Invisalign Near You

At Somba Ké Family Dental, we offer Invisalign near you. Those looking to straighten their teeth and correct orthodontic issues may prefer this more discreet alternative to traditional braces. Not only are straighter teeth more attractive, but they also offer several health benefits, which include:

• Easier cleaning.
• Improved restorative outcomes.
• Less risk of uneven wear and broken teeth.
• Improved jaw function and comfort.
• Minimized risk of tooth decay caused by overcrowding.

So what makes Invisalign in Yellowknife different from other orthodontic treatments? Well, unlike traditional braces that consist of wires and brackets to gradually shift the teeth into alignment, Invisalign near you, is comprised of a series of aligner trays, which are designed to move the teeth closer to ideal alignment. Each series of aligners will fit slightly tighter than the previous series to push your teeth in their desired positions. You will wear your aligners for approximately two weeks before moving onto a new set. Your dentist may attach small buttons to your teeth to guide movement, which are called attachments, these are tooth-coloured and will be removed at the end of your treatment.

Invisalign aligners are:

• Smooth: They reduce tissue irritation and won’t cause cuts or sores in your mouth.
• Removable: They allow you to eat and clean your teeth just as you normally would.
• Clear: They won’t impact your appearance since they are virtually invisible, hence the name Invisalign.

In some cases, traditional orthodontic treatment may better suit a patient’s particular case. During a consultation for Invisalign in Yellowknife, your dentist will determine if you are eligible.
