PROFESSIONAL INVISALIGN IN MISSISSAUGA

invisalign

Invisalign is a clear aligner system by which aligner trays are used to move teeth to align the arch. They are removable and invisible trays that are worn throughout the day, only to be taken out when eating and brushing your teeth. The trays are made from soft thermoplastic-like material by aligning technology that applies forces on teeth to move them. Sunray Dental Centre in Mississauga offers professional dental treatments, including Invisalign, for patients of all ages. It is a modern approach that is effective in achieving a healthy and perfect smile. One of the major advantages of Invisalign is that we can simulate the treatment digitally and show you the result before we start.

 

When you come in for your appointment, we will assess your dental condition and understand your goals. We will rule out any potential diseases in your teeth or gums before starting treatment. We will not move a tooth before making sure there is nothing wrong with it. Contact our dentists in Mississauga if you have any specific questions about Invisalign and request your appointment right away.

THE INVISALIGN PROCESS

Here’s what the process looks like:

A complete oral exam with X-rays

Control basic dental care (aka fix any problems with the teeth)

Take intra-oral scans and send them to align technology
Show a simulation of the treatment digitally and discuss it with the patient

Upon patient acceptance of the possible results, we will start your Invisalign treatment

Follow-up appointments are done every 6 weeks on average

INSERTING YOUR ALIGNERS

Gently push the aligner over your front teeth then apply equal pressure in the back molar areas to push the aligner into place. 

 

Do not bite your aligners into position. This may damage them.

REMOVING YOUR ALIGNERS

Use your fingertips to pull down on the inside of your right and left back molars and slowly pull the aligner off of your molars. Next, you will grab the right and left back ends of the aligner and slowly work your way forward gently prying the aligner away from your front teeth.

DURATION AND INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE

  • The aligner should be worn FULL TIME. 
  • You can remove your aligners when:
    • Eating
    • Drinking something other than water
    • Brushing and flossing your teeth
  • After you eat or drink we recommend brushing your teeth before replacing your aligners. If you do not have time or access to brush, please rinse your mouth with water to remove food debris then brush when you get home.
  • When eating or drinking please store your aligners safely in your Invisalign case.
  • Change your set of aligners once every two weeks. 

CLEANING YOUR ALIGNERS

We recommend cleaning your trays using a toothbrush and clear soap or clear mouthwash. You may also use toothpaste or denture cleaner, but these may cause your trays to become cloudy. Usually, this is not a problem since patients change their trays weekly. Coloured mouthwash can stain your trays.

LOST AN ALIGNER

Lost an aligner? Life happens… no worries! Please move forward to your next aligner set if you are a few (1-2) days away. You may need to wear this set longer (2 weeks) in order for it to track properly. 

 

If you are not a few days away, go back to your previous aligners and contact our office. But please do not wait too long as this can set back treatment.

FAQs

  • How Often Should I Visit My Dentist?
    We recommend you visit your dentist every six months at least. Depending on your dental condition - how well you care for your teeth and gums, any existing or potential problems, tartar buildup on your teeth, etc. - our dentist may suggest a personalized schedule. These routine checkups aim to catch minor problems early before they become severe and expensive problems to fix.
  • Do I Need a Dental X-Ray Every Time I Visit the Dentist?
    X-rays help your dentist catch minor problems before they develop into bigger ones. A healthy adult without cavities or other dental issues probably won’t need to get x-rays for every appointment. If your dental situation is less stable, your dentist may ask you to get more frequent X-rays to monitor your progress. Please feel free to ask your dentist if you ever have any questions about your treatment.
  • When Should I Take My Child for the First Time?
    The Canadian Dental Association encourages parents to take their child to a dentist for the first time anytime between the age of 6 months to a year or whenever the first tooth erupts. It’s good to teach your child about the importance of dental health at an early age. Besides getting them used to regular teeth brushing, limit the sugary treats you give your child, and focus on healthy food choices from the beginning, along with annual dentist visits. You can browse the CDA blog for more helpful information on all aspects of dental health and its importance for your overall well-being.
