Many individuals seek a straight smile, but the thought of wearing traditional braces can often hinder patients from receiving the necessary treatment. Riverside Dental Centre offers patients Invisalign as a discreet way of straightening teeth and generating a beautiful smile. Call and schedule your appointment with one of our dentists in Red Deer, Alberta.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a method of straightening teeth using clear aligning trays instead of metal wires and brackets. As patients graduate through treatment, aligning trays are changed on an average of every two weeks to continue gently shifting teeth into an ideal position.
Benefits of Invisalign include:
- Removable design
- No diet restrictions
- Practically invisible treatment
- No metal brackets or wires
- Enables regular brushing and flossing
Our practice utilizes the latest in computer-aided designing (CAD) technology to create accurate impressions. From these impressions and the design software, a dental lab develops a customized set of aligning trays that fit snuggly to a patient’s smile. Individuals receiving teeth alignment through our practice do not have to use any goopy impression material that may cause a sensation of discomfort. Digital impressions provide improved comfort with incredible accuracy.
Clear Braces in Red Deer
While traditional braces still have their place in modern dentistry as a means for addressing severe malocclusion and misalignment, Invisalign can help patients who require minor to moderate levels of alignment correction.
This method of teeth alignment gives patients the convenience of removing the aligning trays while eating, brushing, and flossing. As long as the aligners are worn for at least 20 to 22 hours a day, the Invisalign treatment will produce effective results. Invisalign allows patients to engage in proper hygiene maintenance without the need of the additional effort or tools often required when wearing braces. Additionally, patients can eat whatever they would like without worrying about braking a bracket.
