We offer Invisalign near you, which are removable, clear thermoplastic aligners as an alternative to traditional wire and metal orthodontic braces. Invisalign gradually shifts your teeth using a series of aligners that can be removed easily so you can brush, floss, and eat naturally throughout your treatment. We are happy to offer Invisalign treatment in Okotoks.
Invisalign Near You
Receiving Invisalign in Okotoks, AB starts with your dentist taking 3D scans of your mouth, teeth, and jaw. The purpose of a 3D scan is so your dentist can prepare a customized treatment plan that caters to your smile needs and goals. These 3D scans will also be sent off to an Invisalign laboratory, which will be used to fabricate your custom aligners. Once the aligners are made and sent back to our dental clinic, you will come in for your second appointment to receive your custom aligners. Your aligners will be worn for 22 hours a day and only taken out to eat and brush your teeth. Wearing your aligners as often as possible is crucial for this treatment.
Every two weeks, you will be given a new set of aligners that will help shift your teeth into their proper position. You will also receive refinement aligners towards the end of your treatment if it is necessary. By the end of your treatment, you’ll have a straighter smile! You can sustain your new and improved smile by wearing a retainer at night.
If you’re interested in receiving Invisalign in Okotoks, you will have occasional appointments with us to monitor your progress and discuss any questions you have. Using the original 3D scans taken to make your treatment plan and to prepare your aligners, your dentist will track your progress against the original positions of your teeth and their ultimate destination.
Ideal candidates for Invisalign are usually teens, adults, or even mature adolescents with mild to moderately misaligned teeth. Invisalign is not appropriate for everyone, so your dentist will carefully assess the current position of your teeth and oral health to determine if Invisalign is right for you. If you have significant issues with spacing or alignment with your teeth, your dentist will recommend an alternative solution.
