Invisalign is known to many as the easier, less noticeable option for braces. Most people know that Invisalign are clear trays used to straighten teeth and correct bite issues, but do not know much more than that. Luckily, your Mississauga, Ontario dentist can help take Invisalignyou step by step through the Invisalign procedure.

Before Invisalign
Most people who have misaligned teeth or bite issues, such as crossbite, overbite or underbite, are good candidates for Invisalign. First, a consultation takes place between you and your dentist. This appointment serves to ensure that Invisalign is a great option for you. It is also your time to ask any questions or voice any concerns you may have.

Once the consultation is complete, molds and x-rays will be taken of the mouth and used by your dentist to map out a game plan for your treatment. Your Invisalign aligner trays will be made specifically for your teeth, and carefully created to ensure your teeth and bite are corrected properly.

How Invisalign works
A series of clear aligner trays are used to move the teeth and align the jaw. The trays are replaced in succession by the next tray in the series about every two weeks, according to your treatment plan. Since the trays are removable, eating, playing sports, and keeping up with your dental hygiene routine are all just as easy as they were before braces. It is important to remember to remove the trays to brush and floss twice daily. The trays should also be brushed so that they are kept clean and bacteria free.

The aligner trays should be worn all the time, with the only exceptions being when you are eating, drinking, or they are being cleaned. This means that results boil down to willpower and commitment to wearing your aligner trays. You will have dental check ups every four to six weeks so your dentist can be sure that your course of Invisalign is going according to plan.

If you are considering Invisalign, Dr. Brian Kaplansky, Dr. Parneety Randhawa and the staff at Creditview Dental in Mississauga, Ontario can help. Call (905) 826-4929 to schedule your consultation today!
