Orthodontic Services from your Family Dentist
You are looking at the mirror, and you don’t like the alignment of your teeth. You wish your smile were a bit straighter to complement your beautiful face. You’ve thought about orthodontic treatment, but the idea of train track braces puts you off. Does this sound like you? Your dream of a straight, healthy smile is now possible without conventional braces. Innovative dental offices like Dentistry on 10 in Mississauga, Ontario, use Invisalign — a braceless method to straighten your smile with comfort, speed, and convenience.
What to expect with Invisalign
Traditional braces straighten your teeth by using wire-connected brackets attached permanently to your teeth. These braces apply constant pressure on your teeth to reach the desired position. Invisalign uses the same principle to align your smile, but the approach differs. Instead of metal wires and brackets, Invisalign uses transparent, removable braces to align your teeth.
The first step during Invisalign treatment is to book an appointment with a certified dentist like Dr. Kotecha. After evaluating your smile, the next step is to map out your treatment plan. We use Invisalign technology to determine how and when each tooth will move. This technology also helps our lab fabricate a set of plastic trays for alignment.
When your clear aligners arrive after about two weeks, our dental team will instruct you on how to use them. Typically, you should wear the invisible trays for about 20-22 hours daily for faster results. Additionally, each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks before moving to the next set. If you follow our team’s guide, you can straighten your smile in less than 12 months!
