Invisalign Near You
ACU Dental and Orthodontics offers Invisalign® invisible braces to people who want to straighten their teeth. If you’re looking for braces in Burnaby, Invisalign® is a convenient option. Rather than using metal braces, Invisalign® uses a series of clear plastic aligners.
Many people feel that traditional metal braces are unattractive or inconvenient. Invisalign® is a great alternative to fixing crooked teeth or bite irregularities because they are virtually invisible. This series of clear plastic aligners gradually move your teeth into their correct positions quickly, comfortably, and discreetly.
Invisalign is a fantastic option for patients who have mild to moderate misalignment. Invisalign can be used to treat bite problems (overbites, underbites, crossbites), crowding, and gaps. Our dentist will examine your teeth and gums to determine if Invisalign is the ideal solution for you. If you have more severe crowding and misalignment, we will recommend a more suitable alternative.
The Process of Receiving Invisalign
The Invisalign® treatment begins with a consultation to discuss treatment goals and inform you about the Invisalign® realignment process. Second, impressions need to be made so that a specialized lab may manufacture your custom aligners. To change the positions of your teeth, Invisalign® aligners are to be worn for two to four weeks. After that period, you would move on to another set of aligners. While the aligners are to be worn virtually 24 hours a day, they can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing. The majority of patients complete their Invisalign® invisible orthodontics program in a year on average; however, some patients straighten their smiles in half the time. Treatment times depend on the patient’s individual needs. In the consultation and throughout the process, the team at ACU Dental and Orthodontics will establish realistic expectations.
A lot of patients report that they don’t even notice wearing Invisalign® because these clear plastic aligners feel so natural. Another advantage of Invisalign® invisible braces is that they don’t disrupt your lifestyle the same way traditional metal braces do. Since they are removable, you are free to eat the foods you love without any restrictions. They are also easier to maintain. You can brush and floss as you usually would.
