Invisalign

Crooked, uneven teeth can cause you to feel self-conscious, and may even contribute to oral health issues.

Dr. Nathaniel Podilsky provides Invisalign®, a braces alternative that is more discreet, more comfortable, and works faster.

So why should I consider Invisalign?

Invisalign Offers Several Benefits

Discreet Treatment

Many patients avoid orthodontics because they don't want to wear the metal wires and brackets used for traditional braces. Invisalign aligners are made of clear plastic for discreet treatment.

Comfortable Fit 

The smooth plastic material is more comfortable than metal and does not irritate the inside of your mouth. You are also less prone to cuts and injuries if you play sports.

Removable Hardware

You should wear your aligners 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.

What can Invisalign do for my smile?

Are you a candidate for Invisalign?

Invisalign Can Correct Diverse Issues

If you are unhappy with the alignment of your smile, Invisalign may be able to provide the enhancements you desire. The clear aligner system can correct:

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

However, it is important to note that not all patients are candidates for Invisalign. If you suffer from more severe malocclusion, you may require traditional braces to achieve your goals.

Is Invisalign more expensive than braces?

Invisalign & Braces Have Similar Costs

Invisalign typically costs about the same as braces: an average of about $3,000 to $8,000. Additionally, insurance coverage usually applies to both treatments. However, the cost of orthodontic treatment will always differ based on the complexity of the case.

Smile More Confidently

Undergoing treatment with Invisalign can transform your smile into something you can feel confident about. After treatment, many patients experience a substantial boost in their self-esteem. The improvements that Invisalign provides can also help you to avoid issues such as teeth grinding and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. Your teeth will also be easier to clean. In general, patients who straighten their smile with Invisalign can experience a noticeable improvement in their quality of life.

Invisalign® 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 and Dr. Nathaniel Podilsky in Downtown Edmonton, Alberta today.

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. 

Don’t let straightening your teeth interrupt your lifestyle. Learn more about Invisalign® from Dr. Leah Stempfle and Dr. Nathaniel Podilsky by contacting our Downtown Edmonton, Alberta practice today.

Invisalign Teen?

“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.
