Are you dreaming of a picture-perfect smile without the cumbersome metal brackets and wires? At Campbell Orthodontics, located in the heart of Peterborough, we are proud to offer the revolutionary Invisalign system, a clear, comfortable, and convenient alternative to traditional braces.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that is redefining how we achieve beautifully aligned smiles. At Campbell Orthodontics in Peterborough, we’re proud to offer this state-of-the-art solution to our valued clients. But what exactly is Invisalign, and why is it becoming the preferred choice for so many orthodontic patients?
Invisalign is a teeth-straightening system that uses clear, removable aligners customised to fit your teeth perfectly. These virtually invisible aligners work by applying controlled force to your teeth, gradually shifting them into their optimal position.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign leverages advanced 3D imaging technology to create a precise digital impression of your teeth. Your custom aligners are then crafted from BPA-free plastic using this digital impression. Each set of aligners is worn for 1-2 weeks before being replaced by the next in the series, gently guiding your teeth into their desired positions.
Aesthetics and Comfort: The Invisible Advantage
Choosing Invisalign at Campbell Orthodontics is more than just an investment in your oral health; it’s a commitment to enhancing your lifestyle and boosting your self-confidence.
Enjoy Life Without Metal Braces
Invisalign aligners are transparent, making them virtually invisible. They allow you to smile confidently without the aesthetic impact of traditional braces. A 2022 study confirmed that clear aligners are significantly less noticeable than metal braces, a feature that 95% of patients found appealing.
Unlike metal braces, Invisalign aligners are smooth and comfortable. You won’t have to deal with mouth sores or discomfort from sharp wires. A 2021 survey revealed that 70% of patients found Invisalign more comfortable than traditional braces.
Eat What You Love
With traditional braces, certain foods are off-limits. But with Invisalign, you can continue to enjoy all your favourite Peterborough delicacies. Simply remove your aligners during meals!
Easy Oral Hygiene
Maintaining oral hygiene is straightforward with Invisalign. You can brush and floss your teeth normally, helping to keep your mouth fresh and healthy throughout your orthodontic journey.
Convenience and Flexibility: Your Life, Your Terms
Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces: The Clear Winner
Invisalign aligners are custom-made using 3D imaging technology to ensure a perfect fit and precise tooth movement. They’re just as effective as traditional braces in treating common orthodontic problems, from minor tooth movements to more complex cases.
Comfort and Convenience Comparison
Say goodbye to the discomfort of metal brackets and wires. Invisalign aligners are made from smooth, flexible plastic for a comfortable fit. Plus, they’re removable, allowing you to eat, drink, and maintain your oral hygiene routine without any hassle.
Invisalign treatment costs are comparable to those of traditional braces, and many dental insurance plans cover Invisalign just as they would other orthodontic treatments.
Treatment Time Comparison
On average, Invisalign treatment time is comparable to that of traditional braces, but the actual duration will depend on the complexity of your case. You will most likely wear between 18 and 36 sets of aligners throughout the treatment. Your treatment can also last anywhere from 6 to 24 months. However, this is all dependent on the initial condition of the teeth.
