Invisible braces for better smiles in Gloucester, ON

When you smile into the mirror, do you notice a healthy, happy smile that reflects a charming and friendly personality, or do you notice teeth that are crooked, misaligned, or a bite that is out of place? Could straighter teeth give you a much-needed boost in confidence?

Often the advantages of a straighter smile are not only cosmetic in nature. In fact, teeth that are aligned properly means that your teeth are easier to keep clean leading to a healthier mouth and thus, better health and wellness. However, regardless of the cosmetic and health benefits, many patients would rather put up with misalignment than endure years of orthodontic treatment with metal brackets, sharp wires, and rubber bands. Now, you have another option.

Dr. France Chevalier has been helping patients in Gloucester, ON, achieve a happier, healthier smile without traditional braces. Instead, many of her patients opt for Invisalign, which utilizes clear, plastic alignment trays. While the best benefit of Invisalign braces is the confidence patients have while wearing clear aligners, there are also several other advantages. While traditional braces can be uncomfortable because of rough and sharp metal brackets, invisible braces are smooth and comfortable. In addition, Invisalign trays are removable so that patients can easily brush and floss their teeth, leading to a healthier mouth. The trays can also be removed while eating instead of needing to avoid certain foods.

Invisalign is a great choice for adult dental patients who have busy lives or professional careers. The treatment plan utilizes a number of alignment trays that are worn for two weeks before moving onto the next tray in the treatment series. Each tray gently moves the teeth in predetermined increments. Because of this, patients don't need to visit the dentist as frequently as they do with traditional orthodontics.

It's important to mention that invisible braces aren't perfect for everyone. Occasionally, patients would achieve faster results with traditional braces. In addition, patients who have severe misalignment may not be a candidate for Invisalign. To determine if Invisalign would help you achieve the smile you've always wanted, call Dr. France Chevalier today to schedule a consultation.
