More and more adults are turning to orthodontic treatment to correct crowded or crooked teeth. Perhaps they never had orthodontics during adolescence, or maybe they forgot to wear their retainer after treatment when they were younger.

With so many great orthodontic options for adults such as Invisalign, there is no reason for you to live with a smile you're not happy with. Here's what you should know about Invisalign.

Invisalign Straightens Your Teeth with Discretion in a Timely Manner

Invisalign offers something that traditional orthodontic does not –discretion. Instead of wearing metal brackets and wires, you wear smooth, clear plastic aligners. Because they fit snug against your teeth, they're comfortable to wear and hardly noticeable.

Most Invisalign cases can be completed in a matter of months instead of years, making them more efficient than traditional braces.

There Are No Restrictions With Invisalign

Because your aligners are removable, you don't have to change your diet as you would with traditional braces. Brushing and flossing are also more comfortable than trying to clean around brackets and wires. You also don't have to worry about the discomfort of metal wires or brackets poking into your cheeks or gums.

How Do I Know if I'm a Candidate for Invisalign?

Your team at Park Place Dental can help you determine if you're a candidate for Invisalign in Barrie, ON. While it works well for most patients, Invisalign can't correct complicated bite issues. Your dentist will take x-rays and photos of your teeth and also perform a thorough examination to determine if Invisalign will suit your needs.

If you move forward with Invisalign, with 3-D imaging, we can even show you what you finished smile will look like before you even start treatment.
