Invisalign® – The Clear Alternative to Braces

Invisalign is a modern orthodontic treatment that uses a series of custom-made, clear plastic aligners to gradually shift your teeth into the desired position. Unlike traditional braces, which use metal brackets and wires, Invisalign employs a series of clear, plastic aligners that fit perfectly over your teeth.

These aligners are custom-made to gradually shift your teeth into their desired positions, providing you with a beautifully aligned smile discreetly and comfortably.

How Does Invisalign Work?

The Invisalign treatment process involves a computer-generated plan, where a series of aligners are custom-made for your teeth.

These aligners are worn for about two to three weeks each before moving on to the next set in the series. This process continues until your teeth have reached their final, straightened position.

Invisalign vs. Traditional and Clear Braces

While traditional braces use metal wires and brackets, and clear braces use less noticeable materials, Invisalign aligners are entirely transparent and removable.

This offers a level of discretion and convenience not typically available with other forms of braces. They are an excellent option for those who want to maintain a natural appearance throughout their orthodontic journey.

Duration of Treatment and Follow-up Appointments

The duration of Invisalign treatment varies based on the complexity of your case but typically ranges from 12 to 18 months. You will have regular follow-up appointments at Unionville Orthodontics to ensure your treatment is progressing as planned and to receive your following sets of aligners.

Cost and Insurance in Markham

Invisalign treatment cost can vary depending on the complexity of treatment. It may also be slightly higher then using traditional braces as there is a supplemental laboratory component.

Many dental insurance plans in Canada cover a portion of orthodontic treatments, including Invisalign, especially for patients under a certain age. However, the extent of coverage can vary significantly between policies.

Some may cover a percentage of the cost, while others might offer a fixed benefit amount. It’s important to check your specific policy for details on orthodontic coverage.

Oral Hygiene and Aftercare

One of the significant benefits of Invisalign is the ease of maintaining oral hygiene. The aligners are removable, allowing for regular brushing and flossing. After completing your Invisalign treatment, it’s typically recommended to wear a retainer to maintain your new smile.

Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners offer more dietary freedom. You can remove them to enjoy your favourite foods without worrying about damaging brackets or wires. Invisalign aligners fit seamlessly into your lifestyle, providing a hassle-free orthodontic solution.

Potential Discomfort and Pain

You may experience mild discomfort or pressure when you first start wearing a new set of aligners. This sensation is typically temporary and indicates that your Invisalign treatment is working.
