Invisalign is a unique treatment in that it uses clear aligners made of plastic instead of brackets and wires to straighten teeth.
The clear aligners are customized to snugly fit over your teeth and make safe, gradual movements over time. You will change to a new set of aligners every two weeks to keep your treatment progressing as planned.
Because the aligners are clear, they are hardly noticeable; and because of their snug fit, they don't interfere with talking, smiling, or any of your other normal daily activities.
Dr. Wiedemann and Dr. Toy plan your treatment, and Invisalign creates a series of aligners that you will use to complete that treatment. Depending on your needs, most treatment plans with clear braces in South Calgary can be completed in around 12 to 18 months.
One of the primary benefits of choosing clear braces to straighten your teeth is, of course, discretion. Adults love the fact that they can straighten their teeth without anyone noticing.
Another advantage is that the aligners are removable. This means you can take them out for meals, brushing and flossing, and other significant events. Removable aligners make treatment easier, but remember that wearing your Invisalign aligners for at least 22 hours per day is the best way to keep your treatment on track.
