Invisalign Clear Braces

Orthodontics is a dental treatment involving the diagnosis and treatment where teeth may be crooked or over crowded in the mouth. Crooked teeth my cause several problems and cause difficulties when biting, for example underbite or overbite.

At Westdale Dental, we use the Invisalign® Clear Braces system that is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and improve your smile without the need for fixed braces.

Using a series of clear aligners, that may be removed at any time, your teeth will gradually move and give you the smile that you have always wanted.

What is Invisalign®?

Comfortable, convenient and highly effective, the virtually invisible aligners gradually reposition your teeth into a smile you will be proud of. Proven effective in clinical research and used in orthodontic and dental practices throughout the world, Invisalign® can give you beautifully straight teeth in a safe and proven way.

How does Invisalign® work?

Based on your Westdale Invisalign® Dentist's (Lynne Jones) diagnosis, a series of aligners are custom made in a laboratory using advanced 3D computer imaging technology.

Each Invisalign® aligner is worn for 2 weeks, removing them only to eat drink, brush and floss.

As each Invisalign® aligner is replaced, gradual movement of the teeth occur resulting in a straighter smile.

You will need to visit us every 4-6 weeks so that we can ensure all necessary movements are occurring.

On average Invisalign® treatment lasts 6 to 15 months.

Do dentists need special training in order to use Invisalign®?

While Invisalign® can be used with virtually any treatment philosophy, specific training is needed. All orthodontists and dentists interested in treating patients with Invisalign® must attend training before cases will be accepted from their office.

Close to 30,000 orthodontists and dentists worldwide are certified to use Invisalign®.

How does Invisalign® effectively move teeth?

Like brackets and arch wires are to braces, Invisalign® aligners move teeth through the appropriate placement of controlled force on the teeth. The principal difference is that Invisalign® not only controls forces, but also controls the timing of the force application. At each stage, only certain teeth are allowed to move, and these movements are determined by the orthodontic treatment plan for that particular stage. This results in an efficient force delivery system.

Invisalign® can help to treat a variety of orthodontic concerns including teeth which are crooked, crowded or with gaps - but because it is clear, removable and comfortable, it won't interfere with your life.
