Invisalign Teeth Aligners in Burlington, Ontario
Crooked or crowded teeth not only affect the look and feel of your smile, but they can also make it difficult to keep your teeth clean and effectively fight decay. These can lead complicated, costly procedures down the line. In the past, bracket braces were the only option for correcting alignment issues, but more patients are looking to Invisalign as an effective alternative to traditional bracket braces.
Dr. Thelam Nguyen at Tansley Woods Dentistry in Burlington, ON is educated and specially trained in the application of Invisalign teeth aligners. He has years of experience working with patients of all ages, and can inform you about the Invisalign process, acting as your guide throughout the course of treatment. He will also monitor your progress, making sure you get the best possible results.
What to Expect from Invisalign
Invisalign is a leading innovation in low-impact orthodontic procedures. It is a custom-made system for realignment, tailored to meet your specific goals and needs. If Invisalign is right for you, Dr. Nguyen will use x-rays and 3D imaging to take a comprehensive look at your teeth and their underlying structures. Those images will be sent to Invisalign, who will manufacture a system of take-home trays designed to slowly shift your teeth into alignment. Each new tray makes an incremental shift, keeping discomfort to a minimum and avoiding the painful tightening process associated with bracket braces altogether.
Your customized transparent trays will be practically invisible to the naked eye. They hug your teeth, but have a natural look and feel, so they typically go unnoticed. Unlike traditional brackets, Invisalign trays can be removed for eating, drinking, and cleaning your teeth, making life much easier for patients undergoing alignment. The length of treatment varies on the severity of your symptoms, but Invisalign is commonly seen as a faster solution than traditional braces and can usually be completed with 6 to 8 months.
