How Do Invisalign® Clear Braces Work?
Invisalign from our Oshawa dental office are a personalized way to straighten your teeth since they are custom made just for you. An alternative to metal braces for teen and adults, Invisalign clear aligners are truly invisible while fitting snugly over your teeth without wires or bands. Instead, they are made of Invisalign’s multilayer SmartTrack® material that can shift crooked, crowded or badly aligned teeth into place.
Each aligner shifts your teeth slightly to move them horizontally and vertically into proper place. The aligners can even gently rotate teeth when needed. This process works because your aligners will be custom engineered to right amount of pressure in the right place as the right time.
Throughout your Invisalign treatment, you change from one set of aligners to the next – usually every week – until they gradually move into position. Dr. Popa and her staff at Oshawa Dentist: Dr. Sciuk & Associates will map out your custom plan and treatment schedule according to your needs.
Are You a Good Candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign treatment is appropriate for many teen and adult dental patients. From mild to complex alignment problems, Invisalign has been clinically proven effective in straightening teeth. More than 4 million patients have experienced the advantages of Invisalign, with even more innovations to come in the future.
