Dr. Cory Liss is an Orthodontic Specialist offering both Invisalign and Invisalign Teen Treatment in Calgary
Consider Invisalign to get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted – without braces. A consultation with Dr. Liss can determine if Invisalign is right for you.
What Is It?
Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing, so you can smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign is made with 3D computer imaging technology.
Why Would I Want It?
Not only are the aligners invisible, they are also removable, so you can eat and drink what you want during treatment, plus brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. And, no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your doctor’s office getting adjustments. Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start, so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
How Does It Work?
You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position Dr. Liss has prescribed. You’ll visit Dr. Liss about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages nine to 15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
