Discouraged by how your teeth look? Perhaps you had braces as a teen, but time and not wearing a retainer have combined to shift your teeth into unattractive positions. Or, maybe you never had the opportunity to get your teeth straightened.

Now, you are an adult with a profession to maintain. Could orthodontics work for the career person? Do you need to have those wire bracketsInvisalign and wires? Is there a better way to get a straight, winning smile without the traditional hardware?

Invisalign Clear Aligners

Your answer could be Invisalign Clear Aligners. Perfect for older teens and adults who want exceptional smiles without lengthy treatment and traditional wires and brackets, the Invisalign aligners are crafted from clear, BPA-free plastic. They are custom moulded according to an impression of the patient's teeth for a perfect fit.

Candidates for Invisalign

Only complex orthodontic problems disqualify an individual from Invisalign. The system is versatile, treating over-, under and cross-bite problems, spacing and crowding issues and also relapse from previous orthodontic treatment.

How It Works

After taking x-rays and impressions, a dental lab makes several sets of aligners. The patient sees his Winnipeg dentist every 4 to 6 weeks, receiving new sets of aligners. Each set accomplishes a different task in moving the teeth into correct positions. Typically, treatment takes 9 to 18 months, and afterwards, a retainer stabilizes teeth in their corrected positions.

Why Professionals Enjoy Invisalign

The advantages of Invisalign are many, including discreet appearance, gentle movement and ability to remove the aligners to eat, brush floss and even have pictures taken! Invisalign is comfortable and smooth against sensitive oral issues, and individuals can eat whatever healthy food they like.

Compliance with wearing the aligners is essential, and younger people may need help with wearing their appliances for the right amount of time. Invisalign helps with discipline by crafting coloured compliance tabs into the aligners. The wear pattern on the tabs tells patients and doctors how much the aligners are worn.

First Impressions Count

A great-looking smile is advantageous in the workplace. In fact, a 2012 study conducted by Kelton research showed that North Americans think people with straighter teeth are more likely to land a job than those with smile alignment issues. So, treatment with Invisalign can keep teeth and gums healthy, and also help individuals project a better self-image.
