Invisible Braces / Clear Braces Whitby
Orthodontic treatments, such as braces, are designed to help adjust misaligned teeth. While they may only be a cosmetic issue for some, misaligned teeth may also put strain on certain teeth by creating an uneven bite load. At Whitby Smile Centre, we offer our patients Invisalign treatment in Whitby, Oshawa. This is a brand of orthodontic appliances that aims to help with misalignment without the use of traditional braces.
Invisalign is a brand of clear dental aligners which are designed to fit over your teeth and gradually apply pressure to help guide your teeth into a desired alignment. Patients will likely receive multiple versions of the aligners to be used at different stages. The reason for this is that once the teeth have been positioned into alignment, the new aligner will progress them into the next stage of the treatment until the aligner needs to be changed again. For this reason, the amount of aligners a patient receives will depend on the amount of changes that are needed.
It is important to note that while Invisalign is a removable device, it is recommended that you keep it in most of the time and only remove it to eat and do your oral hygiene regimen. The reason for this is that invisalign requires time to adjust the alignment of your teeth. Also, while Invisalign is meant to serve as an alternative clear braces choice to traditional braces, it will not entirely emulate the results. Consult with a dental professional if you have concerns about the differences between the two options.
