Invisalign Clear Aligners
The almost invisible treatment option
What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is an orthodontic system of aligning teeth by use of a series of clear aligners. These aligners are custom-made for each patient. The virtually invisible aligners gradually cosmetically reposition misaligned teeth to effect a great smile. This is done without braces. The aligners are like “contact lenses on the teeth”.
Why people prefer Invisalign®?
The ease and convenience of use of Invisalign® clear aligners have made this system the choice of hundreds of thousands of patients. Dr. Halpin was one of the first certified providers in all of North America.
Invisalign® is comfortable and has little or no affect on speech. Most people would not notice you’re in treatment. This won’t disrupt your lifestyle. You can even remove them for special social occasions. No metal wires or braces to irritate your mouth.
How Invisalign® works?
State-of-the-art advances in 3-D computer graphics technology are now available with Invisalign®.
Dr. Halpin would evaluate your teeth to determine what can be achieved by progressive aligners such as Invisalign®.
Photographs and impressions are made.
CAD (Computer Aided Design) software is utilised to simulate incremental tooth movements during treatment. Dr. Halpin would evaluate modify then approve the treatment plan with his technicians who are now in Canada. Advanced 3-D printing is used to manufacture precise digitally made models of your teeth at each stage of your treatment. These models are used to manufacture the clear aligners.
How Invisalign® can improve the health of your mouth
Teeth that are rotated, too widely spaced are crowded can more easily trap bacterial plaque which contribute to unhealthy conditions including bad breath, red or swollen gums, bone loss and dental decay. As Invisalign® straightens your teeth, they become less prone to decay periodontal problems. Unlike braces and wires, Invisalign® trays are removed for flossing and brushing easily.
