Invisalign in Orleans

Braces have been a way to correct teeth alignments for centuries, but with constant change in the methodology and advancements in medical practices, giving people beautiful smiles through braces has become a lot more convenient. Changes introduced to the basic design of the braces have in fact removed most unwanted side effects associated with the older designs.


What is Invisalign Invisible Braces?

Invisalign works by creating clear plastic moulds of your teeth, which are made from a patented thermoplastic material referred to as “SmartTrack.” Our cosmetic dentists in Orleans create them digitally using our Invisalign 3D scanner, and several moulds are created. 


Is Invisalign as good as metal braces?

Invisalign is not recommended for more complex and difficult types of orthodontic cases. However, for most adults and many adolescents who want to straighten their teeth without the stigma of metal braces, Invisalign is a great alternative. 


Is Invisalign a permanent solution?

The simple answer is yes, Invisalign is a permanent solution. Our dentists in Orleans will work with you to create a permanent straight smile. The only reason as to why your teeth will go back to misalignment is if you don’t take care of them properly. For example, if you don’t use your Invisalign braces every day, your teeth will likely create gaps in between or form misalignments. 


Is Invisalign more painful than braces?

Invisalign is significantly less painful than braces. Most people report discomfort for the first few days of wearing the trays and some tenderness, but when compared to the agony of metal braces, Invisalign wins for being less painful. Invisalign at our Orleans dental centre does not use such forceful ways of placing brackets and tightening wires on your teeth like how we would with metal braces. 


What are the pros and cons of Invisalign braces?

The most notable problem with metal braces is their looks. Invisalign Invisible braces aim to remove this problem and make braces aesthetically superior, while still keeping the functional value intact. There are several reasons which contribute to the success of these braces:

  • The invisible body is a big plus point, especially when compared with the metal structure of the traditional braces. It grants patients the confidence to be socially active, without being hesitant.   
  • They are convenient to use as you can remove them while brushing teeth or eating.
  • Easy to clean, they help maintain oral hygiene.
  • Invisalign Invisible braces are comfortable to wear as they are lightweight aligners, which are customised to fit perfectly.
  • They do not compromise the well being of roots.
