Clear Braces & Invisilign Calgary Orthodontics

Do you want straighter teeth? Straightening your teeth doesn’t have to be a pain in the mouth. Forget about stiff-metal wired braces that get in the way of life and irritate your gums. At Macleod Trail Dental, we offer Invisalign, a clear and flexible braces alternative. Suitable for adults, teens and kids, these invisible aligners are removable and comfortable.

Invisilign is commonly used to fix problems such as:

  • Crowding
  • Unevenly spaced teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite

We take a modern approach to orthodontics by straightening out your teeth using custom-made, invisible aligners. Aligners gradually and comfortably shift your teeth into the proper position. Most importantly, exact teeth movements are planned and determined by your orthodontist depending on your particular situation.

The best part of all? No one can tell you’re wearing anything on your teeth! All the while, your teeth are getting straighter, and your smile brighter!

Additionally, Invisalign offers ease and convenience. Hence, why it’s the number one braces alternative amongst our patients. Furthermore, it has given thousands of people worldwide a brand new, beautiful smile.

Invisalign Calgary: What is the process?

The Invisalign process is straight-forward. Plus, it is simple and pain free. More specifically, it involves five main steps:

1. Primary consultation

First, you’ll have a consultation with one of our Calgary dentists. During the primary consultation, your specific oral requirements are examined to determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign. We always encourage our patients to take this opportunity to ask us any questions about the treatment. Such as, the cost of Invisalign, duration of treatment, or any other concerns you may have.

2. Customized treatment

After your consultation, our dentist takes x-rays and impressions of your teeth. As a result, we can enter your exact mouth into a specialized Invisalign system and create a 3D image of your bite. As you can see, the entire process is highly customized. This allows us to create a precise treatment plan that takes the unique movements of your teeth into consideration. At this point, our dentist will offer an approximate time frame for treatment. In general, a full program takes under one year to be effective.

3. Receive your Invisalign aligners

Based on your specific treatment plan, we create a series of custom-made aligners for you to wear. The aligners are made from a smooth and comfortable plastic that won’t interfere with your day-to-day activities. You can wear them throughout the day. Simply remove them every time you want to eat or brush your teeth. As you wear the aligners, your teeth will gently shift into the correct position. For best results, wear your aligners for 20-22 hours a day throughout your entire treatment.

4. Progress into new aligners every 2 weeks

Every 2 weeks, we give you a new set of aligners. Each new set of aligners advances you to the next stage of your treatment. In addition, we encourage our patients to come in for checkups every 6 weeks or so to monitor progress.

5. Enjoy your brand new smile!

By the end of your treatment, you will already enjoy a brand new beautiful smile. However, it’s important to take care of your new look for long lasting results. Therefore, we often recommend our patients use retainers to maintain the new position of their teeth.

Advantages of Invisalign Calgary

If you want to straighten your teeth without metal braces there are several choices. So, what makes Invisalign such a popular option? For starters, Invisalign is comfortable and convenient. Furthermore, it offers a mouthful of advantages, including:

  • Comfortable Plastic Aligners

Invisalign’s high-quality, smooth material offers unparalleled comfort. Don’t worry about sores, scratches or mouth irritation—all of which are common with metal-wired braces.

  • Easier to Clean

One of the biggest challenges to braces? Removing all the food particles that get trapped in your brackets. Over time, this can lead to plaque buildup, tooth decay and stains. On the other hand, Invisalign aligners are removable. That means it’s easy to brush and floss your teeth like normal.

  • Eat What You Want

It’s difficult to eat with big metal braces. Plus, there’s always the risk of food getting caught in your braces and damaging a wire.  These worries are far from your mind with Invisalign. After all, you remove your aligners every time you eat.

  • Advanced Technology

Invisalign treatment is fully computerized. As a result, we can estimate how long your treatment will take and digitally map out the process.

At Macleod Trail Dental, we are committed to providing our patients with comfortable orthodontic treatments. Our goal is to give you a brand new smile. That way, you can live your best life with confidence.
