Invisalign devices are discreet and removable, which allows you to achieve a straighter smile without changing your habits, as well as discreetly.
An option discreetly
When you think of orthodontics, the first image that usually comes to mind a teenager wearing metal braces. While this is not totally wrong, it is quite simplistic. Not only are orthodontic treatments available for people of all ages, but there are more modern alternatives to choose from. One of the options best suited to working of adults is Invisalign invisible orthodontics.
Invisalign is an alternative to traditional orthodontics
Orthodontics is one of the dental disciplines in which general dentists, such as those at the GK Dental Centre in Brossard, are trained. Orthodontics focuses on problems related to teeth alignment (their sometimes problematic or irregular location on the dental arch) and how the jaws meet when the mouth is closed (occlusion). While traditional treatments such as braces are used to improve tooth alignment and occlusion, the Invisalign invisible treatment can also achieve great results. Discreet and minimally invasive, it uses progressive transparent aligners.
Treatment planning :
First, your dentist determines the goals of the treatment. He or she will then take X-rays and 3D scans of your mouth to determine the specific treatment. A model of your mouth is used to determine the desired results of the treatment and design the various aligners.
Wearing the aligners :
The aligners are worn at all times, except when eating and brushing/flossing your teeth. During the treatment period, which usually lasts a few months, the aligners should be changed on a regular basis (every 1-2 weeks) to keep up with the changes.
Getting and keeping results :
After several months of wearing the aligners, you should notice significant changes in the alignment of the teeth. To prevent your teeth from shifting back, it is often recommended that you wear the aligners after the treatment ends. This will ensure that the improvements made during the treatment last forever!
An excellent option for active people
The subtlety of the Invisalign treatment often makes it preferable to adults who want the benefits of an orthodontic treatment (a prettier and more functional smile, better health and integrity of the teeth, less jaw pain, etc.). It is more appealing and less invasive than a traditional treatment, making it more compatible with an active lifestyle. Because the aligners are removable, they can be taken out to eat and brush/floss your teeth. The aligners are also not too uncomfortable or painful. Supervision by a dentist also guarantees safety: the treatment and its specifications are determined based on each individual's needs, features and expectations.
