How to straighten your teeth without braces

Bayley Dental in Waterloo is happy to offer the latest in orthodontic technology. Imagine being able to straighten your teeth without braces. In the past, this was unimaginable. Today, it’s a reality with Invisalign. 

 

The Invisalign technology uses a series of clear, virtually invisible, removable aligners to straighten your teeth. The aligners resemble clear tooth-whitening trays and are custom-made to fit and move your teeth—all without metal wires or brackets.

 

The process starts with Dr. Bayley, an Invisalign-trained dentist, using 3D computer imaging technology to design an individualized series of custom-made aligners. You will wear each set of aligners for two weeks, and only remove them to eat, drink, brush, and floss. Your teeth will begin to move, little by little, each week until they reached the prescribed position. The aligners only work when they’re worn, so you’re asked to wear them day and night, and only remove them when necessary. 

 

You’ll visit Bayley Dental about once every six weeks to monitor the treatment’s progression. The total time for the treatment  is usually between nine and 15 months, with an average of 18 to 30 aligners worn, but this can all vary from case to case.

You can expect some discomfort each time you change to a new aligner, but this is temporary and is a good indication that the treatment is working properly.

Invisalign can be used to treat a vast majority of common problems  for both adults and teens. Whether it be minor improvements to your smile, or more involved problems including, overcrowded or widely space teeth, overbites, under bites, and cross bites.

If you’re considering corrective treatment for your teeth, you should consider Invisalign. Speak to the professionals at Bayley Dental to find out more about how the treatment could work for you.
