Braces & Invisalign® Treatment in Coquitlam

Many adults would like straight teeth but do not want to show braces. Invisalign® is an excellent alternative for these patients. Invisalign® is a custom-made appliance made of medical-grade, FDA-approved plastic designed to straighten your teeth progressively. These aligners are a clear, effective, and comfortable way of moving your teeth. Each tray is slightly different from the one before it, moving your teeth closer and closer to the desired result. Invisalign® is an excellent appliance choice for those individuals with higher aesthetic demands. Being removable and clear, they are comfortable and easy to manage.

At Coquitlam Centre Dental Clinic, we offer professional Invisalign® treatment and services to people residing in Coquitlam.

The Invisalign® Treatment Process

The Invisalign® treatment process involves several steps to ensure your teeth are gradually moved into their desired position. Here's an overview of what to expect during your Invisalign® treatment at Coquitlam Centre Dental Clinic:

  • Initial Consultation: During your first visit, our dental team will evaluate your teeth and bite to determine if Invisalign® is the right treatment option for you. We will discuss your treatment goals and answer any questions you may have about the process.

  • Custom Treatment Plan: If Invisalign® is suitable for you, we will create a custom treatment plan based on digital scans or impressions of your teeth. These will be used to create a series of custom-made aligners that will gradually move your teeth into the desired position.

  • Aligner Fitting: Once your aligners are ready, you will come in for a fitting. We will ensure that your aligners fit comfortably and provide instructions on how to wear and care for them.

  • Wearing Your Aligners: You will wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks before moving to the next set in the series.

  • Monitoring Progress: Throughout your treatment, you will have regular check-up appointments with our dental team to monitor your progress and ensure your teeth are moving as planned.

  • Refinement: In some cases, refinement aligners may be needed to fine-tune the results. These aligners are similar to the initial set but are designed to address any remaining issues.

  • Retainers: Once your treatment is complete, you will be provided with retainers to maintain the alignment of your teeth. It's important to wear your retainers as instructed to prevent your teeth from shifting back to their original position.

  • Enjoy Your New Smile: After completing your Invisalign® treatment, you can enjoy the benefits of a straighter, healthier smile. Your confidence will be boosted, and you'll be able to smile with pride.

Advantages of Invisalign® Over Traditional Braces

Invisalign® offers several advantages over traditional braces, making it a popular choice for many patients. Here are some key advantages of choosing Invisalign® treatment at Coquitlam Centre Dental Clinic:

  • Aesthetic Appeal: One of the most significant advantages of Invisalign® is its aesthetic appeal. The aligners are clear and virtually invisible, making them a discreet option for straightening your teeth.

  • Comfort: Invisalign® aligners are made of smooth plastic and are custom-made to fit your teeth comfortably. They are less likely to irritate your cheeks and gums compared to traditional braces.

  • Removability: Unlike traditional braces, which are fixed to your teeth, Invisalign® aligners are removable. This means you can take them out to eat, drink, brush, and floss, allowing for better oral hygiene during treatment.

  • No Dietary Restrictions: With Invisalign®, there are no dietary restrictions. You can continue to enjoy your favorite foods and drinks without worrying about damaging your aligners.

  • Shorter Treatment Time: In many cases, Invisalign® treatment can be completed in a shorter time frame compared to traditional braces. This is because the aligners are custom-made to move your teeth efficiently.

  • Improved Oral Health: Straighter teeth are easier to clean, reducing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Invisalign® can help improve your overall oral health in addition to giving you a straighter smile.

  • Customized Treatment: Each set of Invisalign® aligners is custom-made to fit your teeth and move them into the desired position. This personalized approach ensures optimal results and a more comfortable treatment experience.

  • Predictable Results: Invisalign® uses advanced technology to map out the movement of your teeth from start to finish. This allows you to see a virtual representation of your treatment plan and the expected results before you even begin treatment.

These advantages make Invisalign® a popular choice for patients seeking a discreet, comfortable, and effective way to straighten their teeth. If you're interested in Invisalign® treatment, contact Coquitlam Centre Dental Clinic today to schedule a consultation.
