Invisalign® Braces in Calgary at Thorncliffe Family Dental
If you have crooked teeth or gaps in your smile but are not interested in metal braces, Thorncliffe Family Dental offers an alternative with Invisalign clear braces in Calgary. This orthodontic system provides results similar to traditional orthodontics without the extra hardware.
Invisible Braces: A Clear Solution to Straight Teeth
While many brands and varieties of clear braces have been developed over the years, Invisalign trays are popular among patients for their high degree of customization and patented design, which allows for discreet treatment. Patients choose this brand of invisible orthodontics for the following reasons:
- Removability – The term clear braces can also refer to orthodontic systems that use white wires and tooth-colored brackets. In comparison, Invisalign® trays are not bonded in place; they can be removed for eating, as well as brushing and flossing.
- Convenience – While standard metal braces are difficult to clean around, and food can easily become stuck between bonded wires, Invisalign® makes it as easy as possible to keep to your current hygiene and eating habits. Patients with traditional braces must be careful to avoid soda, hard and crunchy foods, and other items that can damage or dislodge their appliance. Because Invisalign® dental trays are removed whenever necessary, there are no restrictions on your diet and no special tools needed to keep your teeth clean between uses.
- Confidence – Invisalign braces blend into your smile as soon as you put them in place. They are made from transparent plastic that is precisely shaped to only cover teeth. Unlike off-brand appliances, Invisalign® braces do not to cover gum tissue, which can make them look more obvious. The customized fit of these clear appliances allows you to look and feel your best while completing treatment.
At Thorncliffe Family Dental, we provide Invisalign® braces to ensure patients can maintain excellent hygiene throughout their treatment plan, and so they do not have to worry about metal dental appliances. Invisalign® treatment is also gentle on soft tissue, as there are no sharp brackets and wires that can irritate the inside of your mouth.
