If you are looking for a better smile and straighter teeth without the awkward metal wires, let us introduce you to Invisalign!
What is Invisalign and how does it work?
The Invisalign System is a series of clear orthodontic appliances, called aligners that allow you to straighten your teeth without having to wear traditional braces. Each pair of aligners in the series is worn in two-week increments (removing them only to eat, drink, brush and floss) and moves the teeth in gradual steps to the desired final position.
Like traditional metal wire braces, Invisalign effectively treats many different dental issues such as straightening the teeth, crowding, spacing, crossbite, overbite and underbite.
What are the primary benefits of using Invisalign?
- Undetectable: The clear aligners are virtually invisible to others.
- Removable: The aligners are removable for eating, brushing and flossing.
- Comfortable: The aligners are comfortable to wear, since there are no brackets, wires or permanent fixtures.
Because Invisalign braces can be removed any time, there are no foods that need to be given up. With traditional braces, wearers are recommended not to eat popcorn corn on the cob, pizza crusts, bagels, hard crusted bread and some candies. None of these are a problem with Invisalign.
Many people find them much more comfortable because the smooth plastic will not scratch the inside of your mouth as metal braces can.
Best of all, the device is almost invisible!
Cost of Invisalign in Vancouver BC
The cost of treatment with Invisalign braces is comparable to the cost of wire braces. The cost will of course depend on the type of treatment required, how long the treatment will take as well as your orthodontic insurance coverage. Many dental insurance plans cover Invisalign and payment plan options with your dentist are often available.
Hundreds of thousands of people have already improved their smile with Invisalign. Maybe it’s time you were one of them.
