Providing Better Smiles to Calgary & nearby areas of Alberta
How long are Invisalign braces worn?
Your treatment time will depend on several factors, including the amount of movement needed to achieve straight teeth, your age, and the current condition of the teeth to be moved. On average, Invisalign braces treatments last about the same time as metal braces, and sometimes straightening can be achieved faster. Expect to wear the Invisalign plastic aligners between 12 and 18 months. To get a smile assessment and find out how much time you might need, schedule an Invisalign consultation with our Calgary dentist.
Do they really work?
If you have crowded teeth, gaps in your smile, an overbite, or another misalignment problem, Invisalign can help. Invisalign braces have helped many people in Alberta and around the world. Finally patients can have the straight smile they’ve always envisioned.
Are Invisalign braces comfortable?
Compared to metal braces, Invisalign clear braces offer a world of difference in the comfort department. There’s no risk of catching the metal on lip tissue, and the aligners are removable, which means you can periodically remove them to eat or floss. You may experience mild discomfort when new aligners are attached, but this should subside quickly. Remember, the aligners are gradually moving your teeth into their ideal position, so a little bit of pressure or soreness is normal.
