Invisalign is a series of aligner "trays" made of durable, transparent, medical-grade thermoplastic material that fit exactly over top of your teeth. Like standard braces, Invisalign gradually moves your teeth into a straighter alignment, but Invisalign aligners are removable, nearly invisible and more convenient.
Northmount Dental Care is an Invisalign Preferred Provider.
Prior to receiving your first Invisalign aligners, our dentists will perform a thorough evaluation to determine the present condition of your teeth, the goal of the treatment, and the time it will take before you can see results.
Based on this information, a series of Invisalign aligners will be custom-made for you. Each pair of Invisalign aligners (top and bottom) are worn for two weeks, then a new pair is used, until the orthodontic correction is complete.
Invisalign has several advantages over other types of orthodontics, including self-ligating braces which are also available at our Calgary clinic. For one, Invisalign aligners are removable, allowing you to enjoy the same foods as you did before orthodontics. Invisalign also makes it easy to maintain proper dental hygiene, since you can easily remove your aligners while brushing or flossing your teeth.
The fact that Invisalign is made of transparent material also makes the treatment nearly undetectable when worn. For many patients, this is more aesthetically pleasing than braces.
In order to be a candidate for Invisalign, all of your permanent teeth must have erupted. This may occur between ages 11 and 15. Book a complimentary consultation if you feel orthodontic treatment may be necessary, and you're interested in Invisalign.
At Northmount Dental Care, we offer flexible payment options for our Invisalign treatment in order to accommodate your needs and financial means. Take advantage of our complimentary consultation if you are interested in Invisalign for yourself or your child, but you are not sure about the costs. You will receive a written estimate without having to make any commitments.
If you suffer from crowded or crooked teeth, then successful Invisalign treatment can bring dramatic results. Your teeth will be less prone to wear-and-tear which is caused by an uneven bite, and your oral health will improve since misaligned teeth can be difficult to clean and lead to decay and gum disease.
Straight teeth can also give you a more attractive smile and many Invisalign patients find themselves to have much higher self-confidence after their smile has been corrected.
Whether you are looking for an Invisalign treatment or traditional braces, Northmount Dental Care can provide you with the orthodontic service you need. For Invisalign treatment, we are an Invisalign Preferred Provider and will offer treatment in-house without referring you to a specialist. Our flexible payment options also make Invisalign treatment considerably more affordable for you.
