Our BC Straight Smile dentists offer Invisalign® clear aligners as a low-profile way to straighten smiles without the need for traditional metal braces. So, how will your Invisalign treatment impact your day-to-day life?
Enjoy Life to The Fullest
Invisalign's clear aligners are designed to conveniently fit your lifestyle, not interrupt it.
Not only that - because the aligners are made from a thin, clear plastic, you’ll be able to see and enjoy your smile as it transforms.
Continue Eating the Foods You Love
Traditional metal braces require extra care when it comes to choosing which foods to eat, but Invisalign aligners are removable so you won't need to give up the foods you love while you straighten your smile. Simply remove your aligners whenever you eat. Once you're finished, clean your teeth and put your aligners back in place.
Allow Your Music to Come Alive
Whether you sing or play a wind instrument, with Invisalign you will be able to continue your regular musical activities without missing a beat. If wearing your aligners interferes with your musical abilities, just remove them while you sing or play, then clean your teeth and put your Invisalign aligners back in place when you're done.
Have The Best Game of Your Life
Do you play contact sports? No problem, take your aligners out and store them in their convenient case during practices and games. While you're playing sports be sure to wear a sports mouth guard to protect your teeth, then once the game is over, clean your teeth and return your aligners to your mouth. There's no need to give up sports while straightening your smile.
Show Off Your Healthy Smile
When you straighten your smile with traditional metal braces extra care is needed to prevent food particles and plaque from building up around the brackets and wires. With Invisalign, just remove your aligners to brush and floss as usual, then give your aligners a gentle clean and pop them back in place.
Don't Worry About Adjustment Appointments
With Invisalign clear aligners no adjustments are necessary, you just change to the next set of aligners in your series as prescribed by your dentist. That said, you will need to visit your dentist every 6-8 weeks during your treatment to allow your dentist to monitor your progress and adjust your treatment if required.
No Fretting About Broken Brackets or Wires
Brackets and wires that come with traditional metal braces can break, but with Invisalign clear aligners there are no brackets and wires. That can mean fewer mishaps and fewer emergency trips to the orthodontist's office for repairs.
