Uneven teeth are often a cause of self-consciousness for people of all ages, and the days of metal braces as the single effective method of straightening your teeth are over. The dentists at Calgary’s Go Dental now provide qualified patients with Invisalign® treatment as an alternative to traditional braces, which can help gradually straighten teeth with the use of virtually invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners.

Invisalign® relies on a treatment plan consisting of a set of clear aligners that gradually straighten teeth without the use of wires. In order to create your treatment plan, our dentists will begin by taking an impression of your teeth. Once the impression is complete, the data is entered into specialized computer software that projects the gradual movements your teeth will make over the course of the plan. This software will be able to show you how your teeth will shift and will even be able to show you approximately what the end result will resemble before you even begin.
After this initial procedure is complete, you will receive a set of personalized, clear aligner trays, which are generally meant to be worn in two-week increments. The process is actually quite simple, and it works like this:
Duration of treatment will vary depending on the severity. Generally speaking, most treatments take approximately one year, and consist of the use of about 20 aligners.
