It is no secret that straight, well-aligned teeth are an important part of a great smile. Unfortunately, the inconvenience and discomfort often associated with traditional metal braces can keep some people from wanting to straighten their teeth. For these patients, Invisalign could be the perfect solution. Lifestyle Dentistry is pleased to offer this clear, plastic and virtually invisible way to straighten teeth and help you achieve the smile you have always wanted.
Your Mississauga Choice for Invisalign Treatment!
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign uses a series of soft plastic clear aligners that fit comfortably over your teeth to straighten your smile gradually and gently over time into the position your dentist has outlined for you. Customized to your teeth using precise calculations and measurements, you can rest assured the final result will be a smile that truly fits you! There are no wires or brackets to irritate your mouth, and they are virtually invisible to anyone else! Unlike traditional braces, you can remove your aligner during your oral hygiene routines and while eating your favorite meals. Brushing and flossing is not complicated, and you do not have to give up any of the foods you love.
How long will Invisalign Treatment Take?
While treatment time varies from patient to patient, and your dentist will determine what is best for you, general treatment time is between 9-15 months. Each set of aligner trays is worn for approximately 2 weeks before being changed out to the next aligners in the series. You will see your dentist every 4-6 weeks to check on your progress. For best results, aligners should be worn for 20-22 hours a day for the full duration of treatment, allowing up to 2 hours per day to remove for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing.
The Perfect Alternative to Traditional Braces
Invisalign for Teens
Lifestyle Dentistry appreciates that teens already have enough on their plate without having to feel anxious over their smiles. Invisalign is the perfect solution! With Invisalign, teens can get the beautiful, healthy aligned smile they deserve, without any brackets and wires. Aside from effectively straightening smiles, Invisalign has several advantages over traditional braces. Because Invisalign aligners are removable, there is no banned foods list! Your teen will be free to enjoy all their favorite treats without worrying that it could compromise their orthodontic treatment, and they can brush and floss normally instead of having to clean around all that hardware. As an added advantage for parents, each Invisalign teen aligner has a blue indicator that fades over time if your teen is wearing them as often as directed, so you can make sure they are staying on track with their treatment!
