Orthodontist Dr. Gus Spillas at Square One Dental in Mississauga, Ontario offers expert Invisalign orthodontics designed to fit your lifestyle and needs.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a modern orthodontic solution that utilizes a custom-made sequence of clear aligners that gradually move your teeth to an ideal position. The aligners are made of clear plastic that is both smooth and comfortable. What makes Invisalign so different from traditional metal braces is that the aligners are practically invisible.
Adults are often concerned about the appearance of traditional metal braces, and Invisalign addresses this concern with its subtle appearance and just how effective the process is. While Invisalign appeals to adults, it is often a good orthodontic option for teens, as well. Dr. Spillas at Square One Dental in Mississauga is highly experienced with Invisalign and works with patients every day to perfect their smiles.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign treatment involves a series of alignment trays that are custom-made just for you. These alignment trays gradually move your teeth to the desired position over time. The first step in the process is to meet with Dr. Spillas for a consultation. At this time, we’ll create your initial treatment plan after taking digital images of your jaw (no dental puddy necessary) in its entirety and using the most current technology to visualize what your teeth and face will look like during and after treatment.
Next, we make your custom series of alignment trays, the total number of which will vary depending on your current teeth position and how far they will be. For most patients, each arch requires 20-29 trays. Throughout the treatment, you’ll get a new set of trays every several weeks.
How Does Invisalign Feel?
When you first get your Invisalign alignment trays, it takes a few weeks to get used to them. It’s important that you wear them constantly, with the exception of then you eat or drink. Additionally, brushing and flossing between meals is a must to avoid trapped food and bacteria. With your commitment to proper use and care, Invisalign will deliver results while you forget you even have them on.
