Why have some decided to pursue Invisalign in Coquitlam BC instead of traditional metal braces? How does Invisalign differ?
One teen with distractingly crooked front teeth provided this feedback: “I decided to go with Invisalign as I have always been very self-conscious of my smile, and felt as if traditional (metal) braces would only draw attention to something I was uncomfortable with.” He added that being able to remove the clear aligners in order to eat what he wanted was an additional bonus.
How does Invisalign work? Dr. Kara will start by taking your dental impressions, dental images and photographs. These are then submitted to Align Technology, allowing for a 3-D model to be created and a treatment plan mapped out. A series of clear aligners will then be designed specific to you.
Approximately every two weeks, simply graduate to the next prepared aligners and wear them 20-22 hours per day, removing only to eat, brush or floss. Typically within the year a transformed and beautiful smile will emerge!
The gradual easement of teeth into more optimum positions can occur so comfortably you may wonder if anything is happening. In no time however, spatial differences will be noticeable while flossing. Areas that were formerly tight will no longer feel that way. Isn’t this a more comfortable way of undergoing such vivid change?
