Invisalign®

Metal braces were once the only treatment used to straighten teeth. Today, Invisalign is a ground-breaking orthodontic technology, which utilizes invisible aligners – also known as clear braces – to correct misaligned teeth. Instead of wires attached to your teeth as with traditional braces, your teeth can be straightened invisibly.

All The Benefits

Invisalign® is clear

allowing you to straighten your teeth without anyone’s knowledge.

Invisalign® is removable

allowing you to eat and drink what you want during treatment.

Invisalign® allows you to brush and floss normally

to maintain good oral hygiene, thereby eliminating the risk of plaque buildup, periodontal disease and tooth decay.

The Invisalign® process

has been proven effective in orthodontic practices and clinical research across the nation.

All The Benefits

Crowding

When your teeth are too close together, they can become crooked and cause discomfort, difficulty cleaning, and lead to other dental problems.

Spacing

Gaps between your teeth are generally undesirable cosmetically, but they are also a dental concern for increasing the chance of tooth decay.

Cross-bite

When your lower and upper teeth are not aligned properly, it can cause difficulty chewing and lead to jaw and other dental problems.

Overbite

Aside from generally being a cosmetic concern, overbites can also cause eating difficulties and other dental issues.

The Process

1. During your first visit to Invisalign Toronto, a treatment plan will be mapped out with your goals in mind. Then, impressions of your teeth will be digitally taken in order for us to work with a computerized 3-D image throughout the treatment process.

2. Kurtz will plan your tooth movements for your entire treatment timeline. You will be able to see a virtual representation of your teeth before, during, and after completion of the Invisalign process so that you know what your smile should look like when the treatment is complete.

3. Based on your dentist’s precise treatment plan, customized aligners will be created with specialized Invisalign technology, for you to wear at each stage of your treatment. A full treatment typically includes 20-30 aligners per arch.

4. Each set of aligners is worn for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush and floss.

5. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will shift slightly each week until they have straightened to their ideal position.

6. You will visit Dr. Kurtz approximately once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as initially planned.

7. Total treatment time averages at 9-18 months, although this will vary for each individual case.
