Have you ever wondered how Invisalign treatment straightens teeth without wires and brackets? Mississauga, ON, dentists Dr. Brian InvisalignKaplansky and Dr. Parneety Randhawa explain how the Invisalign process work and share some benefits of the innovative orthodontic treatment option.

Consistent pressure is the key

Changing the alignment of your teeth requires constant, gentle pressure. Adding a system of wires and brackets to the teeth is the time-honored way to correct orthodontic issues, but it's no longer the only option. When you wear wire or ceramic braces, subtle adjustments to the wires every four to six weeks help keep your treatment on schedule.

Because there are no wires with Invisalign, there's no need for adjustments. The Invisalign system uses removable aligner trays made out of clear plastic to realign your teeth. Your trays are designed based on a digital impression of your mouth. We'll consult a 3D image to create a series of trays that will address your bite, alignment or spacing issues.

Each tray in the set is designed to be worn for two weeks. Once you reach the end of the two-week period, you'll swap the set you've been wearing for a new set of trays. Trays should be worn for 20 to 22 hours per day.

Invisalign offers important benefits

If you choose Invisalign treatment, you'll enjoy these advantages:

  • Your appearance won't change when you wear your trays. Unlike metal or ceramic braces, Invisalign trays are virtually invisible.
  • Improved Comfort: Pain after adjustments and cut lips or cheeks due to loose wires, common problems when you wear metal or ceramic braces, aren't an issue with Invisalign.
  • Convenience: You'll immediately regret your choice if you eat popcorn or another forbidden food when you wear traditional braces. Sticky or hard foods are difficult to remove from wires and brackets and can easily damage them. Food restrictions aren't necessary with the Invisalign system because you'll remove your braces to brush, floss eat and drink.
  • Shorter Treatment Time for Adults: Treatment time can be as short as one year for adults. If you're a teen, treatment time typically won't change.
