Have you ever wanted straighter teeth, but did not want to under go the long and inconvenient process of straightening your teeth with metal braces? Braces are especially unappealing to adults who have busy lives and careers but still want the benefits of a straighter smile. Plateau Village Dental Centre in Coquitlam does not routinely put on braces, but does offer the innovative Invisalign therapy.
Teeth can actually be straightened through either conventional metal braces or through clear trays custom fitted to each individual’s mouth called Invisalign. Invisalign is the best way to straighten your teeth without having to live with the “metal mouth” look of traditional braces. Invisalign trays are not permanently fixed into the patient’s mouth so they can be taken out when need be. They’re clear so even when you’re wearing them they won’t overpower your appearance like metal braces often do.
Invisalign’s clear, removable, plastic aligners are custom-made for your teeth. You wear each pair of aligners for a two-week period, allowing your teeth to gradually evolve into the beautiful smile you always desired. Treatment length varies, depending on your dental condition and the severity of your case. The experts at Plateau Village Dental Centre in Coquitlam can asses your teeth and determine a treatment plan for you, but typically Invisalign treatment takes less than one year to complete.
Invisalign typically treats problems such as crowding, spacing, crossbite, overbite, and underbite. Invisalign therapy straightens your teeth while allowing you eat and enjoy any foods you want without having to worry about getting anything stuck in your metal braces. It is virtually invisible teeth straightening that allows you to brush and floss your teeth normally for better periodontal health. You are able to do this because you can remove the aligners whenever you want.
