If you’ve always dreamed of having straight teeth and a movie-star smile, Maxx Dental Group has good news: we offer invisible braces from Invisalign®. We’re your source for orthodontics in Fort McMurray! No longer do you have to contend with metal brackets and wires on your teeth, with troublesome rubber bands snapping painfully in your mouth and sharp metal corners irritating your skin. Invisalign® clear aligners are much less noticeable to others and a whole lot more comfortable to wear! Invisalign® is an option for adults who have always wanted straight teeth but who hesitate at the idea of wearing metal braces at a professional job.
Invisalign® moves your teeth gradually with several sets of clear, custom-made tooth aligners made of BPA-free plastic. The dentists at Maxx Dental Group will start with an X-ray of your mouth so your set of aligners can be custom-made from the digital 3D image. After wearing your corrective aligners 20-22 hours a day, you’ll update to a new set of aligners every 2 weeks. Treatment with Invisalign® takes about a year—around the same as metal braces. So what’s the difference?
The difference is that, because they are perfectly clear, Invisalign® aligners are virtually invisible! Many people won’t even notice that you’re wearing them. Teens and adults alike also love Invisalign® because you simply take them out when it’s time to eat or brush and floss. We highly recommend keeping them in their case while you eat, as they’re clear and easy to throw away at the end of the meal if you’re not careful! You can eat corn on the cob, sticky caramel, and apples while straightening your teeth with Invisalign®—all of which are forbidden with metal braces.
You also won’t have to contort into gymnastic positions in order to brush and floss your teeth. Again, simply take out your aligners, brush and floss as usual, rinse the aligners and pop them back in your mouth. And because Invisalign® aligners are completely smooth, they won’t cause the mouth sores you can get from metal braces. Finally, treatment by Invisalign® results in less discomfort than metal braces do. Since the movement of the teeth is very gradual, patients report minimal pain or none at all.
Sometimes the aligners need a little help in moving the tooth, which is why our dentists use attachments toward the end of the treatment period. Attachments, in this case, are small bumps made of tooth-coloured composite resin that are placed on some the teeth to be moved. They are virtually invisible and are removed with a polishing tool without damage to the tooth at the end of your treatment period. Attachments can help you achieve optimum results from Invisalign®.
Here at Maxx Dental Group, we want you to be proud of your teeth and smile. Let us help you achieve the look you’ve always wanted with the Invisalign® clear straightening system. All it takes is a quick call to our office to schedule a consultation, and we’ll discuss your tooth-straightening options with you. There’s no reason to wait!
Instead of using traditional metal braces to align their teeth, older teens and adults today have the option of choosing a teeth straightening method known as Invisalign®. Offered by the Fort McMurray dentist Maxx Dental Group, Invisalign® uses custom-made, clear aligner trays to straighten out a smile. If you’ve been avoiding orthodontic treatment because of concerns about the look and feel of braces, then you don’t have to wait any longer. Invisalign® treatment in Fort McMurray has 5 important benefits for you:
One of the main reasons why people choose Invisalign® in Fort McMurray is because Invisalign® aligners are far more comfortable to wear than traditional braces. Invisalign® trays are easy to wear and require very little getting used to. Your teeth are gently moved into the desired position without causing you any discomfort or irritation, which may occur with traditional braces.
Because Invisalign® trays rarely cause irritation, you don’t have to worry about developing sores inside of your mouth. Wearing traditional metal braces comes with the added risk of having the inside of your mouth scratched by the bits of metal or wire that the braces are made out of. Save yourself the potential pain and trouble by choosing Invisalign® braces instead.
Another reason why your Fort McMurray dentist will likely suggest Invisalign® is for the unrivalled convenience of this teeth straightening method. The plastic aligners can easily be removed when you are eating, drinking, or brushing your teeth, and can easily put back on afterwards. Taking these short breaks will not affect treatment outcomes. The no-fuss-no-muss Invisalign® treatment is ideal for people with a busy schedule.
The number one reason why people opt for Invisalign® from a Fort McMurray dentist is that the trays are so discreet to the point of being nearly invisible (hence the name). The clear aligners will likely go unnoticed unless you actually point them out to others, and even then there isn’t anything unsightly about them. Invisalign® is a great solution for people who are worried about the look of braces more than about straightening their smiles.
5. Short Treatment Duration
While your individual treatment duration is going to depend on the severity of your alignment issues, Invisalign® treatment is comparably faster than treatment with traditional braces. Results are usually achieved within a year, though some patients with minor alignment issues may see treatment completed in as little as 6 months. Ask a Fort McMurray dentist about Invisalign®, and you’ll likely be pleasantly surprised with how quickly it may work for you.
