Invisalign® in Edson
Custom Made Aligners from Invisalign®
Can your teeth be straightened without the use of conventional metal braces? It used to be, the only option for straightening crooked and misaligned teeth was committing to a mouthful of metal wires and brackets for months, or even years, at a time. With Invisalign®, your provider uses advanced 3D computer imaging technology to create a map and projected movement pattern of your teeth, and then custom builds a series of clear aligners. These near-invisible aligners gradually reposition your teeth to their most optimal alignment, all the while no one even knows you are wearing them!
No Metal or Wires
Invisalign® uses no sharp metal brackets or wires and nothing is glued to your teeth. Simply wear your custom-made aligners and go about your day. Every two weeks or so you switch to a new set of aligners until your teeth are in their desired position. The total timeline is an individual one, depending on a number of factors including how many hours a day the aligners are worn and the extent of adjustment required. The aligners are removable for eating and drinking, or for that special date night or sporting activity, resulting in little to no interference in your daily life, unlike traditional braces.
Custom made, Invisalign® clear aligners are virtually invisible; made from a clear thermoplastic material.
Removable For Convenience
Removable aligners allow you to eat and drink in comfort, and make keeping your teeth and the appliance clean throughout the day a much easier task.
How Does Invisalign® Work?
Get Invisalign Working For You
A comprehensive oral exam, photos, and digital impressions taken during your initial Invisalign® consultation appointment will help determine whether Invisalign® is suitable for you. Once you and your dentist determine Invisalign® can offer the changes you want to see in your smile, we’ll map out your treatment plan and provide you with a customized series of aligner trays to take home.
Throughout the Invisalign® treatment process, you will wear a series of custom-made, nearly invisible, plastic aligner trays over your teeth all day, every day. The trays are only removed when you are eating, drinking, brushing and flossing your teeth, or engaged in certain sporting activities that could damage your aligners. Each pair of aligners is worn for about two weeks before you replace them with a new pair. As your teeth gradually and gently shift into the desired position, you will revisit us and repeat the aligner replacement process until you achieve final alignment. Invisalign® treatment time varies by patient, depending on the number of hours per day the trays are worn, and the amount of movement required, among other things.
