Surrey Invisalign Treatment
Is Invisalign the Best Choice for My Teeth?
Invisalign is a highly effective treatment for straightening teeth. The Invisalign treatment hinges on the use of custom-made clear plastic aligners that are virtually invisible inside the mouth.
The main advantages to choosing Invisalign treatment to straighten your teeth or correct your bite are:
What is Invisalign, and How Does it Work?
Invisalign is the leading brand who manufactures clear aligners, an orthodontic appliance that moves teeth through a series of custom-fit clear plastic aligners. Patients will wear each set of aligners for approximately 7-10 days to allow the teeth to move into the same shape as the tray, before moving on to the next tray. The aligner can be removed for everyday activities such as eating, drinking, and flossing. When not engaging in any of these things, the aligners must remain in the mouth.
Each aligner of the series is like individual steps in the overall plan to move the teeth from their current location to the final desired position. One of the major advantages of Invisalign is that in-person office visits are required only every 12-16 weeks to monitor progress.

Is Invisalign the Right Choice for Me?
Invisalign is the ideal solution to treat any of the following issues:
Crowded teeth or overcrowding takes place when the jaw bone is too small for teeth to grow into the mouth on a straight trajectory. As a result, the teeth need to rotate and overlap against each other to fit in, creating crookedness and malalignment.
Like a jigsaw puzzle, teeth needs to be in a certain shape and size to have the best fit against each other..
An open bite occurs when the front upper and lower teeth slant in an outward direction, preventing them from touching each other when the patient bite down.
The opposite of an overbite, an underbite is seen when the lower teeth along the lower jaw protrude out further than the upper front teeth. Underbites are also often the product of incorrect jaw alignment.
An overbite is evidenced when the upper jaw and teeth are extend too far over the teeth on the lower jaw resulting in the appearance of protrusive upper lip and teeth, or buck teeth. Overbite is the result of a mismatch in the size between upper and lower jaw bone sizes, with an abnormally small lower jaw bone being the most common.

Why Choose Invisalign?
Invisalign’s aligners are not just invisible; they are also removable. Being able to remove your orthodontic appliances means you can continue to eat all of the foods you love while undergoing treatment. No more saying goodbye to your favorite sticky, hard, chewy, or soft foods. With Invisalign, you can pursue teeth straightening without having to sacrifice the things that you love.
Cleaning your teeth is also much easier with Invisalign’s clear aligners. The clear aligners are also much less likely to cut, scrape and poke your gum or tissues during your orthodontic treatment.
Since the doctors are able to map out the entire treatment from start to finish and produce aligners for every step of the process, this means we are able to give you 3-4 months worth of aligners and only see you to monitor the progress of the treatment.
