If you’re thinking of getting braces but don’t like the aesthetic of metal braces, you might want to consider getting Invisalign with us. Westhills Dental Centre is certified to provide our patients with Invisalign® invisible braces. This new wave of braces uses new technology to offer you the clearest way to a great smile.
Invisalign uses mechanical force to straighten your teeth, however, unlike traditional metal braces which use brackets and wires, Invisalign uses clear, removable invisible aligners that will straighten your teeth without anyone realizing you are receiving orthodontic treatment. Our Calgary dentists will make sure you have a dental cleaning first before doing any Invisalign treatments. It is the utmost importance to have clean teeth and to not have any underlying dental issues before starting your Invisalign treatment as any possible cavities or root canals may cause problems. Next, our dentist will use the iTero Element® scanner to digitally scan your teeth, so we can map out and a custom treatment plan for you. This scan will be sent off to the lab alongside your teeth impression and bite registration. The lab will create several clear, plastic moulds, in which you will have to wear over a period of time. These moulds are made from a patented thermoplastic material referred to as “SmartTrack.” Each mould will move your teeth closer to a perfect alignment. It’s a tailored dental solution that uses just enough pressure to allow the next mould in the progression to fit.
With Invisalign, you’re able to remove the invisible braces whenever you please. However, it is highly inadvisable to remove them unnecessarily: only take them off when you eat and drink. After you eat your meals, brush your teeth and put them back in again. You must wear your clear aligners for 20-22 hours per day for best results.
Once you’ve received your first set of invisible braces, you will meet up with your dentist in Calgary every 6-8 weeks to check your progress and pick up your next set of clear aligners.
So, if you’re in search of Invisalign invisible braces in Calgary look no further than at Westhills Dental Centre. We will take great care of you and your smile. Contact us to book an appointment for Invisalign.
