//Invisalign treatment – Some FAQ
Invisalign Treatment Orthodontist Aurora Family dentistry

What is Invisalign treatment?

Invisalign treatment is a process in which the patient is provided a series of clear, removable aligners that are worn on top of the teeth. These aligners gradually straighten your teeth. Invisalign is elegant, there are no brackets and wires and certainly none of the restrictions that you would have with metal brackets.

What are Invisalign clear aligners made of and what do they look like?

Invisalign aligners are thin and fit snugly over your teeth. The Invisalign aligners are made of a thermoplastic material called SmartTrack®. This is a flexible plastic — created exclusively for Invisalign treatment. Invisalign clear aligners are FDA-approved and contain no BPA, BPS, latex, or gluten.

How will Invisalign treatment straighten my teeth?

Your dentist at Aurora Family Dentistry will create a unique, digital treatment plan that maps out the exact movements of your teeth. Your Invisalign clear aligners are then designed to apply the right amount of force to the right place at the right time based on your plan. Your dentist will be with you every step of the way to monitor your progress and ensure your aligners fit correctly.

What are the primary benefits of Invisalign treatment?

Invisalign clear aligners are thin, clear and virtually invisible — so much so that people may not even notice you’re wearing them. You can remove them to eat and drink, to brush and floss, or for special occasions. There are no metal brackets or wires that could irritate your mouth or break.

Will Invisalign work for Teenagers?

According to Invisalign themselves, As the most advanced clear aligner system in the world, they have successfully improved over 5 million smiles, including 1 million teen smiles.

Am I guaranteed to have straight teeth with Invisalign treatment?

Every smile is unique, your initial consultation with your dentist at Aurora Family Dentistry will be very important. During this consultation, your dentist will help define what changes the Invisalign treatment could potentially do for your smile. We, of course, cannot guarantee a particular treatment outcome. However, your dentist will be able to guide you to choose what treatment goals may be achievable.

COVID-19 UPDATE

We recognize the trust you place in us as your family’s Dental office.

That’s why we wanted to share an update on the actions we are taking at Aurora Family Dentistry, to keep you, and our team members safe amidst the COVID-19 outbreak.

The World Health Organization has declared the outbreak of the COVID-19 coronavirus a pandemic. We in Canada are also being affected by this pandemic.

At Aurora Family Denitstry, we would like all our patients, staff and service providers to adopt safety-first protocols recommended by Health Canada.

The Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario (RCDSO) has recommended that all non-essential and elective dental services should be suspended immediately. As a consequence, Aurora Family Dentistry Offices will be closed with immediate effect to the general public.

However, RCDSO has also advised that Emergency treatment should continue, and as a result, our phone numbers will continue to be operative during business hours, and any emergency will be seen by the dentist as soon as possible.

In order to mitigate the impacts of COVID-19, everyone has a role to play. It takes more than governments and actions from the health sector to protect the health and safety of Canadians.

Each one of us can help ourselves and be prepared in the event of an emergency by understanding how coronavirus spreads and how to prevent illness.
