What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign® treatment uses a series of virtually invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that allow you to smile more during treatment as well as after. Your Invisalign® clear aligners are custom-made for you. The aligners are virtually invisible and fit snugly over your teeth.

Why Would I Want It?

Not only are the aligners virtually invisible, they are also removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also more comfortable than traditional braces, with no metal or wires. This means you spend less time at your dentist's office getting adjustments.

How Does Invisalign® 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. Each aligner shifts your teeth slightly, moving them horizontally and vertically and even rotating them when needed. Your aligners are engineered to use the right amount of force in the right place at the right time.


When you change to the next set of aligners (typically every week) your teeth gradually move into position, following a treatment plan mapped out by your doctor. The 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.

Invisalign® — Pros and Cons

                               Not sure whether to get Invisalign® or not? Please consider the following pros and cons to make an informed decision with your dentist:

  • Does insurance cover braces in Ontario?
    The coverage for orthodontic treatment will depend entirely on your provider and chosen plan. Not all insurance plans will account for orthodontic treatments, so discussing this caveat with your insurance provider is essential. Generally, dental insurance contracts provide 50% coverage for braces, but they are a separate benefit in the contract. To get a clearer idea, we recommend reaching out to your dental insurance provider and asking: The amount of treatment that will receive coverage Limits to the procedures Age restrictions, if any
  • What food/drinks should I avoid while wearing braces?
    Traditional braces need you to steer clear of certain foods and drinks, such as: Chewy foods such as licorice Hard foods such as nuts Sticky foods such as chewing gum Foods that you must bite into, such as apples Crunchy foods such as popcorn Carbonated drinks Fizzy drinks Natural fruit juices Sports and energy drinks You can evade these restrictions by opting for Invisalign® clear aligners. If you'd like to learn more, please speak to our team.
  • What Problems Can Occur with Braces?
    Several problems might occur during your braces treatment. Some of them are: Gum disease if the teeth are pushed out of the jawbone Tenderness due to teeth bite into the gum roof
  • How Should I Recognize a Potential Bite Problem?
    You might require orthodontic treatment if your teeth are crowded, protruded or out of position. Some other signs of a bite problem are frequent cheek biting, speech difficulties and mouth breathing.
  • Will My Teeth Be Extracted During Orthodontic Treatment?
    Extraction might be necessary if you have impacted teeth or severely crowded teeth.

While a pros and cons list sheds some light on your treatment options, the best way to decide is to visit a professional for an evaluation.
