Invisalign in Mississauga
Living with crooked or misaligned teeth affects your life in a number of ways. You may feel self-conscious or embarrassed about your smile, which affects your confidence. You may have difficulties keeping your teeth clean when they overlap, which puts you at a higher risk for periodontal disease or fractures to your teeth.
Did you know that a misaligned bite could also affect your jaw joint and contribute to a painful jaw disorder known as TMJ?
You may have considered straightening your teeth, but who wants to wear metal braces to the next board meeting at work? What would life be like if you could straighten your teeth discreetly, without anyone noticing? Can you imagine yourself with a beautiful, straight smile?
Invisalign may just be the dental solution for you!
What Is Invisalign?
Instead of using traditional metal brackets and wires, Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners that apply gentle pressure to gradually straighten your teeth. Most Invisalign cases take around 12 to 18 months to complete. You’ll wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day and change them every two weeks. You’ll visit your dental provider every two to four weeks to make sure that you’re progressing as planned.
What Are the Benefits of Invisalign?
What patients love most about Invisalign is the fact that the aligners are virtually invisible. Because of their snug fit, you’ll be able to smile, talk, and interact normally throughout your day, and no one will ever know that you’re straightening your teeth.
Aligners are removable and can be taken out for eating, brushing, flossing, and even the occasional big event. Removable aligners mean that there are no diet restrictions as there are with traditional braces, and it also means that your home care routine won’t change. Invisalign is the perfect option for busy adults or teens looking for a discreet way to straighten their teeth, and the result is a smile that you’ll be proud to share with others!
At Toronto Lakeshore Dental, both Dr. Joo and Dr. Moore are certified Invisalign providers. This means that they will be able to determine if Invisalign treatment is right for you with an examination, photos, and x-rays. With 3-D, imaging our doctors will create your treatment plan, and your aligners will be fabricated based on this plan. 3-D imaging also allows us to show you what your newly aligned smile will look like – even before treatment starts.
