners from our Downtown Edmonton, AB, practice. If you are a teen or adult who is ready to do something about misaligned teeth, you are the right age for this orthodontic treatment!
