Welcome to our Orangeville Smiles Dentistry practice, where we are proud to offer Invisalign as a top-of-the-line orthodontic treatment option for our patients. As a 2023 Preferred Invisalign Platinum Provider (for the last 10 years), our team is highly experienced and trained in providing this cutting-edge service.
Let’s take you through a journey to tell you more about this amazing orthodontic treatment option. First things first, let’s start by answering this basic question:
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a revolutionary clear aligner system that straightens teeth without the use of traditional metal braces. It is virtually invisible and can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing.
How is Invisalign compared to traditional braces?
Invisalign is a modern alternative to traditional braces that offers a more comfortable, discreet and effective treatment option.
How Invisalign works
Initial consultation: The Invisalign treatment process begins with a consultation with our Invisalign dentist, here in our Orangeville dental clinic. Our dentist will determine if Invisalign is the right treatment option for you. Once it is determined that Invisalign is suitable, impressions, photos and X-rays of your teeth are taken and sent to the Invisalign laboratory where a 3D model of your teeth is created.
Creation of custom aligners: The Invisalign system is customized to fit each patient’s specific needs. A series of custom-made clear aligners are created specifically for you and your treatment plan.
Use of 3D imaging technology: Invisalign uses advanced 3D imaging technology to create a precise treatment plan and monitor progress throughout the treatment.
Wearing and switching aligners: You will be given a set of custom-made clear aligners that you will wear for two weeks before switching to the next set in the series. Each aligner will gently shift your teeth into the desired position.
Monitoring progress: Our Invisalign dentist will monitor your progress throughout the treatment, typically every 6-8 weeks.
Retention phase: After the active treatment phase is completed, you will be given retention phase aligners to wear to ensure that your teeth stay in their new position.
