Invisalign® Treatment in Thunder Bay
Oasis Family Dental is pleased to offer Invisalign® treatment for our patients who want to straighten their teeth. This treatment procedure uses customized aligners created specifically for each patient. The aligners are made from an invisible, plastic-based material which are worn over the teeth and gradually help to shift the teeth and straighten them.
Unlike traditional orthodontic braces, there are no metal clips or brackets. The Invisalign® aligner is hardly noticeable and most people will not even know you are wearing it. The aligners are able to be removed whenever you brush, floss, or eat throughout the day.
The entire treatment process is completed in stages, where a new aligner is used about once every two weeks, until your treatment has been fully completed. The stages of the Invisalign® process involve the following steps:
- Initial Consultation
- Creation of your Personalized Treatment Plan
- Fitting for Customized Aligners
- Replace Aligners Every Two Weeks Until the End of Treatment
For adults, the entire process could last up to year. With teens, Invisalign® treatment time is similar to that of traditional orthodontic braces.
