Abougoush Family Dental Care offers Invisalign® for Calgary residents. It is no secret that unaligned or crooked teeth are a major source of self-consciousness. Dental braces, which are commonly used to treat these cases, sometimes only serve to heighten our reluctance to smile. If you’re looking to straighten your teeth without the wires and discomfort that can accompany traditional braces, you should consider Invisalign® invisible braces in Calgary. Thankfully, you won’t have to do it alone. The dentists at Calgary’s Abougoush Family Dental Care will gladly explain the procedure, as well as thoroughly examine your unique dental circumstances, in order to determine if Invisalign® is right for you.

How Does Invisalign® Straighten Your Teeth?

The Invisalign® procedure is quite simple:

1

The first step involves the creation of personalized Invisalign® alignment trays based on the 3D computer imaging of your mouth, so that the trays fit perfectly. In addition to taking current images of your mouth, this technology also allows you to see how your teeth will look at the end of your Invisalign® treatment, enabling you to visualize the rewards of sticking with it.

Every two to three weeks, you will receive a new set of alignment trays from our Calgary office that gradually move your teeth into the proper position, working as invisible braces.

For best results, the dentists at Abougoush Family Dental Care strongly recommend wearing the trays as often as possible, and removing them only to eat, drink, brush, or floss.

What Are Some of the Benefits Invisalign® Offers?

Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign® does not require any dietary restrictions. Certain chewy or sticky foods like taffy can’t be chewed with traditional braces due to the fragility of the device. Invisalign®, on the other hand, can be removed when you eat so there is no need to limit your food or drink choices. Routine dental hygiene, like brushing and flossing, is also easier with invisible braces. Calgary patients will also find that Invisalign® eliminates mouth abrasions since there are no metal parts to rub up against the inside of your mouth. Lastly, invisible braces require that you just replace the trays with a new set that slowly shifts the position of your teeth. This means there’s no need for painful and time-consuming re-tightening and adjustments.
