Scarborough Invisalign

These comfortable plastic aligners are “invisible braces”

Scarborough Invisalign - invisible braces

If you’ve always dreamed of having straight teeth, but didn’t want to bother with metal brackets and wires, you’re in luck! At Markham Eglinton Dental Centre, we offer the popular new “invisible braces” called Invisalign.

It’s very simple -- we create a series of clear plastic aligner trays, custom-made to fit your teeth. Every two weeks, you’ll switch to a different aligner, and your teeth will gradually shift into their proper places.

Straight teeth are attractive, and create a beautiful smile. But the Invisalign process is about more than just appearances -- it’s also beneficial to your health.

When your teeth are in their ideal positions, they are able to fit together and function properly. When your teeth are not naturally in those ideal positions, you can run into problems with gum disease, pain, chipping, and even bone loss.

If you suffer from spaced teeth, overly-crowded teeth, crossbite, overbite, or underbite, you may need orthodontic treatment. Some patients think orthodontic treatment is just for teenagers, but many of our adult patients are choosing the comfortable convenience of Invisalign. You’re never too old to take control of your smile.

Here are just a few of the ways Invisalign at Markham Eglinton Dental Centre could help you …

Bite problems:

Your upper teeth should naturally overlap your lower teeth a bit, so they can bite together in proper occlusion. If your jaws and teeth are naturally too far forward or too far back, you may have a bite problem. Bite problems can cause pain and damage to your teeth if left untreated. Talk to us about how Invisalign can improve your bite.

Crowded issues:

When your teeth are properly aligned, they form a U-shaped arch. This makes it easy to brush them and floss between each one. If your teeth are crowded together, it makes it difficult to clean them properly, and that puts them at risk for decay. Some people are self-conscious about having crowded teeth, and wish their smile was properly aligned. Talk to us today about how Invisalign can correct crowded teeth.

Spacing issues:

If you have spaces between your teeth, the gaps can cause problems with your alignment and occlusion (bite). Spaces can be corrected with the help of orthodontics. When you're missing a tooth, the surrounding teeth slowly shift their position in an attempt to fill the gap. After losing a baby tooth, it's important to allow room for an adult tooth to grown in. Talk to us today about how orthodontic appliances can help maintain that space.

Q: How does Invisalign work when they are no brackets or wires?

A: Invisalign aligners work just like traditional metal braces – they correct the positioning of your teeth by aligning them into the proper U-shaped arch, leveling them to the proper height, correcting your bite, and perfecting the way your teeth fit together. Instead of wires and brackets, you’ll wear a series of clear plastic aligner trays, switching to a new one every two weeks until you get the desired results.

Q: Is Invisalign an option for adults?

A: Absolutely. Our adult patients love Invisalign because the aligner trays are practically invisible -- they can carry on with their careers and not feel embarrassed by metal brackets and wires. The end result is still straight, beautiful teeth!
