INVISALIGN® AT GUELPH ORTHODONTICS
How it works
Invisalign® takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your dentist or orthodontist plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete. You’ll achieve a great smile with little interference in your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth.

1 -Talk to an Invisalign Provider
Our Orthodontist is a trained Invisalign provider and has many years of experience treating teens and adults with Invisalign. Keep in mind it is important to find a doctor who has received the proper Invisalign training and can truly evaluate your needs and determine how Invisalign can help you. Following your initial consultation, our orthodontist will discuss your case in detail to determine if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign. Invisalign is not intended for children and not all teens and adults will be a good candidate. Only your Orthodontist will know once the assessment is complete.
2- A Customized Treatment Plan is Created for You
We will take x-rays, pictures and impressions of your teeth. Invisalign will use these to create a digital 3-D image of them. From these images our Orthodontist will map out a precise treatment plan, including the exact movements of your teeth, and tell you the approximate length of treatment.
3- Receive Your Custom Aligners Based On Your Personalized Treatment Plan
Based on your individual treatment plan, a series of custom-made clear aligners are created specifically for you. These aligners are made of a smooth, comfortable, BPA-free plastic that won’t irritate your cheeks and gums. Simply wear them throughout the day, and remove them when you eat or to brush and floss your teeth. As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth gently and gradually begin to shift into place. And because they’re virtually invisible, most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them.
4- Wear a New Aligner as Prescribed by the Orthodontist
You will begin wearing a new set of aligners, advancing you to the next stage of your treatment. To monitor your progress, you will also have occasional checkups with your doctor, usually every six weeks or so. For best results and a timely outcome, you should wear your aligners 24 hours per day, throughout your entire treatment.
5- Reveal Your New Smile & Keep It Looking Great
This is when your treatment is complete!. You have reached the end of treatment and you will be smiling more than ever.
