Fast, Convenient, and Practically Invisible

Crowded or crooked teeth are not only unsightly, but they also lead to a host of oral health complications. While traditional braces have been the go-to orthodontic treatment option for patients over the years, these days, more and more are turning to clear aligners to achieve that picture-perfect smile. Among the many clear aligner systems on the market, Invisalign remains the most trusted.

Invisalign’s advanced clear aligner system utilizes a series of custom-crafted clear trays to correct teeth in as little as six months. These trays are practically invisible and can be easily taken out when eating, drinking, or posing for pictures.

At Guelph Family Dentistry, we model our Invisalign trays with precise 3D digital scans of a patient’s teeth. This allows us to create custom-molded trays that match the exact shape and contours of your teeth to effectively guide them into the correct position over the course of your treatment.

Straighter Teeth for a Better Smile and Improved Oral Health

While straighter teeth make for an attractive smile, they’re also crucial for maintaining good oral health. Crowded or misaligned teeth contribute to the following dental issues:

  • Chipped front teeth.
  • Tooth loss.
  • Food sticking between teeth.
  • Difficulty flossing and cleaning between teeth.
  • Increased risk of cavities.
  • Gum disease – can increase your risk for several systemic health problems such as Heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, Arthritis, and Increased risk of stroke.

Invisalign corrects these issues by strengthening teeth and shifting them into proper alignment, resulting in a longer-lasting, healthier-looking smile.

The Best Time to Start Your Invisalign Treatment

Teeth are constantly shifting. The longer you wait to correct your crowded, crooked, or misaligned teeth, the worse your dental condition will get. That’s why the best time to start your orthodontic treatment is as soon as possible.

If you’re putting off your Invisalign treatment because of the cost, our staff at Guelph Family Dentistry will gladly discuss payment options and financing with you to find a rate that fits your budget.

The Invisalign Treatment Process

Invisalign’s treatment plan is intuitive and easy to manage. Most of the process can be completed from the comfort of your own home, requiring only a few trips to our dental office in Guelph to ensure the treatment is going as planned. In case of emergencies, or concerns, you can always reach Guelph Family Dentistry by phone.

Your Treatment Plan

We begin your Invisalign treatment by taking 3D digital scans of your teeth using Invisalign’s advanced imaging software. This digital impression will be used to accurately predict how your teeth will change over time with Invisalign. Once your digital plan is finalized, your custom aligners are made using Invisalign’s state-of-the-art printing process.

The Aligners

Special fasteners are sometimes necessary to keep your Invisalign aligners in place. These fasteners are temporarily bonded to your teeth and make it easy to clip your aligners in and take them out again. These fasteners are practically as invisible as the aligners and they come off at the end of your treatment.

Follow-Up Appointments

We will provide you with each set of clear aligners to wear for about two weeks. Your teeth will shift into place a little at a time as the aligners are changed for the next in the series until your teeth have been moved into their final, correct position. Visits to the office will be scheduled roughly once every 1-2 months to ensure that the treatment is going as planned.

Frequently Asked Questions

Invisalign is both more comfortable and more discrete than braces. The clear custom-fit trays are hardly noticeable and most people won’t even realize you’re wearing them. Plus, they can be removed for important presentations or dates! The clear trays are also smooth against the inside of your mouth and don’t pinch or scratch like the brackets from braces. If your trays rub on your gums, they can be easily adjusted. Invisalign trays exert a gentler pressure compared to braces and only shift a few teeth at a time. That makes Invisalign orthodontics far more comfortable than conventional methods.
Invisalign makes changes to your teeth very gradually. Minor changes can be made in a few short weeks with little discomfort, and more complex changes can occur over a longer span of time to ensure you stay as comfortable as possible. There may be some discomfort, but if your Invisalign hurts, let us know.
On average, it takes anywhere from 6 to 12 months for your teeth to move into the correct position with Invisalign. Most people start noticing some movement, however, within the first 6 weeks after getting their first set of aligner trays. The more changes you would like to see, the longer it will take no matter what orthodontic option you choose.
Twice a day, remove your tray and clean it and your teeth before putting it back in. If you take your aligner out at any time, always rinse it before you put it back in, and try not to let it sit in open air when you aren’t wearing it. You may soak your aligners in denture cleaner or Invisalign cleaning crystals and carefully rinse them before putting them back in your mouth. Do not eat or drink with your trays in, and do not use toothpaste to clean your trays. We will provide you with detailed home care instructions when you receive your first trays.
Don't eat with your aligners in your mouth. If you expose your aligners to the strong chewing forces that your teeth are trained to exert, you can damage or even crack your aligners, plus it's just messy and not easy to eat with Invisalign in your mouth.
Yes, even when you sleep. They should be worn all day and night, except when eating and drinking. Your clear aligners won't work if they're not constantly shifting your teeth over time, which means you've gotta wear them!
