The Clear Alternative to Traditional Braces
So many people utter the simple phrase, “I didn’t even notice they were there!” when talking about Invisalign®. At our Langley, BC office, we are proud to offer this discreet orthodontic treatment.
Many patients are surprised to know that the benefits of properly aligned teeth extend far beyond a confidence-building smile. It also helps with your oral health and functionality of your smile. In fact, any aligned smile is advantageous to all aspects of your health.
You can trust our doctors to put the health, beauty, and function of your smile above all else.
How Does Invisalign® Work?
Keeping Teeth & Gums Healthy
Swollen, red gums are often the result of teeth that are either too widely spaced or over-crowded.
When teeth are aligned properly, gums fit more securely around them, giving your mouth the strongest defense against potential periodontal problems.
Evaluating Function to Protect Teeth
A misaligned smile can wear down your teeth prematurely and cause functional issues, such as sensitive teeth, headaches, and jaw pain (TMJ).
Questions we ask at your initial Langley, BC Invisalign® appointment include:
- Is your bite off?
- Are there any bite interferences, which may be causing damage?
- How is your jaw function being affected by tooth position?
Answering these and other questions about the function of your teeth and jaw help us recommend the best treatment for you.
Maintaining a Good Routine
When your Invisalign® treatment has been completed, we want your teeth to be both straight and beautiful. With Invisalign® removable aligners, you can continue brushing and flossing your teeth throughout treatment the way you normally would, making it easier to maintain your oral health.
The Right Treatment for a Beautiful Smile
Invisalign® may not be the best treatment option for every patient. In some cases, Invisalign® may be used in combination with other dental and orthodontic treatments. In other cases, it may not be recommended at all. Rather than pushing a specific type of treatment upon you, our goal is to help you find the best option for your smile based on your particular needs and concerns.
