Many people suffer from crooked teeth, or an incorrect bite (also referred to as malocclusion) - which can have a negative impact not only on chewing function and speech, but on overall self-esteem.
The good news is, the right orthodontic treatment can successfully correct an imperfect smile - and our dentist in Thornhill is proud to be a certified Invisalign® provider, also providing free consultations to patients interested in achieving a straighter, more attractive smile!
Invisalign® clear aligners are a modern, removable and virtually undetectable alternative to traditional metal and wire braces. Capable of correcting mild to moderate cases of malocclusion including crowded teeth, overbites, underbites, crossbites, gap teeth and open bites, Invisalign® is worn on the upper and bottom teeth as a series of custom-made aligners designed to gradually shift the teeth into their new positions.
Patients will be required to change to a new set of aligners every 1 to 2 weeks, as directed by our Thornhill dentist. Each set should ideally be worn for 20 to 22 hours every day to successfully reach the desired result in the shortest amount of time.
As every case is unique, the time required to fully correct a smile will vary from person to person. However, on average, treatment with Invisalign® can take around 12 to 18 months, with results often noticeable within a matter of weeks.
Invisalign® clear aligners have become an extraordinarily popular choice today for achieving a beautiful, straight smile - and it’s “clear” to see why.
