Invisalign Toronto

Invisalign® takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. The aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete. You'll achieve a great smile with little interference in your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that most people won't even know you're straightening your teeth.

Prior to committing to treatment, our patients will have a digital visual of what their teeth will look like during & after treatment, as well as an estimated treatment length.

TREATABLE CASES

Is Invisalign® treatment appropriate for you? For the majority of cases, the answer is yes. Invisalign treatment is clinically proven to be effective for a broad range of teeth straightening cases, from mild to complex.
These are some common concerns our dentists treat with Invisalign clear aligners in Toronto:

Invisalign Toronto

Gaps between Teeth

Gaps between teeth can occur with abnormal growth of the jawbone. Missing teeth can also cause surrounding teeth to shift due to the space creating gaps in your teeth. Spacing issues and gaps between teeth can lead to gum problems (due to lack of protection by the teeth), periodontal pockets and increased risk of periodontal disease.

Open Bite

Open bite often occurs when some teeth are unable to make physical contact with the opposing teeth for a proper bite. Most often caused by a genetic abnormal jaw structure or excessive thumb-sucking, an open bite can cause poor or painful chewing, and even speech impairment. It can also lead to greater issues like temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ).

Overbite

Overbite occurs when the upper teeth bite over the lower teeth. It’s typically caused by genetics, bad oral habits, or overdevelopment of the bone that supports the teeth. This can lead to gum problems or irritation, and/or wear on the lower teeth, and can cause painful jaw and joint problems.

Crossbite

Crossbite can occur when the upper and lower jaws are both misaligned. It causes one or more upper teeth to bite on the inside of the lower teeth, and can happen on both the front and the sides of the mouth. This can cause wear of the teeth, gum disease and bone loss.

Invisalign Toronto

Overly Crowded

Teeth crowding occurs when there is simply a lack of room within your jaw for all of your teeth to fit normally. When left untreated, overly crowded teeth can get worse over time, and result in severely crooked teeth. This crowding can lead to plaque accumulation, tooth decay and an increased chance of gum disease.

Invisalign Toronto

Underbite

Underbite can occur when the lower teeth protrude past the front teeth. It’s usually caused by undergrowth of the upper jaw, overgrowth of the lower jaw, or both. It can also be caused by missing upper teeth. This can prevent the normal function of front teeth or molars, which can lead to tooth wear. It can also cause painful jaw and joint problems.

Benefits of Invisalign over metal braces

  • Invisalign is virtually invisible. Most people won't even notice that you are wearing aligners, unlike metal braces that are clearly visible.
  • Invisalign aligners are removable, allowing you to eat and drink what you want. It also allows for easier brushing and flossing, and minimizes the risk of plaque build-up.
  • With Invisalign, most treatments are faster than with traditional braces.
  • With Invisalign, patients undergo a fully planned and computerized treatment so they know what to expect and how long they will need to wear aligners for.
