Invisalign is a modern process to getting your teeth straightened. Your dentist from Dr. Karen Davis and Dr. John Milne Dentistry will use a series of clear aligners that are created for only your teeth in order to achieve great results when it comes to your teeth’s alignment. These trays are made of smooth, almost invisible plastic that you wear over the top of your teeth. Gone are the days of metal brackets, rubber bands and the uncomfortable feeling of braces in your mouth. We offer Invisalign for Sarnia residents who are looking to improve the cosmetic look of their teeth.
Every two weeks, you’ll be required to pop in a new set of trays that will gently shift your teeth into their correct place until treatment is confirmed as finished by your dentist. The best part of the whole process? Most people won’t even be able to tell you’re wearing anything over the tops of your teeth and won’t realize that you’re straightening your teeth at all!
Braces vs Invisalign
Braces are the common choice for cosmetic dentistry and other orthodontic needs when it comes to teeth alignment. However, they may not be the best option for you. Take a look at the following comparisons for traditional braces and Invisalign:
Treatment Time – on average, braces are adhered and worn every day, 24/7 for up to 2 years. Invisalign on the other hand is only worn for 22-34 hours and for 6-18 months, depending on your individual needs.
Follow Up – braces need to be adjusted about every month. Invisalign trays need to be replaced every 2 weeks with a visit to your dentist every 4-6 weeks.
Maintenance – braces must be brushed and wire picked to make sure no food or other debris gets caught around the brackets. There is an Invisalign cleaning system you can purchase, although brushing and rinsing your trays in lukewarm water has the same effect.
Sure, there are multiple options for straightening your teeth, including brace, Invisalign and more. But, the dentists from Dr. Karen Davis and Dr. John Milne Dentistry offer Invisalign as a comfortable and convenient way to achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. No matter your stage in life, this cutting-edge treatment minimally interferes with your everyday life while significantly impacting the look of your smile and how you feel about yourself.
