What are Clear Aligner Therapies such as Invisalign?
Invisalign and other Clear Aligner Therapies are a teeth straightening system based on a series of orthodontic aligners that fit over the teeth. Our dentists working right here in the Beltline of Calgary will create an initial mold of your teeth and then work with various software to generate a treatment plan customized for you. Once this treatment plan is approved by you and by our dentist, we would fabricate them and ensure you know how to take care of them, the best ways to put them in as well as take them out. After that, we let the plastic do the work for whatever period of time your dentist recommends.
Your dentist will continue providing you with sets of aligners for as long as required. Some cases take 3 months, some can take years to get a great result. The end result will provide you with straight teeth, an improved smile, and often will enhance one’s confidence in appearance. Clear Aligner Therapies can be used by adults of all ages and teens as well.
