TREATMENT IN WESTLOCK
Imagine straighter teeth and a better bite pattern, without having to wear
braces—even if you’re over 21. It’s possible for Alberta Invisalign
patients! This system is so discreet, most people won’t even know you’re
undergoing orthodontic treatment.
INVISALIGN ... HOW THE TREATMENT WORKS.
Patients receiving Invisalign in Westlock begin with a
series of clear, smooth, plastic aligners that fit comfortably over your
teeth. Every two weeks, the aligners are changed. Each aligner is custom
made with precise designs, to steadily and gradually guide your teeth into
an ideal placement. Because they are customized specifically for your teeth,
they remain comfortable and secure in your mouth. Your Invisalign system is
crafted specifically for your Leigh Smile Center treatment plan, resulting
in a more functional, straighter, and more pleasing smile. Many adults find
that Invisalign could be a great choice for them, depending on their unique
case and treatment plan.
First introduced to the market in 1999, Invisalign was
developed by an adult orthodontics patient who came up with the theory that
if his dental retainer could make his teeth move in small increments, then a
series of successive retainers could combine to effect large-scale
repositioning of the teeth. Since then, treatment with Invisalign has proven
to be a popular option for people in Alberta seeking a discreet way to
obtain a straighter smile.
Invisalign can be used to treat many orthodontic issues:
Overly crowded teeth
Widely spaced teeth
THE TREATMENT PLAN:
treatment plan starts with a consultation with Dr. Shideh Pejman at the
Leigh Smile Center office in Westlock, Alberta to determine if Invisalign is
the best choice for you. Then, x-rays and impressions of the teeth are taken
and sent to Invisalign, where they will be used to create a 3D digital
image. From that point, a precise treatment plan and series of aligners are
developed to guide your teeth into an optimal position.
Treatment with Invisalign is simple. You can remove your
aligners when eating, allowing you to continue to enjoy your favourite foods.
When removed, they also allow you unimpeded access to your teeth when
brushing or flossing, resulting in continued good oral health. The aligners
can be cleaned using Invisalign cleaner, or can simply be brushed and
For best results, the aligners should be worn at least 22
hours every day. Removing them for long periods will extend the amount of
time needed for treatment. If participating in sports where protective mouth
gear is required, simply remove the Invisalign aligner, store it safely, and
then re-insert it as soon as possible. The procedures and protocols can
all be explained to you at the Leigh Smile Center.
