Invisalign®

Woman inserting invisible bracesThe team at Port Kennedy Central Dental Care provides an array of solutions to make sure that you love your smile. We welcome all ages, from children to adults. If you or your teen’s teeth aren’t as aligned as you would like, you may be interested in orthodontic treatment.

All over the world, Invisalign is becoming an increasingly popular choice for orthodontics. The many benefits of it include:

  • Transparent aligners
  • Can be removed at your convenience
  • Short treatment times
  • Fewer checkup appointments required
  • Comfortable with no wires or brackets
  • Lower risk of tooth decay since the aligners can be taken out

What to Expect With Invisalign Treatment

The first step is to have a free consultation with our team. We’ll discuss Invisalign treatment with you and determine if you may be a candidate. Once you have decided to move forward, we’ll need to gather the information required by the Invisalign laboratory. Impressions, pictures and other data are necessary to custom-create your aligners.

You’ll also be able to see before-and-after pictures of your treatment so that you’ll know what your teeth will look like once they have reached their final position.

Once the laboratory creates your aligners, they’ll be sent back to our clinic. You can pick them up and begin wearing them straightaway.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many hours a day do I need to wear my aligners?

You should wear your aligners for 22 hours a day. They can be removed to brush and floss, eat meals or attend a social event.

Are they appropriate for children?

Invisalign is made for teenagers and adults.

How long will treatment take?

Treatment times may vary depending on the shifts that need to be made. The average time to complete Invisalign treatment is 12-18 months.

How do I keep my aligners clean?

You can clean your aligners with your toothbrush and running water.

Do I have to avoid certain foods when I have Invisalign treatment?

No! One of the greatest advantages of Invisalign is that you won’t have to change your diet. Since your aligners are removable, you can take them out to eat any food that you want.

Is there pain involved in Invisalign treatment?

It is normal to feel some sensitivity in the initial days when you begin wearing a new set of aligners. Since it means that your teeth are shifting, it’s a positive sign. Anything you may feel is mild and will be resolved quickly.
