Top Invisalign Benefits: Virtually Invisible Teeth Straightening

  1. Virtually invisible.Unlike metal braces, which can negatively impact your quality of life and lifestyle, Invisalign will have virtually no impact. Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible and removable. There’s no fear of walking into a business meeting as an adult and embarrassing yourself with a mouthful of metal. Since Invisalign is removable, you can even take the aligners out for important events like weddings, graduations or family photos. No one needs to know about your “secret” for straighter teeth!
  2. Enjoy all your favourite foods.When you wear braces, you have to avoid eating certain foods that can be sticky or are too hard. Worse, even favourite indulgences like poutine can end up in disaster when tiny bits of cheese curds and gravy create a sticky mess in your braces– no one wants to find food “after the fact”. Yuck! With Invisalign, you can remove your aligners any time you eat or drink. This means you can still enjoy all your favourite foods without worrying about food getting stuck in your braces. For best results, patients should wear Invisalign aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day.
  3. Safe and BPA-free.The retainers used by our Halifax orthodontist for Invisalign treatment do not contain Bisphenol-A or phthalate plasticizers. All our aligners and retainers are made with USP Class VI medical-grade, high molecular weight, polyurethane resins. These retainers are safe and effective.
  4. Personalized plans just for you.At Docbraces, our Smile Team creates a personalized treatment plan designed specifically for your needs. We work with every patient to understand their goals and ensure they are comfortable and confident in our treatment plans. After treatment is complete, our Halifax orthodontist provides ongoing care to help you maintain your healthy smile. This includes Vivera retainers that will help prevent your teeth from moving again.

How Halifax Invisalign Treatment Works

Invisalign is a safe, effective technique for straightening teeth that uses virtually invisible aligners. A series of aligners are custom made for each patient. These aligners subtly move teeth in a sequence determined by your Halifax orthodontist. Over time, the aligners straighten your teeth, correct gaps in spacing, and bring your teeth into correct alignment with your jaw. Every aligner makes slight adjustments to your tooth position. During each phase, only certain teeth are allowed to move. This combination of force and timing is critical to helping you achieve your dream smile without the need for uncomfortable metal braces. You will use a new set of aligners every two weeks to continue the straightening process.
