Invisalign® Yorkville the Real Deal
Sturm & Associates is one of the few dentists in Toronto who is able to provide you with the best alternative to wires and brackets, Invisalign®.
Unlike DIY dental solutions that you buy online, Invisalign® is only available from a licensed and trained provider.
If you attempt to alter your teeth yourself you could be looking at some serious damage to your teeth and your gums.
Invisalign® Clear and Comfortable
Not all clear aligners are comfortable. In fact, some patients abandon other types of clear braces because they are too thick making it impossible to live a normal life.
Clear plastic aligners need to be thin and comfortable because they are worn 22 hours every day.
If you aren’t wearing a comfortable set of clear plastic aligners you too will keep them in the drawer. If you do it will only slow down treatment time.
According to Dr. Janice Lo from Sturm & Associates, Invisalign® clear plastic aligners are used to straighten mild to moderate crooked teeth.
What is Invisalign®?
The clear choice for straightening teeth, Invisalign® has been around for decades. This makes it the only option to consider for tipped and crooked teeth. Invisalign® clear plastic aligners are also great for small spaces between teeth and mild cross or over bites.
Patients who are good candidates for Invisalign will wear the aligners for 22 hours every day removing when eating, flossing and brushing.
Every patient will be given 11 to 31 sets of Invisalign braces swapped every 7 to fourteen days depending on Dr. Lo’s instructions.
Is Everyone Suitable for Removable Braces?
Of course, if you have a an extreme underbite or anything else that is considered severe Dr. Lo will probably recommend conventional wires and brackets to straighten teeth.
This is another reason you should leave the DIY clear aligners alone. Why? because some people are just not suitable for clear removable braces.
Best Alternative to Conventional Braces
Crooked teeth aren’t just an aesthetic issue. According to Sturm & Associates straight teeth help prevent gum disease and tooth decay because they are easier to take care of.
If you have crooked and chipped teeth it’s like running an obstacle course when you brush and floss.
Straight teeth mean fewer cavities. Straight teeth also mean less chance of gingivitis or the more serious periodontal disease.
