Invisalign® dental treatment may just be the clear choice to straighten your teeth
We Smile Dentistry has a teeth-straightening solution that fits into even the busiest, most active schedules. Invisalign® dental treatment in London, Ontario, designed and overseen by Dr. Giulio Spagnuolo, corrects crowded, crooked teeth and even moderate bite issues efficiently and discreetly.
The efficiency is in the Invisalign® aligners!
Conventional orthodontic treatment with braces involves a system of silver-coloured brackets and wires. These braces are affixed to the teeth. For treatment to progress, the patient returns to the dentist’s office regularly. The dentist then adjusts or changes the wires that are responsible for repositioning teeth.
Treatment with Invisalign® involves a series of aligners that are made to your specifications. The aligners resemble retainers. They slip over your teeth. Because they are made of clear, smooth plastic, Invisalign® aligners are not noticeable. They blend in with your smile. The plastic hugs the contours of your mouth snugly yet comfortably – no wires that poke at the inside of your mouth or are susceptible to breakage. Plus, the aligners may be removed! This means you can brush and floss with no problem. You can also eat most of the foods you have always enjoyed.
A pleasant experience, no sacrifice
Moreover, Invisalign® is clinically proven to straighten teeth. We have seen the transformation in our patients’ mouths. And, since 1999, more than 8 million patients worldwide have benefited from Invisalign® technology.
The series of aligners correspond with different stages of treatment. So, compliance is important. Every week, you exchange the current aligner for the next one in the series. Each aligner does its part to incrementally reposition your teeth. You can see your gradually straighter teeth through the transparent aligners.
Thanks to Invisalign® technology, you can also see your treated smile before the first aligner is worn. We Smile Dentistry wants to ensure you are comfortable with Invisalign® before committing to it; via specialized software, Dr. Spagnuolo shows you a virtual model of your smile. He will talk you through how your smile will gradually improve when the aligners are worn as prescribed. Since many people are visual learners, our patients appreciate this high-tech option. It helps them to make an informed decision about treatment.
A healthy partnership
The makers of Invisalign®, Align Technology, report that the average patient wears around 24 sets of aligners over the course of a year to get their goal smile. However, as with all treatments, Invisalign® is very patient-specific. Treatment time depends on factors such as the condition to be corrected and how consistently you wear the trays. We recommend keeping each aligner in your mouth for 20-22 hours a day, only removing them for meals and cleaning. For some conditions (and patients), other orthodontic systems may be more appropriate.
