Do you find yourself hiding your smile for the family photo? Are you self-conscious about smiling or talking when you meet someone new? Living with crooked teeth takes a toll on your confidence, and it’s always on your mind. You may have thought about straightening your teeth; however, the idea of wearing metal braces also seems unappealing. If there were a way to align your teeth without anyone noticing, would you do it? Of course you would!
Calgary Dental House is proud to offer an option for our patients living with crooked teeth that allows them to straighten their teeth with discretion. Instead of using traditional orthodontics, which uses brackets and wires to move your teeth, Invisalign and ClearCorrect utilise clear aligners made from plastic, which makes them virtually invisible.
Aligners are customized to fit snugly so they’re comfortable to wear and don’t interfere with your daily activities. Because they’re removable, you can easily take them out for brushing and eating; however, they should be worn at least 22 hours per day to ensure the best results.
How long will treatment take?
If you’re compliant and faithful about wearing your aligners, most Invisalign cases can be completed in around 12 to 18 months, which makes them ideal for busy adult and teen patients who are concerned about straightening their teeth with traditional braces.
Invisalign and ClearCorrect offer more than just discretion to our patients. You’ll typically have fewer visits with our doctors during your treatment since you’ll change your aligners out at home. With our schedules getting busier and more hectic, it’s nice to be able to take charge of your own orthodontic treatment.
Since aligners are removable, there are no restrictions to your diet or changes to your home care routine as there would be with traditional braces. For many teens, straightening their teeth without braces is an instant boost to their confidence and self-esteem, while adults enjoy the fact that clear aligner therapy is efficient and effective. With great compliance and a commitment to following the treatment plan, patients can start enjoying their dazzling new smile in no time.
Am I a candidate for clear aligners?
Our doctors are certified Invisalign providers, which means they can determine if Invisalign or ClearCorrect is right for you with a thorough examination, photos, and x-rays of your teeth. We’ll use 3D imaging to create your treatment plan, and we can even show you what your smile will look after treatment before you even begin! Invisalign or ClearCorrect will use our treatment plan and specifications to fabricate your aligners, which you’ll change at home every two weeks.
