A recent study has found that more than 4 million people in Canada are in the care of an orthodontic specialist.
Well-aligned teeth, lips, and jaws work in sync to produce a lovely and healthy smile and have a great impact on your personality and when it comes to oral health, Canada is considered among the World leaders.
With increasing dental issues, scientists are finding new solutions to address the problems and Invisalign has transformed the orthodontic treatments to a greater extent. Invisalign is the modern and popular orthodontic treatment completely developed and based on the modern Align technology that usually requires X-rays, photographs and a 3D scan model of your mouth, teeth, and gums using ITero technology.
What Are Invisalign Aligners?
Invisalign clear aligners or braces are an excellent and nearly invisible substitute to the extrusive traditional metal braces made from the SmartTrack material, for controlled and defined tooth movement. The Invisalign is the flexible plastic form of the braces which is easily removable, virtually invisible and trimmed on the basis of an individual’s gum line, specifically designed to straighten your teeth by moving the teeth in small steps to their desired location.
What Types Of Issues Can It Address?
Invisalign can be used to treat several dental problems such as
- Crooked Teeth – A dental condition when one or more teeth are slightly bent or curved is called “Crooked Teeth”. There are several reasons behind crooked teeth mainly genetics, traumas or accidents. Whatever the case may be, orthodontics treatments particularly, Invisalign are used to effectively treat the crooked teeth.
- Overbite – When upper teeth lie in front and slightly farther than the lower teeth, the condition is said to be an overbite. An overbite makes it difficult for an individual to chew, bite or even smile.
Invisalign is known to be the most persuasive treatment for an overbite as it puts pressure on the teeth to move and align accordingly with the lower teeth.
- Open Bite – The open bite is a term used to describe when the upper and lower teeth are not lining up properly and are unable to make physical contact with each other.
Invisalign can fix open bite, overbite, and underbite by fixing your teeth into position so they lie straight and well-aligned.
The Average Treatment Time and Approximate Cost for Invisalign
The Invisalign is a bit on a costlier side than the traditional braces treatment because it is developed by modern and advanced techniques and the patient usually requires longer treatment time, unlike the other orthodontic treatments.
However, the treatment time and approximate cost for the Invisalign vary from individual to individual depending upon the severity of their dental problem. On average, the treatment may cost between $2500 to $5000 or even more depending on the nature of the dental issue.
Invisalign treatment was once considered only for teens and kids, however, with increasing demands, the treatment is widely used on adults. Dr. Lily Lo at the Lawrence Avenue Dental has been providing Invisalign services for ages to straighten teeth of the teens and adults. She uses ITero technology to take the digital 3D scans of your teeth and craft a beautiful smile design.
