Why try Invisalign® before braces?

Straightening your smile with Invisalign® is easy! In fact, Invisalign offers a number of benefits when compared to traditional metal braces. Here's more from our Coquitlam orthodontist on why you should consider Invisalign for straightening your teeth. 

About Invisalign

Straightening your smile has never been easier or more comfortable. Invisalign orthodontic treatment consists of a series of clear custom aligners that are almost invisible when worn.

Invisalign's series of custom aligners will allow you to straighten your teeth without that hassle of brackets or wires that comes with traditional metal braces.

Your personalized treatment plan will map out your orthodontic treatment schedule. Throughout your treatment with Invisalign,  you will wear each set of aligners for two weeks, then switch to the next set in your series.This process continues until your treatment is complete.

Invisalign vs Braces

Invisalign clear aligners have a number of benefits that make them an ideal treatment option when compared to traditional braces.

Invisalign for Different Stages

Invisalign offers orthodontic aligners specially designed for adults, teens and young children. Invisalign, Invisalign for Teens, and Invisalign First for children are designed to address the unique needs of each stage in dental development. 


If you are concerned about the aesthetic of traditional metal braces, you'll love Invisalign's clear plastic aligners. Invisalign's aligners are made from a thin clear plastic that can hardly be seen when worn. Typically, people won't even notice that you're wearing them. 


There's no need to give up enjoying any of your favourite foods when you straighten your teeth with Invisalign. Invisalign aligners are removable. All you do is remove your aligners and store them in their handy container while you eat. When you're finished eating, simply brush and floss your teeth, rinse your aligners under water and return them to your mouth. Now you won't have to miss out on the popcorn when you're enjoying date-night at the movies! 


Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign aligners don't require adjustments. That means you will only need to visit the orthodontist for checkups and progress reviews throughout your orthodontic treatment.
