As an Invisalign provider, we get many enquiries about Invisalign at our Barrie, ON dental clinic, and one of the most common is how this orthodontic treatment works.
Invisalign works with a series of clear plastic trays that are custom-made just for you. The aligners fit over your teeth and gently nudge the teeth into the desired position. In most cases treatment takes about six to 18 months, which is quite a bit faster than traditional metal wire and bracket braces.
The clear plastic aligners are virtually invisible; someone seated across the table from you will probably not even notice you are wearing them. This makes them ideal for adults and older teens who might feel self-conscious about traditional orthodontics.
How to Care for Teeth During Invisalign Treatment
Caring for your teeth while undergoing Invisalign is also easy. The removable trays mean you can brush and floss just as you could before getting treatment. Eating is always simple with no restrictions since the aligners are removed while you eat.
One of the most crucial factors about Invisalign treatment at our Barrie, ON dental clinic is compliance. You must commit to wearing the aligners for at least 22 hours per day, or you may not reach your treatment goals.
