Do you avoid showing off your teeth? Does your crooked smile embarrass you? Well, there are ways to fix imperfect teeth gently and discreetly. Dr. Kulwant Turna offers Invisalign near you in our Cambridge, ON office. Patients love straightening their teeth with clear aligners. The removable trays are made of flexible plastic, so they are comfortable to wear. Even more, no one will know that you are wearing invisible braces unless you tell them. Call FlossDental Cambridge now to get started.
Custom-fitted aligner trays target many mouth issues, such as gaps between teeth, crowding, rotated, crooked, or tilted teeth. Your Cambridge, ON dentist will provide a series of aligners. Each removable tray is worn for 1–2 weeks. Then you will graduate to the next one, gradually moving your teeth closer to the desired positions. Many patients achieve their ultimate goal in less than a year.
A properly aligned smile can not only improve your appearance but also safeguard your oral health. Straighter teeth are easier to clean, so your likelihood of developing cavities and disease is reduced. To start the process, Dr. Kulwant Turna will take x-rays of your entire mouth. We will also take a scan of your oral cavity and send that information to an outside lab. The Invisalign lab will return images of your smile, showing how it will change throughout treatment. That means you can view the finished result before we even begin.
Most adults and older teens are great candidates for Invisalign treatment. Advancements in dental technology today have produced aligners that correct mild to moderate orthodontic issues. At FlossDental Cambridge, we approve patients with under-bites, cross-bites, or over-bites and good oral health. The first step is for your dentist to perform a thorough exam. If any problems are detected, we must first treat them before we proceed.
Since every patient has unique needs and desires, treatment duration varies. However, in most cases, total correction is achieved in just 9–12 months. Once your teeth are perfectly aligned, you must wear a retainer for a couple of years or more to prevent reversion.
