Invisalign and other orthodontics to correct alignment issues in Oakville
Orthodontic treatments have come a long way over the years. Thanks to these advances, many kids and adults can straighten crooked teeth and correct their jaw alignment with Invisalign, a discreet alternative to traditional metal brackets and wires. Burloak Centre Dentistry has an experienced orthodontist on staff, so you can plan your treatment in the same office as your general dentist.
The oral health impacts of dental crowding and malocclusion
While many people may be embarrassed by their crooked smiles, crooked teeth and jaw alignment can affect your oral health. Crowded or crooked teeth can be harder to clean, making it easier for bacteria to hide and cause decay or gum disease. It can also affect the way your jaw fits together, adding stress to your TMJ joint and increasing your risk for snoring and sleep apnea.

Invisalign and orthodontic treatment can straighten your smile and reduce your risk for infections and airway disorders. In many cases, the process takes as little as a year to complete. Our dental team will evaluate your condition during your free consultation and educate you on what to expect from treatment.
The benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligner trays to correct your tooth and jaw placement with steady pressure. These trays are perfectly discreet in your mouth, and they allow you to easily clean your teeth and enjoy your favorite foods without worry. Invisalign uses advanced digital modeling to create a treatment plan that is often faster than traditional orthodontics and requires fewer visits to the dentist for adjustments.
You will wear each tray for about two weeks, 22 hours a day. As you advanced through the treatment plan, you will notice the improvements every time you smile. Your dentist will provide you with a retainer to help you maintain your results as your jaw adjusts to the new positioning. Invisalign can treat many of the common issues traditional braces can, but some patients with severe crowding or advanced malocclusion may not be good candidates.
