Comox Invisalign

Do you need braces to correct alignment or bite issues with your teeth? Would you like an invisible, comfortable and convenient alternative? Invisalign aligners are clear plastic aligners that correct orthodontic issues such as crooked or misaligned teeth without highly visible and hard to clean braces. Not only are the aligners invisible but you can remove them while you eat and while you brush your teeth.

How it Works

Invisalign works in a similar fashion as braces. Over time the aligners gradually and gently turn and guide your teeth into proper alignment. The process takes approximately a year, depending on the amount of correction you need. You may need to wear a retainer for a short time after the treatment to help your teeth remain in their new alignments.

When you are using the aligners you just slide them on over your teeth much as you would a sports guard. The aligners are replaced every two weeks with a new set. You’ll need to wear the aligners while you sleep but you can remove them while eating or brushing.
