Teeth straightening with Invisalign® or traditional orthodontics in Oakville, ON
posted by Burloak Centre Dentistry
Having beautiful, straight teeth sends friends, family, and new people you meet the message that you are healthy and full of vitality. In addition to affecting how you feel about your smile and your confidence, crooked teeth or a misaligned bite can contribute to oral health problems such as joint pain, uneven wear and tear, and greater susceptibility to decay. At Burloak Centre Dentistry in Oakville, ON, we understand that patients have different needs and preferences, which is why we offer multiple options when it comes to teeth straightening and correcting bite issues.
Invisible orthodontic treatment with Invisalign®
At Burloak Centre Dentistry, we help patients achieve stunning smiles discreetly with Invisalign treatment – in fact, we were named an Invisalign 2020 Preferred Provider! Invisalign uses a series of clear, custom-made aligners that gradually straighten your teeth, one tooth a time. The aligners are worn for at least 22 hours per day and are switched out every two weeks until your ideal smile is achieved. This method of tooth straightening is:
Nearly invisible in your smile
Designed for comfort with durable, BPA-free plastic aligners and no brackets or wires
Fully removable so you can continue to enjoy your favorite foods and properly clean your teeth during treatment
Effective, with results in an average of just 12 months
Versatile and can be used to treat a variety of misalignment issues, such as crooked teeth, gaps, overcrowding, overbites, underbites, and open bites
Both teens and adults can benefit from Invisalign treatment; however, it is not the best option for more severe cases of misalignment or bite problems. In these cases, traditional orthodontics are the better choice.
Traditional braces have been used for many decades to straighten teeth and properly align the bite, but that doesn’t mean we still use the same braces technologies that were used long ago. Modern braces wires are made from thermal reactive wires that are stronger and lighter, making them more comfortable and less likely to break, and brackets can be made from tooth-colored ceramic to blend in with your smile. Other types of orthodontics treatments are also available to help adjust the size, shape, or alignment of the dental arch and jaw and may be used in conjunction with braces.
At Burloak Centre Dentistry, we know that the appearance of your smile is just as important as its health! Both Invisalign and traditional braces can help optimize both for a beautiful, healthier smile. Our team of dentists includes an experienced orthodontist who loves helping children, teens, and adults achieve the terrific smiles they deserve.
To begin your teeth straightening treatment, your first step is a consultation with a dentist to discuss your desired end results, treatment preferences, and budget. Based on this discussion and a comprehensive evaluation, we will help you determine whether Invisalign or traditional orthodontics are the best choice for your individual needs.
