Clear aligner trays, or invisible braces, such as Invisalign have become popular treatment methods for patients who want alternative teeth straightening options. Located in Woodbridge, ON, Dr. Vageesh Sabharwal and his dental team offer orthodontic treatments including Invisalign aligner trays.
What are aligner trays?
Made of clear plastic, Invisalign trays are created for each patient based on impressions of the teeth. The trays are fabricated to fit snugly around your teeth to avoid movement and to ensure comfort. Using gentle pressure, the trays gradually shift the teeth into alignment. A series of trays is used. Each set of trays is worn for a couple weeks and then discarded so a new set can be worn. The placement of pressure is different with the new trays to promote continual movement. Aligner trays are appropriate for patients who need mild to moderate orthodontic correction.
Orthodontics improve the function and appearance of your teeth.
Keep your teeth straight and healthy with orthodontic treatments. Teeth that are crooked, crowded, or misaligned have more hard to reach areas making it easy for bacteria and tartar to accumulate. Straighter teeth are easier to keep clean with regular brushing and flossing. Orthodontic treatments do not only improve the appearance of your smile by straightening the teeth. They also improve the function as properly aligned teeth have a better bite.
