For people who have crooked, misaligned teeth, the effects on your smile can be devastating. You may feel self-conscious about revealing your teeth and find yourself unwilling to smile. This can result in lower self-confidence and overall lower quality of life. If you’re thinking of getting braces to realign your teeth to their proper places, it’s time to start looking at Invisalign instead. Invisalign is a set of clear aligners that can reposition your teeth almost invisibly. At Sidney Harbour Dental, we’ll help work with you to create your own custom plan that will get your teeth to the positions you want them.
When you sign up with Invisalign, you’ll use a series of clear aligners that will gradually move your teeth into their proper positions. Invisalign can move teeth horizontally, vertically, or even rotate teeth if necessary. Your teeth will be adjusted in sets. After approximately two weeks, you’ll switch to the next set of aligners to continue the adjustment process.
Compared to normal braces, Invisalign provides several benefits.
Can be removed at any time. Unlike braces, which are attached to your teeth, you can pop out your Invisalign aligners at any time.
You can eat what you want. Since they can be removed, you don’t have to worry that what you eat will damage your aligners. Just be sure to brush your teeth before you put them back in.
Consists of smooth plastic. No sharp metals and wires. Invisalign will not irritate or cut your cheeks and gums.
