Invisalign® Clear, Removable Braces in Mississauga
At Kerhoulas Dental in Mississauga we provide Invisalign® clear braces for patients looking to straighten their smiles.
What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® uses a series of clear, removable aligners. It is made with 3D computer imaging technology, allowing us to make aligners that are custom-fit to your teeth.
Benefits of Invisalign®
Unlike traditional fixed braces, you can remove your Invisalign aligners whenever you wish.
The removable aligners mean you can continue to enjoy your favourite food and drink without the restrictions.
You can also brush and floss your teeth as usual.
There is a potentially shorter treatment time than traditional braces.
How does Invisalign® work?
Invisalign® is a series of sets of aligners you wear for about one to two weeks each, removing them only to eat, drink, brush and floss.
As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to their final positions. You’ll visit us about once every six weeks to ensure your treatment is progressing as planned.
Total treatment time typically lasts 9 to 15 months, and the number of sets of aligners is between 18 and 30, but this could vary.
A Few More Benefits of Invisalign®
Invisalign® aligners are clear
Since the aligners are clear, people may not even notice you are wearing them.
Invisalign® is removable
You have the flexibility to eat and drink what you want during treatment simply by removing the aligners when you eat.
You can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and good oral hygiene.
No metal brackets
Invisalign® does not use metal brackets or wires and you’ll spend less time in the dentist's chair.
See virtual results
Invisalign® allows you to view your virtual results and treatment plan before you start your treatment, so you can preview how your teeth will look once your treatment is complete.
