Say goodbye to traditional metal braces and straighten your teeth with clear aligner technology from Harborn Dental. We are pleased to feature Invisalign® in Mississauga, a well-known orthodontic care option for both adults and teens. If you’ve always wanted to correct your smile, but didn’t want to deal with brackets and wires, you now have an option that’s nearly invisible.
Many adults have taken advantage of the Invisalign® system and appreciate the fact that the aligners are virtually indistinguishable when fitted over your teeth. You don’t have to feel self-conscious when getting orthodontic care anymore. At Harborn Dental, we are experienced with this technology and can let you know if Invisalign® is a viable solution for you. Give us a call to schedule a consultation.
Who is Suitable for Invisalign®?
A sought-after treatment option by adults, Invisalign® is suitable for teens as well. In fact, this system has proven to be effective in treating various cases, from mild and moderate to more complex straightening needs. With SmartTrack® material and SmartForce® features, Invisalign® is capable of offering a comfortable fit and predictable tooth movement.
The Following Conditions Can Be Successfully Treated with Invisalign®:
While this system is advanced and suitable for a wide range of orthodontic cases, it isn’t the answer for every patient. If you have a deep overbite, severely rotated teeth, or other complex misalignments, we may recommend a different path.
How Does It Work?
The first step is a consultation with Harborn Dental, your experienced provider of Invisalign® in Mississauga. We will determine if this system is right for you and then proceed by taking 3D images of your teeth. From there we can map out a treatment plan and give you a good idea of how long your orthodontic care will last.
Once you get your first set of clear aligners, your journey to a straighter smile will begin. You will receive a new set of aligners at regular intervals based on your customized treatment plan. In some cases, patients may move to a new set of aligners every week. Our dental team will check your progress at regular intervals as well. The final stage of your care may include a Vivera® retainer, which will help to maintain the corrected position of your teeth.
Watch Out for Those Extended Meals and Remember to Clean
Keep in mind you should wear your aligners for 20-22 hours per day. You can eat whatever you want during treatment, but you need to remember to put the aligners back in. Wearing the aligners for less than the suggested time may impact your results and extend your treatment time.
You will also need to make sure your teeth are clean after meals as you don’t want food debris caught between your aligners and teeth. A travel toothbrush is a wise investment so you can maintain proper hygiene when at work, school, or anywhere else you may be. Floss is also a good item to keep close by.
