No braces. No wires. Just aligners.
At Alliston Orthodontics we can deliver an amazing orthodontic experience with removable aligners in most cases. This is how we achieve the coveted rank of Diamond Top 1% Provider. What does that honor mean you might ask? Well, for starters it means we are pretty much ortho rockstars when it comes to Invisalign. Just to put it in perspective – to reach this top status means treating at least 240 Invisalign patients a year
Invisalign is made to fit into your life – not interrupt it. Invisalign uses a series of clear, customized and removable appliances called aligners. With Invisalign, you can continue to eat all your favorite foods and stay active with the activities you love, while not having to worry about brackets or wires breaking! It’s a win-win.
Why Would I Want Them?
Not only are the aligners virtually invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. The aligners are also more comfortable than traditional braces, with no metal or wires, which also usually means you spend less time in our office getting adjustments.
Invisalign treatment also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start, so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
How Does It Work?
You wear each set of aligners for about one week, and remove them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to their final positions.
You’ll visit us about once every 8-10 weeks to ensure your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 10 to 20 months, but will vary from case to case.
