Are you worried about your smile everytime you take a picture? If you think it’s too late to achieve straighter teeth, our team of experts is here to prove you wrong. Come to our Sandstone Dental clinic, and get your NW Calgary Invisalign today!

What is Invisalign?

It’s not surprising why many people dread the thought of having braces since traditional braces use unsightly wires and brackets to straighten the teeth. Our dentist will then need to adjust the wires and brackets over the course of several dental appointments. Braces use mechanical methods, using wires or braces to re-align your teeth by adding gradually increasing pressure.

It’s generally a misconception that you need to be a certain age to get braces and that chances of straightening your teeth reduce as you grow older. Braces are ideal between the ages of 8-14 when children have lost their baby teeth. It is easier at this age, as the dental structures are still malleable, but this doesn’t mean that it’s impossible to straighten teeth when you’re older.

It’s usually the clunky appearance and inconvenience of wired and bracketed braces that put adults off of traditional braces. Invisalign solves the issue by offering clear aligners comprising of flexible plastic. More and more dental clinics are offering Invisalign, and if you’re looking for NW Calgary Invisalign, we will be happy to help.

Is Invisalign more effective than braces?

The answer to this question will depend on the state of your dental issues. Invisalign is great for slightly crooked teeth, which require less corrective treatment, but it doesn’t beat the mechanical pressure coming with bracketed braces. In bracketed braces, the brackets are attached to the face of the teeth, providing greater restriction and alignment.

Hence, while Invisalign can be just as effective as braces for slight misalignment issues, traditional braces are still favored for complex dental alignment cases. We recommend that you speak with a dentist to evaluate your case and see which option is better for you.

What Invisalign treatment involves

You will first have an initial consultation or evaluation with a dentist to assess the health of your teeth and gums, to ensure they are fit for Invisalign treatment. After cleaning and preparing your teeth, your dentist will customize the treatment plan depending on the extent of your dental alignment.

The first step in the treatment is to create a unique aligner that fits your teeth perfectly. We will achieve this by creating a mold of your current teeth and making a plastic Invisalign replica based on it. During your treatment, you will have several aligners made for you based on the changing position of the teeth. It is important to provide personalized solutions, to increase the effectiveness of the treatment.

At Sandstone Dental, we believe that it’s never too late to fix your smile. We are qualified to provide NW Calgary Invisalign treatment. Contact us to know more about Invisalign or any of our cosmetic dental services.
