Orthodontics, Downtown Ridgetown Dentist

What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign® is an orthodontic treatment that gradually aligns teeth using clear, removable aligners.

Incorporating orthodontic technology with 3D imaging software, Invisalign® allows us to offer customized aligners.

It's a suitable orthodontic treatment for adults and is really popular among teens with active lifestyles who want the flexibility that Invisalign® offers.

You can remove your Invisalign® aligners whenever you wish. Being able to remove the aligners means that you can continue to enjoy your favourite food and drink.

With removable aligners, cleaning and flossing teeth is far easier with the Invisalign® system than with traditional braces, resulting in less chance of post-orthodontic decay.

Traditional Braces

Depending on your smile, you may require braces as your orthodontic treatment. Braces work by applying continuous pressure over a period of time to slowly move teeth in a specific direction.

As the teeth move, the bone changes shape as pressure is applied.

The time required for braces varies from person to person based on the severity of the problem, the amount of room available, the distance the teeth must travel, the health of the teeth, gums, and supporting bone, and how closely the patient follows instructions.

On average, however, once the braces are put on, the average time span is one year to 18 months.

After braces are removed, patients are required to wear retainers 24 hours a day, except when eating, for one year and then only a night for a period of time.

Dr. Li provides braces for patients in Ridgetown and surrounding areas. Call for a consultation today.
