If you have had braces in the past or know someone who has, then you’ll also know there’s a seemingly endless list of foods you can’t eat or drink. Anything sticky, sugary, gummy or hard is on the “don’t eat” list. Everything from chewing gum to carrot sticks may be a no-go with braces.
Invisalign and Invisalign Teen
Invisalign is an innovative orthodontic system that uses a series of custom-made trays to gently guide your teeth from their current position to where they need to be so you can get the smile you’ve always wanted. The clear trays are made of a high quality, clear plastic which makes them nearly invisible: a great choice for a busy professional or if you want to subtly change your appearance.
Another Invisalign benefit? They’re removable. You’ll wear them for 22 hours a day, but you can take them out when you’re eating or if you’re drinking anything other than water. You wear each set of trays for around two weeks, and then change them for a slightly different set of aligners. Over time, these subtle changes cause your teeth to move slowly into their new positions, making Invisalign a more comfortable choice for some patients.
When you get Invisalign from Docbraces, we use advanced technology to ensure accurate, better fitting trays. In some of our locations, we have a 3D scanner that eliminates the need for traditional impressions. Precision is important when creating these moulds, because it can mean a shorter treatment period.
Docbraces is one of Atlantic Canada’s leading Invisalign experts; in fact, we’re a Top 1% Invisalign Provider! This designation puts us in the top 1% of providers in North America and means we’ve used Invisalign to successfully treat more Invisalign cases than 99% of all other Doctors in North America. We are also the only Top 1% Invisalign Provider in both New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island, and we’re very proud of it.
We’ve dedicated ourselves to spending more time than anyone in continued education so we can deliver the best available care to you. Our extensive history with this system also allows us to treat more complex cases than many other providers.
