Orthodontic treatment has evolved so much over the past 25 years that today’s treatments in no way resemble the treatments of the past! Today, you can choose braces that are virtually clear, such as Invisalign® aligners, to straighten your teeth and effectively align your bite.
Northside Dental can fit you with clear acrylic aligners dependant on the extent of your orthodontic condition and the degree of treatment that you’ll need.
Orthodontic treatment is designed to correct malocclusions, or structural problems with your teeth and bite. Invisalign® clear aligners can correct the following problems:
- Overcrowding: where your teeth don’t all fit comfortably in your mouth
- Abnormal or uneven spacing between teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Overbite: when the upper teeth overlap over the lower front teeth
- Underbite: when the lower front teeth overlap the upper front teeth
- Crossbite: when the upper and lower teeth don’t meet properly
Invisalign® provides detailed correction, producing straight teeth, without the need for braces. Using a series of clear acrylic trays molded to your teeth, Invisalign gently guides your teeth to proper alignment.
The trays are fabricated to the exact intricacies of your teeth and gum line. We take a 3D image, so there is no need for a goopy impression! Your tray will be custom made for you for comfort and results.
One of the best features of the Invisalign treatment is that the trays are removable, so you can take them out to brush and floss your teeth normally, saving you the challenges of having to clean your teeth while wearing braces and wires.
Throughout the course of treatment, every few weeks you will be fitted with new trays that will initially feel a bit tight, as each new set of trays will bring your teeth closer to the final goal.
If at any time one of your aligners is lost or broken, we can easily replace it.
Adults who need teeth alignment love Invisalign because no one knows they’re wearing braces!
The team at Northside Dental recommends Invisalign® as it is a safe and effective treatment that produces great results. Invisalign® is also safe for use on children as young as six years old to prevent future orthodontic problems by intervening while the teeth are still developing.
For our patients who need sturdier correction, we may opt to refer you to an orthodontic specialist for more in-depth orthodontic treatment.
