What is Invisalign?

A popular orthodontic treatment approach called Invisalign employs a set of transparent, removable aligners to straighten teeth and treat your orthodontic problems. They are customized for each patient, offering a more subtle and convenient alternative to traditional braces.

What are dental retainers?

Retainers are the devices designed to maintain the teeth alignment after the completion of Invisalign process. They prevent the teeth from shifting back to their original positions as they were before Invisalign or braces treatment. Retainers are one of the most significant parts of your orthodontic treatment.

Types of retainers

Removable Retainers:

They are made up of plastic or acrylic material. They are easy to wear or remove. They are commonly used after Invisalign or traditional braces treatment.

Bonded Retainers:

These are made of thin wires, permanently bonded to the back or tongue side of your teeth. They are not noticeable from the front of your teeth. They are often recommended for cases where there is a significant risk of teeth reverting into their previous malaligned positions.

Process of getting Invisalign orthodontic treatment  

Consultation: Our dentist will examine your teeth, obtain a digital scan and take some pictures of your facial profile and of the dental arches, and then discuss the best suited orthodontic treatment plan with you. 

Treatment plan: If Invisalign treatment is suitable for you then your digital scan will be sent out to the lab to fabricate the trays as per our Dentist’s treatment plan.

Aligner Fabrication: A set of clear aligners is customized specifically for you based on the treatment plan. Your teeth will move into the proper position gradually with each pair of aligner trays. The complexity of your case will determine how many aligners are used in the series and how long the treatment will take to complete.

Wearing the Aligners: A series of aligners will be given to you; you must wear each set of aligner trays for around two weeks before switching to the next. They must be worn for at least 20 to 22 hours every day. They can be removed while eating and drinking. 

Progress Checkups: Your orthodontist will check in with you on a regular basis to assess your progress and provide you with fresh sets of aligners. These examinations normally take place every 4-6 weeks.

Results: You will start feeling and noticing the progress in a few weeks of starting the treatment. Your teeth will slowly shift into the desired functional alignment. Invisalign trays are nearly invisible aligners which makes your treatment less noticeable compared to metallic braces. 

Retention. Right after you complete your series of Invisalign, you may need to wear retainers which depend on your dentist’s recommendation.

Additional FAQs

Invisalign aligners are a modern orthodontic remedy for straightening teeth that uses a series of custom-made, clear plastic trays to gradually adjust and straighten teeth. Unlike traditional metal fixtures, the align technology uses trays that are nearly invisible and can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing.  An Invisalign treatment offers a discreet and convenient option for improving dental alignment.

One of the most appealing aspects of Invisalign aligners is their clear design, which makes them almost invisible when worn. This feature is particularly attractive to adults and teens who are self-conscious about wearing metal braces.

Removable: Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners can be removed by the wearer. This allows for easier eating, brushing, and flossing, contributing to better overall oral hygiene during treatment.  Clear aligners are also less noticable in general than traditional braces and can be better suited for social situation. 

Effective: Invisalign treatment effectiveness is high, especially when it comes to patient adherance because of the easy of use and the advanced clear aligner system and the align technology.  Although each Invisalign treatment is different advances in align technology has increased their effectiveness and many people can now choose this option.  

A typical Invisalign treatment duration varies depending on the complexity of the dental issues being corrected, but on average, it ranges from 12 to 18 months. However, some cases may be shorter, around 6 months, while more complex situations may require up to 24 months or more. The exact time can only be determined by an orthodontist after evaluating the individual’s specific needs.

Through the course of an Invisalign treatment, three things that can significantly help ensure the process is as effective and comfortable as possible include:

1. Good Oral Hygiene: During your Invisalign treatment maintaining excellent oral hygiene is crucial. This means brushing and flossing after every meal and before reinserting the trays to prevent trapping food particles and bacteria, which can lead to cavities and gum disease.

2.Wearing the Trays Consistently: For the treatment to be effective, it’s recommended to wear the trays for 20 to 22 hours a day. Consistent wear ensures that teeth move according to the planned schedule.

3. Regular Follow-up Appointments: Keeping up with scheduled orthodontic appointments allows for progress monitoring and adjustments as needed. These check-ups are essential for moving on to the next set of trays at the right time and addressing any concerns promptly.

The cost of an Invisalign treatment in Canada can vary widely depending on several factors, including the complexity of the dental issues being addressed, the duration of the treatment, and the specific provider. 

Invisalign cost will generally includes the initial consultation, a treatment plan (including the align technology), the aligners or trays themselves and any post treatment retainers. 

Generally, the price range for Invisalign treatment in Canada is between CAD 2,500 and CAD 8,000. More complex cases that require longer treatment times may fall at the higher end of this Invisalign cost range or possibly exceed it.

It’s important to consult with an orthodontist or dentist who offers Invisalign treatments for a precise quote. Many dental insurance plans in Canada cover a portion of orthodontic treatments, including Invisalign, so it’s also a good idea to check with your insurance provider to see what portion of the cost might be covered under your plan.

The good news is if. you have crooked teeth, or less than ideal oral health we can help, and it is much more accessable than it used to be both for the budget and for social situations.  Although treatment times vary depending on your situation we can provide you with a custom plan, and support no matter what your teeth require.
