Dr. Seddon and Dr. Dhillon have been an Invisalign Preferred Provider since they started treating patients with Invisalign. This means that he has worked on many different cases at all levels of difficulty including combined cosmetic treatment, surgery, and, various other types of advanced orthodontic procedures.
Invisalign is the virtually invisible way to dramatically and gently move your teeth and improve your smile. If you want the smile you know you should have, but can’t stand the thought of traditional metal braces, Invisalign may be for you. A series of clear, removable plastic aligners, the Invisalign system straightens your teeth to give you the smile you’ve always wanted.
The Invisalign system offers a number of advantages over the unsightly metal braces of traditional orthodontic treatments.
The first step is a free consultation to determine whether or not Invisalign is the best possible treatment for you. Next, scans of your teeth are taken with our cutting-edge iTero scanning system. Dr. Seddon and Dr. Dhillon use this information and Invisalign’s ClinCheck software to create a personalized treatment plan that maps out the step by step movements of each individual tooth. With this software, you will also have a preview of what your teeth will look like after treatment is completed before you even start. After that, you will receive your first set of clear, custom-made, BPA-free plastic aligners. Once you have your first set of aligners, we are happy to offer you a complimentary tooth whitening as well. After about two weeks, you will move up to your second set of aligners. You will continue to graduate from one set of aligners to the next every two weeks or so; we recommend check-up visits approximately every six weeks to ensure that your teeth are moving into place in line with your treatment plan. On average, treatment from first aligner to beautiful smile lasts around 7-12 months for most patients.
In order for the treatment to be effective, Invisalign aligners should be worn 22 hours per day and should be taken out only for eating, brushing, and flossing.
No. Invisalign aligners should be removed during meals, but unlike with traditional braces, there are no restrictions on what foods you can eat.
We offer a variety of flexible payment plans. Call us today to find out what works best for you.
Although every patient will be different, treatment usually takes about one year. Invisalign treatment usually requires less time than traditional orthodontic treatments as well.
While less painful than traditional braces, some patients experience tightness in the first few days. This is relatively minor and goes away quickly as your mouth becomes accustomed to the aligners.
Aligners can be cleaned using the Invisalign cleaning kit or alternatively, they can be brushed and then rinsed in lukewarm water.
Your aligners are custom-designed to fit firmly over your teeth, so it is unlikely that they will fall out, no matter what you are doing.
Invisalign can be used for many different types of bites; patients with widely spaced teeth, teeth that are too crowded, overbite, underbite or crossbite can all be treated using Invisalign. Call us today to book your free consultation to see if Invisalign is right for you.
