Here at Beacon Smiles Dental, we truly care about your smile. If you thought that orthodontic treatment meant having to endure a mouthful of metal for long periods of time then you might want to think again! If you are looking for an alternative to teeth straightening without using braces for your Orthodontic treatment, then Invisalign could be your solution. Not only are the Invisalign aligners virtually invisible but it’s easily removable, making it the most discreet brace system on the market.
Unlike other orthodontic appliances which consist of a single brace worn for the entire duration of your treatment, the Invisalign system incorporates multiple aligners. Each bespoke aligner is fashioned from lightweight clear acrylic and is made specifically to fit your mouth. As it’s worn over the teeth like an invisible gum shield, natural forces apply to move the teeth a fraction of an inch. When the teeth have been moved to the desired position, that particular aligner is discarded and the next one in the series is worn. The whole process is repeated until the desired effect has been reached. Treatment can take up to 2 years, but typically patients will have straighter teeth within 12-18 months.

Unlike metal braces the Invisalign aligners are made of clear translucent plastic called SmartTrack, which make it the perfect option for those looking to straighten their teeth without having others notice.
Unlike traditional braces that can often cause discomfort, Invisalign is made of a flexible soft plastic which makes it comfortable to wear and designed to reduce irritation.
With removable aligners, you avoid having to deal with wires or metal brackets which inhibit you from your traditional brushing and flossing habits.
It is common for patients who have metal braces to refrain from eating certain foods they previously enjoyed due to the possibility of damaging brackets or wires. With Invisalign clear aligners, you can remove them at ease during meals and maintain your usual diet during treatment.
With our FREE consultation, our dentists will sit down with you to discuss your needs and see if Invisalign is the right orthodontic treatment for you.
Using our iTero® digital scanning system, we will create a precise 3D digital render of your smile. Our dentists use will use this scan to show you exactly how your teeth will look after you complete your Invisalign treatment. We will also map out a treatment plan, which will outline the exact teeth movements and the duration of your treatment.

With your new aligners it will be almost invisible, so most people won’t even notice that you’re straightening your smile. For best results, you must wear your Invisalign trays for at least 22 hours a day.
As you continue treatment with your Invisalign aligners, your teeth will gradually shift and move into place. At every stage of your treatment, you will be able to see progress and see how far your new smile will take you. Invisalign in Calgary.
Just as providing Invisalign treatment options for Adults, we also have Invisalign for Teenagers and Children. In addition, we offer the Invisalign Teen treatment which differs from traditional Invisalign in a few ways such as:
Under the Invisalign Teen treatment, there is an indicator on each aligner which fades away after wearing for two weeks. This technology enables us to determine if the movements are complete and ready for the next phase. It also acts as a reminder for patients to wear the aligner for the full 22 hours as well.
We understand that mistakes happen and that it can sometimes be easy to lose your aligners. With Invisalign teen, you have 6 complimentary replacement aligners, instead of the 2 aligners provided under a regular Invisalign treatment just in case your child misplaces their trays.
Many teenagers still have permanent teeth emerging from beneath their gum line. For this reason, there is additional space in the aligners designed to make room for any adult teeth still emerging.
Invisalign can fix just about any orthodontic problem that a conventional full-term bracket and wiring style system can fix. This includes crooked teeth, minor and moderate over/under bites, and teeth gaps. What’s more, tests have proven that they’re equally as competent in achieving those results.
The luxury of Invisalign aligners means that they get the job done without disrupting your normal daily life. Activities such as socializing with friends or going on a date wearing braces are no longer a problem.

For the majority of people, the answer is Yes. However, Invisalign is not a turnkey solution in that your dentist’s input into the design of the aligners can have drastic impacts to your results. As well, Invisalign must be worn a minimum of 22 hours a day to see the movements necessary.
The Invisalign® system uses a series of clear, removable aligners. As you change to each new set of aligners in your series, your teeth gradually move until they reach the desired position. This process can take months to complete.
Misaligned teeth can lead to airway issues, premature wear, tooth loss, and periodontal (gum) disease. Properly aligned teeth reduce the risk of tooth chipping, breaking, and wear, which could cause pain and lead to expensive procedures in the future to save your teeth. Proper alignment also reduces stress on the jawbone and TMJ.

The Canadian Dental Association recommends every child have an orthodontic assessment no later than age 7. That’s because not all orthodontic problems can be treated if we were to wait for all adult teeth to be present. Waiting on treatment can lead to a less than ideal result.
In an orthodontic consultation, you will get an opportunity to tour the office, meet the doctor and the team. The doctor will look at your mouth and assess the complexity of your treatment and review what treatment options are available to you. Together, we will discuss any concerns you may have with your orthodontic treatment.
