At Beacon Smiles Dental we 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.
So how does Invisalign actually work?
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 a 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.
Why should you choose Invisalign?
The Invisalign aligners are made of clear plastic called Smart Track, and they are translucent, meaning they are the perfect option for those looking to straighten their teeth without the attention of others.
In contrast to the metal wire used in traditional braces that can often cause discomfort, Invisalign is made of soft comfortable, flexible plastic aligners designed to reduce irritation.
Improved Oral Hygiene
Of course, the removable aligners make it easy to maintain a healthy smile because there are no wires or metal brackets to inhibit your traditional brushing and flossing habits.
Fewer Dietary Restrictions
In addition, it is common that patients who have braces must refrain from eating many foods they previously enjoyed for fear of damaging their wires or brackets. Unlike traditional alternatives, Invisalign aligners are removable, allowing you to take them out during meals and maintain your usual diet throughout your treatment.

What conditions can Invisalign treat?
Invisalign aligners 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. So if you’re looking to enhance the appearance of your smile with the minimum of fuss, then talk to us about Invisalign aligners.

Have Questions? We can Answer!
Over the last 11 years, we’ve helped thousands of patients smile with confidence.
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.
