Invisalign straightens crooked teeth and fixes unusual gaps quickly, discreetly, and gently by using clear and removable aligners made based on three-dimensional scans of your mouth.
Invisalign Near You
Developing treatment plans for Invisalign in Calgary, AB begins with taking 3D scans of your jaw, mouth, and teeth. The goal is to determine what steps need to be taken to achieve your goals of straighter teeth. Those scans will be used by Invisalign to create a series of individual thermoplastic aligners. Invisalign will send that series of aligners — each slightly different and to be worn in order — to us so we can meet with you to get you acclimated and started. You’ll wear each aligner for as many hours as possible every day — approximately 22 hours daily is ideal — for two weeks before switching to the next slightly different aligner in the series. When you want to eat, brush, and floss you can simply remove the aligners and do all those things completely naturally. Returning to your Invisalign treatment plan is as easy as cleaning your aligner and snapping it back into place. You’ll switch aligners every couple of weeks as your teeth are guided into the targeted positions.
At the end of the series of aligners, we’ll compare the results with the original goal and simulated results. If any refinements are necessary, you’ll receive refinement aligners. Once your goals are met, you’ll sustain your new smile by wearing a retainer overnight on an ongoing basis.
During your treatment plan, you will come into the office for short and convenient follow-up appointments. The purpose of the appointments will be to ensure that you’re on track toward completion of your treatment plan and to confirm that you’re maintaining good oral hygiene and your aligners properly.
Adults, teens, and mature adolescents experiencing mild to moderately crooked teeth or spacing issues are ideal candidates for treatment with Invisalign near you. Your dentist will conduct a careful assessment of your teeth and goals before determining whether Invisalign is a good fit. If other teeth straightening options are more appropriate, we’ll provide recommendations.
