Wickham Clear Braces for AdultsFree 30 minute consultation

Invisalign is the leader in clear aligner orthodontics. These removable trays straighten your teeth without the need for conventional metal braces. Instead, the aligners nudge your smile into the desired position over a period of time.

What to Expect During Treatment

When you wear Invisalign, the treatment process is relatively straightforward. Just wear your aligners for a minimum of 22 hours per day and change them out every two weeks as prescribed. You’ll have enough time to remove them for meals and to brush or floss your teeth.

Most of our patients complete their Invisalign treatment in about a year. We’ll be able to give you an estimated duration at the time of your initial evaluation (every person’s needs are unique).

If you’re ready to move forward with getting Invisalign, we’ll take a set of pictures, X-rays and impressions to send to Invisalign labs. Your aligners will be ready to pick up a couple of weeks later. Every 6-8 weeks, we’ll have you stop by to evaluate your progress and send the next several sets of your clear orthodontic trays home with you.

Advantages of Adult Invisalign

Invisalign was developed with adults in mind. Because of the discreet design, our patients can enjoy benefits like

  • No irritating wires or brackets
  • Flexibility to enjoy more foods
  • Fewer appointments
  • Discreet braces others won’t notice
  • Easier brushing and flossing
  • Lower risk of decay and gum disease

Can Teens Wear Invisalign?

Yes. Teens who are responsible enough to keep up with their trays and wear them as directed make great candidates for treatment. Patients this age can choose to wear Invisalign Teen, a specially designed series made for younger patients.

Both Invisalign Teen and traditional Invisalign trays have built-in wear indicators that make it easier to track progress. When the trays have been worn the full two weeks, the blue dot on the inside fades, signalling that it’s time to change them out with the next set.

Maintenance After Invisalign

As with any other type of orthodontic treatment, our Invisalign patients will need to have some kind of a retainer or retention device after they complete their therapy. This measure will prevent their teeth from relapsing into the previous position, protecting their time and monetary investments.

Is Invisalign Really Invisible?

The aligners used in Invisalign are made of clear BPA-free plastic. When worn over your teeth, they’re practically invisible. To see them, you would need to look closely.

Since food or drinks can cause stains under your trays, you’ll need to remove them for meals or snacks. Clean your teeth before putting your aligners back in. To prevent discolouration and buildup, clean Invisalign with a soft toothbrush, lukewarm tap water and a nonabrasive toothpaste.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does Invisalign cost and what is the process involved?

Complimentary information session: Come and meet our amazing Invisalign dentist at 7 Pearls Dental and find out if Invisalign is suitable for you. Ask as many questions as you want and gather as much information as possible, and if you’re ready, we can start the process by taking some photos (after a clean if required), and some impressions that will be sent to Invisalign to generate a 3D simulation.

Review your 3D simulation. Here’s the exciting part where you can watch your teeth move into their new position. From here an accurate estimation of treatment time can be made as well as cost and what treatment option from those listed below would be most suitable for you.

Approximately 2 to 3 weeks later, you are all set to pick up your aligners. From this visit, you’re on your journey to straighter teeth! We’ll review you every 6-8 weeks to ensure everything is running smoothly.

At the end of the treatment, we will place retainers on your teeth which helps maintain your new straight smile.
