Consider Invisalign to get the beautifully straight teeth and smile you’ve always wanted — without braces. A consultation with orthodontist Dr. El-Bialy in Edmonton, AB can determine if Invisalign treatment is right for you!
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is the new choice for teeth straightening, and smile enhancing. Unlike traditional (metal braces), Invisalign uses a series of virtually invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that can straighten crooked teeth, close gaps, and adjust your occlusion for better health, confidence and beauty.
Clear plastic trays or aligners fit over your teeth to straighten your smile. Invisalign is backed by over 20 years of research, and the trays are made with 3D printing! Dr. El-Bialy is certified to administer Invisalign treatment!
Why would I want Invisalign?
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. They are also more comfortable than traditional braces, with no metal or wires, which also usually means you spend less time at Sphinx Orthodontics 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 Invisalign work?
You will wear each aligner tray for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. To achieve the best results, it is important to wear each tray for 20-22 hours a day.
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 our Edmonton orthodontist about once every eight to ten weeks so Dr. El-Bialy can ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages nine to 15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30 and will vary from person to person.
Who is a good candidate for Invisalign?
Adults and teens who desire to make a great first impression with straighter teeth and a more beautiful smile are good candidates. Invisalign can straighten crooked teeth, close gaps between the teeth, and adjust your bite. The best way to learn about Invisalign and whether it is right for you, is to schedule a consultation at our Edmonton orthodontic office.
Your Invisalign consultation
At your consultation you will meet with Dr. El-Bialy who will assess your smile and examine your teeth and tooth alignment to determine the right treatment plan for you.
You will receive a digital scan using iTero® digital impressions. This digital scanner is the technology that produces radiation-free 3D digital images of your mouth which form the basis for your perfectly fitted Invisalign trays. The procedure is comfortable, fast and accurate.
Dr. El-Bialy will evaluate your smile and your bite and create a personalized treatment plan designed to produce your new smile. And you will be shown your virtual treatment plan and Invisalign results virtually before you begin treatment! Then your customized aligners will be made to fit your plan.
