Braces that make sense for your lifestyle

Whether you are an adult or a teen, wouldn’t it be great to see the progress of your orthodontic treatment as it happens?  With Invisalign this is possible.  A series of custom-made aligners are constructed for you by our Nanaimo Invisalign dentist and are worn for about 2 weeks.  The changes to your smile can actually be seen each time you progress to the next set of aligners trays.

Invisalign aligners are safe and comfortable

Invisalign aligners are made of a smooth, comfortable BPA-free plastic which will not irritate you’re the soft tissue of your gums and cheeks. Since the aligners can be removed, keeping your mouth clean is just as easy as ever.  With Invisalign there’s just no need to have metal braces that trap food and make it difficult to keep your mouth fresh.

Does Invisalign hurt?

A new set of Invisalign aligners can give a feeling of tightness and pressure – but this is natural – after all, the aligners are designed to create tension which slowly shifts teeth into their proper position.  In cases where the new aligners are really uncomfortable, don’t worry – we can adjust them.  In most cases though, this natural tension takes care of itself as you get used to it.

Does Invisalign require many trips to the dental office?

Under normal circumstances, you’ll only have to visit Dr. Mahara, in his Nanaimo dental clinic every 6 weeks. You can always check in with our clinic if you have questions, but the process does not require as many visits as you may have guessed.

How often can the Invisalign aligners be removed?

In order for the Invisalign aligners to be effective, they must be worn for a minimum of 22 hours each day.  This gives you up to 2 hours per day to remove your Invisalign aligners to eat, brush, floss, make an important speech or smile for an important photo.

How long is the Invisalign treatment process?

Not every Invisalign patient will have the same set of circumstance.  In general however, treatment takes about a year for adults. For teenagers using Invisalign, the length of their orthodontic treatment is about the same length of time as traditional braces would have taken.
