Invisalign®An Overview

Invisalign® is a clear aligner braces system that offers a discreet and comfortable option for straightening crooked teeth. During Invisalign treatment, patients wear a series of custom-designed clear plastic aligners in progression. Patients enjoy gradual results for improved oral health and aesthetics.

Sudbury Dental Arts is a Sudbury area Invisalign provider. We offer patients Invisalign treatment to address cosmetic and functional orthodontic concerns.

Invisalign Aligners Can Treat:

Invisalign is an ideal orthodontic treatment option for teens and adult patients with mild to moderate orthodontic concerns. Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible so patients do not have to worry about feeling self-conscious of their smiles during treatment. Patients are able to remove their aligners so that they may enjoy a diet without restriction. The removable aligners also allow patients to continue their good at-home oral hygiene routine. This prevents the increase of tooth decay and discoloration often typical with traditional metal braces.

Benefits of Invisalign

  • Improved oral hygiene

  • Decreased risk of tooth decay
  • Comfortable to wear
  • Nearly invisible

Invisalign® What to Expect

Using digital imaging, your Sudbury dentist will take images of your teeth and jaw. These digital images are sent to a state of the art Invisalign lab where your aligners will be fabricated.

Your Sudbury dentist will determine the appropriate length of wear for each set of your aligners. Aligners are worn in succession and gradually shift teeth into alignment. Each set of aligners are typically worn for two-week intervals for the duration of about 12 months. Treatment times will vary depending on the extent of misalignment.

It is never too late to address your orthodontic concerns. For many patients, Invisalign is an ideal treatment for orthodontic relapse that often occurs later on in life. Straight, properly aligned teeth promote improved overall oral health and can help alleviate painful TMJ symptoms. Wearing Invisalign aligners makes it easier for patients to maintain bright and healthy smiles.
