Straighten teeth and improve your smile with Invisalign!
At Humewood Dental on St. Clair West, we offer Invisalign as an alternative to traditional braces. Invisalign creates custom-fitted removable trays which are changed about every two weeks, progressively straightening, aligning and improving your smile. The Invisalign aligners are clear and virtually unnoticeable to those around you.
Although the most common use of Invisalign is to straighten teeth, there are a few other issues that it can fix. For example, if you have gaps between your teeth, Invisalign can reduce the gap and decrease the risk of tooth decay. Invisalign can also help with crowding, overbites, and crossbites.
During the treatment, you will need to replace the custom-fit plastic aligners every 2 weeks and visit us every 6 weeks to monitor progress. Typically, Invisalign treatment lasts about 1 year and you will have an improved smile in no time!
There are other advantages to Invisalign beyond the aesthetic nature of the treatment:
- The removable trays allow for easier cleaning and oral hygiene practices
- Normal brushing and flossing regimens can be maintained
- Trays can be removed when eating
- Irritation from metal braces is avoided
- Properly aligned teeth aid in speech, chewing, gum and bone health
