Providing Better Smiles to Calgary & nearby areas of Alberta
Invisalign is a comfortable and effective way for many teens and adults with tooth crowding and spaces to bring their smiles into proper alignment.
If you’re considering a teeth-straightening treatment for yourself of your teen, please call the Southcentre Dental Clinic at 403-278-1415 to schedule your Invisalign consultation. Calgary dentist Dr. Steven Cload can assess your condition and help you determine if Invisalign is the best solution for your unique needs.
Creating Your Invisalign Treatment Plan
Prior to beginning your Invisalign treatment, Dr. Cload will take X-rays, images and impressions of your teeth. This information will be used to create a 3-D image of your mouth.
Your personal treatment plan will be mapped out based on these physical and digital models, and will include the movements of your teeth necessary to achieve a beautifully aligned smile. Invisalign will then employ this data to create your series of custom-made aligners.
Invisalign aligners are made of clear, smooth, dental-grade plastic that are barely noticeable, a fact that makes them preferable for many patients. The aligners fit snugly over your teeth and can be easily removed for meals and cleaning.
Each series of aligners features minor alterations that are designed to progressively shift your teeth into the desired position. You swap out the aligners on your own at home approximately once every two weeks, according to your individual treatment program. Invisalign treatment typically takes about 12 – 18 months, though treatment time varies.
