Metal braces have been used for decades to guide teeth into place, correcting cosmetic alignment and bite problems. They are glued onto the surface of your teeth, attached with wires, and tightened slowly every 6-8 weeks to move your teeth into place. While braces in Calgary are still a popular option, we offer Invisalign as a gentler and more discreet alternative to traditional braces.
Why Choose Invisalign
Less Soreness & Zero Risk of Cuts
The metal wires of traditional braces are prone to irritate the cheeks, lips, and tongue. Invisalign, on the other hand, uses aligners to guide the teeth gently into the desired position. Because the trays are made of smooth plastic, there is no risk of cuts or bleeding.
More Discreet & Less Maintenance
Braces create the “metal mouth” effect leading children, teens, and adults alike to be self-conscious about their appearance. Many patients choose Invisalign in Calgary over braces because they are so much more discreet. In addition, Invisalign trays require less maintenance than the brittle wires and brackets of braces.
No Forbidden Foods & Less Risk of Cavities
Conventional braces easily trap food, increasing the risk of cavities if they are not cleaned properly. Braces can also break off from eating sticky or hard foods, resulting in an emergency visit to the orthodontic office. Invisalign aligners can be removed while eating, so you can eat whatever you want!
Each individual provider determines the cost of braces. As such, orthodontics vary in price. Some orthodontists charge the same fees for braces and Invisalign, while some charge more for Invisalign and some charge more for braces. At Impact Orthodontics, we offer Invisalign as our preferred way to straighten teeth.
Many people believe that plastic is not strong enough to move or align teeth. However, it requires significantly less pressure than most people think. Invisalign is very effective at guiding teeth into the desired position. The aligners work by pushing on the teeth consistently throughout the day, and as each tray is exchanged for a slightly different set, the small changes work to move the teeth gently into place.
