Invisalign in Hamilton - 860 Dental

Invisalign, offered at 860 Dental in Hamilton, is a revolutionary treatment that straightens teeth without needing traditional braces. Using clear, removable aligners, Invisalign gradually moves your teeth into the desired position, giving you a straighter, more confident smile.

Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign offers several advantages over traditional braces. The aligners are virtually invisible. They can also be removed easily, allowing you to eat and drink without restrictions. Additionally, Invisalign aligners are comfortable to wear. 

Invisalign vs. Braces

Compared to braces, Invisalign aligners are more comfortable and less noticeable. They also allow for easier oral hygiene maintenance; aligners can be removed for brushing and other activities.

How Invisalign Works

Invisalign uses a series of custom-made aligners to move your teeth gradually into the desired position. Each set of aligners is tentatively worn for about two weeks before being replaced with the next set.

Is Invisalign Treatment Painful?

While some patients may experience temporary discomfort or pressure when wearing a new set of aligners, Invisalign treatment is usually less painful than traditional braces.

Invisalign Treatment Plan

The first step in an Invisalign treatment plan is a consultation with an orthodontist at 860 Dental. During this consultation, your orthodontist will evaluate your teeth and create a custom treatment plan customized to your needs. The next step is the creation of your custom aligners, which are worn for about 20 to 22 hours per day. You will visit your orthodontist periodically to monitor your progress.

When is Invisalign the Best Option?

Invisalign is a great option for patients who want to straighten their teeth discreetly. It is especially beneficial for adults and teens who may feel self-conscious about wearing braces.

Why Choose Invisalign?

Invisalign offers several benefits, including its discreet appearance, comfort, and convenience. Also, Invisalign aligners are removable.

Prerequisites for Choosing Invisalign

To be a candidate for Invisalign, you must have healthy teeth and gums. Your orthodontist at 860 Dental will assess your suitability for treatment during your initial consultation.

Invisalign for Different Age Groups

Invisalign can be beneficial for patients of all ages. For children, Invisalign can help correct issues with tooth alignment and bite early on, preventing more severe problems in the future. Invisalign offers adults a convenient way to straighten their teeth without traditional braces.

Care and Maintenance Tips

To ensure the success of your Invisalign treatment, it is important to carefully follow up with your orthodontist's suggestions and instructions. This includes putting on your aligners for the recommended time each day and adequately cleaning them regularly.
