No matter what your age, you're never too old to consider getting braces. If you don't have the smile you want, you might want to think about orthodontic treatment. With all the wonderful advancements to orthodontics over the years, we are now happy to offer discreet ways to straighten your teeth without anyone else noticing. One example is Invisalign, a clear set of removable aligners that slowly reposition your teeth to get the smile you've always wanted. If you are weighing the pros and cons of getting Invisalign in North York, ON then find out what this treatment will entail and if Invisalign is right for you.
Step 1: Dental Consultation
You will need to have a thorough exam and consultation with Kaydental before you can get Invisalign. After all, we want to make sure that your treatment goals can be achieved through this specific type of orthodontic treatment. Not all alignment and dental issues can be corrected with Invisalign. We will run X-rays and determine whether Invisalign is right for you. If you are a good candidate for Invisalign, we will map out your treatment plan and take impressions of your teeth to send to the Invisalign lab to make your aligners.
Step 2: Invisalign Fitting
Once the lab is finished custom-designing your aligners, they will send your entire treatment packet to us at Kaydental. Then you will come into the office to have your first set of aligners placed on your teeth.
Step 3: Aligners
You will wear your aligners for about 20 to 22 hours out of the day. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks. You can remove your Invisalign aligners, however, you only want to do this when you eat or when you brush and floss your teeth. The longer you leave your aligners off, the longer your treatment will be.
Step 4: Regular Dental Visits
You will continue to see your North York, ON dentist very four to six weeks to make sure that your treatment is progressing as it should and that everything looks healthy.
Step 5: Retainers
With every new aligner that you put on you will start to notice a gradual difference in the position of your teeth. Most Invisalign treatment takes about a year; however, this varies depending on the severity of your case. Once your treatment process is up, you can replace your Invisalign aligners and start wearing a retainer to help maintain your new smile (your North York, ON dentist will give you specific instructions for wearing your retainers after treatment).
