Why You May Want to Consider Trying Invisalign® Before Braces

Today, our Maple Ridge orthodontist shares some reasons why you may want to consider Invisalign before braces for straightening your smile. 


About Invisalign®

Invisalign is the discreet and convenient way to straighten your teeth without the hassle of traditional metal braces. Invisalign treatment consists of a series of clear custom aligners that are almost invisible when worn. So hardly anyone will notice that you're straightening your smile.

Invisalign's Personalized Treatment Plan

When you choose Invisalign for your orthodontic treatment, your dentist will create a personalized treatment plan to map out your unique orthodontic treatment schedule. During your treatment you will wear each set of custom aligners for approximately two weeks, before switching to the next set in your series. You will continue swapping out your aligners as directed by your dentist, until you reach the end of your treatment.

Benefits of Invisalign Over Braces

For many people, Invisalign clear aligners are the ideal orthodontic treatment option when compared to correcting orthodontic issues with braces. 

  • Invisalign can help to straighten the smiles of adults, teens and young children thanks to Invisalign's 3 specialized treatment options. Invisalign, Invisalign for Teens, and Invisalign First for children are designed to address the unique needs of each stage in dental development.
  • For patient's who are concerned about the aesthetic of traditional metal braces, Invisalign's clear plastic aligners can straighten teeth discretely. Invisalign's aligners are made from a thin clear plastic that can hardly be seen when worn.
  • Patient's who choose to straighten their teeth with Invisalign, won't need to give up enjoying any of their favourite foods. Invisalign aligners are removable. Take out the aligners and store them in their handy container whenever it's time to eat. After the meal is over simply brush and floss your teeth, rinse the aligners under water and pop them back in place. No need to skip the popcorn on movie night!
  • Unlike orthodontic treatment with metal braces, patient's who turn Invisalign clear custom aligners to straighten their teeth won't need to visit to the dentist for frequent adjustment appointments. Which means that throughout your Invisalign treatment, you will only need to visit the orthodontist for checkups and progress reviews about every 6 weeks.
