Invisalign® Treatment in Calgary

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.

Is Invisalign® the Right Choice?

Once a thorough dental examination has been performed by one of our dentists, we will be able to tell you if Invisalign would be an appropriate option for your particular case. While traditional braces are still widely used, and rightfully so, Invisalign is emerging as a highly effective alternative, without the high maintenance requirements and discomfort, associated with braces. As a matter of fact, Invisalign treatment is now a solution for many patients with the following straightening issues:

  • Overcrowded Teeth
  • Widely Spaced Teeth
  • Cross Bites
  • Over Bites
  • Under Bites

Your candidacy for this treatment can only be determined through a comprehensive dental exam, so book an appointment with one of Go Dental’s general dentists today to get started.

How Does Invisalign® Work?

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:

  • You wear each aligner for approximately two weeks, before moving on to the next (ideally you should only be removing the aligner to brush, floss, eat, and drink).
  • As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth gradually shift until they have straightened to the final position prescribed.
  • Throughout the process, you will be required to visit our dental clinic occasionally to ensure your treatment is on track.
  • Once the entire plan is complete, your teeth should closely resemble the final, agreed-upon result your dentist showed you during your initial consultation.

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.
