Woodview Family Dentistry is an Invisalign®️ provider in Burlington, ON. Invisalign®️ was approved by the FDA as an alignment technique in 1998. Since then, millions of patients have been smiling happily because of Invisalign®️ clear aligners. Like braces, Invisalign®️ uses pressure and time to adjust and correct teeth but with less of a hassle.
Our dental office in Burlington, ON offers Invisalign®️ clear aligners as a comfortable, convenient alternative to braces. Unlike traditional braces, which have metal wires and brackets, Invisalign®️ is nearly invisible. Because they are nearly unnoticeable, a patient’s self-esteem will not be negatively affected. Since Invisalign®️ is removable, diet changes are not necessary. Chewing gum and eating foods that you enjoy is not hindered when wearing Invisalign®️ clear aligners since they can be taken off when eating. Because they are removable, they are also easy to clean. Despite being removable, patients should still wear Invisalign®️ clear aligners twenty to twenty-two hours a day.
At your initial consultation, your Woodview Family Dentistry dental team will take an X-ray and scan your teeth. This scan will be sent to Invisalign®️ in Burlington, ON to create custom clear aligners for you. Impressions using traditional materials that taste foul are a thing of the past with Invisalign®️’s scanning methods. Our dentist will work with you to determine the adjustments you need. Check-ups will be required only every six weeks to make any adjustments and to make sure that the treatment is working properly. Clear aligners are usually sent to the patient to be changed every week or every two weeks. Adult patients may need to wait longer to change their sets because their teeth are matured and harder to shift into place. As you replace each aligner, your teeth will gradually shift into the correct position.
Invisalign®️ clear aligners are virtually invisible, which makes them a convenient way for teenagers and adults to shift their teeth into the proper place.
