Straight teeth are the ideal goal for many people. Not only do they look great, but they are also easier to clean and keep healthy.
That’s why orthodontic treatment is so highly sought after.
For a long time, though, the most common way to straighten teeth was with very visible and uncomfortable metal braces.
Invisalign is an excellent alternative to braces that can help patients of any age straighten their teeth discreetly.

What exactly is Invisalign treatment? Invisalign leverages clear align therapy, allowing you to straighten your teeth without metal braces.
Over a number of weeks/ months, you progress through a series of clear aligners that you wear for generally two weeks at a time. Each aligner tray is custom-made to gradually move your teeth into their correct position. Throughout the process, you check in with our Invisalign dentist in Oakville to ensure your treatment stays on track!
Invisalign is a modern alternative to traditional metal braces. Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually shift teeth into the desired position. The aligners are custom-made for each patient and are worn for at least 22 hours a day. Patients typically receive a new set of aligners every two weeks until treatment is complete. The dentist guides you through the process, ensuring that everything works as planned. After you complete your aligners, you receive a retainer to help preserve your new, straight smile!
Both braces and Invisalign address dental alignment issues to help you get a straighter smile. However, the two have very different considerations. Invisalign offers several benefits over traditional braces. The aligners are also more comfortable than metal braces and can be removed for special occasions or when brushing and flossing. Therefore, you don’t have to worry about food restrictions or difficult maintenance like you do with braces.
The length of Invisalign treatment can vary depending on individual factors such as the complexity of the case and the patient’s compliance with wearing the aligners. The average treatment length is 6 to 18 months. However, our experienced Invisalign dentist will provide you with a custom estimate for your plan.
