Can Oakville area patients enjoy invisible braces for straightening teeth?
Oakville and Burlington, Ontario patients who are dissatisfied with the alignment of their smile are often worried that their dentist will suggest braces. When patients hear of braces, they think of metal brackets and wires covering their smiles for many months. Fortunately, traditional braces have changed a lot over the years, and now there are other options available for patients to consider such as invisible braces.
Invisible braces are a great way to reposition the smile without metal brackets and wires. These braces are better known as Invisalign. Invisalign uses clear trays to slowly reposition the teeth and allow patients to enjoy a more beautiful smile in a discreet manner.
Invisalign aligner trays are made of medical grade plastics, which are strong and smooth. They are clear, which means that when patients are wearing them, they are hard to distinguish from the rest of the smile. This is why many teenagers and adults love using Invisalign – it is not noticeable and allows them to feel confident throughout treatment.
These trays are used all day and night and should only be removed from the dental arch when patients are eating or caring for their smile. Dr. Shefali Tuli wants patients to understand that if they do not comply with treatment, they may experience delays in treatment and incur additional costs. Following the instructions will ensure patients get the results they desire in the time estimated at the beginning of treatment.
Dr. Shefali Tuli understands that Invisalign may not be for everyone. This is why she offers alternatives. This includes traditional braces with lightweight brackets and wires, and Six Month Smiles, which uses tooth-coloured wires and clear brackets.
