A few people are naturally gifted with a straight smile. For most of us though, it seems an unattainable goal, at least without traditional orthodontics with unsightly wire braces. Fortunately, you have another option that straightens your smile without forcing you to suffer through unappealing brackets: Invisalign braces.
When you choose Invisalign in Mission, BC, you can get the benefits of braces with fewer drawbacks. Use Invisalign to straighten a crooked smile, improve your bite or enhance your teeth's position for future cosmetic work. No matter why you need Invisalign, one of our dentists can assess your smile and let you know if Invisalign will work for you.
Like traditional braces, Invisalign braces straighten your teeth. Unlike traditional braces, they're nearly invisible. Instead of brackets and wires, Invisalign treatments use a series of clear plastic trays to gradually nudge your teeth into place. You can remove the trays whenever you want, but for best results, you should remove them only to brush your teeth or eat.
Traditional braces can make cleaning your teeth difficult. They can also sometimes create sores where your brackets rub against the gum. Avoid some of these key complications with Invisalign braces.
Plus, thanks to Invisalign, you can straighten your smile without announcing it to the whole world. You can generally speak and smile comfortably while wearing your braces, which means other people will have a difficult time spotting them.
Dr. Smillie will first consult with you to determine if Invisalign products will work for you. If they can, you’ll receive a series of trays to switch out every two weeks. During your treatment, you’ll also visit us every six weeks to ensure your smile is straightening out correctly. Make sure to wear your trays consistently to achieve favourable results.
