Questions About Invisalign Your Toronto Dentist Can Answer

Today there are more options than traditional metal braces for straightening teeth. Invisalign is one of the most popular treatment options. This treatment option is more comfortable and barely noticeable by others. But you may have a few questions about them if you are just hearing about them. Here are answers to some of the frequently asked questions. If you have more questions about Invisalign your Toronto dentist will be happy to answer them for you.

How does Invisalign work?

You’ll be given Invisalign aligners that are custom made just for you. These clear, plastic aligners gently push and pull your teeth into place without the use of metal brackets or wires. You will change aligners usually each week as prescribed by your dental professional.

Who can wear Invisalign?

A dentist may prescribe Invisalign for Toronto patients who suffer from a variety of dental issues. These clear braces may be used to treat issues from mild to very advanced problems. They are beneficial for correcting teeth that are twisted, titled, overlapping or crowded. Invisalign aligners can help remove gaps from between teeth and in some cases help correct a misaligned bite.

How can I get Invisalign in Toronto?

Your Toronto dentist can offer you a consultation to determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign. He will examine your teeth and talk to you about your treatment goals. He can also help develop a plan and set goals for your Invisalign treatments.

What makes Invisalign better than braces?

It can be different for each person, but the primary advantages of wearing Invisalign rather than traditional braces include:
  • Effective treatment option for misaligned teeth
  • Allows you to eat the foods you enjoy
  • Removable for oral hygiene, eating, or special occasions
  • More comfortable than metal braces
  • Smooth plastic rather than metal in your mouth
  • Reduces the amount of dentist visits necessary during the treatment process

Properly aligned teeth not only give you a beautiful smile, but they can significantly improve your overall dental health.
