Think of your family doctor. From a cold to more serious health conditions, you can often find the care you need under one roof. Thanks to advances in dentistry, families have plenty of options at the dental office. These include cosmetic treatments, restorative procedures, and orthodontic solutions. Dr. France Chevalier and our team can meet a variety of needs at our dental practice in Ottawa, ON. This makes it convenient for our patients who would like to straighten their teeth without needing to find an orthodontist. For mild to moderate tooth misalignment and some malocclusion cases, we provide Invisalign.
Explaining Invisalign treatment
- Before treatment - The first step toward straighter teeth and a more confident smile is scheduling a consultation appointment with Dr. Chevalier. She will examine your mouth, teeth, and gums and ask you about your medical history. During the appointment, you may have impressions of your dental arches taken. We use the impressions to create a 3-D image that can demonstrate potential teeth movement throughout the treatment. We send these impressions to an Invisalign laboratory for fabrication of the clear aligners.
- For the treatment - We will ensure the customized aligners fit precisely. We will ask you to wear the aligners 20-22 hours per day, removing them for eating, brushing, and flossing. Every month to six weeks, we will check your progress. Treatment can last a year to 18 months.
- After treatment - After treatment, we may recommend wearing a retainer at night to prevent teeth from shifting.
Benefits of Invisalign
Comfort and convenience are two benefits patients enjoy with Invisalign treatment. They like the comfortable plastic aligner trays. The autonomy of wearing the trays when they want is another advantage. With Invisalign, the destiny of a beautiful smile ultimately lies in their hands. They do not have to worry about the appearance of metal brackets and wires when they smile or the potential irritation the metal can cause their cheeks and gums.
